Vello RC-C1II overview

  • 1Description

The ShutterBoss II Timer Remote Switch for Canon with Sub Mini Connection from Vello is a remote shutter release that provides photographers with enhanced levels of exposure control. Featuring specialized functionality such as continuous shooting, self-timer, long time exposures, and interval shooting, the ShutterBoss II is a huge asset to keep in your camera bag. This particular ShutterBoss is compatible with cameras that have a sub-mini connection, for example: Canon EOS Digital Rebels and 70D, G3 X, G5 X, Contax N and 645, Pentax K series, Sigma SD, and Samsung GX series.

With the ShutterBoss you can set timer delays, exposure times and intervals up to 99 hours, 59 minutes, 59 seconds in one-second increments. You can also select from 1 to 399 continuous shots or set the device to take an unlimited number of photos. Since you can set exposures without touching the camera you will capture clear, blur-free images. This remote has a 4-line backlit LCD status display for easy viewing of timer and exposure settings. The backlight can be locked to remain on when shooting in low light conditions.

The ShutterBoss is great for time lapse series of blooming flowers, sunsets or the night sky. It can also function without batteries as a simple manual remote shutter release. Simply establish the camera's settings and push the remote's shutter button halfway to focus and fully to shoot. In bulb mode, slide the shutter release button forward to lock and the shutter will stay open until you release it. 

The ShutterBoss II has added two features that will offer easier control over the remote's settings. First is a Power Off option which gives you the ability to power down the remote to conserve battery life and also a Reset option allows the ShutterBoss' settings to be completely reset to default settings with just the hold of two buttons. A default reset is a time-saver to avoid changing each setting individually. 

Whether it's for simple shutter release, extended self-timer options, continuous shooting, long exposures, or time-lapse shooting, the ShutterBoss II Remote puts creative camera control in the palm of your hand.

    Vello RC-C1II reviews

    ShutterBoss II Timer Remote Switch for Canon with Sub Mini Connection is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 120.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quirky, but it works, after a fashion... Bought this for use with my Canon G1X MkII, to do time lapse photography. To turn the device on or off requires removing the batteries, but I don't use it that often, so that hasn't been a hassle. The biggest problem with the tool has to do with the camera, but isn't obvious - you can't take RAW images every second if your camera can't process them. For instance, I set the intervalometer for 240 shots at 1-sec intervals, but the camera only took 179 shots. Since there is no feedback, the problem wasn't discovered until after the shoot. It's about what you would expect for this price point. Biggest issue with the product is the poor build quality overall.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Vello_intrest Upon receiving this ShutterBoss II my fist thought was, the cable seems a bit heavy and stiff. I would have been better satisfied with more flex and lighter weight in the cable. It seems as though one should be very carful not to wiggle the cable when in use; it may translate to camera shake. I think setting the timer, setting the ShutterBoss aside and then setting up the camera for the shoot may be the better process (complete hands off approach). I'm planning for it's use throughout this 2017 summer. Seems easy enough to program. I can not recommend OR not recommend this product until I put it to use in a few months, but for now I have to pick one.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wathc out, This model will just Die on you! I bought this item to do some time lapse and astro photography with. And at first it worked great, it worked well and it was very easy to use. Then I tried to use at again some time later and the unit would fire during the wrong time. And the wrong number of exposures. After pulling my hair out I realized that it was the unit and not my ability to use it. So yes it does work, but it will without warning crash and not function correctly. My suggestion is buy a more expensive model.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it's supposed to do. I use this remote for astrophotography. It's fairly simple to set up and it works fine. There were only two issues I have with it. First, to set the interval time between shots, you have to add the exposure time to your interval time. The manual does say to set your interval time greater than your exposure time. If you're taking a 15 sec exposure and you want a 3 sec interval between shot, then you have to set the interval to 18 sec. It will count 3 sec and then start the next photo. Not a big deal once you understand. Second, the cord isn't that long. If you have a tall tripod, I recommend using a little Velcro to secure the remote to the tripod to prevent swinging if you don't want to hold it all the time. No one wants ANY movement on a long exposure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, great value I purchased this intervalometer because I wanted to start taking time lapse video with my DSLR. I am a beginner and this thing was easy to use and worked on my first try with my D-60. I've never used one of these before and the instruction book was very helpful. One note, the first setting (timer) is the delay from when you want the sequence to start. That was the only confusing part in the beginning. You can also use it as a manual remote trigger to take pictures when using a tripod in lieu of pushing down the normal button to minimize disturbances when activating the camera for a picture. It can also serve as a timer that you can set beyond the camera's internal 10 sec delay.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from This Device Will Expire This is a great product... at first. It's easy to learn and easy to use. It gets the job done,.. until its life is done. Unfortunately, the Shutterboss has a short lifespan of less than two years. Fortunately, it doesn't drain batteries, so you will likely only need to use one pair throughout its life - unless of course you forget to remove the batteries after use. To turn the Shutterboss on and off you literally have to insert and remove the batteries. There is no power button (a standard feature on most electronic photography gizmos for years). This flaw requires careful battery placement in your camera bag so the batteries do not go missing. Use of the Shutterboss is very simple, and after you have referred to the handy manual to set the device up several times you get the hang of it. The Shutterboss makes time-lapse photography, stop-motion animation, and long-exposure photography a piece of cake. It has a seemingly nice design, similar to that of a television remote, making it easy to operate and store in your bag. Sadly, the biggest flaw with the Shutterboss is the one that forces me to remain honest and tell you not to purchase the product. After less than two years, and striking at complete random, the Shutterboss will simply stop functioning. It will give you the impression that it works until you attempt to release the camera's shutter via the Shutterboss. The device lights up, can be programmed, and even beeps as usual, but it will randomly stop releasing the camera's shutter, making the product completely useless (for its intended purpose, at least). According to Vello's customer service email, the cable has expired and nothing can be done. That's correct. The Vello Shutterboss has an expiration date and when it reaches that date and stops functioning it's game over. Vello will not repair, refund, or exchange the product (most likely because this would bankrupt the company due to all the repairs/refunds/exchanges they would be giving for their faulty products). The Vello Shutterboss is a wolf in sheep's clothing. The company is seemingly more concerned with making a pretty penny through suckering in amateur photographers/videographers, rather than creating quality products that result in quality images. Basically, your best option is to look elsewhere and find a product that will allow you to progress with your work, rather than set your work and your bank account back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect and cost effective. 4.5 stars for one tiny detail. Does everything it's supposed to do. If I had one complaint it would be that it doesn't stay on a setting location after setting it. For example, if I set it to 13 sec exposure, take a shot and decide I need to +/- my exposure, you have to click it back over to the right to get back to sec column. Can't tell you how many times I've set it to 99 hours by accident. : ) It's a picky thing to complain about, sure, but it would make the work flow a little tighter in the heat of the moment. But I like it regardless and would hate to not have it.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from No Mirror Lock Up FYI.... Can't use mirror lock up when setting timed intervals on my 70D. It's either use live view (battery drain)or don't use mirror lock (increased vibration) to get continuos interval shots. Wanted to use primarily for time lapse. Probably returning
