MK Controls Lightning Bug Overview

The Lightning Bug Shutter Trigger from MK Controls helps you to photograph lightning by sensing the unseen infrared light that precedes a lightning strike and then triggering your camera. It can attach to your camera's hot shoe, or to a cold shoe on a stand.

The Lightning Bug has an LED indicator that displays your current sensitivity level from 1 to 26. The lower the sensitivity is set, the brighter and closer the lightning must be to trigger the Lightning Bug. You can also set the amount of times the Lightning Bug will trigger your camera from 1 to 10 frames per second. Three soft-touch buttons on the top of the unit control the power, FPS, and sensitivity levels, and they are water resistant so you can continue shooting in light rain. The Lightning Bug is made in the USA.

A shutter-release cable that is compatible with your camera and a 9V battery must be purchased separately for operation.

question

Why can I buy this cheaper from the manufacturer? They sell their unit with an interface cable for $179.00 - you don't include the cable (and I don't even see how I can order it on your site) - what's up with that??????
Asked by: Anonymous
The reason that we do not sell the MK Controls Lightning Bug Shutter Trigger with an included cable is because you need a cable that is specific to the type of camera that you have, which is not universal for all of our customers. However, there is a generally universal 1 Male To 2 Female Splitter Cable from MK Controls available for use with this trigger, which you can find here: http://bhpho.to/1cTr73X
