Some of you may remember that we wrote about the Nero Trigger last August. This was a sensor-laden device whose purpose was to help you capture photographs of events that are too quick to catch with even the fastest trigger finger. Well there’s a new generation of the gadget out, and this is what the company has to say about it:
It has now a color LCD screen which increases usability compared to the previous version. Every piece of information you need will be displayed to you right on the screen. NeroTrigger features two new modes: HDR (High Dynamic Range) and DIY (Do It Yourself) HDR mode will let you to get different exposures without an hassle and DIY mode will bring you countless options to show your creativity. NeroTrigger is now much more stable as analog controls have been totally eliminated. Everything is digital, everything is accurate.
I have one that I’m supposed to be reviewing, and haven’t had time to put through its paces properly. I can say, however, that I got a few shots out and that it does indeed work as advertised. There’s some fine-tuning to do to synchronize the event you want to capture with the selected trigger (be it sound, light or through the cutting of a laser), but the fact that there’s an LCD to navigate the menus does make the task easier.
It attaches to the hot-shoe of your camera, and at $200, is a worthwhile investment for the photographer looking to shoot what’s gone in the blink of an eye.
