5out of 5

Pros: Delay timer, Lightweight, Easy To Use

Best Uses: Landscape Photography, Self-Portraits, Time Lapse, Macro Photography, Portraits, Traveling

Describe Yourself: Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This remote timer is small, lightweight, and connects via the remote connection on the side of the camera. Two cables are supplied so it works with both types of Canon connections.

The delay timer is probably the nicest feature. If you want to be in the picture, you can set the delay, click, and then hide the remote so it won’t look like you’re gripping it in your hand. It also has a repeat feature so you can do time lapse shots.

The receiver can be fit onto the hot shoe, but I have let it dangle and it worked fine. It’s not so heavy that it will stress the cable.

I have tested it with both a Canon 5d (classic) and a 5d Mark III. Works great with both. I have not tested it to the maximum of its distance, but I know it works to within 50 feet.

Photoshopcafe Instructional Dvd: Perfect Exposure for Digital Photography the Zone System of Metering and Shooting by Tim Cooper

Great Information – Poor Presentation

3out of 5

Pros: Informative, Easy to understand

Cons: Misspellings, Not really a DVD, Grammatical errors, Typos, Requires computer

Best Uses: Everyday use

Describe Yourself: Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Was this a gift?: No

This is not a movie that you can watch on your TV. You must have a computer to watch the files. While I found it to be one of the best explanations of the zone system I have ever heard, the typos, misspellings, and grammatical errors were distracting.

Day 27 (3/23/12) – from a distance

childhood memories - from a distance

In the can

Remember these? Remember the smell of new film? The feeling of excitement and possibility (and a little fear) when you pulled the leader out and matched the sprockets to your camera’s? Don’t get me wrong–I love digital and I think I’m a better photographer for it, but working with film seemed to engage more of my senses.

Remembering the 90s: Lechmere

Remember Lechmere?

Many New Englanders of a, uh, certain age remember buying their appliances and electronics at Lechmere. We bought a TV or two, a dryer and maybe the washer, video cameras, coffee makers, and more there. It was a sad day when they closed.

What did you buy there?

Day 25 (2/22/12) – something pink

christmas cactus out of season

This is a cutting from my mother’s Christmas cactus. My sister snipped a few pieces and mailed them to me a few months ago and I’ve been rooting them. This one decided to bloom earlier this week, as if my mother were sending me a little reminder of her presence.
