This is a good remote release cord that does what it's supposed to do, and for a price that's a mere fraction of what I'd have had to pay for the genuine Sony remote cord. Plus, the fact that it has a 10-ft cord -- in lieu of the shorter, standard length -- increases the scope of its possible uses. A version with a 3-foot cord is available for five dollars less, but I feel that the 10-foot cord is well worth the slightly higher price. Just a few minor quibbles ...
1. The button feels kind of mushy, with the transition between "half-press" and "full-press" not very firm or well-defined. This makes me wonder how durable it's going to be in the long run. However, it works as it's supposed to (at least for now), and considering that I could buy four of these with the money the genuine Sony remote (with the shorter cord) would have cost me, I find this to be an acceptable compromise.
2. The molded right-angle connector that plugs into the camera faces forward...
I haven't had any problems with the connection to my Sony A350, it fits nice and snug. It actually works better and offers more control than the little wireless remote I have for my old Canon.
This is a great product. It's much cheaper than the sony version. I use it on my Sony a300 and it works great. Also works on my Minolta Maxxum 5 camera. The extra length is great too.
