Interval Shooting

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

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.

I use this to get bulb exposures of 2 minutes, I works great.

Magic!

It is so nice when something works out of the box exactly the way you hoped it would. I charged my batteries, plugged the Vello into my R5 then bam. It worked. And it worked from, across the room and across the yard. Haven't begun trying the additional release options. I just needed a remote with good range. Those who ask why not use the Canon Wireless App on my phone? I have been using that for years - before my R5. It works nicely - when it works. But all too often in the field, when I needed something reliable in a pinch, I got out the wired cable release. Problem is the cable gets in the way and is too short. Vello rocks!

(Continued from before...) We finally received yet another unit which Vello had B&H send us, and it is also defective. We wanted TWO of these and bought four and yet we were not able to receive two which work like they should. (read our other reviews for more details) Vello's fault for not communicating situation properly with B&H.

I used this for self portraits in different farm locations. It worked from 20 feet away to 50 yards away without any problems. Great remote trigger.

Works better than expected.

Can the hot shoe unit be rotated for different photographer locations? Also, how far does it stick out over the lens? (Will sometimes use it with fisheye lenses)
Asked by: Bill
Unfortunately Vello Wireless ShutterBoss 4.0 Remote Timer and Trigger for Select Sony Multi-Terminal Cameras hot shoe cannot be rotated. The receiver is 3.3 inches long. I would recommend placing a ruler over the hot shoe of your camera and then you can see where 3.3 inches is and it will give you an idea of how far it stick out over the front of the camera.

When using long exposure mode, the on/off button must be pressed to start the exposure. At the end of the set time, does the button need to be pressed agin to stop the exposure or does it automatically stop?
Asked by: Frederick
If the Vello Wireless ShutterBoss 4.0 Remote Timer and Trigger for Select Sony Multi-Terminal Cameras is set to Bulb mode, then you would need to press again to end the exposure. If set for a long exposure time, the exposure will automatically be stopped at the end of that set time without the need to press anything.

can it control trigger multiple cameras simultaneously? (a7R2 & a7R3)
Asked by: Evan
Yes, the Vello Wireless Shutterboss 4.0 can trigger multiple cameras - in this case, both the A7RII and A7RIII can be triggered. However, each camera will need its own receiver. Please see the manual (under "Setting the Smart Code") in order to pair the second receiver with the transmitter in use.
