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.

Multi-cameras for 3D photography

I wanted a way to fire multiple Sony RX0ii cameras and found that triggering them with splitter cables wasn’t very reliable. I thought about making a multi camera control box, but then found the Trigger Box doing a Google search. I ordered the box and some sync cables and everything arrived to my home in the U.S. in just a few days. It looks well made. I wish it had an internal rechargeable battery. I’m using an external USB battery to power the unit. I expect that all my usage will be in the field away from an AC power source. I’m looking forward to trying the unit and perhaps trying to fire a flash in sync with my camera by setting some software delays.

Hi, thanks very much for your review of your recent order. It's much appreciated you giving us 5 stars. Many of our clients have switched from their house-made multi-camera triggers to our hardware and found it a lot more reliable, accurate and also suitable for lighting control. I hope the TriggerBox is coming in useful for you, and if you ever need any further advice or help please don't hesitate to ask! - Albert

Esper Boxes with Sony Cameras

I am happy to say that I was able to successfully get multiple Sony A7R2 cameras triggering and simultaneously sending data to my PC with the help of Esper boxes and CaptureGRID 4 from Kuvacode. The process was very simple to setup and while the full feature set of CaptureGRID 4 is limited on Sony cameras, I have all of the functionality in place that I currently need. Thanks again for your help!
