The Trigger Smart system is designed to capture images by using either sound, increases in light intensity, infra-red beam breaking, or movement as the trigger to fire the camera shutter. This kit hands the imaginative photographer a raft of tools for creating dynamic and interesting images. The kit is an obvious boon to those wishing to capture wildlife in its natural environment, yet also has a myriad of studio uses and is a fantastic creative tool. What's more, the kit can be expanded with additional sensors; presenting further inventive opportunities.

Further details

The kit contains the MCT-1 Controller, IR/LIS Receiver, IR Transmitter and Sound Sensor, two mini tripods, two control cables, one trigger cable and a two degree baffle. An additional, separately available Tilt-Sensor Switch will detect movement, adding yet another dimension to this extraordinary trigger system. The abilities of all the sensors are controlled and enhanced by the MCT-1 control unit and it is used to adjust sensitivity and introduce delays in triggering the camera. Single exposure or continuous shooting over given time spans can be chosen. The included trigger cable will operate all cameras with a 2.5mm jack plug remote control connection other models will require adapters (see the accessories tab).
