Whether you are shooting in the studio or outdoors, the Vello RS-C1II Wired Remote Switch provides photographers using select cameras featuring a 2.5mm connection with a simple way to control exposures and an easy-to-use tool to create more "keepers". The device is larger and more comfortable to use than many other remote devices, with a thick, sturdy cord.

The RS-C1II is compatible with autofocusing, continuous shooting or single image capture, and long exposures. It will autofocus on a half press of the button and trigger the shutter with a full press. Also, users can press the button and slide it forward to lock it for long exposures. Since you can trigger exposures without touching the camera, you will capture sharp, blur-free images. Additionally, the unit does not require batteries as it draws its power from the camera, making it an extremely useful tool to keep in your studio or gear bag.

    Excellent little remote performs just like its Canon counterpart. Lightweight, fast, and inexpensive, this remote gave me the ability to get some great shots of the NYC fireworks (even though my view was subpar!) If you want to get creative with your photography you definitely need one of these.

    Bought it as my camera doesn't allow 3 sec shutter release delay AND exposure bracketing for HDR (which requires a tripod..)

    All the functionality of the OEM product at a fraction of the price. However, the micro-jack doesn't fit in the camera very securely and needs fiddling with to make good contact.

              Not Perfect But Does The Job

              By Jude

              from Kansas

              Comments about Vello RS-C1II Wired Remote Switch for Select Cameras with 2.5mm Sub-Mini Connections:

              I purchased this wired remote to use in place of a wireless remote in the studio. I had to push so hard on the wireless switch that it was causing great discomfort on my thumb hence the wired purchase. The Vello RS-C1II functions smoothly without the discomfort. My only complaint is that it's too easy to inadvertently slide the lock into place ( for long exposures ), which I did a few times without realizing it. For the most part it's good value for the price.

                  oWhen using a long lens on a tripod you want a cable release to avoid shake. New cameras use electric switching for this. A Pentax switch is about triple the cost of the Vello switch and this does the exact same thing.

                      I had heard that this product is compatible with the Fuji X-T1, whose own remote release is a bit on the spendy side. It does indeed work with the X-T1: half-press to focus, full press to release the shutter, full press and slide the button assembly to lock the button for a long exposure. Good product at a decent price.

                            Have used this remote switch with a Canon 60D on several occasions now for landscape and sunset shooting. Works perfectly, solid construction. Cannot beat it for the money. No need to get the much more expensive Canon model.

                                  I use this with my Pentax K-3 for bulb exposure and for some static shots with the 300mm f/4 on the K-3.

                                  So easy to use - no battery needed for the remote, just plug the cord into the socket on the camera body and push the switch to initiate the exposure, i.e. no special camera settings to deal with or having to aim the device in a certain direction as with infrared remotes.

                                  If there be cases where using a cordless remote is desired or required in one's photography that's another matter, but if not then this wired one work perfectly.

                                  The price is so inexpensive that this turned out to be a great purchase from all aspects.

                                          Not much to say, it's a wire with a button - and it works!

                                          A great Cable Release for the price! Helped for my star trails, I no longer have camera shake in the image and beats using a rubberband and a stick!

                                              This release costs about as much as replacing the batteries in my infrared remote. Now I don't need to worry about dead batteries as this release is powered by the camera. Great bargain.
