The Vello FreeWave Viewer VL Wireless Live View Remote Kit with AV/Shutter & Infrared Cables for Canon 5D Mark II from B&H is a transmitter and 3.5" monitor kit that includes a FreeWave Viewer VL Data Cable designed for use with the Canon 5D Mark II for attaching the transmitter to the camera for proper operation. Also included is the infrared cable for starting and stopping video recording on this camera. This system allows for wireless viewing and remote shutter triggering of your compatible DSLR camera.

The Vello FreeWave Viewer VL Wireless Live View Remote consists of a 2.4GHz radio transmitter, and a monitor receiver with a 3.5" Live View TFT-LCD screen. Together, the transmitter and receiver provide a wireless viewing system that enables remote shutter control from a distance of up to 328'/100m.

The live view monitor features a 3.5" display with a 320 x 240 resolution that is able to provide a view of what your camera is seeing. A removable pop-up shade allows for improved viewing when shooting in direct sunlight or brightly lit situations. The monitor's design integrates a remote shutter release button that supports half-press control for pre-focusing. A dedicated button allows switching between AV (live view) and CCTV modes for different perspectives of monitoring, and a channel switch button permits changing between different transmitter channels. A 1/4"-20 tripod mount is located on the bottom of the unit for hands free viewing. Both the brightness and contrast of the display can be manually controlled.

The transmitter can be attached to the camera via its hot shoe, and connects to the camera using the included Y-cable. The AV connection provides the live view signal for remote viewing on the monitor, and the shutter release connection allows for wirelessly triggering the shutter from the monitor. A CCTV camera is integrated into the transmitter's design and incorporates a 45mm lens (35mm equivalent focal length) to provide another perspective for viewing subjects in front of the camera. The CCTV camera is especially useful to monitor when a moving subject is about to enter the frame for situations when you're using a telephoto or long lens to photograph. Additionally this camera's functionality is ideal for use when the connected camera does not support live view or if trying to conserve the camera's battery life for extended viewing sessions. The 2.4GHz radio transmitter has four selectable channels for greater control when more than one unit is being used within 328' proximity.

FreeWave Viewer VL Wireless Live View Remote Kit with AV/Shutter & Infrared Cables for Canon 5D Mark II is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very capable cost-effective live view remote solution The Vello Freewave VL kit is a cost-effective means of providing wireless remote control with live-view capabilities for my Canon EOS 5D MkII/MkIII cameras. Several months of regular location and studio use have proven the 2.4 GHz single band, 100-meter maximum range, and 3.5-inch 240 x 320-pixel TFT LCD more than adequate for my needs, the Freewave performing flawlessly. The optional VCC-20 data cable is a must for the 5D MkII (the VCC-40 remote connector couples and works, but the A/V out connector isn't compatible). Hopefully Vello works out data cables for the 5D MkIV and 5DS R (I've kluged a clunky way to downscale and route HDMI output through a Marshall monitor with appropriate A/V out mini ports that works with the VCC-40 cable). A clearly written and adequately illustrated user guide leaves no intimidating learning curve to master, with relatively quick transition to real-world use. Physical set-up is straightforward; camera and viewer functions are controlled via easily navigated menus on board the viewer. Brightness/contrast controls and the built-in pop-out sunshade provide decent displays under strong ambient illumination, but inadequate for critical assessment of focus, DOF, camera leveling, etc. Field tests suggest line-of-sight operating distances averaging 110 meters, but practical work has so far been limited to about 30 meters outdoors, 8 meters or so indoors. No perceptible lag-time between triggering with Freewave controls and camera response; no issues with camera or viewer system lock-ups or interference in indoor or outdoor settings impacted by other wireless traffic. A Watson Compact Charger kit with three NP-60 batteries (reviewed elsewhere on the B & H site) purchased along with the Vello kit charges nearly exhausted batteries in 35 ? 40 minutes, as opposed to 2.5 hours for Vello equipment, which can't be used during charging. I highly recommend this very versatile accessory for the Vello kit.
