Gets along fine with my Olympus OM-D EM1 Mk2. I had tried another brand from Amazon and had to send it back. Spoke to the representative here at B&H and he steered me to just the right product. Already got some outstanding shots of hummingbirds with my tripod and the Vello FreeWave Plus II. Great product and great service!

Great for Wildlife Photography

I placed my D500 with the remote receiver a few feet from our hummingbird feeders. I was able to get stunning photos of our hummers using the remote transmitter indoors and snapping pics when the birds arrive. Comes with cables for 10 pin or USB connection. Excellent value and it seems well built. Easy AAA battery power.

Just what I ordered

I recently purchased aCanon 6D and a canon 90d to replace an old reliable 60d. I had an older Vello free wave that worked like a charm with the 60d but is incompatible with the new cameras. This free wave does the trick. If you are shooting with a tripod and/or at night this is a must. We'll worth the investment and B&H is terrific to do business with.

Not quite 100%

Happy with the product except I wish there was a slot to attach a cord like on some of the past models.

question

I bought one and tested it working with Canon 5D III. The problem is the cover of the remote controller is too tight. I can's open it. I need to get helper to open it. Is there a way to make it easier to open it?
Asked by: Charming
Place the remote controller face down and turned so that the cover would slide off away from you. Then press down on the cover using your two thumbs to apply a bit of pressure while pushing forward to slide off. The two thumbs method may make it easier to remove the cover.

Will this work with a Kirk L-Bracket on a Canon 5DmkIII attached?
Asked by: Anonymous
You would still be able to use this Vello remote on a Canon 5D Mark III with a Kirk L-Bracket attached. The bracket would allow access to the ports on the side of the camera.

question

I bought the Vello Freewave Plus for my Canon 6D Mark II and am unable to get it to fire wireless. It works fine with the cable, though. Any advice or suggestions for troubleshooting?
Asked by: Lauren
Make sure the pin switches in the transmitter and receiver are set identically otherwise they will not work. Other operation is here. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/lit_files/259618.pdf . You can contact the manufacturer if still not working.
