Shoot MC-36B timer remote cord for the Canon 550D

My timer remote cord for the 550D arrived yesterday - here's the unboxing video.

I ordered it for 24.30 Euros ($29.98) on ebay (shipping for free). The seller was "digital-winway" and shipping to Germany took less than two weeks. On the packaging the model is named "RS-60E3", in the instruction manual it's "MC-36B", which I think is correct (google search). Build quality is really good, the buttons seem to last a while and even the display is illuminated. Another great thing is that batteries are included, even if this is not mentioned in the article description. I would say this is definitely a good deal. By the way, the manual is in English.

This is not the cheapest remote cord for the 550D, but I decided to buy this one because it looks reliable and i has two batteries - which means it can work a while. It's also very important to mention that you can set the number of shots to infinity. This is what you need when shooting timelapses - and that's what I bought this thing for ;)

Some data:
timer delay: 0s up to ~100h
exposure time: 0s up to ~100h
interval: 1s up to ~100h
number of shots: 1 to 399 or -- (unlimited)
power: 2x AAA 1.5V alkine batteries
battery life: 2 months of continuous shooting

Here you go with my first and second test video and some tips for timelapse photography.



  1. Hi Jonni, nice unboxing.

    I am waiting for the result of your test for the timelapse movie.

    Once you do that, if you don't mind, I would like to share your experience with the eos550d.com reader.

    Have fun with your new equipment! :)

  2. Thanks for your comment!

    I tested the remote cord and it works great! I will post a video as soon as I got some good footage.

    Feel free to share anything from this site. ;)


  3. Jonni, thanks for the review, I am looking for a cheap one too that I can take on the family camping trip coming up so I can do some time lapse of the stars.

  4. Hey Dave, thanks for your comment!

    I can really recommend this timer remote - it works great with the 550D! I hope you'll share your timelapse when it's done.


  5. Hi, Jonni thanks for your willingness to share your experience with the Eos 550 D reader.

    I posted your experience here:

    Is it straight forward to use this intervalometer? I ask you because you didn't mention about this anywhere in your post.

    Thanks again.

  6. Yes, it's really easy to set up and use the remote cord. So easy that I didn't have to make a post ;)

  7. I purchased one for my canon 7d. I can't get it to fire. The ad said it was compatible with the 7d. Do you know any different?

  8. I'm sorry, but I really don't know if it works with the 7D... If the Ad was wrong send it back and get another model. It works fine for my T2i, don't want to miss it any more.

    Good luck and cheers,

  9. it's not compatible with the 7D, i made the same mistake!

  10. Can you use this to do normal tripod based single-shot work too?

  11. Yes, you can use it for shutter control.
