The Shutterboss Version II Timer Remote Switch for Canon with 3-Pin Connection from Vello is a remote shutter release that provides photographers with enhanced levels of exposure control. Featuring specialized functionality such as continuous shooting, self-timer, long time exposures, and interval shooting, the ShutterBoss Version II is a huge asset to keep in your camera bag. This particular ShutterBoss is compatible with cameras that have a 3-pin connection, for example: Canon EOS 5D, 7D and 1D series DSLRS.

With the ShutterBoss you can set timer delays, exposure times and intervals up to 99 hours, 59 minutes, 59 seconds in one-second increments. You can also select from 1 to 399 continuous shots or set the device to take an unlimited number of photos. Since you can set exposures without touching the camera you will capture clear, blur-free images. This remote has a 4-line backlit LCD status display for easy viewing of timer and exposure settings. The backlight can be locked to remain on when shooting in low light conditions.

The Shutterboss is great for time lapse series of blooming flowers, sunsets or the night sky. It can also function without batteries as a simple manual remote shutter release. Simply establish the camera's settings and push the remote's shutter button halfway to focus and fully to shoot. In bulb mode, slide the shutter release button forward to lock and the shutter will stay open until you release it. 

The Shutterboss Version II has added two features that will offer easier control over the remote's settings. First is a Power Off option which gives you the ability to power down the remote to conserve battery life and also a Reset option allows the Shutterboss' settings to be completely reset to default settings with just the hold of two buttons. A default reset is a time-saver to avoid changing each setting individually. 

Whether it's for simple shutter release, extended self-timer options, continuous shooting, long exposures, or time-lapse shooting, the Shutterboss Version II Remote puts creative camera control in the palm of your hand.

      I bought this interval timer as an alternative to the Canon branded interval timer. It works just as advertised with the ability to program a delay prior to shooting, a shutter interval, interval between shots and number of shots. I used the timer for star trail photography with 4 minute exposures with a second between exposures and 20 overall exposures. It is difficult to program in the dark as the controls are a bit touchy and the timer jumps between modes very easily. Otherwise, the product worked as advertised. It can also function as a remote trigger. For cameras with built in interval timers, this product is still useful, as the built in interval timers only allow for 30 second exposures.

      I use this timer for night photograph to help with long exposures over 30 seconds and up to hours.

      The timer itself works well and does what it says however there a few things about it that make it frustrating to use, specially at night.

      The light only stays on for a few seconds, and as the keys don't light up you end up using a flashlight anyway to program it.

      The programming is simple, but the keys to navigate from menu to menu are sensitive and it's easy to make a mistake.

      I bought it because I read the cable fits very well into the socket on the camera (mine is a Canon 5dmkiii) and this is not the case. It came loose a few times and I feel like I am going to ruin the socket on the camera because I have to press so hard to get it to seat properly.

            This remote switch is excellent. It has all of the settings for time lapse and long exposure photography and it is simple to use! The only drawback is that the cord will slip out of the camera once in awhile.

              Save money by getting this wired remote if you are really shopping for an intervalometer, as I was. It's battery will last longer without the wireless radio, and the unit can be easily attached to a tripod. A wired connection increases reliability. Given all that, I also have a wireless remote. If you want a do-all remote, the wireless may fit the bill better, but I was after an intervalometer, and this one is great.

                                  I bought this for some time lapse projects and it works perfectly. I like it because it has all the features i need and is very simple to operate.

                                    Great multi-function timer to expand camera control.

                                      Excellent remote, easy to use. The backlight is very use when using at night.

                                        Purchased to do some time lapse work for fun with my Canon 7D. Plugged right into the side and was easy as pie to use. Nice light too for night usage. The guy I spoke with at B&H was VERY helpful with the two questions I had before the purchase. Shipping was quick too, even during the Holiday season.

                                            Used the Shutterboss VII on the Canon 5D MK III and it worked flawlessly. It was perfect for my timed long exposures on landscapes and astroimaging.
                                            Took only a little while to become used to its operation.
                                            Definitely have a spot for it in the camera bag.

                                              using mostly for time lapse photography. works like a charm. hard to see at night, but i knew that and most cell phones have a flashlight so not a big deal. also having some issues with longer exposures on the shutter control, but that may be just me being a bonehead.
