HDR PHOTOGRAPHY REMOTE SHUTTER RELEASE

The remote shutter release is a great accessory for HDR photography and may be a necessary accessory if your camera doesn’t have a self-timer that works with AEB. For our entire workshop, we never used a shutter release because the Canon 5DM3 has an HDR mode with mirror lock up. When used with the 2 or 10-second self-timer, we only have to hit the shutter button once and the camera will capture the entire sequence on its own. We just have to press the shutter to start the countdown process and the 5DM3 does everything for us.

With older cameras that don’t have AEB or an HDR mode, we have to press the shutter manually with our finger, once to lock up the mirror and once to shoot the photo. This will add up to about 6 shutter presses with your finger, and that can cause some camera shifting and shake.

For these situations, a shutter release is a must-have in order to operate the camera while minimizing camera shifting and shake. There are a lot of different brands out there for remote shutter releases, but we can really only recommend one, the Vello Shutterboss. The Vello Shutterboss has been the only shutter release that has actually been reliable enough that we feel comfortable recommending it.
