IR solutions are small, lightweight and easy to use with a RC control system.

Our solution to trigger digital stills cameras with IR capability, comes in three types, all triggered directly from one channel on the Radio Control (RC) system. All come with a 25cm (10") 3-pin servo lead, & weighs 4grams.

Shutter Control
With the most camera coverage, shutter only operation from a standard Radio Control (RC) system, or by any switch contact via the "blue wire".
Movement of the RC Transmitter stick from one extreme to the other will trigger the camera.
Additional features include:
continuous operation: allows multiple pictures to be taken if the RC servo control is held in the on position, variable from 5 to 1 second.
switch operation: This is an extra blue wire to the device, which if shorted triggers the shutter.

More information: Operating Manual.

Shutter & Movie Control
As an alternative to Shutter Control (above), some Canon and Sony cameras also support movie start-stop. Features are the same as above with the additional video recording all achieved from one center-biased channel on the RC system by pushing the "joystick" in either direction. To prevent false triggers, he RC signal needs to be sent for ~1second. Note: Shutter commands can be sent to Canon cameras already recording if supported by the camera.

Gentles controllers are small, lightweight and easy to use with a RC system.

More information: Operating Manual.

ZOOM Control
allows control of the zoom via another channel on the RC receiver. This channel is center biased, pushing the stick in either direction zooms in and out.

More information: Operating Manual.

Note: To control shutter and zoom you will need to purchase two devices. Also note that the Pentax zoom doesn't give full control of the zoom, but is limited by the camera to three pre-set focal lengths, for the extremes and center of the lens on the camera.
