Precise and reliable. It’s the worlds most trusted multi-camera trigger. Fire all your cameras at once or at custom intervals. Used for photogrammetric 3D scanning and bullet-time photography. 

) [1] => Array ( [icon] => triggerbox-camera [heading] => Designed for all multi-camera applications [content] =>

The ESPER TriggerBox is perfect for any application that requires the accurate control of multiple camera arrays such as:

  • Photogrammetry
  • Bullet time and time slice
  • Photo booths
  • Stop motion animation
  • Animated photography
  • VFX
  • Imaging research
) [2] => Array ( [icon] => camera [heading] => Every camera precisely synchronised [content] =>

When the TriggerBox switch is green the delay between the input signal received and the outputs firing is 2µS (0.000002 seconds.)*. ESPER TriggerBox guarantees reliable and absolute triggering precision over a USB connection.

*Note that the shutter lag of most DSLR’s ranges from 0.04 to 0.150 seconds.

) [3] => Array ( [icon] => triggermodes [heading] => Two powerful trigger modes [content] =>

The TriggerBox has two modes of operation, When the mode switch is Green the TriggerBox functions as a straight trigger distribution unit. When the mode switch is Blue the TriggerBox can be programmed using the TriggerBoxController software. This allows individual outputs to be delayed, switched off and on and sequenced in up to 8 steps.

) [4] => Array ( [icon] => triggerbox-controller [heading] => TriggerBox Controller software [content] =>

The TriggerBox comes bundled with our TriggerBoxController software, this allows the TriggerBox to be programmed to: fire the TriggerBox outputs over USB, assign delays to outputs, toggle outputs off and on, sequence all output settings, save settings to the TriggerBox for stand alone operation, and multi-camera intervalometer with exposure ramping.

For control of camera settings, downloading images etc. you will need to use a third party software packages such as:

  • Breeze Systems – Software to control multiple Canon SLRs from a single PC running Windows. Designed for movie special effects such as the “bullet time”, stereo video capture, product shots and other specialist applications requiring multiple cameras. Offers excellent support and is licensed per number of cameras.
  • Kuvacode CaptureGRID – Multi-camera control software for tethered shooting, remote capture and advanced camera control. Widely used for photogrammetry applications. Supports all recent DSLR cameras from Canon and Nikon, as well as some cameras from the Sony Alpha range and runs on Windows, macOS, and Linux. Annual subscription license per unlimited number of cameras.
  • Xangle Camera Server – A set of software created to run a complete multi-camera system: connect, control, trigger, calibrate, preview, publish, share. Compatible with most Canon entry-level DSLR’s and runs from a PC running Windows. Different license subscription packages available.

Never Fails

Our photography company has been using ESPER TriggerBoxes and Power cells for over 3 years to expand our product line. Those new products on are now our MOST profitable to date. These things work all the time every time. I have put thousands upon thousands of shots through and not a single issue with the TriggerBoxes or Power cell. We've never had an issue from an ESPER product. You may never have to replace one unless you're upgrading. When we are in the field for our largest corporate clients, ESPER TriggerBoxes perform.

Love it

So far so good but, I think when you send the package you need to send the manuals too

ESPER

Hi, thank you for purchasing ESPER TriggerBox! The product manuals are currently being developed. However, we have just set-up an after order email containing all the necessary information on how to get started with the TriggerBox. All the guides can be also accessed from our support centre at http://support.esperhq.com/support/solutions. - Albert

ESPER TriggerBoxes are perfect for triggering multi-camera arrays using the Breeze software. We recommend ESPER to all our customers.
