The Promote Control from Promote Systems is an advanced remote control for digital SLR cameras that replaces other manufacturer's remote control devices. It allows the doors for your creativity to open with its superior automation and intuitive ease of use. The Promote provides flexibility for exposure bracketing commonly used to create HDR (High Dynamic Range) images which reveal stunning detail and tonal range.
One of the most useful features of the Promote Control is an advanced Time-Lapse mode normally found only in middle to high end professional DSLR cameras. With the Promote, time-lapse photography with any camera is supported including affordable entry level DSLRs.
This highly customizable device can be calibrated to match your personal preferences. Moreover, the device's firmware is upgradeable, so it will stay up-to-date with the latest functionality and enhanced capabilities of future camera models.
Canon 300D, 350D, 10D, 20D, 5D Mk I, 1D/1Ds Mk I and 1D/1Ds Mk II cameras are not supported in HDR mode. Only basic operations such as One-Shot, Time-Lapse and Manual Hold are available on these cameras, and would require a CN3 cable to be connected.
Canon 5D Mk III, 60D, 70D and 6D cannot be automatically switched to Bulb mode if/when required by HDR bracketing (>30 second exposures only). A prompt will be shown on the Promote Control screen if a Bulb mode is required in HDR mode.
