Canon 450D remote connection help

450D has a jack connector for remote shutter release. It's the middle port on the left hand side of the body, between the USB connector and and the video out socket.

I have a practically identical one (1m lead not 3 though) and it's perfectly capable. At the end of the day it's only a switch. The prices charged for the Canon ones are utterly criminal.

i bought the same one about two months ago and the only thing i can fault is the jack is very tight when you plug it in and the button is a bit loose but other than that it feels rock solid, the cable is thick and feels very high quality, no worry of the wires breaking like cheap headphones.

wow. that is good. mind keeping us up to date on whether you receive it and how long it takes overall?

i might hold off and order a battery and remote at the same time!

sure will do, heres the link, its gone up to $6.55 with FREE delivery:smashin:
DealExtreme: $6.55 Canon LP-E5 Compatible 7.4V 1080mAh Replacement Li-Ion Battery for Canon EOS-450D/KISSX2/1000D

P.S The remote does exactly that, easy to use and cant fault it for under a fiver, but £4 delivery thru amazon is steep so I would go thru DX if your not in a hurry and get a battery and remote for under a tenner delivered:eek::thumbsup:
