question

In interval mode set to take a photo every so many minutes (assume the correct camera and connection), can you set it to come on in the morning and go off at night to not record during those down times?
Asked by: wayne f.
The ShutterBoss allows you to delay the start time for the sequence for up to 99 hrs, 59 minutes and 59 seconds in 1 second intervals. Only one sequence can be programmed at a time so it cannot stop and start again. It will run the programmed sequence and stop.

question

Vello Wireless Shutterboss - RCW-N2 I have a Nikon D90 with a 10 - 20mm wide angle lens attached. I've tried numerous channels, but the remote will not trigger the shutter. I like others have had to connect the receiver to the GPS port. Its worked in the past with other lenses, so could it be the wide angle lens causing problems?Is there an adapter I'm supposed to have for it to work properly?
Asked by: Michael
The lens will not affect the ability of the ShutterBoss to fire the camera. With the ShutterBoss disconnected from the camera, make sure the camera and lens combination can be fired from the shutter button of the D90. Once you establish that the lens works on the camera, put the lens and camera into manual focus and try to fire it with the ShutterBoss. If it does fire, then your lens was not achieving focus. Put the lens and camera back into auto focus and try again. The lens needs to achieve focus in order to fire. If that is not the problem, make sure the cable is seated properly in the D90. The Nikon DC-2 connection can be tricky. If these tips do not help contact askbh@<a href= http://bhphoto.com target= _blank >bhphoto.com</a> for more detailed troubleshooting.

question

I can't get my remote to work with my D7100,the transmitter seems to be communicating with the receiver ,the light turn red and green but nothing is happening,I have both set at CH2,why isn't it working ?
Asked by: Anonymous
My remote works well so I can only suggest some things to check out. Be sure that the cable from the hot shoe unit is securely plugged into both the accessory terminal ( #17 in the D7100 manual illustration) and the side of the hot shoe unit. I once had trouble getting it to work during a night shoot and then realized the cable was not plugged into the side of the hot shoe unit. I use Ch 01 for both units. Additionally, do not put the batteries into the two components until you are going to use it and then take them right out. I found that the components often turned on inside my camera case from random bumping of other objects and this drained the batteries enough to give a weak signal that would not fully trigger the camera. Lastly, I have the Remote control mode (ML-L3) in the camera menu turned off. I don't know if having that option turned on blocks the Vello unit from triggering the camera, but it may be a possibility. I wish you luck!
