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 & Leica:

        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.

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

            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.

                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.

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

                  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.

                  Works with the GH3. The cord is very long. It has a "hold" functionality so you won't accidentally start/stop recording.

                      The Remote Switch for the Panasonic FZ200 does the job, allowing jitter free long exposures for astro photos.

                                      Excellent value remote. The build quality better than expected and it has worked flawlessly with my Panasonic G5. Highly recommended.

                                          Small, lightweight, and easy to use. Does exactly what it is supposed to do. Takes up very little space in my camera bag.

                                            Works well w/Panasonic FX200. Just the right amount of pressure to activate the shutter. Slight pressure auto focuses the camera. Works as well as I had hoped it would. Would tell others to get one.

                                                I called B&H and told them my need and they recommended this wired remote! It works perfectly. It arrived the next day.
