Hama has introduced a new addition to its DCC System: the IR Light Sensor Remote. This light /motion sensor is now the fourth type of remote release in the DCC system, joining cable, radio and timer remote shutter releases. Its main areas of use include sports and wildlife photography. The product consists of a transmitter and a receiver, the latter of which connects to the camera via an adapter cable that matches the brand of your camera. The transmitter has to be set up opposite - and at the same height as - the receiver. Both can be mounted on a tripod courtesy of integrated tripod sockets. The remote is priced at €99.00, with extension cables available for €14.99 each.
Hama Press Release
IR Light Sensor Remote Release
At many sports events, light sensors are used to establish the winner via photo finish. Now, Hama is expanding its DCC Remote Release System by an infrared light sensor. The light sensor is now the fourth type of remote release in the DCC system, joining cable, radio and timer remote shutter releases.
It could hardly be easier to use. First select the suitable adapter cable and simply connect the light sensor to the camera. If the cable is too short, it can be extended by five meters (item no. 5215).
Then set up the transmitter and receiver on the same level and wait until the light barrier is crossed, thus releasing the shutter. For a secure positioning, receiver and transmitter can be mounted on a tripod using the integrated 1/4” (6.4 mm) thread. Depending on the light conditions, the distance from the transmitter to the receiver should not exceed five meters.
This light sensor is not only recommended for single shutter release. Time exposure, sequence or delayed shutter release photographs are also possible.
All cameras equipped a remote control input can use the light sensor as an infrared remote control.
