Vello RS-S2II overview

  • 1Description

Whether you are shooting in the studio or outdoors, the Vello RS-S2II Wired Remote Switch provides photographers using select Sony cameras that feature the Multi-Terminal connection with a simple way to control exposures and an easy-to-use tool to create more "keepers". The device is larger and more comfortable to use than many other remote devices, with a thick, sturdy cord.

The RS-S2II is compatible with autofocusing, continuous shooting or single image capture, and long exposures. It will autofocus on a half press of the button and trigger the shutter with a full press. Also, users can press the button and slide it forward to lock it for long exposures. Since you can trigger exposures without touching the camera, you will capture sharp, blur-free images. Additionally, the unit does not require batteries as it draws its power from the camera, making it an extremely useful tool to keep in your studio or gear bag.

    Vello RS-S2II reviews

    RS-S2II Wired Remote Switch for Select Sony Cameras with Multi-Terminal is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 56.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great and quality feel For the price this is a great product. I've used it multiple times with a Sony a6000. It is quick, locks easily for long exposures. Connector and cable seem to be good enough quality. The remote is well made, I kind of expected it to feel cheap for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Accessory -- Works VerycWell Am using this with an Sony RX100M3 and it works just as advertised. It is incredible particularly for the price. The quality far exceeds what I expected for the price as well -- it is nicely made an quite solidly constructed. Very pleased with this accessory.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great functionality with A7ii Bought this for my Sony A7ii and it works nicely for long exposures etc. bulb shots are fun with this. For $10 you can't go wrong. It auto focuses for a half press and then shoots with a full press down, which I like. I was using the 2 second timer for shutter release but I prefer this as my tripod is a lightweight travel model that has more vibration than I would like.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this again This works just fine. Press for focus then press all the way for the photo or press down and slide to keep the shutter open. I have another unit with more functions that uses batteries. However, most of the time I just need to take the pic without without touching the camera and this works just fine and doesn't need to rely on batteries to work. We all know that just when you need to use something the battery dies and so do you! Also the cord length is pretty good.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Broke first time using it This seemed to be a pretty good item the first few days I was using it on a photography workshop. But on day 2 or 3 it just stopped working. Sometimes button would get stuck in depressed position even though I did not have the hold on. Sometimes if I banged the remote against my hand I could get the button to pop out or get it to start working again for a couple more shots then it would quit again. Very disappointed as I am having a hard time finding a shutter release that fits my camera. Worried to order another one of these lest it does the same thing...

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from You Get What You Pay For If you're a serious photographer and except to remote shoot more than a couple thousand exposures, don't touch this little devil. It will break you're heart. I've gone through five in the last two years the last one, the one that broke my heart only this morning, served me only three month before letting me down at the worse possible time. Purchased May 3, 2017 at B&H. From now on I'll stick with Sony.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands-free easy photography This was an amazing purchase. I used it with my Sony A6000, just plugged it in and worked right away. This was really clutch when I was photographing the northern lights. A- I kept this in my hand in my jacket - can't beat having warm hands, and B- Once I had the right setting, you can use the auto switch - and the camera would fire off on it's own every 5-8 seconds as set on my camera. This was amazing for being able to enjoy the moment myself and not let the photography take me too away from it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific value! Given the fact that this Vello remote is 1/5 the price of the official Sony product, I was skeptical and feared I was throwing my money away. I have the official Sony cable remote for my A7r2 and have been very in satisfied with it. The cable is separate and can disconnect from the switch body when dangling from the camera. It has additional controls intended for video, which I don't use, and the shutter release just was annoying to use. When in use, I could not make adjustments to the shutter or F stop. Strange AND annoying. The Vello is just a shutter release. The cable is permanent to the release body. It works perfectly and I can adjust the camera settings when it is plugged in. For the price, it is a great value, and for my needs is a better product than the Sony, hands down. Recommended.
