I've been looking at getting one for my 1000D, probably going to go with the Hahnel HRC 280 myself:
Hahnel HRC 280 Remote Cable Release for Canon DSLR's (80cm/2m) - Jessops
Thanks Iccz looks good, didnt see that it does a 1000D so maybe watch that yourself just in case.
that is 3 times as much as you need to spend to be honest , plenty of cheap but good enough versions on the internet if you look , i have one , forget the make , it is more than adequate
I use one I got off a certain well-known online tat-bazarre for about £4. Does the job perfectly.
Have you tried these wireless ones at all, or is it best to stick to a cable one?
Thye are slightly different.
I have a Canon wireless remote for my 450D, when you press the button theres a 2 second countdown until it takes the picture so you can pocket the remote and be in the shot. While it's counting down the LED on the front of the camera flashes.
Shutter release cables take the picture when you press the button.
I don't think so. The remote only works in remote 2 sec timer mode.
What I meant was that as most SLR's have a delyade/timed shooting mode I'd expect a cable release to activate that (if the camera was set appropriatly) just as if the button was pressde manually/locally....
yes, the cable release does work like that but the remote only works with the 2 second delay.
