MK Controls Lightning Bug Overview

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 Sony 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.

question

The Sony A58 was not listed under the camera models it works with. Will it work with the A58?
Asked by: Anonymous
The MK Controls Lightning Bug Shutter Trigger with Cable for Select Sony Cameras (B&H # MKLIBUGK8) as packaged would not be compatible for use with the Sony Alpha a58 Digital Camera. If you wish, you may purchase the Vello 2.5mm Remote Shutter Release Cable for Select Sony Cameras with Multi-Terminal, B&H # VERCCS225, to use the above trigger with your camera. The other option would be to purchase the Vello FreeWave Stryker Lightning & Motion Trigger Kit for Select Nikon & Sony Cameras, B&H # VERCLMSNK, which would include the correct cable for compatibility with the Sony a58 Digital Camera, and would also be a lightning/motion trigger.
