Timed Shutter - TC-80N3 in firmware
I was discussing the options of timer remote controls last night and it raised a question for camera manufacturers, in particular Canon, because I have a 50D.
Why can't the functions of the TC-80N3 be incorporated into the firmware of the camera?
I can't think of a good reason as to why it can't be done other than the overpriced accessory revenue stream they have going. I have found aftermarket battery grips that incorporate the timer functionality into them, so it puzzles me why it can't make the jump into the camera itself.
