Whether capturing images in the studio or on location, the Vello FreeWave Wireless Remote Shutter Release 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 3-pin connection, i.e. Canon 1D series, 5D and 7D series DSLRs. 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.
Compatibility Canon EOS 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D, 50D, 5D, 5D Mark II, 5D Mark III, 6D, 7D, 7D Mark II, 1D, 1D Mark II, 1D Mark II N, 1D Mark III, 1D Mark IV, 1Ds, 1Ds Mark II, 1Ds Mark III, 1D X and 1D C
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.
1-Year Limited Warranty
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I got this remote shutter release for my Canon 40D so that I could be in photos occasionally. I was very pleased with all of the features of the remote, for such a reasonable cost. It was super easy to use, and worked right out of the box. I can take one photo or as many in a row as I want to. No complaints!
Just tried it and it works fine with my Canon 5D mk3 via the 3pin connector. Has LED indicators on the receiver for focus and shutter. Also nice that you can use it as a wired release with even if the battery dies.
The right unit at the right price. So many of my photographic tools are painfully overpriced, this one is not. It just works and allows me to get out of the shot where there are mirrors. Also, not being tethered by a shutter release cable makes the camera steadier. If your camera also has a mirror up mode, use it. The mirror flipping up adds considerable shake to the image.
