THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING VELLO
The FreeWave Micro Wireless Remote Shutter Release for Nikon is a low-profile shutter trigger that helps
you take better pictures away from your camera and avoid camera shake. Setup is a snap by connecting to your
Nikon camera’s 10-pin remote terminal—there are no cables and no hogging your hot shoe. Select from 16
different wireless channels, and fire the shutter from up to 328 feet away. Using the FreeWave Micro, you can
activate autofocus, trigger the shutter, open and close bulb exposures, and start and stop continuous shooting—
all without touching your camera.

INSTRUCTIONS
Connecting the Receiver
The camera must have a 10-pin
remote terminal in order to
connect the FreeWave Micro
Wireless Receiver.
1. Turn your camera’s power
off, and insert the receiver’s
connector into the camera’s
10-pin remote terminal. Make
sure the receiver’s antenna is
pointed up.
2. Turn the locking wheel
clockwise until the receiver
is securely connected to the
camera.

3. Press the receiver’s power
switch once. You should see
the power LED quickly flash
red, then blink at a steady rate.
To turn the receiver off, press
and hold the power switch
until the power LED quickly
flashes red and then stops.
Note: The receiver will enter
sleep mode after it has been on
for two hours without being
activated. When the receiver is
in sleep mode, press the power
switch to resume operation.

Installing the Transmitter’s
Battery
1. Slide the transmitter’s battery
compartment cover in the
direction of the arrow. You
might need to press down on
the cover when sliding.
2. Install the included AAA
battery according to the image
in the battery chamber. Make
sure the polarity is correct.
3. Slide the cover closed until it
clicks to lock.
8
Pairing the Transmitter to
the Receiver
There are 16 radio frequencies
(channels), available on the
transmitter and receiver.
Configure the four DIP switches
on both devices in the same
positions for correct channel
selection.
For example:
This allows you to use the
FreeWave Micro without
interference from other radiofrequency devices nearby. Be sure
to maintain a minimum distance
of 20 inches (50 cm) between the
transmitter and receiver during
operation to prevent anti-RF
interference.
9
Setting the Channel on the
Transmitter and Receiver
1. Slide open the transmitter’s
battery compartment cover.
2. Using the channel selection
pin connected to the lanyard,
position each of the four DIP
switches up or down, into a
channel configuration.
3. On the receiver, position
the DIP switches into the
same configuration as on the
transmitter.
4. With the receiver on, press the
transmitter’s shutter release.
You should see the receiver’s
focus and shutter LEDs light
up, as well as the transmitter’s
LED indicator. If the two are
paired correctly, slide the
transmitter’s cover closed until
it locks. If not, repeat steps 2
and 3 until you reach a working
channel configuration.
