Vello's FreeWave Plus Wireless Remote Shutter Release - 2.4GHz is a complete lightweight remote control system that provides a way to trip your camera's shutter while avoiding any possible unwanted camera movement. The FreeWave Plus works in either wired or wireless mode. This is ideal for photographing wildlife, and for macro and close-up photos or long exposures, where the slightest camera movement can ruin a picture.

With the dual function release, press halfway to focus, then press all the way to trigger the shutter. A four-second delay function makes it easy to produce self-portraits. Working on the 2.4GHz frequency gives you reduced radio interference and an extended range (up to 320' (100 m))--you don't need to have line-of-sight alignment, either, as radio waves will pass through walls, windows and floors. LED indicators confirm pre-focus and exposure when in wireless mode. The FreeWave Plus is capable of multiple exposures with a single press of the trigger, and you can control the length of long exposures remotely, also.

This particular FreeWave unit comes with the necessary cables to make it compatible with all Canon cameras that accept a remote control. It can also be adapted to work with virtually any major brand of camera--just switch the dedicated release cable.

    i do a fair amount of portrait work and you can't beat this wireless for that. also i climb quite a bit and this is a great tool for taking photos without having to try and run and get in position for a shot within 10 seconds, witch can be dangerous on uneven terrain. recently i used it for taking aurora photos at -5 the wireless attached to camera sat outside for hours no problems i highly reccomend this product. only have had it for a couple weeks not sure on durability but looks sturdy enough

    I have a wired trigger system that I've used since I first got my 5d2... but wanted to try wireless for a few reasons... I've had the product for a couple of weeks and while it works fine, compared to a wired trigger, it isn't as reliable. Now since this was my first wireless trigger experience I can't say it's better or worse than other types of wireless triggers. The components are made of light plastic, but seem solid enough- if you're using a remote trigger you're probably not running around with your camara so this isn't a big deal... The shoe mount on the portion that connects to the 3 pin slot via an included wire, seems a little odd since I'd never mount it in the shoe mount wanting to save the shoe mount for a wireless flash trigger, but it hangs quite harmlessly off the side of the camara so no real harm there. I think it's a worthwhile accessory if you're doing any type of photography that requires you to be either infront of the camara yourself, or farther than 6 feet from the camara (i hate cords that arn't taped down due to a clumsy assistant taking down a light stand once via the trigger cord...) But compared to a wired trigger, i couldn't rely on the picture bring taken 100% of the time when I pressed the remote's button... I would say it fired 90% of the time, but not everytime- which can get frustrating... Also the remote is susposed to allow you to half press the shutter button to engage the auto focus and lock focus in... while there is a halfway point, the pressure/feel of the halfwaypoint is so slight and inperceptable it took a little practice to get the feel for it. I've shot self family portraits, macro, and wildlife with it (putting my rig and tripod on a deer trail and retreating to a hunters perch worked great) and it does work at a distance, so overall I'm satisfied, but would like a little more reliability EVERY time I press the shutter button.

          Comments about Vello FreeWave Plus Wireless Remote Shutter Release - 2.4GHz (for Canon):

          Living very close to Walt Disney World and having all the excitement right at my fingertips. I find myself wanting to capture it all in pictures, especially the unordinary. For years I have been trying to take photos of the beautiful fireworks which occur nightly here but never capturing that "wow" factor that you see with your own eyes. While reading a book on Digital Photography the author recommended a remote and a tripod for capturing scenes with a lower shutter speed. I purchased the Vello Freewave wireless remote and let me tell you the results were astounding! I have a Canon Rebel SLR which accepted the remote beautifully, it worked the very first time I connected it with absolutely no difficulty. I have also taken beautiful shots of my to dogs which are very difficult to photograph. I ordered the remote on line and within four days it arrived safely packed and ready to go. Consider me a faithful customer who is very satisfied.

                Uses regular aaa batteries.

                            This remote is sturdy and reliable. It has features that give the photographer greater flexibility than with other, simpler units. Of course, since it is anchored with the hot shoe, that eliminates the possibility of using the pop-up flash. I purchased this for my daughter, but will probably get one for myself soon.

                            Taking pictures of birds at a bird feeder is fun from a distance but setting up this device on my camera and being inside the house, drinking tea, and taking pictures. It awesome. Get it!

                                I use the FreeWave when the camera is mounted on a tripod; when I am either not near the camera, or if I want to eliminate vibration from pressing the shutter button. It works for that. However, I have not been able to use it for bracketed exposures when the camera (Canon 5D3) is programed to do that. It isn't clear why since the camera will shoot multiple exposures with a single press of the shutter button. I have tried it several times with no success. Other than that the FreeWave works as expected.

                                  Purchased as part of a kit for use on a 70D. This release works great, has half press focus and a hot shoe mount. Remember however if you wish to use with a on shoe external flash (or the built in flash) on most DSLR's you won't be able to mount the receiver. My only real complaint is that the receiver is rather large. A smaller design would be nicer. Other mounting options would also be a plus. The cable that connects from the receiver to the camera shutter release port is also a little unwieldy.

                                      Primary use is for bulb for night sky photographs. Set up was easy peasy and it works as advertised. It will eliminate me moving the camera when I depress the shutter button for long exposures or setting the camera on delay for faster shutter speeds.
