Benefitting photographing lightning, this Lightning Bug Shutter Trigger with Cable Kit from B&H bundles the Lightning Bug trigger along with a cable for select Olympus 3-Pin cameras.
MK Controls Lightning Bug Shutter Trigger
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.
