Whether you are shooting in the studio or outdoors, the Vello RS-P1II Wired Remote Switch provides photographers using select Panasonic and Leica cameras 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-P1II 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.

            Comments about Vello RS-P1II Wired Remote Switch for Select Panasonic and Leica Cameras:

            I was looking a remote switch for my Panasonic FZ1000. Obviously there is the Panasonic branded version, but the price is quite high for what it actually does. This Vello version provides the exact same functionality at a fraction of the cost. It's well made and the cable length is just right for tripod use. A great value and a must have for anyone doing long-exposure photography or anything where you need to eliminate any possible camera shake.

                This remote switch works well with the Panasonic DMC-FZ200, and the price is great! I may save you some time by telling you that there is no plug on the DMC-FZ200 dedicated to a "Remote Switch", the microphone plug doubles as the Remote plug. Also, you cannot use a remote switch to start/stop motion picture recording on the DMC-FZ200 or while using the remote stereo microphone.

                        I have been using the remote when photographing nesting owls and must not have any shaking at all. The Vello does just what it's supposed to do - take a photo w/no movement. I have great pix as a consequence. Would appreciate haveing a longer cord but I knew the length when I bought the product.

                        I use this remote control mostly to start and stop video recording without touching the camera, especially if it is in a cage or on some other rig. Another use is for my long- exposure stills.

                        The RS-PIII performs exactly as I 'd expected: reliable, easily learned as to locking and unlocking its button, lightweight, compact and requires no internal battery.

                        So far, I have not encountered any problems with the unit.

                            I use this with a variety of Panasonic Lumix Micro 4/3s cameras. It works flawlessly with all of them. I don't need a wirless shutter release so this fits my needs.

                              This is a very inexpensive remote release, but appears to be of adequate construction and works as advertised with my Lumix GX7. I didn't buy the Vello unit over the Panasonic one (DMW-RSL1) based on the much lower price, but rather for the shorter 3' cord versus 5'. I will probably add the Panasonic one later, but I prefer a shorter cord for most uses.

                                  It plugs right in to the camera and works without any additional in camera settings. It functions just as the shutter button on the camera. If you press it half way down it focuses. If you press it the rest of the way it takes a picture. One nice feature is that it has a lock down for the shutter button. This is handy if your camera has a bulb feature. You just lock the shutter button down and walk a way until you are ready to end the exposure. You can also use the lock down for continuous shooting if the camera is in continuous shoot mode.

                                  Great little remote that doesn't require batteries. Best used when you can be next to the camera.

                                    It does just what i need it to do...trip the shutter when I have the camera on a tripod. Not elegant or super-durable construction but it's great for the price

                                      I will Velcro it to the handle on my tripod. Dont have to reach around the camera to start and stop recording, also great for taking a picture without touching the camera. The best add on you can find for the cost.

                                        Bought this remote for video. Unfortunately this is more photo oriented, so there is no way to mount it to a pan handle short of tape or elastic bands etc. Would love a better way to mount it. The button needs to be pressed in a fair way before recording will start, which i'm sure is to avoid unwanted shots, however, it does make it a little difficult sometimes to "gently" start recording. Also quite often when pressing the button, i have moved the lock forward, making it a bit longer process to stop recording. These are however very minor issues, & all in all, this remote does a great job at a fraction of the cost of the Panasonic remote.
