    Pluto VALVE reviews

    Valve is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS THING All I have to say is that if you have seen bad reviews it is because it is operator error and the people�have not taken their time to learn about how to use this system, I was able to get these collissions after the second time trying.� Everything goes by height of the valve, temp of the water and the settings of the pluto�trigger. The quality is fantastic and I am very pleased with it. Only wish the electronic�parts were covered up. Very well made. You must buy the arm that goes with this or you won't be able to use it. The bottom of the arm fits perfectly on my lightstand. I am able to create all sorts of fun images. I am a huge fan of the pluto�trigger. We are having fun with it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well for droplet photos While I really like the Pluto Trigger, the Pluto Valve is not as nice. I would rather see the electronics in a housing. You are working with liquids in the immediate area after all. The switch can easily be bent away from the circuit board and I have to wonder how many times that can happen before it breaks off. I had some problems with getting multiple drops out when I only wanted two. This seems to be related to the delay between drops. If you try for too fast the valve drips. I found that 100 ms delay was about right (for water) for the valve to work correctly and for collisions to occur.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great, but takes some effort to get good results This is a great valve, but takes patience and a methodical approach to get the collisions dialed in.  With help from Youtube I was getting 2 drop collisions my first session.  I got the results shown in the pics after a week of intense work and help from Corrie Whites eBook on setup and liquid mixtures.  The only down side so far is the exposed circuit board.  Its held in place with double sided tape and worked loose after several days.  I put a rubber band on it and it seems fine.
