Description

Pluto Trigger is a high-speed smart camera trigger that's controlled by a free iPhone/Android app over Bluetooth LE(Low Energy) that can be used for remote shooting, time lapse, High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography, video recording and lightning photography.It enables your DSLR to do high-speed photography triggered by sound, by light, or by something breaking a laser beam aimed at the Pluto Trigger (the laser is included). With the built-in PIR sensor, Pluto Trigger can detect animals’ body heat and take photos.It can also wait until a person is smiling to shoot a photo, or take pictures triggered by motion or vibration. You know those fancy photos of water droplets colliding in mid-air? There's a mode for that too(Droplet Valve required) -- 24 modes in all. 

Pluto Trigger has infrared(IR) remote control capability, which enables it to support a wide variety of cameras (not just DSLRs). It can also work as a selfie remote for your iPhone(Pluto Camera required). The app can even calculate depth of field, shutter speed when using an ND filter, 500 Rule and Sunrise/Sunset Time!

Want to trigger multiple cameras simultaneously AND wirelessly? Check out the RF Transmitter & Receiver.

Refer to User Manual and FAQ for more information. Check the Quick Start Guide to see how easy it is to use Pluto Trigger!

Please make sure your phone supports Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth LE or BLE). Compatible devices are iPhone 4s or later, iPad 3 or later, iPod Touch 5 or later, iPad Mini, Android 4.3 with Bluetooth 4.0 LE or later. Go to the Google Play store and install the "BLE Checker" to find out whether BLE is supported on your device.

This purchase was my second. That should tell you something. Now I have one for each of my cameras.

Takes a while to learn to use it properly but it has served me well.

Really impressed at the versatility

My only disappointment is that I haven't had a thunderstorm to photograph yet! Otherwise it is really easy to use, the app is great - I like the fact that you can see the settings so easily. I looked at al lot of triggers out there and Pluto was the most versatile and 'future proff' so as my skills develop I won't need to go out and buy yet another gadget for my camera. This one does it all - and it's a good price as well - especially considering the laser trigger is packaged as well; everything you need to get started is in the box. I took a series of Milky Way photos with my Pluto and stacked them - I'm really happy with the results. I would recommend Pluto over everything else.

Great Product

The Trigger is great when combined with the water drop kit represents great value for money and by far the cheapest way to get in to water drop. The unit is not perfect the set times are not super accurate and are often 0.1 to 0.2 seconds short, over long exposures this makes zero difference to the image quality but worth mentioning, App has loads of functionality I have not even tried all the modes yet

A Great Tool!!

Another great tool to add to my creative duffel bag! Easy to use, sets up easily and the menus are terrific. I am very pleased with the Pluto trigger for what I have used it for so far. Seeking every opportunity to learn all about it. Great design including the app. No buyers remorse with this!

Great addition to camera bag!

I haven't used all of the features yet, but from what I've seen it works great. The lightning and intervalometer settings along with the iphone app are worth the purchase alone.

Amazing Trigger

I use an iPad mini for controlling mainly astronomy pictures using a Sigma 150-600 on Nikon bodies. So much easier setting up the camera using this. Highly recommended.

First Pluto trigger

What I have used on the trigger so far is awesome. Set up shots of hummingbirds. I want to get some lightning also, but waiting on the weather for that. Very happy with my purchase

Brilliant Product

Other than a few issues to start with which I have since found is a camera lag issue I have enjoyed learning new genres.
