Faster than the naked eye, and with exposure speeds up to over 1/6000 to freeze time, high speed photography is exciting, challenging, and dynamic. But you need to have a pretty fast reaction time – milliseconds to when your brain processes and you press the shutter – a near impossible task when you consider trying to literally stop a bullet in its tracks. That is why using a trigger is the way to go for your creative photography.

Last week, NeroTrigger announced their new Kickstarter project, the MIOPS: a smartphone controllable high speed trigger. Using your phone’s Bluetooth technology, you will be able to control the settings on the trigger for your high speed photography needs – such as freezing milk mid splash or lightning striking the Earth.

Only a few days in and Nerotrigger’s Kickstarter project has exceeded its goal of $70,000 raising over $127k and still with 38 days to go! The new MIOPS has three different sensors – light, sound and laser and a variety of modes. When the trigger detects an event, such as a balloon popping, it will trigger your camera or flash unit. You can even hook up external sensors to the device for even more creative fun.
