It works with a vast array of different cameras--just swap out the camera release cable for the correct camera. The transmitter works at distances up to 250' (80 m) on any one of 99 channels over a reliable 2.4GHz frequency.

You can also choose anywhere from 1 to 99 continuous shots or you can set the ShutterBoss to take an unlimited number of photos.

    I take a lot of pictures of the weather. I love to go out at night when a thunderstorm is approaching and photo lightning. The wireless shutterboss gives me mobility while shooting. I also use the wireless shutterboss so that I can be in some of my own pictures. On vacation it was awesome. We took family photos without having to ask someone to take the shot and take a chance on them dropping the camera or messing the photo up. It is also great for time lapse photography. I really haven't found anything that isn't so great about it. It works for what I need to do with it.

    Good, but no guide or tutorials :(

    I find the remote very usefull, its remote function is very good.
    The guide is not that good, and there are no tutorials to show the full capabilities of the device.

            A Must For Night Images & Long Exposures

              Comments about Vello Wireless ShutterBoss Timer Remote (Nikon DC-2 Connection):

              Plenty of bang for your buck! Lots of features and is user friendly. The Vello Wireless Shutterboss is a must if you are doing night and star images that require looong exposures. The wireless feature is great and I've been able to "trigger" the shutter release while being 20-40 feet away from the camera on night images allowing me to get close to the subject matter and "paint" with light.

              The remote transmitter is fairly sturdy too. I dropped the remote transmitter on the ground while rushing to capture a low light sunset.... and it still works.
              I use this with my Nikon D-700. Works so well I bought one for my son to use with his D-7000.

              Highly recommend this item if you are into night or low light photography. B&H is always super fast in the time that it takes to process and ship my orders.

              Perfect wireless remote for tripod shots. Easy to use and set up for time lapse. Would prefer that the remote had an off button, but I store it in an eyeglass case to prevent accidental power on when not in use. Can't beat the price for the functions.

                  Comments about Vello Wireless ShutterBoss Timer Remote (Nikon DC-2 Connection):

                  So far only to verify that everything works as explained and it does. Hopefully over the year I will use it a lot more to be able to comment on how well it works.

                  I was very pleased to see that it can work with almost every camera available. All you need to purchase is the correct cord. We happen to currently have a couple of Nikons which just happen to use the same cord. I had been using the simpler Nikon remote, but it is limited to infra-red line of sight and does not have any timing features such as time lapse etc. I have been considering buying another camera with more features until I found I could do most of that with this remote.

                  The directions are real simple, but they do seem to be adequate. I did request a copy of them from the company prior to purchase and they responded by sending me an e-mail version to help make my decision. So I am comfortable with the idea I should be able to get support if I ever need it.

                    Needed a timer remote that would work with two varieties of Nikon DSLR connectors as well as Olympus and Panasonic Micro-Four Thirds cameras. This one does the trick, and the cables are reasonably priced. (Didn't work the first time for a Panasonic G5; turned out you have to plug the cord in FIRMLY.) Very flexible on timing, not too hard to get the hang of how to set it. Not enough usage yet to tell how durable it will be or how long the batteries will last.

                    Comments about Vello Wireless ShutterBoss Timer Remote (Nikon DC-2 Connection):

                    I just started using this product and I am very excited by the possibilities. However I am very nervous about its durability. I am careful with my stuff but don't baby it. When I pulled it out of the box I felt it is not going to last. It seems extremely lightweight and the buttons don't have a durable feel. I am also nervous about the warnings about moisture. One solution though is to keep it in a zip lock. The receiver doesn't have to be in the hot shoe so you can wrap that as well. The last knock is the sensitivity of the buttons on the remote as it can easily be turned on in your camera bag. It should come with a leather case to keep it from triggering or turning on wasting the battery. The good news is it does function as intended with no more worries about line of sight triggering like with my old remote. The price was fair but maybe a little high for the build quality. This is perceived durability remember as I have only used it a few times.

                        I will be using the shutterboss for astrophotography.

                        Due to the weather, I have not yet used it in vivo but I have checked its functions and they cover what I need and much much more. There are no hidden limitations / links betweem the different settings.

                        So, as far as I say, it's just great.

                        It was a bit hard to figure out as the instructions were very small and translated into English from another language.
                        However once I figured out what they meant it worked fine fore me.
                        My only wish is that it would give longer times between pictures and more photos per set.

                        I use it for long exposures, haven't tried the intervalometer feature yet. Much cheaper than the Nikon equivalent.

                            I'm using this to shoot star trails. It works great! My only wish would be to increase the number of total shots taken beyond the limit of 99 set in the unit. It seems that being a modern electronic device this would be easy to do.

                            This is a great wireless Remote trigger that has a comprehensive software that gives you endless controls over your shutter release. This allows my creative freedom to jump to many new ideas for projects thanks to the options and possibilities that this remote gives me. Also, the fact that you could mount the receiver else where incase you need the hot shoe for flash and if you get a new camera, then all you have to do is buy the adapter cable that works with the new camera and your all set to go. The only thing that worries me is that it is made cheaply and the plastic on the remote does not feel solid. Overall, though the benefits outweigh the cons.

                              The first remote I received did not work wirelessly, so I returned it. It's replacement works great, so far.

                              The only pain with this product was that the original batteries were dead, so I had to add to the purchase $ by buying a whole new set. (Hence 4 stars and not 5). That said, it does all it says it will do and does it very well. Excellent range: with the camera on a tripod, I crossed the room I turned my back and fired the transmitter in my pocket. No problem, it worked! Lightweight and compact. Build could be a little sturdier. I also know that if I change cameras or add a different one to my bag, this product will work with just buying another cable to match the different camera. That is smart because it means the consumer will not be shelling out for a new product as he/she changes gear.
