The ShutterBoss II Timer Remote Switch for Canon with 3-Pin 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 3-pin connection, including Canon EOS 5D, 6D, 7D, and 1D series DSLRS, and select mirrorless cameras.
With the ShutterBoss you can set timer delays, exposure times, and intervals up to 99 hours, 59 minutes, and 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 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. Second is a reset option that allows the ShutterBoss settings to be reset to default settings with just the hold of two buttons. A default reset is a time-saver when you want 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.
