Whether you are shooting in the studio or outdoors, the Vello RS-N2II Wired Remote Switch provides photographers using select Nikon cameras with a DC-2 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-N2II 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.

    Good remote switch

    This remote switch was ideal while I was photographing a fireworks display. Having the camera on a tripod and using this switch gave me crystal clear photos.

          Comments about Vello RS-N2II Wired Remote Switch for Select Nikon DC-2 Cameras:

          I really can't complain for the price. It works well. My only complaint is that is slides into the bulb setting way too easy when pushing the button. Not a big deal and easy to learn to avoid but I wish that was just bit tighter.

            Comments about Vello RS-N2II Wired Remote Switch for Select Nikon DC-2 Cameras:

            Plug and play, it's that easy. It's like having the shutter button off the camera. And it even has a hold button for bulb mode. Great for bracketing and long exposure shots.

            I might have reviewed this already...anyway, it's a remote. It's wired, so it's more reliable for those critical shots. Does what it supposed to do.

                        The shipment was on time, the remote was simple to use on my Nikon D7000 and cost me much less than the Nikon version.

                        I have been using the Nikon wireless remote so far and found it was not half as reliable as this wired release.

                        I would strongly recommend this for shooting nature.

                          It's a remote trigger. Plug it in, push the switch, and the camera takes a picture. Not much else to it. Does the job perfectly well for a reasonable price.

                              I needed a remote shutter release for long exposure pictures, and this serves that purpose. It's cheap and it works.

                                  I like to do a lot of HDR Photography. Camera shake from manually pressing the shutter button can be a problem. Radio shutter releases are fairly expensive. This is a low cost alternative, and one I use a lot. This model works well. The only Con I can find is that the locking device sometimes slides into place by accident, but Overall I like this product.

                                    Useful for long exposure, including: moving water, waterfalls, clouds, automobiles, trains etc. The vello wired remote switch is the best priced switch and feels like it will stand the test of time.

                                      Great add on for my equipment. I have been needing a remote and ordered this one from B+H. Very happy with the results and a nice substitute for an off manufacturer.

                                            At around 7 bucks, you can't go wrong with this. I have never used the Nikon equivalent, but I am not sure I would have paid 3 times the amount for the brand name product.

                                              I use this mainly for long expo shots and it works great! (other uses: macro, self portraits.)first of all.. its very unexpensive! it's very light,very compact,has a pretty durable feel. abseleoiutly love it and would defenetively buy a second one.

                                                This is a non mfg wired remote shutter release for many Nikon DSLRs. It is extremely useful to have this type of device for minimizing camera shake when taking long exposures, or when doing macro or telephoto work. It functions essentially the same as the Nikon branded model. The one area that could be improved is that there is minimal stiffness on the sliding lock. It is very easy to inadvertently lock the release down.
