  • 16 Possible Channels

Vello's FreeWave Plus Wireless Remote Shutter Release - 2.4GHz is a complete lightweight remote control outfit 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.

This remote control will work with virtually any major brand of camera--just switch the dedicated release cable. 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.

    I got this as part of the Vello accessory bundle for the Nikon D7000. I primarily got the bundle for the battery grip but figured this would be a nice bonus. It is.

    This wireless remote works very reliably and quickly. The model I received has an internal antenna in the remote transmitter unit, so concerns other reviewers have expressed about the flimsy telescopic antenna are a non-issue. The range might be slightly compromised, a typical outcome with an internal antenna. I haven't tested the bounds of the range yet, but I have used this at 40-50 feet without any issues.

    Setup is extremely simple as is usage. The manual is sufficient and the options are all I can forsee needing. This is a great adjunct, allowing long exposures without risk of camera shake, enabling the photographer to get in the picture easily, and allows remote control for situations such as shooting birds or other critters that visit feeders or for shooting insects that alight upon flowers. Some potential good macro uses as well.

    Size is great. The model I received uses AAA batteries in both the transmitter and receiver (typical cheap imported no-name batteries were included, which I consider a bonus) and I like that these batteries can be found almost anywhere near civilization rather than harder-to-find button batteries.

    The included cables seem of pretty decent quality, and are coiled, which is a big plus.

    I'm very pleased with this purchase and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

    i also have nikon's ML-3 infrared remote, it is reliable and seems it will last a long time. the only downside is not with the remote itself, but the nature of infrared restricts the range and positioning. so i ordered the freewave rf remote.

    my only concern is that it seems not to work too well when you change in between the modes (single, continuous, bulb, timer). sometimes it requires powering off the receiver for changes to take effect.

    also be careful and only plug in the receiver to the camera while BOTH are powered off.

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

        I was looking for a relatively inexpensive wireless remote that would be compatible with all three of my Nikon DSLR bodies. The Vello Free Wave remote was operational in minutes. For the price it was perfect. Further testing in the field (wildlife)is forthcoming. The Free Wave is compact, no vulnerable antennas and runs on AAA batteries. So far there is no downside.

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

              I bought this for remote triggering for wildlife photography. I have borrowed Pocket Wizards in the past for this, but didn't relish the large expense to aquire my own set of Pocket Wizards, especially since I don't make use of their flash triggering.

              The Free Wave Plus showed up so I ran it through tests to learn it's capabilities before going in the field. I set my camera up, walked away from it and triggered it every ten paces. My pace is roughly 3 feet long and I got to 150 paces before it stopped triggering. This is beyond the advertised 100m range. This test was along clear range of sight, though a truck blocked the view at 70 yards and it still triggered.

              I also placed the camera inside a shed with an open door 30 yards from a house. No problem triggering the unit from inside the house with the door closed. Then I walked around to the other side of the house with the house between me and the camera and successfully triggered from 50 yards. I walked across the street and again with the house blocking the view triggered from 70 yards.

              The only cons I see with this are the switch button appears flimsy and when in bulb mode to trigger multi-shot bursts the camera will keep firing until you hit the switch a second time (as opposed to just holding the switch down until the burst is done like with a pocket wizard). I see potential for not ending a burst when desired, filling your card, etc. The remote led will flash when you push the button, but this just tells you you pushed the button, not whether the receiver got the signal. To be sure your burst has stopped you will need to have visual confirmation of the light on the receiver end - binos anyone?

              Altogether this seems a great device for the price. Way less expensive than Nikon or Pocket Wizard alternatives.

                        Allows remote triggering of my camera without direct line of sight. The included cables allow it to be used on either my D600 and D800 without having to purchase additional accessories. Like being able to use it as a wired release without having to worry about batteries.

                        A little flimsier that I would prefer, but I can't complain given the great price.

                                    This is a handy release. It works just as described. The one flaw it that the trigger has no off switch so the battery can be drained if the button is depressed in your camera bag. I use a trick I found in another review or blog and store the trigger in an empty toilet paper roll. It's not elegant but it works.

                                      The freeware plus wireless remote shutter release 2.4 GHz (for Nikon) I'm mainly using it with my Nikon D7000 DLSR, and used it with my other nikon cameras (D200&D300) I use it to help stop any movement while shooting the camera while mounted in the tripod. It does a better job than the wire remote shutter.

                                      I use this to shoot landscapes, long exposures. Price is good but switch too sensitive. Shipping was fast
