This remote is a MUST for time lapse photos the only limit is the size of the memory card and camera batteries. There are so many settings it is almost limitless. There is a learning curve but it is pretty simple to use and if there are any questions the folks at Vello answer emails quickly. I used this for night time lapse photos in Canyonlands National Park and it worked like a dream. The long exposure setting is great for taking photos of stars since most cameras will only go as far as a 30 second exposure time. Just wish there was a "gadget" bag to hold the 3 parts but that ius not a big deal.

Its fast and reliable and does not rely on line of sight. Cables available for different camera brands.

The CR2 battery voltage drops too low to power the unit in cold weather. Won't work at freezing temperatures.

    Comments about Vello Wireless ShutterBoss Timer Remote (Nikon 10-Pin Connection):

    Makes long exposure so easy. Setup is quick and it's easy to learn. The first one stopped working within 2 weeks of limited use so the quality is questionable. Only time will tell.

      Comments about Vello Wireless ShutterBoss Timer Remote (Nikon 10-Pin Connection):

      Though it might take just a few minutes to get the hang of, it works as promised and it is muc cheaper than some of the other manufacturer alternatives. I purchased it for shooting star trails and wanted something more than the onboard intervoltometer that Nikon offered on their D800 and D2x. This fit the bill. And being wireless there is no need to worry about securing wires during the exposure.

      Comments about Vello Wireless ShutterBoss Timer Remote (Nikon 10-Pin Connection):

      I use this for astrophotography and it works fine with a D800. I have a simpler wireless shutter release for non-interval shots. For interval or time lapse shots this does the trick, though it can be tricky to learn.

          I bought this as a replacement to a really low priced wired timer. That timer worked fine except for the rough 10 pin connection. It always worried me that a pin or two would break in the socket and would be a nightmare to get out. This one plugs in very smooth. I tested the functions, they work very well. Everything is as I expected. I'm slashing one star for the price. I think a hundred bucks is a bit high for what I consider to be a fairly simple gadget.

                At first, I was like, why would I need this.Since getting it, and using it, I am loving it.Simple, easy to use, and really nice that I can include myself in some shots and not rely on the timer built into my camera.If you have some extra money and want to gift yourself a nice toy, this is it.When used with a tripod, and head, you will guarantee yourself a nice vibration free shot.

                I use the Shutterboss on a D810 for long exposures. It is convenient to use. I like the count down feature on the hand control (I can wait in the truck until near the end).

                  The Vello Wireless Shutterboss is a great remote at a very sweet price point. I got it in 1 day from B&H as advertised. The product was packaged well, as is everything I purchase from B&H. Put the batteries in, hooked it up and it works as advertised. Instructions are atraight forward, and the remote is easy to operate. I will mainly use it for landscape photography, mostly sunrise and sunsets.

                    Simple to use and programme. Excellent for when any vibration or movement can ruin a shot especially with long exposures.
                    Good quality and reliable.

                    Aside from allowing the shooter to actuate the shutter from a distance, this timer allows programming a delay, a long exposure, interval between shots, and the number of shots. All wirelessly or wired. What I wish it could also do is program a shutter release to the second from a clock. (I shoot Iridium satellite flares that occur at precisely determined times.) This inability is the only drawback. I would have liked the hand-help unit better if it were smaller. It takes up more space than needed, IMO. Otherwise, this is easy to use and works very well. I like it.

                        The Vello remote works as described. I like the many functions come with it. This is my first time use it for July 4th firework shooting, and had some issue with the wireless trigger. May be someone else is using the same remote control and set on the same channel. My was working intermittently, so I reconnect the cable directly to the remote release. It worked fine then. So, I still give it 5 stars.
