Trigger your camera's shutter wirelessly with the FreeWave Plus Wireless Remote Shutter Release from Vello, a lightweight remote control system that will help you avoid unwanted camera movement. This 2.4GHz model is compatible with Sony Alpha cameras and will work both wired and wirelessly up to 320', depending on your own needs and setup. This makes it useful for photographing wildlife or for macro and long exposures where it is necessary to eliminate any chance of camera shake.

The FreeWave system also has access to 16 channels for triggering multiple receivers and has an internal antenna that will be protected from any accidental damage. Multiple features are available for shooting, such as a four-second delay as well as multi-exposure and long exposure modes.

Additionally, it has LED indicators to confirm pre-focus and exposure while in wireless mode and the receiver and transmitter each run on two AAA batteries.

        Comments about Vello FreeWave Plus Wireless Remote Shutter Release - 2.4GHz (for Sony Alpha):

        As a amateur photographer I've tried the shutter release with a cord and didn't care for it. Having used the Vello for awhile, I wouldn't trade it for anything. The freedom it provides during long exposure photos is great. While the camera is doing its thing I can setup for another picture without the restrictions of a cord.

          This remonte shutter release come with Davis & Sanford Voyager TG 4-Section Aluminum Tripod with Trigger Grip Ball Head /ordered together/. They are great addition to my Sony A57. Remonte allow to take the picture /using tripod/ of me alone or with group of my friends or family without asking strangers. I love Vello Free Wave Plus Wireless Remote Shutter Release and recommend it to others. B&H service as always top quality.

            This is handy for long exposures when a steady camera is essential, or for self portraits, or other times when I remote is helpful, but you don't want it in the line of sight, as is required from the infrared kind.

            It's small enough to fit easily in most any bag without much sacrifice, so you can always have it around.

            Overall very happy with this shutter release. Much better quality than the one I had before. Only complaint is that the remote doesn't have an on/off switch, and therefore can be depressed quite easily while in my bag resulting in a run-down battery. Otherwise would've given it 5 stars.

              With tripod in place and at a distance ,for wildlife shots.
              Inside for shots of folks on a stage or at a podium,with set focus and distance,to trigger from tripod on the stage.
              Outside to trigger concealed slave stobe,and keep camera shake to the
              minimum.
              Good construction, and priced right.

              Comments about Vello FreeWave Plus Wireless Remote Shutter Release - 2.4GHz (for Sony Alpha):

              I just used it in my vacation and it is very helpful. That means you don't have to outrun the camera timer when you want to inclued yourself in the picture. I used it in my Sony A-57 and it worked all the time.It's very easy to program and it even looks cool in the camera.
              The only thing is that the receiver sits low and it does not pivot from the base, so that the onboard flash will not fully open.

                I am not sure why it took so long for me to order this product. It is easy to set up, use and understand. Being able to stand anywhere when shooting makes it so easy to photograph children and pets. The price is one of the more attractive things. Goodbye to those annoying cables. This is a must have for photogs of any level of experience.

                I bought this for my SONY A57, I had purchased a cheaper one from [*] it was just that cheap and junk, whenever I plugged it in my menus would stop working and I could not use the camera. This works and works well. I am very happy with the product would but again. B&H pleasure to do business with.

                  Super easy to operate. Excellent results so far. Used it for a series of long exposure nighttime shots over a 2 hour period. Tested from a number of places with obstacles between the remote and the transmitter/receiver - no issues firing. And, it comes with a cable so you can use it wired or wireless. Really happy with this purchase!

                    So far, this one has worked flawlessly, but I have only had it for a short while.

                      This remote is better than I expected. It gives channels so you can use additional receivers or transmitters with the equipment for whatever purpose you see fit. The only complaint I had was that it "clicked in" the first time I put it on which it doesn't have a release for. You have to carefully give it a little effort to get it off, but after that it slides on and off very easily while still holding in place well while it's on. I got it for my Sony Alpha A65 because the remote Sony makes for it works with infrared and would require you to be infront of the camera pointing the remote at the sensor and this is the perfect alternative.

                      With this remote you can get those hard to get fireworks shots. Not having to touch the tripod keeps those annoying blurs away in bulb mode. You can also get those great family shots with the remote (I've been up to 30' away) that you get to be in.

                      Great wireless shutter release
                      Much better than wire

                        I use this for just about everything but mainly for bracketed shooting. This device works great! Very simple to set up. The instructions were simple and very easy to follow. I highly recommend the Vello remote shutter release.

                          This tool is awesome. If you are traveling alone and want to take beautiful self shots or if you're traveling with others, to take group shots, you can do so with this tool. I wondered why I didn't get this sooner. I bought this specially for my trip and wanted to use it to take shots of my hb and I without worrying about imposing on strangers to do so or using the timer function and making sure I reach my spot in time. Needless to say, you can use it for long exposure shots as well.

                          What I especially like is the ability to have the lens focus with a half-press of the button so basically you just need to compose the shot. Definitely seeing myself using this whenever.

                              The wireless remote is the one I should have order earlier. I can be inside a building looking out and have use the remote to operate the shutter release. You do not have be in a line of sight. In addition, I can use it as a wired remote. The options for timed, etc are very handy.
