Hi everyone,

I am a architectural photographer and I am switching from a Nikon system, where I used the wonderful WRT10 as a wireless shutter release for my D850. I am now using Canon 5DS and looking for a similar option. The issue I have found is most wireless radio triggers for Canon use a receiver that sit in the hotshot of the body, which conflicts with my pocket wizard. Has anyone found a better solution to this?

I like using the wireless trigger rather than the corded release because I don't like the hanging remote off the camera.

Thanks for your help!


I use an RC-1 with my 5D4 and is not listed by Canon as compatible that I could find but it does indeed work and quite cheap and it's also very simple to use. I got that when I was using a Rebel (500D)
