Triggertrap brings high speed photography zooming to a camera near you

If your attempts at capturing balloons bursting, glass shattering, or droplets forming a perfect corona have been less than successful until now, the team at Triggertrap—who love to find creative ways to let you trigger your camera—might just have a solution for you. Not only have they succeeded in making Triggertrap Mobile's triggering system upto 12 times faster (from 60 milliseconds to five milliseconds depending on your device), but they've released the Triggertrap Flash Adapter, too.

By combining a new Triggertrap Flash Adapter with a Triggertrap Mobile Dongle, an iOS device running Triggertrap for Mobile, and a hot shoe-compatible flash (there wouldn't be much flash photography going on without one), you should be capable of freezing motion, however fast it's happening.

Set yourself up in a darkened room with your camera on a long exposure, your camera and flash ready to trigger using one of Triggertrap's firing mechanisms, and whatever you're trying to capture at high speed, and off you go!

If you want to see the Flash Adapter in action, there's a video waiting for your perusal:

Or you could just head over to the Triggertrap store and order one. They're retailing at $29.95 - but remember that you'll need the mobile dongle and the app running on your smartphone, too.

AoP Awards winners


In case you missed it, the Association of Photographers held their annual awards last week, which honours professional photographers and their work – both commissioned and non-commissioned – across genres including advertising, portraits, and editorial. So as to keep up with the changes that are being made to cameras, and specifically to cover video capability, the AoP introduced the Moving Image category this year, too.

Almost 3,000 images and videos were submitted by nearly 400 entrants. There were 17 ‘Best in Categories’ and three Gold awards. A few of them are here for your perusal. Enjoy!
