With all the rain recently, I've realized that I might need to get a new accessory for my Canon 20D: a remote shutter release! If it's going to be dark and rainy for the next couple of months (before the snow sets in), I might as well try to take advantage of it and try to get some rainy night shots. For those who recall; yes, I had a remote switch release for my Canon Digital Rebel, but wouldn't you know it, it isn't compatible with my 20D. That's not the worst thing, however. It seems that the 20D's remote switch offers more options than the Digital Rebel's. More to come in the next few weeks.
Mike, don't you already have the 20D remote switch?Mike Yuhas says
: Yes, indeed I do. In fact, it's what made possible my photos in the Volume 54
and Volume 56
voting competitions. The 20D's shutter speed maxes out at 30 seconds -- which is fine in some applications, but not when you're in a dark alley or want a tiny aperture to increase the depth of field.
