The best way to trigger multiple camera setup with absolute precision

The ESPER TriggerBox is the world’s leading programmable multiple camera shutter trigger release controller. It allows multiple cameras to be fired simultaneously or with programmed sequences and offsets.

Features & Functionality

Trigger multi camera setups

Up to 6 cameras can be connected to each TriggerBox. Multiple TriggerBoxes can be linked together to synchronise and trigger larger multiple camera setups. TriggerBoxes have been designed to neatly stack together, along with PowerBoxes.

Designed for all multi-camera applications

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

Every camera precisely synchronised

When the TriggerBox switch is green the delay between the input signal received and the outputs firing is 2µS (0.000002 seconds.)*
*Note that the shutter lag of most DSLR’s ranges from 0.04 to 0.150 seconds.

Two powerful trigger modes

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.

TriggerBox Controller software

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
  • 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 those provided by Breeze Systems, Kuvacode and Xangle.

Works smooth in a Breeze Set-Up

We started with one Trigger Box, which worked perfect and is doing exactely what it should. triggering 6 Cameras simultaneously. We have a set-up with multiple cams and trigger boxes, which also works very smooth. Integration with Breezesys Multi Cam is done very well and works through the Breeze Interface, no need for addional software.

Hi Sascha, thank you for taking your time to review. We are glad to hear you are satisfied with our multi-camera trigger :). The Breeze Multi-Camera software includes integrated control for ESPER TriggerBoxes which is why it works so smoothly. - Albert

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.
