In reading the reviews on Amazon.com it appears the unit has a problem if you want to do a 5 or more shot bracket, using CH, for HDR. It seems to lock up.

Also another review notes it is very hard to fit your hand on the thread knob to attach or remove the device from the camera body. Suggests once attached to leave it there, but then complains how the antennae gets damaged when putting camera in and out of bag with trigger attached.

I use a Photix remote myself and don't have a problem with shooting high speed.
