Hama have released a new IR Remote Trigger which they say is ideal for sports, wildlife and target photography because of the 'unique photoelectric detector is activated by motion and subsequently triggers your DSLR at precisely the right moment.'
To use the remote you have to position the receiver and transmitter opposite each other, up to 5 metres away, to create the photoelectric signal. The photoelectric sensor is battery powered which means you aren't restricted to working in places that have electrical sockets and it can be connected to the camera via a separate extension cable broadening the range of use. The device is suitable for any camera with a connection for an electric remote release and can be used separately as an infrared remote control for all cameras with a remote input.
The following parameters can be adjusted:
- Continuous shooting (possible with program, semi-automatic system or manual settings)
- Long-term exposures (bulb)
- Timer (4 seconds)
The IR Remote Trigger is available for £79.99 (SRP). For further informatio, visit Hama
