Canon TC-80N3 Review
The Canon TC-80N3 is considered as one of the most advanced remote timer controller for EOS cameras. It can be used to remotely prevent camera shakes and also to time exposures accurately, anywhere from 1 second to 99 hours.
Any photographer who wants no camera shakes in their angles and shots can opt for the Canon TC-80N3 remote controller. The 80cm cable and interval timer are added features in this device. The interval timer is good for time-lapse photography. The counter can be used to set the number of images to be taken at a given point of time and a maximum of 99 images can be taken using this specific feature. The interval timer, self-timer and exposure counter can be combined in unique ways to improve usage, efficiency and creativity. The product has five different modes that can either be used separately or in combination with each other. This product is therefore very versatile. A dial is present, making it easy to enter numeric settings using a thumb.
An illuminated LED panel adds to the feature appeal in this product. It's a blue-green electroluminescent panel and lights up only when the button is tapped. It goes dark after a while. For the EOS-3's remote control socket cap, there is a section at the back of the controller. The Canon TC-80N3 is compatible with a wide range of Canon cameras. Two examples include: 5D Mark II and D2000 camera series. The release button on the TC-80N3 can be pressed and pushed forward to lock time exposure settings. The button function is like that of a standard camera. To wake the meter one has to half-press and to shoot, full-press.
The exposure time is very long and there is therefore no need to hold a button throughout a shoot session. The exposure time is 1 second to 100 hours. The interval timer helps take pictures every one second, all the way to 100 hours. This is a very useful feature. If only a certain number of pictures are required, the exposure counter can be used to set the desired number. The N3 sockets and N3 plugs are not too strong. However, they can be quickly attached and removed. They won't unlock unless the silver outer case is gripped and pulled. The product has a long battery life. The Canon TC-80N3 uses a CR2032 lithium cell. It is also a very lightweight remote controller unit. Along with the cord, it weighs a total of 3 ounces (85 g). The advanced functions are easy to understand and the features work well in coordination with each other -- but only if the photographer sets them that way.
