The Strike Finder™ Elite is the top of the line in our camera trigger line-up. It boasts four sensors making it one of the best camera triggers on the market today.

It is designed to be triggered by lightning, lasers, motion or sound.

When in Lightning mode, it can capture lightning day or night depending on how far the storm is. Additionally, it boasts a new sensitivity adjustment allowing you to adjust how sensitive it responds to lightning strikes. Since lightning strikes can last for several hundred milliseconds (ms) and contain dozens of strokes, the Strike Finder™ Elite has plenty of opportunity to catch the ultimate strike. The device senses and triggers the lightning in 1ms!

The Laser Trigger was designed to capture anything that breaks the beam from water droplets to people walking through it. Once the laser has been tripped, the device instantly sends a signal to the camera telling it to release the shutter (external laser pointer required). The shutter releases about 45-60ms later, depending on the camera.

The Sound Trigger allows you to do high speed photography. The sound trigger attachment plugs into the side of the Strike Finder™ Elite with an 18″ cable. When it senses a loud signal, the device sends a signal to your camera to release the shutter.

The Motion Sensor uses a Passive Infrared (PIR) sensor that is capable of detecting motion up to 30 ft away. Once motion is detected, the device will trigger your camera every second or up to every 10 seconds depending on the level you choose! The sensor comes as an attachment that plugs into the side of the Strike Finder™ Elite with an 18″ cable.

• Lightning can be DANGEROUS. Remember Safety First!

•The Strike Finder™ is not waterproof. It should be treated and handled with the care of a camera and should not be dropped and/or exposed to extremes of heat or moisture.
