Triggertrap shows off new Redsnap modular camera triggering system
Triggertrap, makers of several camera triggering tools, have a new solution for trigger-happy photographers. Redsnap is a modular triggering system that starts with the Redsnap base block to which you can add sensor blocks, each designed for a different kind of photography. Its creators are currently gathering support via a Kickstarter campaign and hope to begin delivery by May of 2014.
The Redsnap base block has three outputs to hook up three cameras, three flashes, or a combination of both. It also works with the Triggertrap Mobile iOS and Android apps, which offer 14 additional triggering functions. The Redsnap base block will perform several camera triggering functions:
- Timelapses: two AA batteries can power a month-long timelapse
- TimeWarp: timelapses with acceleration
- Long exposure HDR with the choice of intervals from 1/3 to 2 EV steps, and up to 19 bracketed exposures per HDR set
- Star trail mode captures a series of long exposure shots for low-noise star trail, meteor or fireworks photos
The Redsnap system will initially offer four different sensor blocks that can be used with the base block, here's how Triggertrap describes each:
- High-speed laser sensor: With a reaction time of less than 60 microseconds, a typical bullet only has the time to fly 24 millimeters before your flash captures the bullet in flight – think about that!
- High-speed sound sensor: The sound sensor allows you to capture popping balloons, things smashing, and all manner of other cool destructive projects. Let your imagination be the limit!
- High-speed light sensor: Forget missing the photo of the great lightning strike, the high-speed light sensor stays on the lookout for you.
- Passive Infrared Sensor: Think "burglar alarm"; the Passive Infrared (PIR) sensor doesn’t use a beam (hence the "passive" thing), so it’s completely invisible — perfect for capturing sneaky photos whenever the sensor detects movement.
The Redsnap system will allow for simultaneous use of multiple sensor blocks; for example, you could set up a camera to be triggered by both sound and light.
Learn more about Redsnap and see more examples of the system in action on Kickstarter.
