AEO Photo MultiTrigger Pro 4.0 Overview

The Lightning Strike! MultiTrigger Pro 4.0 Lithium Shutter Trigger from AEO Photo is a light-activated camera triggering device to capture images of lightning, fireworks, gunfire and other light-generating events. The MultiTrigger Pro also provides a motion activated trigger to release the camera's shutter upon detection of movement within a 135º field of view.

It improves upon version 3.0 with the inclusion of a new Lithium 14500 rechargeable battery that, along with the unit's low power consumption, enables up to 180 hours continuous operation on a single charge. The MultiTrigger Pro 4.0 model provides built-in battery charging capability via its USB Micro B input which features an internal charge safety circuit. The unit can also be powered by the USB connection while charging or without batteries installed. A low battery LED indicator is provided

Also, a low profile "positive action" switch design prevents accidental activation, optimized noise immunity reduces unwanted firings and a fast 0.3 ms trigger lag time serves to capture shots that might otherwise be missed. The MultiTrigger Pro model features a manual sensitivity control override for exacting control of trigger activation. 

The MultiTrigger Pro is very compact, measuring just 2.75" long and attaches directly to your camera's hot shoe mount and offers a locking hot shoe and tripod mount. Its 2.5mm built-in connector accepts cables (sold separately) from numerous cameras. Proprietary electronics allow for image review after every shot and a low profile LED minimizes reflection of light when used shooting through windows and windshields.

Operates on a single Lithium-Ion 14500 (AA) 3.6V rechargeable battery (included). Low power design enables up to 180 hours of continuous shooting on single charge. The Pro model includes a built-in USB Micro B charging port. The USB connection can power the unit and charge the battery during operation and a low battery warning indicator is supported

I bought your trigger for use with Olympus M1-Mk1 and works fine. upgraded to a M1 MKII and the cable doesn't work. Do you make a cable that will work with the Olympus M1 MkII?
Asked by: Johnny
The Vello 2.5mm Remote Shutter Release Cable for Cameras with 2.5mm Sub-Mini Connections, B&H # VERCCC125, lists the OM-D E-M1 Mark II as compatible. This cable should work. https://bhpho.to/2fBJTVB

I have the MultiTrigger Pro and cable that is for the Nikon d750. I now have the Nikon d850 (purchased from B&H, of course) and I can't find a cable for the d850 on any options menu. Contacted AEO directly but get no response (customer service is non-existent as far as I am concerned). I now have an expensive piece of equipment that I can not use. Hoping my go to guys at B&H can help. Is there a cable for the d850?

question

What camera settings do you recommended for daytime shots of lightning?
Asked by: John
There are no hard rules set in stone for lighting photography. However, there are things you may do to make it easier, depending on your equipment. Basic recommendations would be to set the ISO as low as it can go on your camera, usually between ISO 50 to ISO 200, depending on the camera. You'll also want to use a small aperture, both for depth-of-field & to assist in not overexposing the image when using slower shutter speeds. All of this requires experimentation, as every situation is different, and ambient light levels may differ and change. An aperture of f/8 or smaller would be recommended, though f/11 and f16 are popular. Shutter speed recommendation will depend on your equipment. If you are only using your camera, tripod, and a cable release, then I would try shutter speeds between 1/15 sec to 1/4 of a second (or slower, if possible), though you would want to try to set your exposure to get a decent exposure of the scene/foreground, and let the lightning capture itself. You do not want to overexpose the scene, so practice would be required, and it may take a few shots to find an optimum setting during one storm. If you would like longer shutter speeds so you may use your shutter open longer for more strikes. you may use a neutral density filter, which would let you use shutter speeds from a second to 15 seconds without overexposing your scene. If you use a lightning trigger, you may not need as long of a shutter speed.Summing up the above, use the lowest ISO possible, use an aperture of f/8 or smaller, and a shutter speed of 1/15 sec to 1/4 sec if you are not using an ND filter, and 1 second to 15 seconds if using an ND filter, depending on its density. IF using a lightning trigger, you can just use the camera's lowest ISO, then set the camera to Shutter-Priority Mode and set the shutter speed between 1/15 sec to 1/4 sec. The trigger will trip the shutter and the camera should set the appropriate aperture for the scene while still capturing the lightning.

question

Has anyone measured the response time? It claims 0.3 ms but using a flash to trigger it I'm getting well over 100 ms. Trigger delay plus the shutter delay on the A7Rii is about 230 ms, the shutter is less than half of the total.
Asked by: Monte
When using the trigger by itself it will have the least amount of delay(0.3ms). Other devices connected to the AEO Photo Lightning Strike! MultiTrigger Pro 4.0 Lithium Shutter Trigger, end up causing more delay.

question

What is the range for motion detection?
Asked by: Richard A.
Daylight I got the same results. That was me walking into the Trigger Zone , not sure if a tiny Hummingbird will trigger it. They are very fast! If you have your camera close to the feeding area, prefocused and filling the frame with one of these birds, i bet it would trigger prior to the HB entering the viewfinder and continue to fire the camera until the HB stops moving or leave the Trigger Zone . This is just a guess....
