  • 1Description

Set up elaborate time-lapses, perform long exposures, or simply trigger your camera remotely with the Wireless ShutterBoss III Remote Switch with Digital Timer from Vello, which is available here with cables for select Canon cameras. This remote features a 2.4 GHz frequency along with a 250' range for maximum versatility and reliability. The transmitter also has access to 99 channels and features specialized functionality such as continuous shooting, self-timer, long time exposures, and interval shooting.

Multiple time settings can be accessed from the transmitter's backlit LCD screen, such as the ability to set a number of shots from 1-999 or to infinitely take photos. The duration of an exposure can also be set all the way up to 99 hours 59 minutes and 59 seconds in one-second increments.

The ShutterBoss III does work as a dual-function release, allowing users to press halfway to focus or press full to trigger the shutter. It can also be set to take multiple photos with a single press of the shutter and has LED indicators to confirm pre-focus and exposure. The ShutterBoss III can also function both wired or wirelessly to better fit your particular setup. Additionally, both the receiver and the transmitter run on two AAA batteries.

    Vello ShutterBoss III reviews

    Wireless ShutterBoss III Remote Switch with Digital Timer for Select Canon Cameras is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well, as expected My old shutterboss transmitter wasn't working (unresponsive to setting parameters), so I was interested in this new model. No price shown (even now), so I ordered by phone. Just received it yesterday, and it works well in wireless mode. If I attach the old receiver to one camera, and the new receiver to another, the new transmitter will trigger both. This new version has the ability to shoot up to 999 shots rather than 99 on my old one. This makes it usable for star trails and I plan to try some star trails soon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would not be without it I have the 2nd version versus this (the 3rd version) but they are very similar. I use mine on a Canon T5 for moon/star and wildlife photography. It works extremely well and I would definately buy again if I lost or damaged the one I own at present. I have also bought several connecting cords for other cameras I own (Olympus E510 and Nikon F90S) and they all perform well with this remote. I use mine remotely to take bird shots and it perfroms well when watching through the window of my home 45' away from the camera. I also use it with cameras mounted on a tripod to minimize vibration. Works very well and I highly recommend!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Concept, but be cautious. I have used the Vello Wireless Shutterboss on a number of occasions (e.g. for a wedding where I needed second story shots at the same time as shooting at ground level. Wide angle lens on a tripod-mounted 5D Mk IV with the shutterboss at a remote distance of approx. 75'), and it performs well once up and running. Good response to the remote signal, light, and easy to use.� There is just one issue I have experienced several times, which moved this unit from 5 stars to 3:� for a reason known only to Vello, the + terminal battery connections are quite cheaply designed and manufactured. They use wire coil connectors recessed a bit for the battery to connect with. However, they occasionally flex too far back into the unit when putting in batteries, and suddenly the unit will not work. If there are no time pressures, you will figure it out, but when under the gun to get your gear set up, toss in the batteries in, try to power up, and suddenly the unit doesn't work, it is crazy making. I ended up pulling the wires out of the recess a bit with a small screwdriver, and they seem to be OK, but now I always need to check them, so just one more item for the list.� Be forewarned.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nearly perfect Vello but not quite I purchased both the Vello Wireless shutterboss III Remote Switch model and the corded version Vello Shutterboss II model (with permanently cord attached) as a back up. Frustratingly my first 6-10 minutes was trying to get the the wireless remote unit to power up ..thanks to previous reviewer comment..yes one of the battery coil connectors was regressed so that it wasnt connecting to the battery properly ...after a fiddle around with a screwdriver I prized it out a bit and everything worked as it should..whether it will continue to do so ..time will tell after having the unit now just over a week. I always take batteries out remotes etc after going out so they dont salt or decay in the device if they should sit over time so I have made a mental note to battery up before heading out and making sure everything is working ..nothing worse than getting out for an Astro shoot and finding gear not working as it should. But Vello really needs to sort this battery connector issue out. Come on Vello we can do a lot better in battery connector design please. The Shutterboss wireless hand held works a dream ..very happy with the two Astro shoots and one Macro shoot so far.� I like the clear labeling on this wireless unit where the corded Vello shutterboss II the labeling is rather dim (not so good at night). Note too to scroll through your menu to N ...the default is set at infinite shots ie -- not at one. When using the Wireless hand held timer unit directly connected (without the remote) to the camera everything worked well ...the connector pin to the top of the timer unit fits snug and doesnt (at this new age) seem to slip out if left hanging by the connector cord from the camera. I purchased the Ruggard timer case (thanks for the pop up B+H) as an add on ..well worth it. Nearly perfect Vello...but not quite.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent remote switch and timer This is an excellent remote switch and timer. It is also a good value and appears to be constructed well. In the relative short time that I have owned one, it has operated without problems. If you want a case or pouch for the Shutterboss III, I recommend the Lowepro Tahoe 25 II. Although this case is for compact cameras, it is ideal for the Shutterboss. The transmitter and receiver fit well in this case and the cable fits in the zippered front pocket.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I do star photography and it's a vital piece of gear First - it's wireless which is vital for night photography since you can take images from your warm car while your camera freezes. It's responsive with a full range of options for multiple/time release/delay - etc.� And easy to use.� If the Vello folks are listening - move the light button to the side to make it easier to find and use.� But that doesn't take away from my 5 star rating.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great item for the camera bag! I purchased this (actually version II) and I absolutely would recommend this remote. Works great, has a super-long range and reliable. I use it for night photography to avoid camera shake and for nature photography. Works extremely well. If you own other brands of cameras you can also purchase additional cords so you can connect your camera to the remote. One of my favorite purchases that I use regularly. One note - always have spare batteries!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable/Cheap BEWARE! Had 5 min. on this device to test and how well this product works before my vacation in Alaska and would not work the day I needed it. While I stood there getting eaten alive by prehistoric mosquitoes, trying to figure out why the shutter would not fire thinking it was me or the camera. Lucky for me, I trusted my instinct to bring my reliable $40 manual shutter to finish the job for this over priced junk. When I got back home from vacation, I decided to run some test why this unit would not work. I connected the device manually and even used the cable that I had on my other shutter and it worked. Well come to realized it was the receiver was the problem. I called B&H regarding my issues, and since it was past the returned warranty, they sent me to "Gradius Group/Vello" to get replacement since they have 1 year factory warranty. I now have to ship the product out of my own pocket that cost me $17 that would take a week to get there and another week to receive the product. The least they could do is give me a free shipping after paying $80 on this cheap unreliable product that had 5 min work time and for ruining my vacation. FYI! just like the other commenters on their reviews, the battery springs/terminals are regress far back. I would recommend to bring your manual shutter just in case things go sideways. I have and purchased an Energizer manual shutter at Best Buy that I put to used and abuse and still work to get the photos I needed for Astro and low light etc....
