Use the Canon RC-6 Remote Control to relax the shutter of your compatible Canon SLR at a maximum distance of 5 meters. The remote control communicates with the infrared receiver on the front of the camera. That is why the RC-6 works only through the front of the camera. A remote control is useful for group photos or self-portraits. But it is especially necessary when taking photos with slow shutter speeds. When taking a photo, you do not have to touch the camera, so that movements are limited to the minimum. When you want to take pictures in the bulb setting, set the camera to bulb. Then you press éa016599848 once on the remote control to open the shutter. If you press the remote control again, the shutter will close again.
