CameraTown.comCameratown reviews Zap-Shot RF wireless remote : Our good friend Ron Risman from CameraTown has published his review of the ZAP-SHOT RF wireless wemote for Canon EOS Digital Rebel, XT, 300D and 350D digital cameras. The ZAP-SHOT is an accessory for owners of the Canon EOS 300D, 350D, Rebel, or Rebel XT. The ZAP-SHOT wireless remote control uses radio frequency to trigger the shutter release of the camera. The ZAP SHOT wireless remote gives you full freedom and, compared to an infrared (IR) remote control, it allows you to operate the shutter from either direction, even through walls. By using RF, the photographer is able to trigger the camera from up to 75 feet (or more) away and without a line-of-sight limitation.

According to Ron Risman: "The two-button key fob allows you to control the shutter release, as long as you are no more than about 75 feet from the camera and receiver. Button 1 is useful if you want to pre-focus the camera, then rolling your thumb onto button 2 will take the picture whenever you're ready. While the Zap-Shot is the nicest remote solution for the Rebel and Rebel XT, it, like all products, isn't perfect. You'll have to connect the small receiver to the camera and let it dangle. While this didn't pose a problem during testing, I imagine a breeze could introduce some camera vibration…"

Zap-Shot Wireless Radio Remote - Accessory
The remote control should have an indicator light to let you know when a picture was taken. It was difficult, if sometimes impossible, to know for sure unless the flash was set to fire. The receiver unit should be reduced in size and include a way to temporarily mount it to the camera. Some of the advantages of this Canon EOS D-SLR accessory are: Great Range (75+ Feet), user replaceable batteries with no tools, no Line of sight required and multiple Zap-Shots can be used to trigger the same digital camera, or can be set on different addresses to trigger individual cameras.

Cameratown - Conclusion
Sometimes an optional accessory can actually enhance the way you use a product, and the Zap-Shot is one such accessory. The Zap-Shot ups the ante by putting creativity and control in the hands of the photographer. If macro, low-light, portrait, or wildlife photography interest you, then the Zap-Shot should be on your must have list and in your camera bag.
