The Shutterboss Version II Timer Remote Switch for Nikon with DC2 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 DC2 connection, for example: Nikon D90, D600, D3100, D3200, D5000, D5100 and D7000 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.

Compatible Cameras
Nikon: Df, D90, D600, D610, D3100, D3200, D3300, D5000, D5100, D5200, D5300, D7000 and D7100; CoolPix P7800

The ShutterBoss will give you an audible beep for the last three seconds of a countdown delay or interval. It will also beep to confirm your settings. The beep can be turned off if necessary.
Power Off and Reset Options
The Shutterboss Version II has been updated with two new features, the Power Off option which gives the ability to power the device off to conserve battery life and the Reset option which allows the Shutterboss to be reset to the default settings, so that each setting does not need to be reset individually.

          Great product, works as listed.
          I had an old generation of this as well, and it sill works. I wanted the new version because of the power on/off and reset buttons.

                Comments about Vello Shutterboss Version II Timer Remote Switch for Nikon with DC2 Connection:

                I'm still new to the device. It works well. To use a fire arm term, I tend to "thumb" the camera (pull right) when I fire the camera. At fast shutter speeds, it's not a problem but at very slow speeds shooting off a tripod I can tell. I used the age old trick of using the camera's timer delay, but it's not convinient. The remote switch helps a lot. I've used other features of the remote switch as well and I'm statisfied. A feature it lacks but would be nice is a clip to fasten wire to tripod. That way it prevents you from pulling on the connection to the camera if you move to far.

                  Nikon does not make a remote timer for my model DSLR ( D5200 ). The Shutterboss is an awesome product. I have not had time to run it through all of it's functions, but the few I have, I would highly recommended this to anyone .. whether Nikon makes the remote for your DSLR or not.

                    Good looking device, well packaged with a useful instruction booklet.
                    My one complaint is that it is difficult to insert the connection into the camera. It is very tight and must be aligned perfectly. After doing so, you must push the connector as far in as possible or it will not respond.

                      This remote switch is great for anyone with big hands. I have the Nikon DC2 Remote Switch and I have trouble holding on to it. I have been using all of the features it affords and love it. But the one drawback is the manual shutter release button keeps sliding forward and locking the sutter. It could be a little stiffer.

                        This is a very useful unit for long exposure for my astrophotography. If the exposure is needed to be longer than 30 second, this is a must-have unit at the price around $. Make sure to check the compatability with your camera before you buy.

                          Excellent product, couldn't be happier. Eliminates any movement involved with holding the camera and also allows control over functions without resetting the field.Love it.

                          This unit is solid and easy to use. I have it for my D7100. It would be even better for older cameras that have fewer functions built in. I wish Vello would sell adapters for a variety of cameras. I have a D80 with the DC-1 connector, I would like to use it for some time-lapse work. One thing you can do with the RC-N2 is to set the camera taking a video and stop it with time set on the RC-N2. The RC-N2 will then do time-lapse.

                            I use the Shutterboss mostly for night photography. No doubt I will find more uses as time passes.

                            Nikon's small coin-cell remote will let you down. Too far, too bright, wrong angle, etc. There was always something preventing a remote triggering of my camera. The Shutterboss outperforms small wireless units by permitting a custom delay well beyond the limits of my Nikon's firmware. Now I have time to set the camera and then climb out to precarious rock outcroppings before the shutter activates.

                            The one thing I wish was included was an ON/OFF switch. Perhaps it's best just to yank out the batteries anyway.

                            This corded trigger worked great! I wasn't sure if it would perform as well as the brand name (Nikon) equivalent, but I was surprisingly impressed with its quality and functionality. It's a great buy and I would recommend it to friends and family.

                              I use this as both a simple remote, an intervalometer, a way to bracket for HDR when shooting in RAW (which is almost always) and a way to push myself to further think about new ways to shoot and accomplish those ideas accurately and precisely.
