Host of The Camera Store TV (TCSTV), Chris Niccolls, has seemingly gone a little stir crazy while his Video Producer and bosom buddy, Jordan Drake, is out of town. To help him past the time, Chris takes a few old cameras, a large caliber rifle, and a Cognisys StopShot camera triggering system for a little hands-on field mayhem... I mean testing. Watch as Chris fires a few rounds, decimates a few cameras, and scores a few snapshots.
From the perspective of someone who isn't actually interested in this kind of photography or triggering system, this video can feel a little long-winded, but I love Chris' reviews, and he does reward my patience with some good ol' fashion, high velocity destruction. Kidding aside, if you are into taking high-speed photography, then this review of the StopShot controller is very thorough.
The Stopshot has programmable outputs, is configurable, accepts a variety of different sensor inputs, including infrared beams, lasers, sound, and more. Several flashes can be set off of this thing from one output. Its timers can be adjusted to manual or sequential, time-lapses, and long exposure. In truth, I glazed over a lot of the finer details, but that is what Chris is for. By the way, if you're super sensitive to the presence of firearms, you can skip to the 8:00 minute mark, where Chris tests out the StopShot with some heart-racing water droplet action.
