If anyone is intrested in a cheap camera remote and has an Iphone or Ipod touch. Check out an app called "DSLR remote" by "On One Software" There are two one is free the other is $20http://www.ononesoftware.com/product...camera-remote/DSLR Camera Remote for the iPhone and iPod touch allows you to remotely trigger the shutter, or fire a supported camera. This seemingly basic feature is very powerful because it now allows you to trigger the camera in a variety of scenarios that would have been difficult to near impossible before.
With your supported camera connected via USB or wi-fi grip to a computer running the lightweight onOne DSLR Camera Remote Server application, the DSLR Camera Remote application running on your iPhone or iPod touch can remotely trigger the camera. Start, monitor and stop the video record function right from your phone.
You will also need to download something for your computer http://www.ononesoftware.com/downloads Look at the bottom of the page for "Remote Control"
I haven't used mine in a while since it does not support Linux. But when I was using Windows it worked very nice, and I was able to use manual and control everything on my camera.
Plus you can set it up for time-laps.
I should add you camera must be connected to your computer..
