Vello's Wireless ShutterBoss Timer Remote (Sony Alpha Connection) doesn't just trip your shutter wirelessly. It's also equipped to handle a long list of timer functions: self-timer, interval timer, long exposure timer, as well as controlling the number of continuous shutter releases. It works with a vast array of different cameras--just swap out the camera release cable for the correct camera. The transmitter works at distances up to 250' (80 m) on any one of 99 channels over a reliable 2.4GHz frequency.

Timer delays, exposure times, and intervals can be set for up to 99 hours, 59 minutes, 59 seconds, in one-second increments. You can also choose anywhere from 1 to 99 continuous shots or you can set the ShutterBoss to take an unlimited number of photos. The receiver uses a CR2 lithium battery, and the transmitter uses 2x AAA batteries, which can last up to 4 years on standby.

    Vello RCW-S1 reviews

    Wireless ShutterBoss Timer Remote (Sony Alpha Connection) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 35.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have used this product extensively since I have purchased it and it has worked without fail, even over longer distances than advertised. Thus far I have used it on manual settings as well as automated time lapse settings and it has functioned as designed. Very good piece of equipment. The only negatives I can include are that the remote felt cheap but has turned out to be fairly rugged (having already dropped it a couple of times) and that the battery utilized for the camera mount is not a standard battery.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy Got this remote for my a77. It is by far one of the most simple yet at the same time most versatile remote i have used. It just took me 5 minutes to get used to it. Great for outdoors, self portrait, time lapse photography. Keep in mind at first it appears it can only click 99 pics at a stretch, but if you go to 'timer controls' and set the number to -- , you can click unlimited photos until your batteries or memory runs out. Might appear to be lightly built but dropped it a couple of times and its still going good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Remote I love this remote it makes things so much easier when trying to take bulb shots espeacially the timer on the remote no more playing with my phone to time the shots just hit the button to makie it light up in the dark and theres the exposure time, also scince its wireless I dont need to worry about tripping over the 30ft cable from my wired remote, one thing is no on off switch but i can live with that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Decision I use my a55 primarily for creative/unconventional videography, and I bought the ShutterBoss recently to save me hours in creating a recent stop-motion video. It was worth every penny. I'm looking forward to using the timing functions to create some interesting time-lapse videos in the near future. It's also fantastic if you want to do light painting or other bulb exposures.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works pretty well but could be better I used this product to take pictures of stars and the northern lights. I used it with the remote not attached directly to the camera. You must set it inside where you have a lot of light because the light only stays on 3 seconds. It was hard to get used to how to set it at first. There is one whole way of setting it that there are no instructions for and it doesn't make any sense why it is there. Once set it performs like it is supposed to although not always accurately. All of my pictures were set for 30 second exposures but some came back with metadata saying they were 29 seconds or as little as 13 seconds.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Complete remote but a blit flimsy I own already a wireless remote that is smaller and easier to use. This remote does pack a lot of features. I have used it only verly little. The setup and ussage with the buttons is not very natural. The button reaction time is kind of slow and soft. I will only use this for true timelaps (with the maual at hand) or to trigger my 2nd body when my prime remote is in use. For generic wireless remote triggering it is too big for my liking and probably almost impossible to operate with gloves

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best accessory for my Sony A77 I use it to trigger the shutter remotely while placing the camera for close-up shots of bird at the feeders, ponds, etc. while I stand 50 feet or more away waiting for the action. This way not being in close proximity does not spook the birds or having to rely on a long telephoto lens for the same effect. Fortunately the receiver does not interfere with the pop up flash on the camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best choice for sony alpha cameras A great remote with tons of settings, this is a must have if you take any kind of long exposure photos. Love the hotshoe clip.
