    If build quality and reliability are not too important, then get a cheap one from China. If they are, then get a Canon product or something like a set of Pocket Wizards (with appropriate cable).

    I have a cheap wired remote for my newer Cameras. It cost me $11 on E-Bay and came from China...I don't use it a lot but it works just fine. I've got a Canon brand wired remote for my old EOS 650 and it works fine as well.

    I don't have a wireless camera remote but I do have some cheap wireless flash triggers that work well enough.

    I've got the Cleon C6 from Phottix, and would recommend them.
