    Remote for 7D... any feedback on this one?

    Hey all,

    I like the look of this, and I was wondering if anyone here has one.... http://www.jjcphotography.com.au/bra...cid=435&sid=79

    I've just emailed the company, so am now waiting on them. It looks good, and I like to be able to do different exposures without making changes on the actual camera. But I don't want to spend over 70 bucks if it isn't all that good.

    Here's hoping someone here can provide some feedback, coz I like the idea of buying from somewhere in OZ, and supporting one of the sites sponsors!

    You don't have 50 posts (but do have 30 days membership), so you should not be commenting on commercial issues per the site rules.

    However, go and post 3 good CC's on someone else's photos and I'll let this thread continue

    Check the Photix range from out site sponsors http://www.phottix.com/idevaffiliate...ate.php?id=117 (JJC are also sponsors)

    Hmmm - I may be missing something or stating the obvious but I think something needs to be made clear here.

    This item appears to be an add on to the TC-830N3, and not a stand alone product. Is that correct? I would hate to see you buy it and then realise you need something else to make it work.

    @fess67 Not an add on, but strangely named... calling it a cord.

    Should do what u ask.

    I use the yougnou versions... http://www.yongnuostore.com/. Cheaper, but they work just fine. Their new flash triggers that's support ettl are fantastic for the price.

    Thanks Kym for letting the thread continue

    The explanation of it was very confusing to me too. Saying it has a cord and stuff...

    I want a remote for my 7D, and what drew me to this was that it's touted as a remote for HDR photography, which I'd like to try one day. I know that the camera itself is usually adjusted to take the HDR shots, but from what I read, this actual remote can do that, and if that is the case I thought it would eliminate the likelyhood of the camera moving while making adjustments to the exposure settings....

    If it can't do what I think it can do with regards to exposure for HDR, then I'll go the Youngnuo route.

    Have a look at page 109 of your 7D manual. It shows you how to do AEB which will get you your HDR images. Set the shutter to H and it will take the multiple shots in one sequence with the shutter butter pressed, will let you have fun with HDR before your cord arrives
