Hi Brian. I have the Vello Shutterboss II and found that it does not work properly with my Sony A7II.
They state that “It can also be set to take multiple photos with a single press of the shutter” That is partially true. It will work as long as none of the exposure is longer than 1 second. Otherwise, it will drop that exposure.
For example, the other day, I set up my camera for multiple exposures using Aperture priority and auto-bracketing for 3 exposures at plus and minus 1 EV apart. The Shutterboss II worked fine until one of the exposure was longer than 1 second. Then, it will shoot the ones shorter than 1 second and completely drop the one longer than 1 second.
Any ideas? Suggestions for a trigger that works properly with Sony?
The work-around would be to change the shooting mode from Bracketing Continuous to Bracketing Single. That requires a press of the shutter for each exposure but with the added benefit that as long as the exposures remain below 30-seconds you’ll record in 14-bit instead of 12-bit that you get with any continuous mode.
