Canon cable release from Hong Kong

Having just got a macro lens I realise that I will need a cable release for my 40D. The canon original costs about 25 - 41. From HK they are 2 + postage. I know you get what you pay for but has anyone actually bought and used one from HK and if so are they really the rubbish I would expect them to be. After all I can buy 10 for the same price as the Canon one.

Re: Canon cable release from Hong Kong

I bought one from a cheapy Hong Kong site and although a little plasticy and not perfect it does the job.

At a few pounds and for the ammount of times you'll probably not need to spend more

I got mine from go4dc on ebay. It took a week or so to come from Hong KOng but works perfectly.

I've just ordered a Canon 40d wireless one for 12 from another dealer big-is-camera and as I'm willing to risk losing that much I'll give it a go

Re: Canon cable release from Hong Kong

I will love to hear how you get on with that. I am just a bit wary about plugging anything cheap and electronic into my new camera.

Re: Canon cable release from Hong Kong

I bought a compatible cheap version from Hong Kong. It does look/feel cheap but all in all it works perfectly well It's a "Massa".

Re: Canon cable release from Hong Kong

I bought a Phottix remote release from an outfit on ebay. Works brilliantly on Nikon D80 and was 7.90 (but 7 PP) has excellent range, and never fails.

Re: Canon cable release from Hong Kong

My wireless one arrived today, fully tested and does exactly as described.

For 12 I'm well and truly happy

Re: Canon cable release from Hong Kong

The new Photix Cleon is getting good reviews. It's a wired remote that doubles as a wireless remote. Usual Hong Kong outlets on Ebay for next to nothing delivered.
