Universal Photo Timer Starter Kit

The most common set for high speed photography includes the following components:

1. UPT_KIT1B is a general purpose photographic timer. It can activate camera shutter or flash in response to a trigger with a set delay. The timer emulates Canon RC-1and Nikon ML-L3 infrared remotes, therefore you can operate many cameras directly from the timer.

2. UPT_MIC1 is a standard sensitivity microphone that plugs into the timer. Trigger the timer with loud sounds. The microphone would be used for capturing popping balloons, impacts or used with ballistics.

3. UPT_OS1 is a simple photo-interrupter designed to detect existence/absence of an object. The sensor requires an off the shelf RED laser pointer (not included). To operate it, point the laser light at the side of the sensor (there is a small opening on the side). The timer triggers whenever the beam is interrupted. The sensor is can be used with large and small objects. The sensor can be used to activate your flash or your camera.

4. UPT_HS1. Most of the high speed photography involves the use of a flash. The hot shoe adapter is used to interface your flash to the timer.

The above list is the most cost effective set that should allow you handle many photography projects.
