The RC-6 Wireless Remote is a must-have tiny infrared wireless remote controller for compatible Canon 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.
