Vello RS-N1II overview

  • 1Description

Whether you are shooting in the studio or outdoors, the Vello RS-N1II Wired Remote Switch provides photographers using select Nikon cameras with a 10-pin connection with a simple way to control exposures and an easy-to-use tool to create more "keepers". The device is larger and more comfortable to use than many other remote devices, with a thick, sturdy cord.

The RS-N1II is compatible with autofocusing, continuous shooting or single image capture, and long exposures. It will autofocus on a half press of the button and trigger the shutter with a full press. Also, users can press the button and slide it forward to lock it for long exposures. Since you can trigger exposures without touching the camera, you will capture sharp, blur-free images. Additionally, the unit does not require batteries as it draws its power from the camera, making it an extremely useful tool to keep in your studio or gear bag.

    Vello RS-N1II reviews

    RS-N1II Wired Remote Switch for Select Nikon 10-Pin Cameras is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 156.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable Wired Remote Shutter Release Simple to use on the D800e. Just plug it in and it works in place of the camera shutter button. (the camera's button also works at the same time) The wired remote uses the same half-push as the camera for focusing only; press the button all the way to fire the shutter. The button can be locked down for long exposures in B mode. (One must pay attention when pushing the button, to NOT lock it down by accident. This is the same with every wired remote shutter release I own. Once familiar with the remote, it is not a problem.) The 10-pin plug is a perfect fit and the threaded locking ring threads smoothly into the camera 10-pin socket.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from nikon v.s vello remote switch review I bought both the MC30A and Vello RS-N1II Wired Remote Switch. Both are very usable. The nikon has a thumb trigger with a long travel length while the vello has a side push button with a very short travel, Both have a positive feedback at the focus only location. I took apart both. Then Nikon has 2 microswitches mounted on a printed circuit board activated by a metal shaft with two coil springs. The cable has a full compliment of wires for all the pin locations- most of which are capped with shrink tubing. The vello has 3 leaf springs that are pushed by the button. It is very simple and looks more like a toy when compared to the nikon. The cable only has 3 wires. The nikon has a better camera connector. It has a huge collet that is easy to install on the camera and has arrows to show the mating position. The vello is very fiddly to screw on the camera and has no arrows. The nikon is by far the better made of the two but the price difference is huge. $8 v.s.$65 Which one you get depends on how often you use it. Both are very usable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good cheap alternative. I got this remote to use with my Nikon d800. My primary reason for getting this remote was for performing long exposure photography and minimizing camera shake when pressing the button. I saw no reason to spend more money to perform such a simple task. It is very easy to use. Just screw it in and press the button. Slide your thumb forward to lock it in bulb setting for exposures greater than 30 seconds. The greatest thing about this remote is you don't really care if you lose it because you could buy 10 more for the price of one of Nikon's remotes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inexpensive, Works This release works very well with a caveat. Not as durable as the Nikon but a tenth the price. I own three for my various camera bags. I find the sliding lock switch to be the weak point; my first unit became unreliable after 6 months use due to the slide switch getting slightly stuck between on and off. The solution is to put a piece of clear cellophane tape over the slide to semi-permanently keep it in the unlock position, where you have to hold the button down for the entire exposure. Anytime you need to, slide your fingernail over the tape seam and you can then use the lock button for very long time exposures. Re-tape the next day. Doing this my releases are very reliable over the long term. Cheap enough to have extras in reserve and still save money.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Everything is working fine - the only question is durability I just started using this remote and it is working exactly as it should. I'll admit that it is a bit of a tight squeeze getting it attached to the camera, but that is more an issue with Nikon -- I don't know why they placed the attach point in such a small corner near the lens mount. Surely they could have placed it on the side of the camera. But, with a little trial and error and getting a routing going the remote fits nicely and securely when it's tightened with the screw. I have other Nikon remotes, and it's hard to see a big difference in build quality. Four stars for now, five if it lasts a decent amount of time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, Functional Remote Cheaper than the Nikon equivalent, and works just as well. The only minor issue has to do with the locking feature, (for bulb exposures), which engages a little too easily. When the release is depressed, it's easy to inadvertently engage the lock by sliding your thumb. I wish there were a little more friction so it wouldn't slide as easily as it does. Still, like most Vello products, I've found it to be a reasonable substitute for original manufacturer equipment, that is just as durable, effective, and lower priced.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from WORTH IT This item is well worth the $$. Works as advertised. The lock slider seems to be a bit too easy to activate, but once aware of this, you can watch for it. The one issue I did notice was that my battery seemed to run down awfully fast while unit in use. Not sure if it is the unit or that the camera uses more battery when this is connected. I was only able to get about 30 shots of my 30 second exposures. When I press the button on the camera I get more shots before the battery poops out....

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works! I use this for macro and long exposure photography mostly. My first one lasted a year or more and then just stopped working on a ski trip. Took it apart to see if I could fix it, but nothing looked broken. I decided that for the price I would buy two more. Now I have one for each camera bag. Definitely worth buying because of the cost, but if it is critical equipment maybe consider buying the substantially more expensive Nikon version.
