Vello RC-N2II overview

  • 1Description

The ShutterBoss II Timer Remote Switch for Nikon with DC2 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 DC2 connection, for example: Nikon D750, D610, D7200 and D7500 DSLRs.

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-N2II reviews

    ShutterBoss II Timer Remote Switch for Nikon with DC2 Connection is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 158.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable Timer I use this for 4K time lapse and take it with me everywhere my D3300 goes. It's light weight, durable, easy to use, good battery performance, and gets the job done. However, after 9 months of very heavy use the Shutterboss failed out in the field. Most likely due to a short in the wire cable. Contacted the company via email. They responded in 2 days, and arrangements were made to return the product. In about 2 weeks a brand new Shutterboss was at my door. Nevertheless, a solid company that honors their warranty. As long as Nikon fails to put a intervalometer in their D3300 series I'll rely on the Sutterbos II.
    Date published: 2015-09-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light Painting & 4K Time Lapse I use the Sutterboss VII for mostly 4K time lapse. And, it works great for timed long exposures while light painting. It allows me to change shutter speed while in time lapse, making sunset transitions more consistent. And, it gets me consistent exposure times for light painting. Not so great is the limit on 399 time lapse shots, with unlimited shots thereafter. It would be nice to program 500, 720, or 1200 shots. Nevertheless, it's a essential tool for the long exposure night shooter who also does time lapse. 4K DSLR time lapse is becoming popular, and this tool is a essential part of getting the images.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential tool For the past 5 months, this has been used on every photo shoot. It has super long battery life, can extend shutter speed beyond 30 seconds with timer while doing long exposure time lapse, and I can change the aperture or shutter speed between interval shots. Works great with D3200, D3300, and D7100. I've shot tens of thousand time lapse shots with this using the same battery. It's light weight, and easy to set up. Well designed product, no down sides to having one of these in your kit. For cameras without a built in intervalometer, this is essential.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and Intuitive I use the Shutterboss mostly for night photography. No doubt I will find more uses as time passes. Nikon's small coin-cell remote will let you down. Too far, too bright, wrong angle, etc. There was always something preventing a remote triggering of my camera. The Shutterboss outperforms small wireless units by permitting a custom delay well beyond the limits of my Nikon's firmware. Now I have time to set the camera and then climb out to precarious rock outcroppings before the shutter activates. The one thing I wish was included was an ON/OFF switch. Perhaps it's best just to yank out the batteries anyway.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job, takes some getting used to This remote gets the job done, is affordable and is easier to use for timelapse shots than my D7100's menus. I like how the release button works for tripping the camera shutter even when the Shutterboss's power is turned off. A big downside for me is how easy it is to accidentally press the right arrow on the shutterboss when trying to press the up arrow. This happens all the time for me when setting up a timelapse, and my hands are not big either. The only way I can use it is with my smallest finger pointed vertically and pressing very carefully. I have no trouble at all with the selection arrows on my D7100, and they are even smaller. For the price, it's hard to complain too much about the Shutterboss, but I can only give it 3 stars.
    Date published: 2015-01-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a Boss This is a perfect intervalometer for the price. It works flawlessly and it is a workhorse for how long the battery life is supposed to last. The fact that you can do an infinite amount of shots for something at this price is great. I didn't have to get an expensive piece of equipment for a cheap DSLR. If you are looking to do any type of timelapse photography, this is a must. I has an interval function, timed function, exposure functions, shot count. The only thing that it is missing is a GPS driven distance traveled function for hyper timelaspe in situations where you might rig your camera to a car or moving object. I know that would be asking too much, so yest this is still perfect for what it is.
    Date published: 2014-12-15
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Delicate cable I've owned this remote for about a year, on my last trip the remote stopped triggering my shutter. If I hold the cable tight - near the actual remote - the shutter will work, which tells me the wire broke inside the cable. Anyway, the overall quality is weak in my opinion. The buttons are tricky to use, and when you're fingers a cold (which is most of the time early mornings or late nights), you're going to find yourself a little annoyed at this thing. Sure, once it's all set, it does what it's supposed to, but I find that this is a poor execution of an intervalometer.
    Date published: 2016-12-19
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from remote release I ordered this remote to be able to do long timed exposures. Though I have not had the time to try this in the field it performed well in the few test shots I did take to insure compatibility. I'm using this on a Nikon D3300. Setting up the time intervals was easy and quick. There is no off switch on the unit but removing the batteries when the unit will be stored more than used is probably a good idea anyway. The unit functions without batteries as a manual remote, good for bulb exposure setting. I'm very pleased with the unit.
