Never leaves my bag

For controlled long exposures, this is MUCH better than the Canon TC-80N3 - and it uses AAA batteries.

This is just my experience and I'm only one person but, boy was this a disappointment! I used it exclusively for shooting timelapse photography and for the first two months it worked as designed. After about two months, using it exactly as I always had, the shutter randomly wouldn't trigger every couple of intervals, ruining the timelapse shots. And then on my way to shoot at Niagra falls the Shutterboss just failed completely. I checked the user manual, forums, pressed the reset button, swapped the batteries. It just doesn't work. Never got it wet or dirty or dropped it. It just doesn't work. Still can't figure it out.

Great Product, Great Customer service

Comments about Vello ShutterBoss II Timer Remote Switch for Canon with 3-Pin Connection:

Original item had a loose connection as I've heard other reviewers say. I posted a negative review and the next day had e-mails from B&H AND the manufacturer wanting to correct the issue. Since I saw another review of the same I thought they'd send me a replacement only to find the same flaw.

Both quickly processed the RMA and within a week I had the replacement. Fully functioning, tight connection, great product at a fraction of the cost of the Canon model. At this point I have only been able to do a simple run through on the feature set to make sure all working properly and it does!

Bought to use for time-lapse and long exposure astro-imaging shots. Should do the trick nicely and be a great addition to my arsenal. Bought this for a total steal on a WONDERFUL B&H deal-zone sale thought worth the still low retail price. Every so often they have something great like this in the Deal-Zone.

Took off 1 star only because I needed to go through the RMA process when you just hope to have the item arrive ready to go no muss no fuss. However, I can't say enough positive in favor of both B&H and Vello's customer service. Actively seeking to right the wrong I was prepared to just accept as taking a chance on what could be a 'cheap' product. I'm glad they had the sense to urge me to correct it and their company and customer loyalty is A+. Vello is a great aftermarket equipment option for budget buyers like myself. Thanks to both companies for the top-notch customer loyalty.

In replacing the Canon TC-80N3 which is at an exorbitant price.
It's a little bigger.
Works as well as the Canon, which is amazing for the price, especially since I wore a 50% discount!
One only small defect the connection tends to unhook a bit easily.

Must have for star trails

Comments about Vello ShutterBoss II Timer Remote Switch for Canon with 3-Pin Connection:

I bought two of these when they went on sale, one for the 60D/EOSM5 (different plug), and this one for the 6D. The 6D has a multiple exposure setting so the shutter boss can be used to set up the multiple shots and you can just press the button and come back after the multiple shots are taken. Avoids a lot of post-processing. My only criticism, as others have pointed out, is that the plug doesn't have a positive feel, like the snap when you plug in the Canon wired remote. Best to take a test shot to make sure it's plugged in. Other than that, it's very versatile for the price.

Comments about Vello ShutterBoss II Timer Remote Switch for Canon with 3-Pin Connection:

This remote works as advertised at about a third of the Canon timer remote. I think the Canon design is a little bit nicer and it's probably a little bit better made. But unless you're going to use the timer functions a lot more than I will, save some money. My only complaint is that the connector fits a little tight, but that's better than being loose.

Comments about Vello ShutterBoss II Timer Remote Switch for Canon with 3-Pin Connection:

I bought this well in advance of needing it, and since 2015 it has been used 4 times, the connection is sloppy and now without constant pressure won't work at all, I try not to review anything until I have had time to use it, and with only 4 uses and the rest of the time being in my camera bag, I think it's safe to say it's not worth the price, I used this on my Canon 6d

Comments about Vello ShutterBoss II Timer Remote Switch for Canon with 3-Pin Connection:

this is great. I have only been able to mess around with it for a little bit but I can really see and tell that this is going to really help me out for timing issues, from delayed timing to shooting and delaying the actual time between pictures. It seems really easy to use as well. I look forward to using it out on a photo shot

So far, I have used this Timer Remote to capture star trails as well as a time-lapse of the morning sunrise. As long as you remember the sequence you are setting up happens from left to right on the display, you will have no problems at all!

I have the wireless Shutterboss and have found several times the batteries were dead in the field.
I bought this one so that even if the batteries are dead I can still trip the shutter.

Not worth the money at all, as I used it only few times with in a year. Now, broken and not working. Warranty only for a first year. Do not buy this product.
