Hi I am a snowboarder looking for a reliable long distance shutter release for canon 6d ... I will be using while snowboarding so has to be good in cold and snowy conditions and very reliable ... Definitely willing to spend extra for a quality remote ... Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated thanks
One of the interesting things about the Canon EOS 6D is that it sports built-in Wifi, and you can use that along with a smartphone and the EOS Remote app to control the camera. You're going to have somewhat limited range if you have the camera act as the access point, but you can also have the camera connect to an existing Wifi network. That means that you can use any available Wifi access point to increase the range of the smartphone "remote". The app does more than just work as a remote shutter release -- you can adjust settings like focus, shutter speed, aperture, etc., and you can see the "live view" image.
Assuming you already have a compatible smartphone (requires iOS or Android), EOS Remote is surely the cheapest option since the app is free. Certainly worth a try.
