    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-N2 II Wired Remote Switch for Nikon DSLRs with DC-2 Connection:

        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.

                  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.

                      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.

                          I ordered this to do long exposures in bulb mode on my Nikon D3200. It works great and I have no complaints. As a bonus, I don't have to use a two-second timer to avoid camera shake anymore. No worries about battery life and a decent cord size.

                              On a tripod when extended shutter time is required. It is a well made device as are other Vello products that I now use. No problem attaching it to my Nikon Coolpix P7700 camera. The controls work as they should. No complaints operating the wired remote switch. In fact I find it easier to use then the non wired type. The non wired switch requires you to be in specified positions in order to have to switch to activate the timed shutter release Under certain field conditions this might not be possible in confined area.You would be lucky to get your tripod set up.

                                  It does exactly what it's advertised to do.

                                    This third-party product delivers all the value of the original manufacturer's at 1/3 the price.

                                      You don't need to spend money for name-brand remotes. This one works just fine!

                                      Purchased this wired remote to keep in the bag as a just in case thing. I decided to connect it to make sure it worked. Pulled from the case, plugged into the side of my Nikon d7100 pressed the button and it auto focused and fired without having to set anything up. Gotta love that.....

                                        Bought this switch for my D7100.
                                        Good price and does exactly what it's supposed to do.
                                        Good for releasing the shutter for slow shutter speeds & long exposures, when vibration needs to be kept to a minimum.

                                        Works as advertised. Great little trigger for the price. No failures at all and seems to be good quality construction.
