B&H has put together this Vello Accessory Kit for Canon T6i/T6s to give photographers the ability to focus and trigger their camera remotely and wirelessly. The kit contains a battery grip for the camera, LCD screen protector, FreeWave Plus Wireless Shutter Release for Canon, and a cap keeper.
Vello Battery Grip
Designed specifically for the Canon EOS Rebel T6i and T6s DSLR cameras, the BG-C13 Battery Grip from Vello will help shooters dramatically extend their shooting time as well as offer additional comfort and controls for vertical, or portrait, orientation shooting. The BG-C13's biggest advantage is that it can hold up to two LP-E17 series battery packs, effectively doubling the battery capacity. Also, it features a vertical position shutter release along with aperture value/exposure compensation, AF point selection/magnify, and AE lock/FE lock/index/reduce buttons, as well as a main dial to make vertical shooting feel natural.
To further increase usability, the BG-C13 has a hand strap mount as well as a 1/4"-20 tripod socket, which aligns with the lens mount for balance. Additionally, this battery grip has a built-in holder for the camera's battery chamber door. This combination of features can dramatically improve ergonomics and make shooting faster and more intuitive.
The Vello Glass LCD Screen Protector is a sheet of 0.02" (0.5mm) ultra-thin optical glass used to protect your camera's LCD monitor. The glass features 6 layers of material that protect your display screen from dirt, scratches, sweat, and oily fingerprints. The glass also blocks UV rays while allowing visible light in. The protector is easy to install and remove.
FreeWave Wireless Remote Shutter Release
Trigger your camera's shutter wirelessly with the FreeWave Plus Wireless Remote Shutter Release from Vello, a lightweight remote control system that will help you avoid unwanted camera movement. This 2.4 GHz model is compatible with Canon cameras and will work both wired and wirelessly up to 320', depending on your own needs and setup. This makes it useful for photographing wildlife or for macro and long exposures where it is necessary to eliminate any chance of camera shake.
The FreeWave system also has access to 16 channels for triggering multiple receivers and has an internal antenna that's protected from any accidental damage. Multiple features are available for shooting, such as a four-second delay as well as multi-exposure and long exposure modes. The device also has a dual function release, enabling focus on half press and triggering the shutter release on a full press. Additionally, it has LED indicators to confirm pre-focus and exposure while in wireless mode. The receiver and transmitter each run on two AAA batteries.
The Cap Keeper Plus Lens Cap Holder from Sensei prevents the loss of lens caps. An adhesive-backed disc secures the lens cap to the elastic leash which wraps around the lens barrel. With the lens cap removed from the lens while shooting, it hangs out of the way but secure and within reach for easy retrieval. The Cap Keeper Plus is made with tough and extremely secure elastic.
