Vello RC-N1II overview

  • 1Description

The ShutterBoss II Timer Remote Switch for Nikon with 10-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 10-pin connection, for example: Nikon D4, D3, and D800 series, Fuji S3 and the Kodak DCS-14N.

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-N1II reviews

    ShutterBoss II Timer Remote Switch for Nikon with 10-Pin Connection is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 113.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure it works with my Nikon D850? The Vello Shutterboss II looks good and is exactly as described. I want to look forward to using it. However, I have not been able to secure it or attach it properly to my Nikon D850. The 10-pins go in a bit into the connector on the camera body, but they do not go in that deep. Also, I can't get the metal screw on the Shuterboss to screw into the camera. Perhaps I am just not getting it? Has anyone else experienced this? Am I doing something wrong, or is it possible that it is not compatible with the Nikon D850 (even though it is the 10-pin, which the D850 is also). Let me know. For now, I give it three stars, as I have not actually used it with the camera yet.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Set Button Problem the First Time I Used it The manual was very easy to follow, and the remote switch was very easy to set up. I took about 3 or 4 long exposures and was quite pleased with the performance of the Vello ShutterBos II. Then the set button dropped beneath the housing when I tried to set it again. The remote could still be set, but I was worried it would stop working. I tried to get the set button to go back into place without success. I emailed the company but never got a reply. I have now ordered the Nikon remote switch even though it is quite a bit more expensive. I just don't trust that the Vello won't stop working when I need it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Vibration Reduction for D800E I use the Version II to activate the shutter in mirror-up mode for the Nikon D800E. This is a big help, since it avoids camera shake on a high-resolution image. I don't touch the camera during the shutter activation process. This appears to make a big difference in the clarity of the final result. I gave it 5 stars due to the pricing and features vs. the Nikon equivalent. It appears to be a worthwhile accessory for the Nikon D800E camera system, which, due to the high-resolution sensor, makes vibration reduction important.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quality issue I purchased this product to do shots > 30 secs in length using ND filters. My first one lasted 10 months and Vello was kind enough to replace it. Although that didn't help when I was in the dark trying to get it to work for some star shots. The second remote lasted 8 months. At that point it became sporadic and failed more often then not. Vello would not replace this one. That is two remotes is less then two years. For those that have already judged, I take very good care of my equipment. The remotes were never dropped in water, caught in a door, etc.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great features..Not very durable I've had this unit for about 2 years and used it intermittently for long exposure and interval shooting. It worked very well the few times I used it. Just recently decided to use it more frequently to reduce camera movement caused by pushing the shutter. Found that it worked only intermittently causing me to miss some great shots. Finally determined that the cable connection to the unit has been damaged. Not sure what caused it but I don't believe it was excessive use or mishandling.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I Regretted Buying This ... Buy The Nikon MC-36A I went through two of these Vello timers. The first one became inoperable after about a year. The warranty replacement failed in exactly the same way. The SHUTTER button would stop working as would the TIMER START/STOP button. The second unit failed while I was in NYC, thousand of miles from home. Luckily, B&H Photo was nearby. I pointed out to a manager the problems I had with the product and he indicated the he was going to bring this up with Vello. Two failures is more than enough for me. I was lucky to be close to B&H to buy a different replacement product. If I wasn't, I would have missed the opportunity to take once in a lifetime photo's. The Nikon MC-36A may seem expensive but in my opinion, is built to a much higher standard than the Vello ShutterBoss. You know what is expensive? Paying for airfare and hotel to travel to a far away location and having a $49 device ruin your ability to take photos. Thats penny wise and pound foolish.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and Simple to Use This timer was recommended to me by a well known photographer who uses the same camera I have, a Nikon D800. I knew it would be a good piece of equipment and it is. Very intuitive and therefore once you get the gist of the modes you can easily figure out the rest without reading the instructions. Mainly I use this for shutter speeds above 30 seconds since my camera's built-in intervalometer does pretty much everything else this timer does. Can anyone tell me with all of our current technology and cameras getting smarter and smarter, even the most expensive cameras don't have shutter speeds slower than 30 seconds?

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great set of features. Poor quality, won't last. In theory this should be a great remote; it has a strong set of features and is easy to use. Unfortunately, this unit stopped triggering the shutter just past the warranty expiration period. I engaged the company and they are not interested in standing by their product. Look for alternate solutions if you want a remote to last beyond the 1 year warranty period.
