Overview: The Canon RC-6 IR Remote Controller lets you take
pictures while you are standing away from your compatible Canon DSLR camera.
Compared to the self-timer function built into many Canon cameras, the IR remote
controller gives you as much time as you need before shooting when you want to
be in the picture. It is also useful to minimize camera shake when taking
pictures such as night scenes or close-ups when the camera is mounted on a
tripod or other support.
Compatibility: The RC-6 Remote Controller is only compatible
with select Canon DSLR cameras which support wireless remote control shooting.
Effective Range: The maximum effective range of the RC-6
Remote Controller is approximately 16.4 feet when the remote controller is
directly facing the camera. The distance decreases when shooting at an angle.
Note: Remote control shooting may not be possible in
Release Modes: The RC-6 Remote Controller offers immediate or two-second delay shutter release
modes. It is also compatible with "bulb" mode.
Bulb Shooting: During bulb shooting, pressing the transmit button once
locks the shutter in the open state, an pressing it again closes the shutter. It
is not necessary to hold down t he transmit button.
Battery: The RC-6 operates off of a single CR2032 3-Volt
Lithium battery, which comes installed in the remote. The battery life is
approximately 6,000 transmissions.
