Remote Control

As outlined in the “Bulb Exposure” description earlier, your Canon EOS Rebel XSi can be triggered using a plug-in remote control with an electronic or infrared connection. For example, the Remote Switch RS-80N3 allows triggering a camera attached to the end of its cable. More versatile is the Canon TC-80N3, a remote switch with a 2.6-foot cord (you can add a 33-foot extension cable) and includes a more flexible self-timer that can be set to trip the camera after a delay of anywhere from 1 second to 99 hours, 59 minutes, and 59 seconds (in other words, one second less than 100 hours). It has an LCD display that makes it easy to make and view settings.
