yup <G>

I found a Chinese company (www.aputure.com) which produces some items for photography. I bought their copy of Canon's TC-80N3, and I was really amused when I read the instruction manual. They forgot to replace the original's product name (TC80N3) on the fine print.

Really? I also bought one for my S5 Pro. Will check the instruction manual when I'm back in SG.

My manual for the Apurture Remote Cord Timer is different from yours. The page 10 is "Timed Photography (4/7)". Maybe because mine is for the Nikon camera?
