              Comments about Vello FreeWave Camera Release Cable for Select Canon, Pentax, Samsung Cameras:

              This is a compact, lightweight and very effective means of releasing the shutter of a DSLR from a remote location. It does not require line of sight as do infra red remotes. The camera cord that comes with the unit is camera specific but cords for other camera models are available for about $. This is the perfect remote release for travel photography, low light/slow shutter speed photography or any situation where the camera is tripod mounted.

                As advertised and reviewed.

                It works out of the box. Awesome to now have remote that works canon nikon and all the models. Longevity no clue but it works and cheap enough I don't care really.

                My only useful comment about this and the original cable is that it is coiled. This is great on the camera with the wireless shutter boss. It is annoying however if you hook it up direct to a remote its pretty short to use as a release.

                Just wish they had straight version and I'd have both.

                  Works but it should be part of the cagle release package as is when one gets the other popular brand, which I believe I am not prmitted to mention.

                      Cable arrived quickly in good shape. When plugged into camera and into wireless shutter release controller, worked perfectly the first time. I look forward to using it with my Canon T3i for a number of projects.

                          I use it with my Canon 60D and it works perfectly. I originally bought RC-6 Wireless release but it only worked from a couple of feet away from the camera and only if you point it straight to the sensor. This shutter release works from up to 100m (I haven't tested it from that far tho, only from 30 feet or so and it worked great).
                          The downside is that you need to attach the piece to the camera and turn it on, before you shoot. But if you ask me it's worth it, cos you can be anywhere withing 100m around your camera and shoot with no problem at all.
                          Great for self portraits, camera shy animals and wild life, and tripod shots that need cable release to eliminate camera shake.
                          Great product. Highly recommended.

                              Now that I have the right release cable it makes things work right. This allows me to do self portraits without setting the timer on the camera and then ran back and get into position to take photo. Or to elimanate any camera shake on long exposure shots. I'm real happy I got this.

                                    This cable works well. I ordered it because I bought the wrong camera release package, so I had the cable to hook up with the 5D. Now that I have this my shutter release works perfect and I can do all the shots that I couldn't before.

                                      I was given a Vello wireless shutter release as a gift, but the wrong model was bought so the cable did not match my camera. I quickly got on B&H and within a few days I was taking amazing landscape shots with my wireless shutter release.

                                      Works flawlessly every time I use it. I purchased to take family photos so I could be in them. Before I was setting the timer then running to be in the picture.

                                            Not much to say. It's a coil-spring like cable with 2.5mm TRS connectors at each end. It has a nice quality feel to it.

                                              I use this product with my Freewave remote on my Canon 60D camera. It functions perfectly.
