Wireless Intervalometer & Multi-function Shutter Release Remote

This product is designed to provide a range of advanced remote triggering functions for DSLR cameras. It is ideally suited for use in time-lapse production, using its "timer program" function to automatically trigger the camera at regular set intervals, but can also be used in any of its other 4 modes. 

 

 

This timer also has the added advantage of being wireless, with a range of 80 metres or more (in a clear line of sight). The hand held unit sends a signal wirelessly over the reliable 2.4GHz frequency. This signal is picked up by the receiver unit, which is connected to the camera via the shutter release port.

 

 


In the case of multiple cameras being used, or if interference is encountered, the sender and receiver can be set to one of the 99 channels. Alternatively, the “all” channel can be set, to send signal to all receivers within range.


The receiver unit has useful hot shoe/tripod mount. This can be used to secure the unit to the camera or a tripod; alternatively it can be left dangling.


A key benefit of this intervalometer is its interchangeable connection cords, allowing connection with different cameras without needing to purchase a whole new device. Additional cables are available (please see other listings). If the wireless functionality is not required at any time, receiver battery life can be saved by removing the camera connection cable from the receiver unit, and plugging it directly into the control unit, as if it were a wired intervalometer.

 

 

 

 

Timer program.

1. Set Delay (optional)
This is the amount of time before the program starts - (use to begin the shoot at a set time) - can be set anywhere from 1 second to 99 hours, 59 minutes & 59 seconds.
2. Set Exposure Time (optional)
Usually this does not need to be set at all, as DSLRs already have their own setting for shutter speed. However if exposures longer than around 30 seconds are required, most cameras will not be able to achieve this using pre-set shutters speeds. If using these very long exposures, set the camera to "BULB" mode, and enter a value for shutter speed (max 99 hours, 59 minutes & 59 seconds) on the intervalometer.
3. Set Interval Time
This setting is the amount of time between each shot. (max 99 hours, 59 minutes & 59 seconds).
4. Set Number of Shots
The number of shots to take can be set between 1 and 99, alternatively the "--" setting can be used to take an unlimited number of shots, until stopped by the user.
5. Press the play button to start and stop the shoot.

 

Other Modes

Mode 1: Standard single shutter release. Press the button half way down to autofocus, and/or fully down to trigger the shutter release. If you do not already have a remote shutter release, this is a highly useful way to take pictures without needing to physically press the button. This avoids camera shake and resultant blurred images.

Mode 2: Continuous shutter release.
This mode works as above, but when the button is held fully down, it takes continuous shots.

Mode 3: Bulb shutter release.
Set your camera and the remote to bulb mode and press the release button on the remote. The shutter will stay open until the button is pressed a second time. The remote's LCD screen will display the time that the shutter has been open for.

Mode 4: Delay.
Use the remote to set a "count down time" (max 59 seconds), and a value for the number of shots to take (max 99). After the count down time has run down to zero, the camera will take the number of shots you have pre-set (approx. one every second). Great for group photos where the photographer can be included in the picture.

Above: An excellent time-lapse showreel example.

Other Features

  • Long transmitter battery life, using 2 x AAA batteries (included).
  • Long receiver unit standby time (approx 400 hours) using 1 x CR2 battery (included).
  • Durable, scratch proof casing.
  • Backlight for use in low light situations (transmitter and receiver).
  • Automatic power off mode when inactive.
  • Coiled cord, stops cable getting in the way, but can be made to stretch a long distance if required.
  • 99 & "all" channels.
  • Hotshoe/tripod mount.

 

Free software CD

Having spent a long time trying to track down a good piece of free software to compile individual frames into a video file, we have eventually found one that works. With each camera remote sold, a free software CD, including an image frames to video converter, as well as a batch cropping tool will be included.

Image frames to video: Allows output to AVI (including various optional compression codecs), SWF, GIF and many other formats. The user can set the frame rate, as well as the output size of the clip.

Batch cropping tool: A very useful tool. Apply a crop to the first image. The program then automatically applies it to all other selected images in one click.

Please note, both programs are freeware. They are fully functional programs and not demos.
