The Canon RC-6 Wireless Remote is powered by 2 CR2032 Lithium button batteries rated for about 6,000 transmissions. The Canon RC-6 Wireless Remote is a very useful device - and having no cord is great. You can even put it on your key ring.
The RC-6 can initiate the video function on Canon DSLR cameras, such as the 70D, 5D series and Rebel series, however it is advisable to check your camera's instruction manual to be certain that remote video recording with the RC-6 is supported by your camera.
