    Comments about Vello Shutterboss Version II Timer Remote Switch for Nikon with 10-Pin Connection:

    I'll keep it short and to the point. This remote does what you need it to do, and makes shooting time lapses a breeze. At this point I don't see the need to pay more for a "name brand" remote that does the same thing.

        This works perfectly. The interface is a little strange, I have yet to figure out how to stop the red light from blinking but overall it's exactly what I wanted. No more setting a stop watch and having to run over to the camera!

        The light stays on for a very short time. I would like it to stay on a little longer but not a huge deal.

        Ordered this for a remote trigger for a Nikon D810. Works great. Seems like it is well made with quality plastic. Screen is easy to read. Doe what it's supposed to do without any issues.

            This is an excellent remote release packed full of features at an affordable price. My only wish is that it would be half the size.

                Comments about Vello Shutterboss Version II Timer Remote Switch for Nikon with 10-Pin Connection:

                This timer was recommended to me by a well known photographer who uses the same camera I have, a Nikon D800. I knew it would be a good piece of equipment and it is. Very intuitive and therefore once you get the gist of the modes you can easily figure out the rest without reading the instructions. Mainly I use this for shutter speeds above 30 seconds since my camera's built-in intervalometer does pretty much everything else this timer does. Can anyone tell me with all of our current technology and cameras getting smarter and smarter, even the most expensive cameras don't have shutter speeds slower than 30 seconds?

                  I've used this little guy on a few shoots now - sometimes as a way to avoid touching the camera (for pixel perfect alignment between shots) and sometimes as a way to program it. It works very well in both instances.

                    This timer is working just as it is suppose to. I am in a night photography class and we all needed timers. I love the fact it lights up, not to brightly, so you can see what settings you are dialing in. Many of my classmates don't have this feature and have to use their phones or flashlight.

                      Works perfectly.

                      What I like most is that it is almost foolproof, unlike wireless set ups. This remote will even trigger your camera if the remote batteries are dead! Boom.

                          Have used every feature and it works very well. One thing I like about it is that you can program a combination of a delay and a long exposure time. If you are going to be away from your tripod, keep in mind that in windy conditions the controller will swing a lot, even though the long cord is convenient. A very small nit is that you cannot really turn it off permanently without removing the batteries. If it sits in your bag and something else presses against it, the unit will turn on.

                          In summary, it does everything it is supposed to do. For the price, consider having this in your kit.

                            Looking for a way to time exposures over thirty seconds I decided to try this over the much pricier Nikon version. So far I could not be could not be more pleased. It works perfectly and is easy to use. Excellent for my uses, it is a reasonably priced, useful accessory and of course B&H fast shipping just makes it better!

                              I was going to buy the Nikon versus but saw the good reviews and went ahead with the Vello. No problem with this item. I use it with my D700 for vibration reduction when the camera is on a tripod. So far so good!

                                  A great cost effective alternative to costlier options, plus it has an off switch. I tend to stick with OEM gear, but I thought I would give this a try. It's easy to use, directions are simple, and works as advertised. I'm happy with my purchase.

                                    I found this device easy to use after a quickly scanning the instructions. It allows me to time long night exposures. It has a light and it can use both sound and subtle led blinks to let you know that all is working correctly. I look forward to using it for creating time lapse sequences. It is well made.

                                      I have only used this a few times since the initial purchase, but it works great and the price is within reason. The quality is good and I especially like the locking mechanism for the 10 pin connector.
