Canon Wireless Controller LC-2 receiver mounted on a Canon EOS A2 and transmitter shown

The Canon Wireless Controller LC-2 is a remote control device using infrared rays to control the camera from a distance. The wireless controller LC-2 consists of the transmitter and the receiver and can be used in two modes; first the standard mode, which operates when the transmitter switch is pressed; and second the auto sensing mode, which activates when an object blocks the light path between the transmitter and the receiver . Since the wireless controller has two channels, you can also control two cameras alternately by alternating channels. The receiver can be rotated a full 360° on it's swivel foot to accommodate trigger angle.
