The specific N3 Female to E3 Male converter cable enables the use of quite expensive Canon devices like the TC-80N3 Remote release Timer Controller intended for the higher end Canon EOS cameras, with the entry level Digital Rebels or nnnD series or even a G series.
So in case you are the happy owner of both a higher end camera like a 5D Mk (whatever) and a second entry level backup or travel camera like a 550D or G12 there is no need to buy more than one Timer Controller. Unless you want to shoot time lapses with both simultaneously of course, quite unprobable but...
On the other hand, the use of a female 2,5mm socket (Canon's E3) is very common to many other manufacturers, giving greater possibilities to this Converter Cable.
|The female N3 compatible socket accepts the N3 male plug found on Canon remote release cables like the RS-80N3 or TC-80N3. However, it retains the plug only by friction since it does not have the necessary lip for the original Canon plug to lock on.|
Using with a Camera
|All Canon EOS Digital Rebel, nnnD or Kiss models have such a remote release female connector on the side panel.|
|The converter cable is 18 cm (7.09") long including the terminals, putting the conversion plug flexibly away from the camera and probably avoid any stress on the camera socket, as would be the case if the plugs were stuck one on top of the other.|
