    Default Self take equipment advice please?

    Hi all,

    I have a Canon 700d. Nice flip around screen; ideal for self-takes - but I am having remote control problems. When shooting with a good lens, say fixed 50mm, the remote is unreliable because of how far I am from the camera. In fairness, the remote control is unreliable even when shooting close range.

    Any advice? Any thoughts on corded cable/bulb release system?

    Thanks!

    Bulb or invalometer are the only way. Pic with the captor holding the remote are horrible. And they are so easy to use it makes no sense not to

    Sorry to sound simple, what exactly is that (I have always used a simple battery remote). Any recommendations for a Canon 700d? Thanks!

    Shenzhen timer shutter release - URS-7000

    Got mine off Amazon for 14. I use this with a 650D, just check its compatable, certain it will be.

    Id go for a tripod too.
    Maybe its because i'm a londoner
