Electronic Lightning Detector Camera Shutter Trigger (for Canon cameras using the canon N3 3 pin connector interface for external control of the camera's shutter release such as those listed here: EOS 5D, 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D, 50D, D30, D60 1D, 1D MarkII, Mark Ii)
2 Year Warranty on All AEO Photo Products!
Lightning Strike!™ II Electronically triggers the shutter of your digital camera when lightning is detected. Used to photograph lightning or other "fast flash" events (fireworks, etc). Utilizes a proven, proprietary lightning detection design to detect lightning and then trigger your camera's remote shutter trigger to photographically capture lightning. Incorporates a "fast" isolated relay to fully protect and totally isolate your camera from the detector's electronics. Fast detection electronics activate your camera's shutter mechanism in 0.1 milliseconds.
Lightning Strike!™ II comes complete with our custom made cable specific for your camera type, 9V battery, and instructions for use. ALL AEOPHOTO PRODUCTS INCLUDE A 2 YEAR WARRANTY AGAINST MANUFACTURING DEFECTS.
Version II Enhancements:
Multi-Cable / Camera Capability is now STANDARD - All units now include a standard 2.5mm interface that accepts ANY of our cables available for a wide variety of cameras. No need to buy another trigger if you have two cameras or when you upgrade to a different model/brand.
New Power Switch Design - Our original "rocker" switch design was prone to accidental "turn-ons" when packed in your camera case, draining the battery while in storage. (Interestingly, our competitors copied that design flaw!) Version II incorporates a new "positive action", low profile slide switch that WILL NOT activate accidentally in your camera case.
We've also incorporated a number of proprietary changes that significantly improved our manufacturing producibility, allowing us to continue to offer a great product at an affordable, competitive price.
- Day or night detection of fast lightning events
- 0.1 ms response (lag) time from lightning event to triggering of shutter
(Your camera's added shutter lag time will vary depending on camera type)
- Includes standard hot shoe mount for most SLR/DSLR cameras
- Includes cable and interface plug for cameras listed on this website
- Low Profile "Positive Action" Power Slide Switch (New in Version II) will NOT activate in your camera bag
- 2.5mm Built-In Connector accepts any of our Version II cables available for a wide variety of cameras
- New, solid built, custom enclosure manufactured exclusively for AEO Lightning Strike!™ II
- Includes Duracell 9V battery
The AEO Lightning Strike!™ II Camera Shutter Trigger is the creation of two electro-optics engineers / "photographers" (father/son). We first started offering it to our photographer friends, and as the demand increased, we're now offering it to all "lightning photographers" at a competitive, affordable price. After a year of selling triggers, AEO Photo has established itself as a reputable, stable business that can be expected to honor and support our many hundreds of customers. Few of our competitors can both offer and be expected to honor a 2 YEAR WARRANTY of their products.
Lightning Strike!™ II is the perfect digital camera accessory for either the expert, severe weather professional photographer, or the amateur backyard lightning photographer. Never before has this technology been offered at such an economical price by a reputable manufacturer. We’re confident you will agree that there is no better value amongst lightning trigger products.
ALWAYS REMEMBER – Lightning can be DANGEROUS. Never expose yourself to lightning at close proximity!
