    Anyone here rockin the wireless shutter remote for the XTi?

    Curious if you have any rants/raves about it...

    Didn't even realize that the XTi had compatibility for a wireless remote! :p

    I don't have one yet, but I want one. :) It's one the the remaining four items that I feel I can "justify":

    wireless remote
    430EX flash
    battery grip and batteries
    another memory card (so I can shoot my friend's wedding in RAW)

    It seemed something interesting when I first found out about it.

    But I bought a wired one for my Rebel 7 years ago.

    My cat ate the cable about a month ago.

    I tried to replace it. I searched around. Finally, the wireless one didn't convinced me. I was about to buy another wired remote.

    My friend fixed my wired remote. I would never get a wireless for my XTi.

    I have a wireless remote for my 400D. Granted it's a pretty cheap and it has to be in front of the camera to work, but it's ok.

    I have the Nikon remote for my D40x, and love it to pieces. Great for self-portraits and long exposures. 60 second exposures at f22 and ISO 100 become clean, sharp, and easy.

    I may be one of the few who would say this, but I think an external flash is invaluable... sometimes maybe more so than a lens. I have the Nikon SB-600 (roughly equiv to the 430EX) and I bought it over a 50mm 1.8. I think it's actually done more for my photos than the lens would have. Problem is, now I have the flash I want the lens (and others) as well.
