Canon Rebel/300D remote RC-1 vs. RC-5 - Photography

Is it worth the extra few dollars to get the RC-1 for the Rebel/300D? Does the added functionality work? Most important to me would be the instant shutter release vs. the 2 second delay that is described for the RC-5.

    I've got both of them, and I prefer the RC-1, which allows me to
    choose between a 2 second delay and instant release. By the way, I
    think that you've got the two model numbers confused.

    Remember, though, these are infra-red and therefore line-of-sight.
    The sensor is on the front of the grip just below the shutter release so you
    basically have to be in front of the camera for it to work.
    Maybe a problem with wildlife stuff?
    I made a manual release with a cord that I could make an extension for. Check
