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, 6D, 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.

      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 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.

        Comments about Vello Shutterboss Version II Timer Remote Switch for Canon with 3-Pin Connection:

        It works fine, easy to program, but it has interesting feature. Basically you need to add one second. If you want 20 second exposure you should program 21 sec.

        Once you learn all the little details (10 minute process), it is good unit to use. Also fact that it uses normal batteries makes it great for any travel.

                  The Canon intervalometer is easier to use but it costs 2.5 times as much. This works, you just have to read the manual. One place where it tops the Canon - it uses easy to find AAA batteries.

                      This thing is really simple. Don't press the buttons too hard as they are only plastic. I do like being able to use it for time lapse photography. It is also a great remote (delayed) shutter release when you want zero vibration from tripping the shutter.

                      Don't purchase this device. The connection to a canon camera doesn't secure like the three pin connector was intended. The Vello doesn't have the clip in part, therefore when it's bumped or a heavy wind blows it could possibly disconnect. Go ahead and spend the money on the canon version.

                      I like this remote. The cord on my Canon version got wanly and unreliable, and so for the price, I got this Vello version. Lots of features, maybe too many. In the dark, it's a bit hard to figure out just what you want. It will function as a shutter release without using all the interval features, though. Bigger than the Canon remote.

                      I got this intervalometer to experiment with time lapse photography. It is easy to program and easy to use. Just read the instructions, install the batteries, and start using it. This is my second Vello product and both perform as expected.

                        I used this product to start learning how to do time lapse videos. The Shutterboss is very easy to use. It comes with a simple instruction book. It works just as advertised and it is a lot less expensive than the Canon version.

                          Overall I love this product. I purchased it for use shooting night sky images with star trails, but also to shoot lightening during thunderstorms. And overall, I'm very impressed with it's functionality and affordability. Of note, I like the fact it uses ordinary batteries [AAA]. Second, the instructions are very easy to follow making the item very easy to use...in the dark with its backlight feature. On a negative note, however, I had to write my own instructions to combine the settings for Exposure Length + Timed Intervals + the Number of Images. That wasn't hard, but it helps reduce set up time in the dark. Lastly, when you're using it to take shots over a few hours you're only option is to let the Remote Switch hang from the cable unless you rig it some way for easier placement and visibility. For this reason I wish Vello would offer a sleave or clamp that would attach to a tripod leg where I can place the Remote Switch while in use for extended periods of time. For the time being I'm using rubber bands.

                          I have been using this for time lapse sky's over Georgia and can work with it. Only thing that annoys me is the very short time the light stays on after activating it as well as the lack of instruction on how to extend that time if it even exists. I was working and setting up a night time star set up and well it was not fun. still love the functionality of the unit as a whole and would recommend it.

                              This is the only timer remote switch that I've ever used and I don't know if more expensive options behave differently.Here are a few details that I've discovered. - Connection to the camera seems to hold but the connector does not go in very deep and there is no positive feed back to tell you "stop pushing". Feels like the connector get stuck midway and that you could do some damage by pushing harder.- Setting up the Shutterboss on 0 sec time exposure in order to control the shutter speed with the camera results in one shot less than programed in the Shutterboss (it seems to miss the first shot). This is not happening when the exposure time is controlled by the Shutterboss while the camera is set on Bulb mode.- Having the exposure time set up in the Shutterboss (1 sec minimum) and the camera controlling the shutter speed (to less than the exposure time set in the Shutterboss) results in taking series of burst of pictures. Equivalent to pressing the shutter button of the camera for the duration programed in the Shutterboss. This can result in some interesting time lapse effects.- Using the mirror lock up function in the camera is not compatible with multiple shot program (interval or total number of shot)- The Shutterboss setup is not goofproof, nothing prevents you to program an interval time that is shorter than the exposure time. In such a case the interval time will have the priority.

                                  I have used both.

                                  This I find much easier to use and more reliable than the name brand canon.

                                  Less price - more value.
