Wireless Triggers v2
The Camtraptions Wireless Trigger v2 is a versatile and reliable solution for remotely firing a camera or off-camera flashes. The new v2 triggers now feature 15 wireless channels, allowing more wireless camera traps with off-camera flash to be set up in a given area without any interference. A new power input socket on the side of the Wireless Trigger v2 makes it easy to plug in external battery packs and keep the triggers running for weeks or even months at a time!
The Camtraptions Wireless Triggers v2 are fully compatible with the v1 Triggers and Wireless PIR Motion Sensor v3.
- Dual-function wireless trigger, which can be used as a remote shutter release for a camera, or as a radio trigger for flashes
- Multiple receiver units can be used to fire several remote cameras or off-camera flashes using a single Transmitter v1, Transmitter v2 or the PIR Sensor v3.
- Wireless range of up to 120m
- Compatible with Canon* & Nikon systems
- Flash sync speed up to 1/320s
- TTL pass-through on transmitter**
- Wakes sleeping speedlights
- New power input socket makes it easy to extend the life of the triggers with external batteries
- Receiver standby time: 200 hours (over 2 months with the External Battery Kit)
- 2.4GHz frequency, 15 channels
*See "Compatibility" note below.
**This means a flash or flash cable mounted on top of the transmitter can be TTL, but not flashes connected to the wireless receivers.
Remote shutter release mode
Simply plug one end of a camera connecting cable (purchased separately) into the Receiver and the other end into your camera's shutter release socket. You can then remotely fire your camera by pressing the button on the Transmitter.
Flash radio trigger mode
Slide the Transmitter in to the hot shoe on top of your camera and place your speedlight flash into the hot shoe on top of the Receiver. Your flash will now wake and fire when your camera takes a photo. You can purchase additional receivers in order to fire multiple flashes with a single transmitter.
Perfect for Camera Traps!
The Camtraptions Wireless Triggers v2 are compatible with many different camera and flash brands, including Canon and Nikon. This means you can use a Canon camera to wake and fire Nikon flashes and vice versa without any additional adapter. The triggers can wake sleeping flashes when the camera powers up which means your flashes will be ready to fire at the first shot.
One or two cameras, such as the Canon EOS 1D X, have been found to power up and fire off the first shot so quickly that the flashes do not wake up in time to fire at the first shot. Our PIR Sensor v3 can overcome this problem for fast cameras by introducing a short wake delay. Note also that Canon has crippled some entry level DSLR cameras such as the 200Dii/SL3, 2000D/T7, 3000D and 4000D by removing the universal flash sync contact from the hot shoe; these cameras can only be used with Canon speedlite flashes and cannot trigger flashes via our wireless triggers. Please contact us if you would like to confirm whether your camera is compatible.
External Battery Kits
It is also possible plug higher capacity batteries into the triggers using an External Battery Kit. The triggers can be powered by two AA batteries or two D Cell batteries for a standby time of more than two weeks or two months respectively. Please note that the maximum supply voltage cannot be greater than 3.5 volts. These external battery kits can be purchased here.
