AEO Photo Lightning Strike Micro MT PRO 3.0 Shutter Trigger with Subminiature 2.5mm (0.09") Cable for Canon and Pentax Cameras -
The AEO Photo Lightning Strike! Micro MT PRO 3.0 Shutter Trigger with Subminiature 2.5mm (0.09") Cable is a light and motion activated camera triggering device designed to capture images of lightning, fireworks and other light producing events. The Lightning Strike! Micro MT PRO 3.0 Trigger can give you a leg up on that tricky enterprise. Attached directly to your camera's hot shoe, the Micro MT PRO 3.0 detects lightning in the distance and triggers your camera in an incredible 0.1 milliseconds to capture the power and beauty of a lightning strike.
The Micro MT PRO is so designated because it is a multi-trigger system with a Lightning Mode and a Motion Mode, operated by a simple switch. In Lightning Mode, the sensor reacts to bursts of light in day or night and in Motion Mode, a 10M PIR sensor with a Fresnel lens will trigger the camera when movement is detected within a 10 meter radius.
The Lightning Strike! Micro MT PRO 3.0 is extremely compact and well designed, measuring 2.75" x 2.25" x 0.75" (7.0 x 5.7 x 1.9 cm). The MT PRO 3.0 features a locking hot shoe and tripod mount and a manually controlled sensitivity override for better triggering control in varied situations. Unique to the Lightning Strike! are their proprietary electronics which allow for image review after every shot and improved noise immunity to help eliminate unwanted firings.
Little touches, like the low profile LED to minimize reflections when shooting through windows and a "positive action" ON/OFF switch that will not activate accidentally and drain your battery make this a perfect tool for storm chasers. The Micro MT PRO 3.0 is compatible with most DSLR cameras and utilizes cables specific to each camera. This model comes with a Subminiature 2.5 mm cable and is compatible with Canon G10, Canon Rebel, Canon Digital Rebel, Rebel XT, Rebel XSi, Rebel XTi, EOS Elan, EOS IX and Pentax K10D, K100D, K20D, K200D cameras.
