Wireless Shutter Release
Wirelessly trigger a camera and take single or continuous shots. This is a simple way to capture images without having to touch the camera. This freedom is useful for photographing wildlife or for macro photography, and for long exposures where it is necessary to eliminate any chance of camera shake.
Wired Shutter Release
In addition to wireless triggering, the camera can be triggered manually by pressing the button on the receiver unit
Single and Continuous Shooting Modes
Capture images individually or shoot in bursts
Four-Second Delay
The four second delay function makes it possible to step into the frame when shooting selfies or group portraits. it is also useful in macro photography when trying to eliminate vibrations caused by mirror movement in a DSLR
Bulb Mode
Use Bulb mode to take long-exposure photos by setting the camera to bulb mode and use the remote to open and close the camera's shutter. This mode is ideal for shooting star-trails and blurring rivers and waterfalls
16 Wireless Channels
Sixteen available wireless channels enable setting the transmitter and receiver to operate on individually selectable channels in areas with high digital interference
Two Remote Shutter Release Cables
The two included Remote Shutter Release Cables include a cable with a Canon 3-pin connector plus a cable with a mini-phono connector for compatibility with select Canon cameras and additional camera bodies with a 3.5 mm mini-phono remote release connection. Please consult the camera user manual for the individual camera being used.

Vello FreeWave Plus Reviews

Cheap and easy to use

By Robert
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2023-01-31

I was originally looking at getting a wired trigger form my new XH2 but found this. I bought it because it was cheaper and wireless. Teh hardest part was threading the lanyard to the unit and it is a bit plasticky, hence 4 stars. As far as function, you can't go wrong! Plug it in the camera, and release with the remote - no wire. You have other functions as well as a nice addition. I was pleasantly surprised and would buy again.

Just something...

The batteries that come with this didn't work. The people at bh changed my batteries 3 times but none of them worked. I assume it's a manufacturer's problem. Just buy batteries separately.

An Outstanding Quality and Dependable Remote Shutter Control

This unit is amazing, never misses a beat. It is compact, light, and is so reliable. I had an older version of the Vello shutter release it is would occasionally fail to fire. This unit never fails. It is a great buy. You won't be disappointed.

Works good for single shot

Works good for single shots, would not over ride camera settings for multiple shots or bulb. Single shots was what I was looking for any way. One sour not batteries that came with it where dead.

Awesome

It works with my Nikon d850! I'm thrilled because the app was so slow and glitchy but this clicks the shutter instantly as many times as I want and I can click it from my pocket or behind my back! Looking forward to much smoother family pictures from now on!

Works great, does everything it's supposed to. Easy to use.

Flawless operation

I bought this version to replace my original Vello. It's much more versatile than the Canon wired or wireless remotes. It operated flawlessly in shooting stars and on a remote camera shooting wide angle from my tripod while I was hand holding my Zoom lens on a second camera.

It depends on the camera. Some allow you to assign the shutter button to start and stop video recording. If your camera does than this remote will work to stop and start video recording.
