The RC-6 Wireless Remote is a must-have tiny infrared wireless remote controller for compatible EOS DSLRs including the following:
- Digital Rebel T2i 550D
- Digital Rebel T1i 500D
- Digital Rebel XSi 450D
- Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi 400D
- Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT 350D
- Canon EOS Digital Rebel 300D
- Canon EOS 7D
- Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Measuring only .25″ x 1.25 x 2.5″ (6.5 x 32 x 63.5mm), the Canon RC-6 Wireless Remote easily fits in even a small pocket.
Unlike the Canon RC-5 Wireless Remote, the RC-6 will operate in either 2-second delay mode or will instantly take a shot (like the Canon RC-1 Wireless Remote).
Point the Canon RC-6 Wireless Remote toward the front of the camera (line of sight only) within 16′ (5m) and take the shot when you are ready. Or use it to start a video.
Using a wireless remote release eliminates camera motion related to pressing the shutter release – and allows you to be a subject in your photo. Being able to stay near your subject to assist in composition (or ease stress) is another benefit.
The Canon RC-6 Wireless Remote is powered by 2 CR2032 Lithium button batteries rated for about 6,000 transmissions. The Canon RC-6 Wireless Remote is a very useful device – and having no cord is great. You can even put it on your key ring.
