LC-5 Wireless Controller – trigger your camera from up to 100m away

If you want to trigger your camera, but can’t or don't actually wish to be next to it, then the Canon LC-5 Wireless Controller is the perfect answer for shooting remotely.

Who is it for?

Used for remote photography mainly by wildlife and sports photographers, the LC-5 allows you to trigger the camera from up to 100m away using an infrared beam.

Key features

  • Infrared
  • Up to 100m range
  • Four modes

Being infrared the LC-5 unit requires a line-of-sight communication between the handheld transmitter and the remote receiver mounted on the camera - to make this easier the receiver unit is fitted with a rotating base so that you can point it back towards your position.

For sports photographers, the LC-5 can put you in places you couldn’t otherwise get to – behind the goal at Wembley Stadium or above the boxing ring in Madison Square Garden.

For wildlife photographers, it’s less about where you can’t go, and more about where you’d rather not be – at the feet of an elephant at a watering hole, or at a favourite feeding spot for a lion. It enables intimate photography of difficult subjects from an unmanned, but not unattended camera.

As long as you can see the camera and are no more than 100m away, you can trigger the camera and capture images you’d otherwise be unable to achieve.

The unit offers four modes:

  1. Single Shot – this mode captures an image when the shutter release is pressed.
  2. Continuous mode – this mode signals the receiver to keep firing the camera continuously until the transmitter button is released or the camera runs out of buffer memory or memory card capacity.
  3. Test mode – this mode lights a red LED on the receiver to confirm the unit is working correctly.
  4. Delay mode – this mode captures an image approx 3.5secs after the shutter button is pressed.

  • Infrared transmission

    Transmitting infrared means the unit does not produce any visual light. This helps to stop it disturbing shy animals you may be trying to capture when they’re exhibiting natural behaviour.

  • Rotating mount

    Since infrared transmission requires line-of-sight to work effectively, the receiver unit that you mount on the camera has a rotating foot. This means it can be angled to face the transmitter from wherever you may be hiding out.
