Sony: Most cameras are supported, however not all functions of the Extendá are available. Please see the manufacturer's Sony compatibility chart for detailed compatibility information.

*Certain cameras may require the use of the USB cable that comes supplied with the camera.

The Extendá connects directly to a camera via a USB cable and then creates an ad-hoc Wi-Fi network, allowing users to remotely control their camera using an application available on iOS, Android, Mac, or Windows devices. The Wi-Fi network has a range of 164', while an Ethernet port supports a wired connection to a computer.
Users will be able to remotely change settings such as shutter speed, ISO, aperture, exposure compensation, white balance, and more.
Live view mode provides a real-time stream from the camera to your device. This allows you to preview images, using a larger and more detailed screen, before they are taken.
The Extendá app supports touch focus/tap-to-focus functionality. This means you can just tap on your device's touchscreen to select which area of the scene to focus on. Alternatively, users can also manually control focus by adjusting the focal plane forward or backwards in small increments.
Set up the app for auto viewing of images to have each image streamed to a mobile device or computer immediately following capture. This allows a client or assistant to easily review images as they are taken. Also, users can use the Extendá app to browse images on the card and then select images to save to your mobile device or computer.
Create advanced timed exposures with the controls provided by the Extendá app. This includes delay timers for countdowns before your shot as well as an intervalometer for setting up time-lapses. A bulb mode is available as well for long exposures.
Focus stacking will allow you to take a series of photos with varying focus points that can be combined in post-processing software to create a single image with a wide depth-of-field.
Set up bracketing in order to make sure you don't miss the shot. This mode offers options for exposure bracketing using shutter speed, aperture, ISO, and exposure compensation. This tool can be used to help create HDR images using post-processing software.
A rule-of-thirds grid is available to help with composition in stills and video.
Powered by a built-in 3.7V 1800mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery, the Extendá can also be used to recharge mobile devices via its USB port.

Vello LW-100 Reviews

Just what I needed

By Mark
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-04-12

Was looking for something to turn an older camera (Nikon D7000) into wifi or Bluetooth capable and got the added bonus of remote operation and live view. Easy to set up and simple app. B&H as usual was a pleasure to deal with.

The WIFI is completely unreliable!

By Roland

I purchased this RC for doing camera control during timelapse recording. Too many times the RC lost its WIFI connection in the middle of the timelapse sequence, or while using it as a trigger for long exposure photography. Usually, I am standing 10 feet away or closer. LOOKING FOR ANOTHER SOLUTION.

Does not work well for Sony

By John

This might work ok for other camera systems, but I found it very poor for my Sony A7R3. Touch to focus was very inconsistent, if ever working. It would highlight in the app, but not actually change focus in the camera. Uploading of images was also very inconsistent and often didn't work. The device isn't capable of viewing images on Sony when it is also controlling and doing live view. You have to pick one or the other. That might be somewhat Sony's fault, but I didn't find that limitation clearly explained. The app also regularly exited out of Live view during use. I was hoping this would be a cheaper alternative to a Camranger. Instead, I just found it frustrating.

I expected the Vello LW-100 to disappoint. It did not.

By Paul

At the price point, I expected to be disappointed. I was not. My Vello LW-100 Extenda installed like a dream and then worked beautifully. It has already become a necessity when I need to make multiple exposures for bracketing and focus stacking. Wireless, hands off camera operation and live view on my computer were only a dream before this.

Performs as Promised!

I now have an easy solution for shooting wildlife photography with the LW-100 connected to a Nikon D3300. I have an experiment planned whereby I will mount a cold shoe on top of my Speedlite for attaching the LW-100 so I can try using the rig for group portraits.

Alternative to more costly or limited wireless remotes

By Michael

I have a Sony alpha 7 series camera. In theory, it's possible to connect it to a smart phone using a built-in app, but in my experience, Sony's app is somewhere between cumbersome and impossible to set up. The Vello sets up very quickly -- plug it to into your camera's micro-USB, set the USB on the camera per the Vello instructions, go to Settings on your phone, and sign into the Vello's wifi signal. Apart from setting your camera's USB port, you don't have to screw around with the camera's menu at all, and the Vello gives you a full range of controls. The new CamRange2 will work with Sony and many others, but it's much more expensive. I don't think this unit is as robust as CamRangers, and it took a long time to charge the li-ion battery the first time, but it does what it promises. There are Vello apps that let you use Apple & Android smart phones/tablets and both Windows and Mac. (I use a Mac, and it's a 64-bit app, so it's compatible with OS Catalina.)

Received the device 1/05/21 and was not able to try it out until this week. Discovered the menu options for focus stacking, advanced bracketing, etc. don't work. I have called support and now sent them an email with photos of problem . Will update this review when problem resolved.

If I wanted to set this up with a compatible Sony mirrorless camera in a box to do long term time lapse shots (weeks or months in durations), would this device allow photos to be automatically downloaded into a mobile device with cellular service in the same box and also automatically upload those photos to a file sharing service such as Dropbox without having to be interacted with (without having to open or otherwise disturb the box?
Asked by: Martin
Setting up your device using the LW-100 Extendá to download and automatically upload your photos to a file sharing service can be done. However, the LW-100 Extendá is not designed for continuous use and may not operate perform well under these conditions.

Asked by: Or
You can reset your device by pressing the reset button down for 3 seconds (button #3 See page 3 in the user’s manual). This action will enable you to create a new password under the settings menu and grant you access to the App.
