  • Pluto Trigger

    Take the guesswork out of triggering a camera with the features of the Pluto Trigger. It has the ability to function as either a simple infrared remote or it can connect to a smartphone over Bluetooth 4.0 LE for programming and setup of advanced modes. This provides users with a plethora of options and sensors to help them record time lapses, fast-moving subjects, and much more. The Pluto Trigger features multiple built-in sensors, including light, sound, and infrared, as well as an aux port for attaching other sensors. This can dramatically speed up response times to certain subjects, allowing the capture of balloons popping, lightning strikes, and more. This is augmented by the various intervalometer settings for creating specific shooting settings for your scene and the ability to use the sensors of your phone to access other, more unique triggering modes.

    The Pluto Trigger features a standard 2.5mm camera connection that allows users to pick up different cables to work with their cameras. Also, this port can be used to connect a flash with the included PC sync cord. Alongside these ports is a micro-USB connection, which is how users can charge the built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery, which can run for about 20 hours with normal usage.

    General Features
    • Can trigger a camera via an infrared remote and the physical shutter release button or by using an optional connection cable.
    • Connects to smart devices using the iOS/Android mobile app via Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy with a range of about 66'.
    • Status LED will alert you to the current settings, battery life, and connectivity strength.
    • Built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery offers a normal life of about 20 hours or 40 hours when Bluetooth is turned off.
    • Offers a 2.5mm aux input for using optional sensors.
    • The 2.5mm camera output can also be used to connect a flash via the included PC sync cable.
    Intervalometer Modes
    • Shutter Release: For simple triggering of your camera, this mode offers a variety of options on how to trigger your camera. This includes single shot, focus (press to focus, release to take a photo), hold (press to open shutter, release to end exposure), lock (press to open shutter, press again to close shutter), bulb, burst, and timed.
    • Time-Lapse: Set the Pluto Trigger to take a set number of photos with a preset time interval and an optional start delay. It can use either your camera settings or perform bulb-ramping for more advanced time lapses.
    • HDR: Shoot up to 19 photos for an HDR sequence with exposure step values between 1/3 to 3 stops.
    • Star Trail: Create long exposures of the night sky for clear images with star trails.
    • Video: Use the Pluto Trigger to automatically start recording again once you hit your camera's recording time limit.
    • Timer: Set the trigger to take photos or record video at a specific time each day for long-term projects.
    Pluto Sensors
    • Laser: Using the included laser pointer in combination with the trigger's light sensor, users will be able to create a setting that will trigger the camera when the laser beam is broken. This has a response time of tens of microseconds.
    • Sound: Trigger your camera upon hearing a sound, such as popping a balloon or breaking glass. This mode allows users to set sensitivity and delay for achieving the appropriate response time.
    • Light: Triggers the camera when the light sensor notices an increase or decrease in ambient light.
    • Lightning: Quickly triggers the camera when it senses a bright flash of light.
    • Infrared: Triggers the camera when there is a change in infrared emissions, such as from a passing animal or person.
    • Droplet: When the trigger is connected to the optional Valve Kit users can easily capture water droplets through a pre-programmed method.
    • Aux: Users can attach various sensors to the trigger's 2.5mm aux port to trigger the camera with various other methods.
    • Fusion: Combine various sensors together to create a more specialized setting for your specific shoot.
    Smart Sensors
    • Sound: Users can use the microphone in their smartphone to trigger a camera when a sound is heard.
    • Vibrate: Using the accelerometer of your phone, this mode will trigger the camera when vibration hits a pre-determined threshold.
    • Motion: By using the camera of your smartphone users can create a setup that will trigger the camera when motion is detected in front of your smartphone's camera.
    • Distance: This mode will capture photos as you travel over distance using your smartphone's GPS. This prevents unnecessary photos from being captured when you stop.
    • Voice: Users can use the voice command "Pluto" regardless of ambient noise levels to trigger the camera remotely.
    • Smile: Take selfies easily by using the camera of your smartphone to tell the trigger when you are smiling.
    • Depth of Field: This calculator will determine the hyperfocal distance based on the lens focal length, aperture, and camera type.
    • Sun Position: Provides official and civil sunrise and sunset times based on your current location and local time. Two countdown clocks are available to shoe upcoming events.
    • ND Filter Calculator: Calculate the correct exposure time when using neutral density filters. It uses the filter strength and current shutter speed to provide an accurate shutter speed.
    • Starscape Rule: By selecting your camera model and actual focal length this tool will calculate the slowest shutter speed possible for sharp, pinpoint stars. Users can select Rule of 500 or Rule of 400 based on the speed of stars in their location.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Haven't had this much fun since I was a kid at Christmas! I have only used the intervalometer and lightning features using my iPhone 6 and on my Sony RX10 III and Sony A7 II and got outstanding results. The options with in each mode are numerous and a little experimentation is helpful. But that is what I like to do, is play around with it. I used the intervalometer to record 2500 photos, 1/sec. to do a movie of clouds over Pikes Peak, using PowerDirector 14 and got very good results. I also set it up in my living room during a thunderstorm and set the timer for 1 hour. Had to experiment a little on exposure and sensitivity of the Pluto trigger, and I ended up with spectacular results. It even took daylight photos of lightning! I can't wait to experiment with Startrails, motion detection (using the provided laser), sound detection, and vibration detection. Popping balloons should be fun, there are a number of high speed photography applications. According to the FAQ in the Pluto app, the sound and light modes have a response time of 1ms. Lightning response time is 0.2 sec, and in Laser mode, tens of micro-seconds. You can download the app for IOS and Android and peruse the manual to see just how powerful and flexible this small gadget is. It also answers many questions I've seen posted. You don't need to own the trigger in order to download it. A very helpful feature is that, although a bluetooth connection is used between phone and the Pluto Trigger, for intervalometer work you can walk away with your phone and let the camera do it's work. This doesn't apply, however to Smart Sensor modes, which use the sensors in your phone in order to work. I happen to have an old iPhone 5 that I can leave by my camera, if need be. I would certainly recommend this to anyone who loves to play with and experiment with their camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Puluto Trigger a winner I ordered the Pluto Trigger and it arrived as promised and worked as promised. This trigger has so many features and can not wait to learn them all. I used it for some star shots right out of the box and it worked great. The one drawback is that there is a lack of directions available to some of the advanced features I tried. I will figure them out and am sure they will work great. I am very happy with this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very cool toy Works as advertised, giving the user a number of ways to activate a shutter release - sound, light, laser, etc. I'm kind of a lightning buff, so I'm looking forward to trying it out during the next storm. The time lapse and star trails will be fun too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleased with the trigger. The Pluto trigger works as advertised. I have mostly used the sound and voice functions so far and they are reliable.
