Giveaway: NeroTrigger for Your High Speed Photography

By Hanssie on July 22nd 2014

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.

The Giveaway!

To celebrate the launch of their new Kickstarter project, Nerotrigger is giving away one of their high speed triggers (a $199 retail value) to a lucky SLR Lounge community member. Note: The giveaway is for the highly acclaimed original Nero Trigger, not the unreleased Miops version on Kickstarter.

    Its a nice device… i wish it came with motion detection which should be a base setting. Yes you can make your own but there’s no info on doing the custom modes except “if you screw it up it’s your problem” but worth the price

    Awesome Giveaway. Though this is a pretty niche market, I can imagine that this is a must-have for anyone doing high-speed photography
