    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.

    Great cord for the money

    By Hayes

    from California

    Comments about Vello RS-C1II Wired Remote Switch for Select Canon, Pentax & Samsung:

    I really love this cord and I have used it for many slowshutter photos and star trails. It works great and does its purpose however it is a cheap product but I highly recommend it to anyone that likes slow shutter and light trail photography.

      It's not a bad remote for a student or an intermediate photographer who just got into long exposure photography. It's the same quality as the canon remote so it's not a bad product.

        Using this with a Fuji XT-1. It actually works better than the Fuji cable release because the plug fits more securely and doesn't fall out.

                On the recommendation of the salesperson I purchased this item for my fujifilm X-E2 even though the product doesn't say it's compatible with Fuji. It's much cheaper than the "officially compatible" shutter remotes, but the gentleman was right - it works just fine.

                      This has been a great replacement for the $ Canon wired remote. I've worn out 2 of the Canon remotes shooting HDR bracket and find the Vello remote to be heavier duty for $

                      This remote switch sutter release cable worked great on a recent vacation where I used a tripod. I used it with a Canon Rebel T3 and a tripod. Nothing to say bad about it, did exactly what it was supposed to.

                                    This wired remote switch is easy to use, and works perfectly with my Canon 70D. I have used it several times since I've purchased it two weeks ago & love it.

                                    I have owned 35 mil cameras for a great many years and have used remote shutter release many times with a long lens. This has no frills and it is made sturdy and large enough so there is no fumbling around. For an inexpensive item it does a great job.

                                      I went to shoot fireworks on July 4th. I was counting on my previous remote switch (another brand) which did not work. So, I had to shoot without a remote switch. I ordered the Vello remote switch the next week and have been very pleased. It is easy to operate.
                                      The B&H staff was very helpful with their knowledge and recommendation.

                                        If you don't have a remote and you use a tripod often (or ever) get a remote like this. It saves so much grief and adds so much sharpness for so little money. Aside from my tripod, I'd consider this guy to be the most useful camera accessory I own. It was also the least expensive by far.

                                        That said, it's not a perfect piece of equipment. It can fire burst shots and hold down for bulb exposures with a locking mechanism, but sometimes that mechanism can slips on unintentionally as I fire the shutter. At the end of the day an extra burst certainly doesn't hurt anything, but it can be a little annoying.

                                        If you think that's a bit nit-picky, I wouldn't blame you. It is. This little guy is great. Get one if you don't already have one.
