Remotely trigger your camera's shutter with the Bluetooth ShutterBoss Advanced Intervalometer from Vello. The intervalometer works with most Nikon DSLR cameras, and allows you to control your camera from a compatible iOS smart device. In addition to the intervalometer mode, you can also trigger the shutter in single shot mode, continuous mode, bulb mode, or self-timer mode.

The Bluetooth ShutterBoss is ideal for shooting time lapse videos, star trails, or any other image where you need to remotely trigger your camera. Remotely triggering your camera can help capture sharp images by preventing you from actually pressing the shutter button on the camera. The iOS app makes it easy to set all of your required settings for the given situation, upload them to the ShutterBoss, and let the trigger do the rest.

Whether it's for simple shutter release, extended self-timer options, continuous shooting, long exposures, or time-lapse shooting, the Bluetooth ShutterBoss is the ideal tool for the job.

Wireless Bluetooth Communication
Utilizing Bluetooth radio frequency to communicate with apple devices, you can wirelessly program the intervalometer and trigger the camera.
This device allows you to schedule up to 10 shooting sessions for anytime in the future.
ShutterBoss App
To set the intervalometer and trigger the camera shutter, simply download the free Vello Bluetooth ShutterBoss app from the App Store on your compatible Apple device.
Intervalometer mode allows you to choose the duration of a time lapse, how many shots are in the time lapse, and the interval between exposures. You set the shutter speed, aperture, ISO, and focus in-camera before starting your time lapse.
Shutter Release
The ShutterBoss can also act as a standard wireless shutter release. From the home page of the app you can choose between single mode, continuous mode, bulb mode, and self-timer mode. Each mode has its own button that swipes to the right to trigger the shutter.

Vello RCB-TN reviews

Bluetooth ShutterBoss Advanced Intervalometer for Nikon Cameras is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product but not working with IOS 9 Works very good and you are not limited to the 399 shots limit as the normal Shutterboss. The only problem at the moment is that the app is not working with IOS 9. After I did the update I couldn't use it anymore. That's the only reason for the 3 stars. I hope they are going to fix this soon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I would wait for an upgrade to resolve this problem. There is a design flaw that needs to be addressed. In the battery compartment one of the spaces has compression springs at both ends. It makes it difficult to insert and almost impossible to remove without causing slight damage to the spring on the positive terminal side. Continued wear and tear will be a problem. I do not like to store my equipment with the batteries in place. Otherwise it functions well. I would pay more if the unit was a little more substantial in design. Nylon housing rather than plastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get in the picture this was great for Holiday family portraits and casual photographs. Setting a timer and running to get into the photo or waiting for the flash is annoying. This product solves the problem

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hasn't worked in months! Initially, this product worked great. Super easy to use with my iphone and D7100. I upgraded my iOS last fall and it hasn't worked since then...several months. I emailed their customer support and they said they were 'working on it'. Don't buy it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money for me! I use the shutterboss 3 and love it for a few years now. I do a lot of Night Photography using the bulb mode. I find myself using my phone for light to check time remaining frequently because it’s easier to see than the LED on the remote. I purchased the Bluetooth version thinking this would correct my problem. Then I would use my iPhone for the remote. I always have my phone and that would eliminate an extra device to carry. That was my thinking anyway so I spent the $80. Problem 1: when using the cable release mode there isn’t a timer in the app that starts. How do you time your shots? Your watch or back out of the app and run a timer app on your phone? Problem 2: I contacted Vello and explained my concerns. They replied the following “Thank you for the valuable feedback regarding your experiece with the Vello Bluetooth Shutterboss. your comments have been shared to our product development team for evaluation. Or product manager for the ShutterBoss product line added this insight: "Due to the nature of the way the scheduled program in the app is transferred into the reciever, the app doesn't continue to have communication with the receiver during the cycle of operation so that you can leave the program to run autonomously without tying up your smart device." If a feature as you describe will find its way into future versions of the app firmware is too soon to comment on, but we are grateful for your insight.” Vello should have made that clear in their specifications to the potential customer. I’m very unhappy. I just wasted $80! Think twice and read the other reviews before making this purchase

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wouldn't bluetooth connect Quality of material was acceptable - mostly plastic but not cheap. Wouldn't Bluetooth connect with my iPhone 6, so app wouldn't work. Connected it to D700 and manual button on device caused shutter release. Seems to be Bluetooth issue only.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works fine now Handy and permits use of the phone already with you. When I set it up the first time my phone screen showed fail. So I called B&H and they suggested I reload the ap and all worked fine
