Wireless Trigger Kit
The Camtraptions Wireless Trigger is a versatile and reliable solution for remotely firing a camera or off-camera flashes.
The Camtraptions Wireless Trigger Kit includes:
- 1 x Transmitter
- 1 x Receiver
- Optional: 1 x Power Modification Cable and AA battery holder for the Receiver
Additional Receivers can be purchased here.
- Dual-function wireless trigger, which can be used as a remote shutter release for a camera, or as a radio trigger for flashes
- 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
- Receiver standby time: 200 hours (unlimited with the External Battery Modification)
- 2.4GHz frequency, 7 channels
*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 the supplied camera connecting cable 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 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!
This trigger kit is compatible with both Canon and Nikon cameras and flashes. 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. Note: 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. Our PIR Sensor v3 can overcome this problem for many cameras, but please contact us if you would like to confirm whether your camera is compatible.
External Battery Modification
As standard, each device takes two AAA batteries. This gives a standby time of around 200 hours. If you select the "External Battery Modification" variant then the receivers can also be easily modified to take larger batteries, for example, two AA batteries which would result in a standby time of more than two weeks (please note that the maximum supply voltage cannot be greater than 3.3 volts). You can find out how to perform this modification in this video: Wireless Trigger Power Modification
