London, UK (PRWEB) October 15, 2013
Triggertrap, developer of creatively-thrilling camera triggering solutions which eliminate the barriers to exciting photographic techniques, today announced its latest Kickstarter campaign to support the next generation of camera triggering technology from the boffins at the Triggertrap skunk works. Its latest invention is the Triggertrap Redsnap (short URL: tri.gg/kick), an infinitely expandable modular triggering system that puts high-speed lasers, motion sensors and sound triggers in the camera bag of every photographer at a fraction of the price of currently available accessories.
The Kickstarter campaign will bring Redsnap into the hands of professional and enthusiast photographers everywhere. Campaign backers will be rewarded not only with bragging rights as early adopters, but with cool wallet-jamming savings with backer packages being offered at about half of the anticipated retail price. With an array of funding options, backers will find several prepackaged kits available for their individual photographic needs ranging from the Timelapse Kit (£35) to a Wildlife Kit (£120) and multiple all-inclusive kits (£125-£190). For those backers that simply can’t wait to get their hands on Redsnap, top backers will earn special Queue Jumper status (£1,000), and be eligible for one of the extremely limited pre-production prototypes.
With each of its successive projects Triggertrap has continued to break down the traditional barriers to entry of creative photography techniques. The very company itself was brought to life compliments of the Kickstarter faithful back in 2011 with the launch of the Triggertrap v1. More recently, the company developed Triggertrap Mobile, which became tremendously popular. With Redsnap, Triggertrap is continuing to democratize once-complex, virtually unreachable photography techniques.
"We were extremely fortunate to have the community’s support for our first Kickstarter campaigns, and the support of our backers has not only provided the initial funding for multiple Triggertrap projects, but has been a point of inspiration that keeps us reaching for the next innovation," said CEO and Triggertrap inventor Haje Jan Kamps. "If you thought Triggertrap v1 and Triggertrap Mobile opened your eyes to new techniques, Redsnap will leave you dizzy with creative options."
Redsnap for High-Speed Flights of Fancy
Want to capture darts popping balloons, or the aggression-relief of smashing glass bottles with a hammer? These are techniques that traditionally would require numerous expensive tools; with Triggertrap Redsnap this is just the beginning of the brave new photographic world that will avail itself. How about speeding bullets, elusive night-stalking wildlife, or month-long timelapses? That’s the ticket.
The sensor modules are interchangeable, configurations are endlessly expandable, so they can be snapped on when needed, tucked away when not, or daisy-chained together for the unique triggering demands of just about any shoot.
Redsnap features three outputs, to hook up three cameras, three flashes or a combination of both. It also has a special connector allowing it to talk to the best-selling Triggertrap Mobile iOS and Android app, which features 14 additional triggering functions.
Geek Out with Some Redsnap Functionality
As a modular system, each kit builds off Redsnap, which on its own is a powerful camera triggering tool, and then snaps on additional blocks for laser sensors, infrared motion sensors and much more. The ability to make completely customizable combinations makes Redsnap one of the fastest, easiest to use and most affordable high-speed flash and camera triggers that money can’t buy…at least not yet.
Features of the Redsnap base block include:
Triggertrap is continuing to develop new sensor blocks, but at launch, the initial lineup includes:
As a product still under development, Triggertrap Redsnap is subject to revisions before final availability.
Triggertrap Ltd was founded in 2011, and was brought to life through crowd-funding site Kickstarter. Based in the UK, the company’s flagship smartphone-based camera triggering solution, Triggertrap Mobile, has been downloaded more than half a million times and their triggers are in use by thousands of photographers in more than a hundred different countries.
