The transmitter and receiver are each powered with just two AAA batteries (not included) and quickly pair with an Automatic Smart Code.

Interval Shooting

Easily trigger a camera at timed intervals up to 99 hours, 59 minutes, 59 seconds in one-second increments. Set a timed delay, the interval between shots and the exposure time. This is ideal for shooting long exposures and time-lapse photos, like flower blossoms and star trails.

Two Second Delay

Set up a self-portrait in front of the camera with extra time to prepare for the shot.

Exposure Count

Select anywhere from 1 to 199 continuous shots or set the ShutterBoss 4.0 to take an unlimited number of exposures.

Exposure Time Bracketing

Bracketing a series of shots allows several images at different exposures to be captured. These images can later be combined in post to create HDR photos or use this feature to select the best exposed image.

Wireless Range

Shoot from up to 196 feet away to capture candid photos or take pictures of dangerous wildlife from a safe distance.

Smart Code Pairing

Smart code pairing works automatically and chooses the best frequency between the transmitter and receiver. This way you can use both devices right out of the box with very little setup time.

Backlit LCD Display

The backlit LCD panel provides visual reference to your settings as well as activity indicators showing what's currently running on the remote. The display also illuminates for working in low-light situations. Even in the dark, you can be in control.

Audible Beep

The ShutterBoss provides an audible confirmation after each exposure in a sequence or disabled for silent operation.

Lower Range Than Anticipate

Using this at a range of 20-40 ft, it works well, but sometimes does not trigger at longer distance. Beware of advertised rage, which is much longer.

5 Stars thanks to B&H

I have 2 Shutter Boss 2's and bought this to more easily program multiple interval shots, it is easier to program than my 2's. The headline is based upon my call to B & H customer service upon discovering the new cable for use with my Nikon Z7ii and Z6ii was defective. I had only used the 10 pin plug on the older units on my D 850's so I did not test the other Nikon micro cable. Really wish Nikon had kept the lockable, round 10 pin plugs on the Z6 and Z7. I tested my older Shutter Boss 2 micro cables and one was also defective, but I had one that functioned. B & H was great as always in replacing the defective cable and that is the reason for the 5 star rating. Lesson learned: always test everything upon receipt. Thanks B&H customer service, you continue to be the best around.

Wired or wireless it's a done deal!

Triple 'A' batteries are light and simple to replace. The instruction booklet is excellent! Read it and practice until it it's second nature. Once learned the use is infinite!

I've been looking for a wireless remote for awhile, but once I started astro photography I really needed one. Works perfectly, a very nice tool. Should have gotten this years ago. Will be trying some remote photography for wildlife shots. Highly recommend.

It does everything I've asked it to do so far. However, I haven't used a lot since receiving it.
