Photographers looking for a device that offers a wide variety of different trigger options whether it be wireless, wired or smartphone or tablet app triggers then a new piece of hardware created by Kris Cheng may be worth more investigation.
The Spark Camera Remote is capable of triggering your DSLR or mirror list camera with three different triggering options available, watch the demonstration video below to learn more.
Spark has this week launched by Kickstarter and already has over 1,100 backers with still 37 days remaining on its campaign. Pledges are available from $39 for early bird backers and shipping is expected to take place during August 2017.
Spark is the most versatile camera remote on the market. With three different modes of control, Spark was built to adapt to whatever situation you are shooting in. Whether you’re taking a fun group photo, capturing a long exposure of the stars, or settling down and setting up a time lapse, Spark gives you instant control. With your phone or without it. Spark combines the speed of infrared triggering, with the reliability of a traditional wired trigger, and the power and feature set of smartphone app control.
Spark communicates with your camera’s infrared sensor for quick wireless control. Historically, these kinds of triggers have been flimsy, lacked time delay control, and had short battery life. Spark takes a different approach with a one year battery life, time delay options, and elegant design.
If you’ve dreamed of capturing beautiful, sharp images in low light at night, Spark is made for you. The ability to trigger your camera without touching it allows for a perfectly still exposure, meaning even long shutter speeds come out crisp. So whether you are traveling to foreign landscapes, or trying to catch a family photo in fading light, you will be amazed at the photos you can take with Spark.
