Trigger your camera's shutter wirelessly with the FreeWave Plus Wireless Remote Shutter Release from Vello, a lightweight remote control system that will help you avoid unwanted camera movement. This 2.4GHz model is compatible with Canon cameras and will work both wired and wirelessly up to 320', depending on your own needs and setup. This makes it useful for photographing wildlife or for macro and long exposures where it is necessary to eliminate any chance of camera shake.

The FreeWave system also has access to 16 channels for triggering multiple receivers and has an internal antenna that will be protected from any accidental damage. Multiple features are available for shooting, such as a four-second delay as well as multi-exposure and long exposure modes. The device also has a dual function release, enabling focus on half press and triggering the shutter release on a full press. Additionally, it has LED indicators to confirm pre-focus and exposure while in wireless mode and the receiver and transmitter each run on two AAA batteries.

    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.

        Loved this remote! Was perfect for my needs. Worked good until one day, in the middle of shooting it just stopped firing... Thought it was the batteries, replaced them and still nothing. It lasted me exactly 11 months. Wish I had realized there was a 1 year warranty, I could have had it replaced! Its too late now and of course, its $15 more than the last time I purchased it... Real bummer! But its worth biting the bullet and buying a new one.

            Comments about Vello FreeWave Plus Wireless Remote Shutter Release for Canon:

            Immediately upon installing this remote shutter to my Canon 70D, the shutter became less distinct, soft and labored and it slowly clicked. I quickly removed the unit and did not use it again. Soon after, while using the camera, i experienced a series of problems, photos would not show in review, after a click, while rotating the wheel to review all images, photos would not show up, and when I clicked a few photos, in succession, the camera would labor and some of the clicked photos would not fire for up to a minute later. Now, I have a $180 charge by Canon, to review/repair it. This is not the first concern I had with Vello. I had a battery grip for my 7D, that caused problems of which I had to pay to purchase the over-priced Canon grip. The lesson: buy original equipment even though it is far more expensive. Is cheaper in the long run.

              It was easy to use.
              All the specifications and instructions mentioned in the manual were verified and were easy to follow and were true.
              However I found it a little fragile. This is why I did not give it 5 stars.

              Good Value But It Freezes Up With Heavy

                Comments about Vello FreeWave Plus Wireless Remote Shutter Release for Canon:

                Its a good value overall but it freezes up under heavy, repeated usage. Basically I use this remote to do hyper focus-stacks where I want anywhere from 20 to 200 images to composite. When I'm working out of doors, I want do this as rapidly as possible to avoid subject motion due to wind. I specifically bought the Canon 100mm f2.8 L macro because its optimal image quality comes at f4, which is a stop faster than other available macro lenses. The wider stop allows faster shooting. But after ripping off approximately 2 dozen shots, the Vello unit just freezes up. If I wait 10-30 seconds, it may start working again.

                Its not an issue of batteries becoming exhausted, because I bought multiple replacement batteries for both the trigger and execution units, and a fresh set of batteries will perform exactly like the set I've taken out. Plus, the "old" batteries will work just fine if you replace them, until you hit the 24-quick shots in a row limit.

                So its a functional unit unless you need heavy duty capabilities.

                        For several years, I have used a wired shutter release, but that has kept me too near my camera for some shots. If I wanted to sneak into a group picture, photograph wildlife or set my tripod low to the ground, I could not always accomplish what I wanted easily This wireless shutter has give me so much more versatility, particularly when used with live view mode. I love it!

                            Needed a remote for Canon D5 Mk III, and this fits the bill. Can use it direct on the camera via the cable, or wirelessly. Good range and fast response. Need to get use to the half push to focus. Worked fine. Came with the right cables.

                            Only downside is plastic construction, so needs careful handling and protection.

                            I was looking for a wireless remote and on that day it was on special. I live chatted with an agent and that is the one they also recommended. So I got a great product on sale! Thanks for the help...pleased with the item so far!

                              A wired shutter-release cable is inconvenient, especially when something like this has been available for many years. Worth every penny. Very satisfied with this product.

                                I not only would recommend it to a friend, I got one for my son. This allows you to compose the picture, step away from the camera and watch for the right moment while watching the entire scene.

                                    I bought this figuring I would like to have I would need a remote shutter at some point. I ended up using it 2 days after receiving it in the mail. I needed to take some group pictures where I needed to be in the picture too. The Vello worked just as advertised! Couldn't ask for more.

                                      I have been using this now for about 2 weeks, doing night photography with long exposures. This product has allowed me to not have to touch my camera and risk camera shake in order to get crisp, clear photos. I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a good remote release.
