- Vello FreeWave Wireless Remote Shutter Release for Canon with 3-Pin Connection
- Transmitter Can Fire Multiple Receivers * Wireless Autofocusing & Triggering
- 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.

First Test Run of a Product Shoot - The Photo Forum - Photography ...
Four of my fourteen lenses. Here are things I notice: Need to clean lenses before taking photos of them...need to minimize shadows somehow. Could use tips on that. Here is how I set this up: thought I could go get some poster board or something similar but ended up short in money...so I used what I had at my disposal. Sheets of printer paper laid on a table in my kitchen. The ceiling light (fluorescent lighting) in the kitchen. A white wall for the background. A long exposure (2-13 seconds depending on length of lens barrel, the longer the barrel, the higher the f-stop to increase DOF, the longer the exposure). I noticed though, because of the size of the table and the proximity to the wall, I could only go so small in aperture before the mess of papers would start to show. I did get some grey in there, but this was a first of, hopefully, many. Without further ado, here are four of the lenses I have in my collection (starting off with my favorite, almost permattached lens):
Nikon D40 and Sigma 18-200 lens, side view fully extended at 200mm

Clear sky, apart from some low lying cloud, it gave a pretty cool effect.
