hi
what cameras that on and is that 6-7 meters behind the camera? (i changed the batteries incase that was it, but same)
Is anyone else using it with a Canon 450d or similar?


thanks
I first started using my RC-1 on an Elan IIe (50e) and now use it with my XSi (450D).

ok well similar to mine then, so thats normal. i want to be 5+m behind the camera.
So the RC1 is no good, ive ordered the radio remote as listed earlier, that goes about 100m max, so much better.

Good luck with it. We'll have to compare note at some point.

Cheers.

ok got the Radio remote. 100% better, works from anywhere and i havent run out of distance yet. You dont need to put the camera in 'remote' mode either, works on any setting.
It is of course a little bigger than the RC1 and has an attachment hanging from the remote port on the camera, but its smaller than the internet pics make it look. The hand held part has a small pull out ariel.
Pressing the button on the remote focuses the camera pushing it harder takes the picture or pictures if its in continuous mode, brilliant.

Simon,

I gather this remote is pretty good, can you confirm which one you purchased and how much (including shipping)?

Cheers

Chris

I ordered the same one, at least it looks the same. The brand on mine is Micnova.
