    $8.35 including postage for 7d remote shutter cord + more

    I purchased this off eBay and it arrived today, It took 2 weeks and I almost gave up. I tested it and all was good.
    $8.35 with postage what a bargain and it came with a LCD screen protector

    You have to wonder how they do it. $8 as opposed to $80!

    What's the quality like? Guess it doesn't matter you could buy 10 of them and still be infront, as long as it doesn't damage the camera.

    I bought one for about the same price a few months back for my 500D and it hasn't missed a beat.

    The quality seems to be ok, I was a bit worried about plugging it in for the first time, i was concerned about camera damage too.

    I only paid $3.93 for mine plus I think $2.99 for postage, and today I got informed that it has already been posted.

    I bought an el cheapo one very similar to this and it works a treat. I don't understand the difference in price, even buying aftermarket locally. I did the same with the lens hood for my 15-85. Cost $4.70 delivered and is as good as a genuine one.Surely the post would be more than that

    Great price. This type of remote is just a switch, it's either on or off, so the likely hood of it hurting the camera is slim to nil. So rest easy.

    I've had an el cheapo for about 12 months.

    Hasn't missed a beat.

    I took it out last night for some sunset shots my only gripe is that while pressing the button halfway to auto focus is a bit dodgy it
    is only a split second between AF and activating the shutter so i will now use camera to focus

    Aha the last little detail tells the story. I have a Canon remote and it is flawless.

    And it arrived today, postmarked NZ so how that happened I have no idea, I though it was coming from USA. Have not tried it yet.
