BR-E1 Bluetooth Remote and tabletop tripod


I had been thinking of getting a BR-E1 Bluetooth Remote control for my EOS R6 mkII, since the new camera doesn't have an infra-red receiver to work with my IR remote.

Came across this:

which is a tabletop tripod with the BR-E1 remote 'embedded' in one leg, removable so you can use it without the tripod.

The tripod folds and can be used as a handgrip. It's limited, it doesn't have a proper ball head, just a tilt and swivel head that has click-stop positions. But I've got my pocketable remote which is more convenient to use sometimes than my cellphone. And I can always use another tabletop tripod.

R6mkII, various lenses, speedlites. Also legacy Canons going back to T90 and even A1.


I'd probably go with a full or table top tripod and canon connect.  The BR-E1 might not offer the flexibility you could get with another set up.  Up to you of course.
