New High-End Remote Trigger Released By Ubertronix

If you think you've got a quick trigger finger, then you haven't used the new Strike Finder Touch (SFT) by Ubertronix. This sleek remote trigger boasts the ability to trigger your camera  shutter in less than 1 millisecond. The device has 5 different modes: Time Lapse, Lightning (or high speed flash), laser, sound and motion. All you need is 4 AAA batteries, your camera, and a great subject to get started.

Everything about the SFT is programmable. This includes exposure, number of photos to be taken (while in Time Lapse mode), sensitivity to motion, light and sound, and the delay. The touch screen makes for easy use. 

Here are a few details about each of the different modes: (taken straight from Ubertronix)

The Time Lapse is one of the hallmarks of the Strike Finder TOUCH, it contains all options you’d expect from an intervalometer but also boasts a unique feature that allows a photographer to start time lapse based on external events such as motion, a high-speed flash, sound, etc. Anytime one of these external events occurs, it will take multiple photos based on your setup taking a sequence of pictures from one to several thousand and also lets you adjust the frequency and exposure.
 
Adjustable Settings:
  • Time
  • Exposure
  • Number (number of pictures to take)
Additionally, it has the ability to start time lapse when:
  • Motion is detected
  • Sound is detected 
  • Lightning is detected 
  • Laser beam is broken

When using the Lightning feature, it can capture lightning strikes day or night depending on how far the storm is. Since lightning strikes can last for several hundred milliseconds (ms) and contain dozens of strikes, the Strike Finder TOUCH has plenty of opportunity to catch the lightning bolt. The device is very fast, triggering the camera in less than 1ms!

Adjustable Settings:

  • Delay
  • Sensitivity
  • Number (number of pictures to take)

The Laser Trigger was designed to capture anything that breaks the laser beam from water droplets to insects, to bigger things such as a sprinting runner. Once the laser has been tripped, the device instantly sends a signal to the camera telling it to release the shutter (external laser pointer required).

Adjustable Settings:

  • Delay
  • Sensitivity
  • Number (number of pictures to take)

The Sound Trigger allows you to do high speed photography using sound. The sensor attachment plugs into the side of the Strike Finder TOUCH with an 12″ cable. When it senses a loud sound, the device sends a signal to your camera to release the shutter.

Adjustable Settings:

  • Delay
  • Sensitivity
  • Number (number of pictures to take)

The Motion Trigger uses a passive infrared sensor that is capable of detecting motion of any kind. Once detected, the device will trigger your camera once or multiple times depending on your setup. The sensor comes as an attachment that plugs into the side of the device with an 12″ cable and can be extended with additional extension cables.

Adjustable Settings:

  • Interval (frequency(in seconds) to take pictures while motion is present) 
  • Number (number of pictures to take)

The Strike Finder Touch is currently on sale at B&H for $349.

Very nice! It looks like this device will easily consolidate my trigger collection.
I am curious as to how intuitive the menu system is? How easy is it to make adjustments and change modes?

Impressive. Although device looks very robust and old-school.

These images are really nice, not sure though that they're the best way to show off the product?
With dance, you can get really close with just the eye... would it maybe be better for stuff that moves so fast you can't capture it? ie. a supercar or maybe projectile stuff...? Or even as the blurb suggests, lightning?
Either way, great images!
