If you intend on perfecting your work in product photography then one accessory that you will find indispensable is a wireless remote shutter release. This will allow you to effectively press the shutter on your camera without touching the camera. In turn, this will result sharper images because you will have no unwanted movement or vibration to the camera. A remote trigger is a must for any kind of product photography.
In this review I am going to look at four wireless remotes from Vello, a company that produces a full range of photographic accessories. The products that I will examine range from around $40 all the way to $200. They go from the most basic functionality all the way to full live view direct from your camera. They are Vello Freewave, Vello Freewave Plus, Vello Wireless ShutterBoss, and Vello Viewer. Since I have a Canon camera the models that I tested and the prices listed were based on my system. For other systems the main difference is the cable that is needed and Vello has cables for Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Sony, and Panasonic.
