    What's not to like!

    I've just started using it, so here goes...How can you not like this thing? A long cord, a button lock, simplicity, AND inexpensive.

    Cord too short.

    Once you manage to overcome the too tight connection to the camera the device works well. Another 9 to 12 inches of cord would be welcome. It should be at least as long as the Nikon unit.

      Does exactly what it says for a fraction of the cost of the Nikon version. Great for long-exposure photography. No issues during use with my Nikon D600. Build quality is surprisingly good. It looks and feels more expensive than it really is.

          Comments about Vello RS-N2 II Wired Remote Switch for Nikon DSLRs with DC-2 Connection:

          it's a great remote, it works as it should and it was ready to be used the second I hooked it up on my Nikon.

          Only down side, when you put down the button and slide up, it's supposed to be for long exposures, this feature didn't work for me, I am not sure if it was my camera or the remote it self.

          Overall, it's a nice remote.

            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.

                                    I understand if you're buying a lens, an otherwise generally expensive accessory, to shoot for buying the expensive brand i.e. Nikon or Canon. That does NOT apply to this. The Vello did exactly what it was supposed to do: take a picture when you press the button, that's it. I do not regret buying this over the Nikon version. Happy buying!

                                    A simple, inexpensive yet effective wired remote control for shutter release. The cable is a little short but that's not a real problem for me. A remote is an essential device to combat lens vibration and camera shake. The plug is a very tight fit into my D7100, But tighter is better than loose.

                                      Comments about Vello RS-N2 II Wired Remote Switch for Nikon DSLRs with DC-2 Connection:

                                      Love this shutter release, works without any menu settings in my d5200, just plug it in and press the button. Locks solidly for continues shooting or long exposure. The two stage button is not as "defined" as the on camera shutter but I didn't find that a hindrance.

                                          Nothing fancy, just a shutter switch with a lock. Excellent for Mirror up photography. I use it in bulb mode on my Nikon

                                            You need a remote switch. It may be this one as well.

                                              Nice to have a shutter release that works seamlessly with my Nikon D5100. I love it.

                                              After buying a battery operated timer only to have it torn out when my daughter grabbed my camera, I realized I could go with this inexpensive remote and an app on my phone. Yes, you have to trigger and intriguer it manually when doing exposures longer than 30 seconds, but a fraction of a second at those times is nothing. Appears well made. Easy to grip. Big enough to hold comfortably. And as long as my phone battery hasn't died then I don't have to worry about batteries dying in this since there aren't any.

                                              4 stars because I wish the cord was longer.
