    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Triggers Like A Champ

    posted by derrick on 10/16/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Simple remote trigger that just works. Nice flexible cable. Helps prevent moving the camera while using bulb mode. Five bucks! Supports half press for focus, and bulb mode. Build quality actually feels very good for five dollars.
    Cons:
    The trigger button is a little stiff to lock into bulb mode. The wire could be longer.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    A great copy of the original piece. Fits perfectly on my 18-55. Build quality is good enough for a piece of plastic.
    Cons:
    The matte area on the inside is not as good as the original, but does it really make a difference? Doesn't fit as snugly as an ...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Very stylish, looks great and fits in my pocket without a problem. The red is a nice touch.
