I have just ordered a non-Canon Accessory.
This is not like me but I found one on ebay.
Canon remote switches are up to £100.
The ebay one is £15 inc p&p and has links to customer reviews of the Canon one saying how over priced it is!
Anyone got any experience of non-Canon remotes?

I use one that I purchased from B&H for my 30D, only realised it wasn't the Canon brand when it arrived. Works perfectly, even for bulb exposures.
The standard Canon Remote release's are £39.99.
That's the timer remote relaese thats £100,which isn't really needed unless you shoot frequently at exposures longer than 30 seconds,then it would be very useful.
Yes they are quite expensive for what they are,but then again so are most things to do with photography unfortunately.
I'm not familiar with the compatible releases,but I'm sure they're fine.There isn't really an awful lot to them.
I got mine from Hardman at Ebay, has a two stage button duplicating half and full trigger.
Got a link?
This could be the man
I upgraded my 300d to a 30d a few months ago only to find my original canon remote (£18.99) had a completeley different fitting to my new 30d. Another nice little earner for canon, considering they are exactly the same except for the actual adapter, twice the price seems a lot to pay IMHO. I got a replica one from Germany (Addit) and has worked fine, although it is a little bit rough around the edges compared to the original, does the job exactly the same.
