Vello FreeWave Wireless Remote Shutter Release Kit (Select Canon/Olympus/Pentax)
Key Features
  • 16 Million Possible Channels
  • Operates on Radio Frequencies (RF)
  • Direct Line of Sight Not Required
  • Operating Range up to 320' (100 m)
Whether capturing images in the studio or on location, the Vello FreeWave Wireless Remote Shutter Release Kit (Canon/Olympus/Pentax) from B&H Photo adds flexibility and versatility to your shooting style. Photography unplugged - shooters can interact with a model, view the scene or set from alternate angles, or set a camera by a stream to capture an image of a bear hunting while you remain at a safe distance away - all this and more without missing a beat, a shot, or a moment.

This particular FreeWave unit is compatible with cameras with a sub-mini connection, i.e. Canon EOS Rebel series, R, 80D, & PowerShot G1 X, Contax N and 645, Pentax K and DS series, Samsung GX series DSLRs, and Olympus E-1, E-3, and E-5 cameras.

This versatile shutter release features Smart Code technology which allows it to be configured to operate on up to 16 million possible radio channels. You can easily switch channels to "zero in" on a frequency that provides optimal range and functionality.

The FreeWave operates with radio frequency (RF) technology, therefore a direct line of sight is not necessary; radio waves pass through objects such as windows and walls. It is unlike other wireless remotes on the market that operate on an Infrared (IR) system and require a direct line of sight between transmitter and receiver to make things work.

Since touching the camera even lightly while capturing an image can create a blurred image, the FreeWave eliminates this by tripping the shutter without any disturbances. This is critical when photographing subjects close up, and for long-exposures and macros. It is also extremely valuable when photographing nature, wildlife and other subjects that are difficult for you to get close to.

Smart Code

The FreeWave's Smart Code feature allows you to operate on 16,000,000 possible radio channels. No DIP switches need to be set, and one transmitter can trigger multiple receivers. The units have been synchronized at the factory, so your system can work right out of the box. However, to maximize signal quality and range, it is best to use the Smart Code technology to sense the "quiet" frequencies in your environment and re-synchronize on that channel.

Extended Range

The FreeWave can fire the camera's shutter from distances up to 320 feet (100 meters).

Multi-function

Trigger your camera wirelessly or wired. Wired triggering even works if the receiver battery is dead or missing.

Dual-Function Release

Press the transmitter's button half way to focus; press it fully to trigger the shutter.

Delayed Release

The two-second delay function gives you extra time to get into position.

Multi-exposure

You can take multiple shots with one press of the trigger.

Long Exposures

With the FreeWave you can control the length of the exposure remotely.

LED Indicators

Two LED indicators confirm pre-focus and exposure when in the wireless mode.

Versatile

The FreeWave includes a camera release cable that works with your particular camera model. By simply changing to another cable (additional purchase required) a single receiver can work with many other cameras as well.

I don't yet understand how the remote works by radio frequency so my concern is, will it work when I leave civilization?
Asked by: Tonya
The transmitter provides it's own radio signal when the button is pressed, the receiver will pick up that radio signal as long as it is within the 320-foot range of Transmitter. The set does not rely on existing AM or FM broadcast signals, it produces it's own.

question

Does this work with the canon rebel t5? If not is there anything I can use for my t5 that is wireless? Also can it start a video?
Asked by: Anonymous
No, the Vello FreeWave Wireless Remote Shutter Release for Canon w/3-Pin Connection, B&H # VERWC2, would not be compatible for use with the Canon EOS Digital Rebel T5 DSLR camera. The Canon EOS Digital Rebel T5 DSLR camera uses Canons E3 2.5mm sub-miniphone remote terminal, while the above remote comes with the Canon N3 3-pin remote terminal. As such, you would instead need the Vello FreeWave Wireless Remote Shutter Release (Canon Sub-Mini Connection), B&H # VERWC1, for your needs. Unfortunately, we have no remotes that would start video recording; video recording may only be started by pressing the Movie button on the back of the camera near the viewfinder. Remotes have a shutter button for releasing the cameras shutter, but no button designed for video recording.

I have 3 different cameras I'd like to use this with: 2 copies of the Sony A7Rii and the A7Riii. Can this initially be paired with each camera, and will the remote remember each or do I have to re-program it when I switch cameras? Thank you.
Asked by: Diane
This remote will work with many different cameras, you just need the appropriate cables. There is nothing to program, just plug and play.
