    $26 including shipping. Even if it doesn't work, I'm not out much money. I tried taking a night time shot over the weekend, and discovered I need a remote.

    It's coming from overseas, so I'm expecting a couple weeks before I get it, but that's fine.

    nope.

    This is for my 40D.

    search ebay for "phottix" and you'll find one for whatever camera you have.

    Is this the new one that can be used as a flash trigger too?

    I have the older version and it works great, but I'm interested in the new one now.

    I have that one, works fine.

    B mode doesnt work unless you're right next to it, but you would be anyway.

    Why does it suck for B mode?

    I likely won't use B mode too much.

    because having a shutter toggle is better than having to hold the button down the whole time
