    Vello RCW-N2 Reviews

    Wireless ShutterBoss Timer Remote (Nikon DC-2 Connection) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 87.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Boss of Remote shutters This is a great wireless Remote trigger that has a comprehensive software that gives you endless controls over your shutter release. This allows my creative freedom to jump to many new ideas for projects thanks to the options and possibilities that this remote gives me. Also, the fact that you could mount the receiver else where incase you need the hot shoe for flash and if you get a new camera, then all you have to do is buy the adapter cable that works with the new camera and your all set to go. The only thing that worries me is that it is made cheaply and the plastic on the remote does not feel solid. Overall, though the benefits outweigh the cons.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shutterboss works great!! I take a lot of pictures of the weather. I love to go out at night when a thunderstorm is approaching and photo lightning. The wireless shutterboss gives me mobility while shooting. I also use the wireless shutterboss so that I can be in some of my own pictures. On vacation it was awesome. We took family photos without having to ask someone to take the shot and take a chance on them dropping the camera or messing the photo up. It is also great for time lapse photography. I really haven't found anything that isn't so great about it. It works for what I need to do with it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does a great job! The only pain with this product was that the original batteries were dead, so I had to add to the purchase $ by buying a whole new set. (Hence 4 stars and not 5). That said, it does all it says it will do and does it very well. Excellent range: with the camera on a tripod, I crossed the room I turned my back and fired the transmitter in my pocket. No problem, it worked! Lightweight and compact. Build could be a little sturdier. I also know that if I change cameras or add a different one to my bag, this product will work with just buying another cable to match the different camera. That is smart because it means the consumer will not be shelling out for a new product as he/she changes gear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool for slow shutters If you need exposures longer than 30 seconds or you want to do time lapse photography... this is a MUST! It is also quite good at just being a remote shutter that has an incredible range and you don't even have to point it at the camera. My only request for improvement is the backlight. It's very weak and a bit tricky to turn on. I'm sure the trade off is in battery life, but since the batteries last a ridiculous amount of time anyway... just use good led backlighting please! After all, isn't this tool used mostly in dim lighting?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vello Wireless ShutterBoss The shutterboss operates exactly as advertised. It has shutter control features that may be more than is required for a simple remote trigger, but if the ability to control the shutter and remotely setup timed sequences are important, this is the device for you. Not listed in the capabilities is the fact that the unit can also be operated in a wired mode by connecting a control wire (included) between the remote trigger and the remote receiver. Nice Unit - Works as advertised.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is all I need to take great picture With this remote I can take pictures at 2am while I am sleeping. Also I leave my camera, some food in front of it and just walk away, soon some wonderful creatures are inches in front of the lense, ready for shot. Taking picture of myself was never easier, I do not have to be right in front of the camera, because remote is working from any angle. To create gif picture or nice sunset in slow motion is so simple and easy to do. There is only one thing that could be improved, having option to take more than 99 pictures in one session, this would enable me to to create longer sunst or blooming flower with smooth motion and longer time. This is the best remote shutter release I ever had.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vello Wireless Shutterboss The instructions do not tell you to turn off the Automatic Focus on the Nikon 3100. If you don't, then the program to take multiple shots does not work well because the first signal to the Nikon attempts to focus, the next signal then takes a picture. If you turn off lens auto focus, then the Vello works flawlessly. I like this gadget for HDR photography or when I want to trigger the camera remotely. Excellent purchase!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I use this device for remote triggering and for creating time lapse videos. The ShutterBoss is easy to learn, dependable and a great tool to have. My Nikon D7100 has a built in intervalometer, but the Shutterboss is much better. Easier to take shots over longer periods of time and at greater intervals. The remote works very well too. No problem at over 100 feet so far. I'm really glad I decided to purchase it.
