The Lightning Bug Shutter Trigger with Cable for Select Canon N3 Cameras 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 is included for attaching the Lightning Bug to these compatible cameras: Canon: 10D, 20D, 20Da, 30D, 40D, 50D, 5D, 5D MK II, 5D MK III, 6D, 7D, D30, D60, 1D, 1DC, 1DX, 1D MK II, 1D MK II N, 1D MK III, 1D MK IV, 1Ds, 1Ds MK II, 1Ds MK III, 1v, 1v HS, EOS 3

Lightning Bug Shutter Trigger with Cable for Select Canon N3 Cameras is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Lighning Bug performed flawlessly and as hoped for. I've had the Lightning Bug for 6 days now and I was more than ecstatic after seeing the results after downloading the photos on the computer last Saturday. I was very disappointed after trying a different brand lightning sensor and returning it but after conferring with a B&H specialist, the Lightning Bug was recommended. I could not be more pleased and am thinking of purchasing another for my other camera when lightning strikes are appearing in different locations at the same time. After seeing my photos and me explaining the ease of the Lightning Bug's setup and use to others, they too have ordered it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! Best on the market, hands-down. If you'd rather get excellent shots, rather than 10,000 shots of nothing, this is the right product. After a lot of research, this is the unit for me. It has features that none of the others have - just the idea that I can control my meter on/off function makes this one a winner - no other unit allows me to do that. A huge deciding factor for me was the warranty - even if I back my truck over this thing, they (MK Controls) have me covered with their no-questions-asked replacement policy!
