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.

Vello ShutterBoss II Reviews

Simple control, easy to use

By Jeff
Rated 5 out of 5

I got this so I wouldn't need to stoop and squint to use the camera menus when it's on the tripod in the dark. Much easier to hang this from the tripod (I made a little wire hook attached to the cord) and operate it from there or handheld, plus not disturb the camera positioning. Nice that it also works as a remote release even without powering it on.

Works great

The display on my last intervelometer became too dim to read. I've just gotten this one and it works great. I like the ability to turn it off.

This is the version for mirrorless Canon. Seems to work just as well as the DSLR version I owned previously. I gave the earlier one to a friend and she very quickly was able to operate it as desired. I take that as a confirmation that the ShutterBoss is intuitively obvious to run. At night I want the ShutterBoss close to my camera and easy to see/find. Here's a little hack I've developed. I purchased a pack of the Niteize rubber twist ties (in the yellow-glow color). I use one twist tie to coil the cable so it extends only 9 inches from device to its connector. I form the second twist tie into a S-hook with one side hooked to cable coil on the bundled cable loops and the other on the camera body's strap (sans neck strap). The result is that the ShutterBoss hangs close to the camera and is easily reached when needed, but does not disturb the lens/body during long exposures.

In testing it works as advertised. I hope to get out in the next few days and use it for taking some Milky Way images. Just need Mother Nature to cooperate and clear the night sky.

I bought this timer for use with my Canon Ra for astrophotography. Normally i take multiple long exposures and then stack them. It works well and it is accurate. I have had it only for a few weeks now, that is why i give 4 stars, as i still have to check its endurance. Very pleased so far. Setting exposure times and intervals is very easy.

Awesome Tool!

question

What is new in version 2?
Asked by: John
According to Vello, there are two new additions with the Shutterboss II over the original model. A power off option has been added to simply help conserve battery life. The other option is a reset back to factory settings so that each setting does not need to be reset individually.

I purchased a Shutterboss a year ago for my 7D. The cable connection to the Canon socket was terrible - it was loose and only connected 20% of the time - so I returned it (thank you B&H) Is this a new and improved version?

Hi Barton! The short answer is no. You need the one that says, 'Vello ShutterBoss II Timer Remote Switch for Canon with Sub Mini Connection'. That one will work with your T4i. Hope that helps!
