Product Highlights
  • For Canon 1D Mark III, 1Ds Mark III, 5D Mark II, 7D, 30D, 40D, 50D Digital Cameras

The Promote Control Shutter Cable CN3 from Promote Systems is for use with the intuitive Promote Control which adds remote functionality to your digital SLR camera. It allows you to engage High Dynamic Range (HDR) photographs, time lapse sequences and more, quickly and easily.

Canon 10D, 20D, 5D Mk I, 1D/1Ds MkI and 1D/1Ds MkII cameras are not supported by the Promote Control HDR mode (with or without CN3 cable). Only a limited subset of basic features such as One-Shot, Time Lapse and Manual Hold are possible on these cameras, and would require a CN3 cable to be connected. The 1D Mark III, 1Ds Mark III, 5D Mark II, 30D, 40D, 50D cameras are fully compatible, including HDR mode.

On Canon 5D Mark II and 7D the longest automatic HDR exposure is limited to 30 seconds due to mechanical Bulb mode activation. A future Promote Control firmware update will prompt to activate Bulb mode manually as required. At this time using a higher ISO setting is recommended with Canon 5D Mark II and 7D if an exposure longer than 30 seconds is required in HDR mode.

Enables mirror lock-up functionality
Allows automated exposures longer than 30 seconds
Ensures faster camera reaction to shutter release, especially in "High Dynamic Range" mode
Activates "Manual Hold" mode
Enables arbitrary shutter speeds in "One Shot" and "Time Lapse" modes
Allows pre-focusing the camera using the Promote Control "Focus" button
Enables basic Promote Control shutter release functionality even when out of battery power

        Comments about Promote Systems Shutter Control Cable CN3:

        If you want full mirror lockup and the most powerful shutter control, you need to get this cable when you get a Promote HDR control. This version is for some Canon cameras. Check the Promote website to make sure you're getting the right one.

        It stores well in the Promote's case. Like any shutter control cable, it is a bit awkward to install and remove from your camera.

              I use it for time lapse photography with my Promote Control and Canon EOS 5D MK III. A must have accessory for the Promote Control as it adds more advanced options.

                There's not much to say since this is only a cable. It does what it needs to do and it does it well.

                This speeds up HDRI capture time by about 30-50% with my 5d mkii. Nice.
