In the studio or on location, the Vello FreeWave Wireless Remote Shutter Release adds flexibility and versatility to your shooting style. You 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 while you remain at a safe distance away--all this and more without missing a beat, a shot, or a moment. This FreeWave unit is compatible with cameras with a sub-mini connection, i.e., Canon EOS Rebel series, 60D, 70D, PowerShot G15 and G1 X, Contax N and 645, Hasselblad H, Pentax K and DS, Sigma SD and Samsung GX series cameras.
This 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 some 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 to approach.

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.
Trigger your camera wirelessly or wired. Wired triggering even works if the receiver battery is dead or missing.
Press the transmitter's button half way to focus; press it fully to trigger the shutter.
The two-second delay function gives you extra time to get into position.
The FreeWave can fire the camera's shutter from distances of up to 320 feet (100 meters).
You can take multiple shots with one press of the trigger.
With FreeWave you can control the length of the exposure remotely.
Two LED indicators confirm pre-focus and exposure when in the wireless mode.
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.

Wild referring to wildlife and the family portraits! Trying to use a timer when I want to be in a picture or, more commonly when I am taking a family photo shoot and I get everyone posed properly by the time I run back behind the camera one of the kids has moved. With this wonder I just step out of the frame and depress the focus and shoot. I could be 100ft away and it worked perfectly!! It even works through trees so I can shoot wildlife I got a bunch of birds that I could never have gotten without the remote. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!
