The Lightning Bug Shutter Trigger with Cable for Select Nikon 10-pin 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: Nikon: D100, D200, D300, D300s, D700, D800, D800E, D1, D1X, D1H, D2H, D2X, D2XS, D3, D3s, D3X, D4, D4S, F6, F5, F100, F90, F90X

Lightning Bug Shutter Trigger with Cable for Select Nikon 10-pin Cameras is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!!! I looked at all of the competing products. This is the best one, hands down. The buttons are waterproof, most of the others seem to have buttons that would be susceptible to water intrusion. The price is great. It even has a metal flash foot with a lock. I called their support line and got an actual human on the first try! They were very helpful with their suggestions. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Deal Got ths to use for lightning photos. Found out just how useful it could be for time lapse and delay as well. The way it is built makes it basically weather proof. Price isn't bad either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great - Lots of Functions I've only used the trigger once so I still have a lot to learn, but I was able to catch several flashes, so for its primary use, getting lightning photos, it's great. The Bug enabled me to set the sensitivity where I needed it for the lightning. I assume it will work well for fireworks which I'll try on new years, though I haven't had trouble manually shooting fireworks in the past, but I'm eager to see what happens. It's build, making it basically weather proof is a good addition, but for my use, the rain hadn't gotten to me, so how good it's weather proofing is, isn't known for sure yet. The one concern I have is the metal foot with lock to set it in the camera accessory shoe. I would have preferred a heavy-duty non-conductive foot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Greta product, fun to use Does what it says! Great during day/dusk. And at night too, since in my part of the world the lightning strikes in a lightning storm have great gaps in time, so this is better than time exposure.� Do read the explanation of how to read or set sensitivity setting carefully! BTW, the manual says what buttons to press to test that it fires the camera...� But for an end-to-end test you can point an infrared TV remote at it (press any button on the remote) as it's the infra-red that happens in advance of a bolt that mainly triggers this unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has a surprising amount of functions! This lightning trigger gives you a ton of control (sensitivity to IR, frames per second, shutter delay settings for fireworks) over your photos. Seems to trigger well (I've only had an opportunity to try it once and during the day) and easy to use. I'm excited to try it again.
