    I did a little searching but found many references for flash triggers which is not what I'm looking for.

    I've got a Canon 50D and plan to upgrade to a 5D II when my skills improve enough to warrant such a necessity. I'm trying to find a remote trigger for the shutter that will be compatible with both and preferably is wireless.

    I've heard mentions of cowboy studios. Are they a good brand? Any brands I should avoid? Should I look at Canon brand triggers or is 3rd party a better option?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Pocket Wizard Plus II units will allow you to trigger flash or a camera remotely. You just need the correct cable to attach the receiving unit to the camera.
