Remote Release from a Receiver Unit

When using an EOS DIGITAL camera released in or after 2012, you can perform remote release (remote control shooting) from an EL-1 set as a receiver unit during radio transmission wireless shooting.

  1. Push the joystick vertically.

  2. Take the picture.

    • Press the joystick up, down, left, or right, or turn Select dial and select REL, then press the joystick vertically.
    • A release signal is sent from the receiver unit to the sender unit, and the picture is taken.


  • Remote release is not possible from a receiver unit in cameras released up to 2011 or EOS REBEL T100/4000D/3000D, EOS REBEL T7/1500D/2000D, EOS REBEL T6/1300D or EOS REBEL T5/1200D.
  • Shooting is not possible when autofocus fails. It is recommended that you set the focus mode switch of the lens to MF, manually focus on the subject, then release.


  • Remote release is performed with "Single shooting" regardless of the camera's drive mode setting.
  • If there are two or more sender units (), the flash signal is sent to the main sender.
  • During remote release from the receiver, RELEASE will be displayed on the sender display panel.
