Have you ever become discouraged by motion blur in your photos? Especially when you’ve made the effort to set your camera up on a tripod? What’s happening is that when you press the shutter button, it introduces just enough camera shake to cause unwanted blurring. But there is a simple solution for this problem, called a remote shutter release. It’s a handy little gadget that releases the shutter without you having to touch it. I recently purchased a Vello Freewave Plus Wireless Remote Shutter for my Canon camera, and I’d love to share my thoughts about it with you.
Features and uses
The Vello Remote has two components: the wired receiver and the wireless transmitter. The receiver connects to the camera through the Canon 3-pin connector. The handheld transmitter acts as a trigger to open and close your shutter and work from up to a thousand meters away! Pretty neat, right? The transmitter and receiver communicate via the 2.4 GHz frequency and both work on two AAA batteries. With sixteen channels to choose from to find the best signal, you have no fear of interference. It’s got multiple features for shooting like four-second delay, long exposure, and multi-exposure modes.
LED indicators to confirm exposure and pre-focus. Very well made and compact. I can take pictures from a long way off. I even tested it by placing my Canon camera near my birdhouse and took a picture with the remote from inside my house. Perfect for group photos when you want to be in the image. Why should your friends & family have all the fun? Simple-to-use and works great
I’ve used it several times, and it works both well indoors and out. Even around corners! The cord is long enough to tape to my tripod and I love how handy it is. The transmitter fits into my pocket, and sometimes I forget it's even there. That’s how light it is. If you’re looking for a remote control shutter for your Canon camera, the Vello is your best bet.
