Pros: - inexpensive - solid build - durable cable - useful "hold" button for long exposures
Other Thoughts: Was pleasantly surprised by the quality packaging and item build quality. At this price, expected the remote to be wrapped in tissue, and then crammed into a small white box. Have tested the Vello RS-C1II extensively with my Pentax K-50, and it works perfectly. Cord is definitely a little short, but you know that going in, so definitely not a con. The cord is thick and durable feeling, like it's going to last. Highly recommended!

Pros: Cable is perfectly fine. Data can be transferred along it without trouble. Works.
Cons: The camera has to be turned on to transfer photos. Not really the cable manufacturers fault.
Other Thoughts: I was trying to use this cable for an olympus C3000 zoom which is from the windows 98 days. If your planning to do the same thing, save yourself a lot of trouble and just buy a usb smart media card reader. Windows 8/7/vista can not handle the drivers for the C3000 Zoom. Compatibility mode will not work. You need something older like windows 98 running. Note: a virtual machine will not work as the virtual usb ports are still running through your main os drivers. You need to install windows 98 as a dual boot os with whatever os your actually using. Additional note: you cant install windows 98 with a dvd drive, you need a cd drive.
tldr: If your camera is old, just get a card reader instead.

This reviewer reports that his/her technical understanding of this type of product is Somewhat High and has owned this product 1 month to 1 year.
Pros: It works at short range and near the front of the camera
Cons: • No feedback as to whether the button is pressed (i.e. LED indicator light) • Battery compartment likes to spontaneously open • Range is limited (~ 3-5 feet), but cannot compare to OEM Nikon remote, so I don't know if it's typical
Other Thoughts: "It works, kind of" is the best thing I can say about this product. See my list of pros and cons.
Perhaps a cable release would be better, but you are then limited to the length of the cable. But, as I noted about the range, there may not be any difference and you can be behind the camera with a cable version.
