Win over $400 in Promote Control [Digital SLR Camera Remote Control] + Accessories!

WINNER: Bob Mishkin! Be a winner yourself by using the promotional code “FSTOPPERS” at and get 10% off your entire purchase when buying a Promote Control for the next 2 weeks!

Designed for serious amateurs and pros, Promote® Control is an advanced bracketing remote control for digital SLR cameras that was successfully used in high-profile productions such as the recently released movie "Beautiful Creatures" distributed by Warner Bros. and the BBC series "Wild Arabia" (click here to see the press release)! Now we want to give you the chance to win one.

With its superior automation and intuitive ease-of-use, it opens new doors for your creativity. It will have you taking High Dynamic Range (HDR) photographs, time-lapse sequences and much more in a flash.

Here is what you can do with the Promote Control:
- Time-Lapse
- Bulb Ramping
- Focus Stacking
- One Shot

With the Promote Control, you can gain unprecedented, advanced control over your DSLR like bracketing up to 45 images, or shooting as many as 9 EV steps between exposures. No camera can be that flexible!

Where most DSLRs have shutter speeds that end at 30 seconds, the Promote Control allows you to choose exposures well past that – even up to several hours if you wish. You are no longer required to manually time every long exposure in bracketing – the Promote Control will do it for you!

Compatible with most Nikon, Canon and some Sony DSLR cameras.

Let the Promote Control provide you with the endless possibilities to create your next masterpiece!

"The Promote is really the only way to collect professional HDR photography. Using anything else would be a foolish waste of time. I wouldn't dare using anything else to trigger my camera," – says digital effects artist Scott Metzger who used the Promote Control to shoot 3D HDR scenery for the movie "Beautiful Creatures" (Here you can see a presentation on how he worked on special effects for the movie).

$299? LOL, there are gadgets that do the same thing for $60 on ebay. :S

I've purchased many intervalometers from eBay over the years, but none that do bulb ramping, or that have the apparent build quality of the Promote. That said, if you can post a link I'll buy a few! :)

that remote does not offer bulb ramping

Nikon only...

The Trigger Trap App does all that and more. You can trigger your camera using an iPhone, iPad, iPod, or Android. The App is free and the Dongle and cable is $29.95.

Not to take away from Triggertrap, but I could not for the life of me get it to work right. I spent a month working with the TT team to figure it out and it still misfired like crazy. I gave up.

Hello, I am Zach from Promote Systems. Thank you for your comment.

TriggerTrap is indeed a nice addition to the camera's functionality by triggering the camera from a smartphone via a shutter cable.

However, this is exaclty why it has limited functionality compared to the Promote Control, where the camera is controlled by both USB AND shutter cables. Therefore, it allows bracketed exposures ranging from 1/8000 seconds up to hours with variable EV stepping and up to 40 frames in a bracket. With TriggerTrap it is harder to shoot HDR brackets in daylight because the fastest shutter speed is quite limited. Moreover, you can easily
shoot HDR-Time Lapses or do Focus Stacking and Bulb Ramping. Moreover, with the Promote Control you can easily pair it with an external pano head or dolly and shoot HDR
brackets instead of single shots. And, of course, you can also control shutter speed, aperture and ISO in Single Shot mode. I invite you to visit our page to discover full capabilities of the Promote Control.

Thank you for your attention and please feel free to ask any questions to our Support desk:
