Nero Trigger - All Things Photography (Part 1)

Contributing to our comment in a recent research about Nero Multi Trigger, the chaps who rebuilt the entire utilities and now we’re looking for a much smarter and extensively improved device which is used to shoot fast-moving subjects using the sound, laser or light sensor, as well as improved timelapse feature and new HDR mode.

The same to the prior Nero Multi Trigger models, the new Nero Trigger is compatible to most of the camera systems including Nikon (MC-30), Nikon (MC-DC1), Nikon (MC-DC2), Sony (A Series), Canon (RS-80N3) and Canon (2.5 mm), the testing process here uses SLR Pentax and Olympus cameras together with an adaptor.

The trigger here goes with a flash cable and a camera cable for your selection.  The container has been redesigned and the instruction leaflet is even easier to follow than the previous Multi Trigger models. And now you have a right to choose colors. When I wrote this review, I was accidentally put in an orange color having the shape which was very similar to the product, and that’s an incidental coincidence. You won’t force me to wear a pink one, but considering the colors, there will be red, green, black and blue versions as other choices for you.

The front control panel has 2 obvious marked buttons for menu and rebooting process, along with 4 separate controlling buttons. Here will be setting mode and fine-tuning adjustment that is performed. The small LCD displaying the modes and different settings is adjustable.

Surrounding one side is an on/off switch and a socket for the external cable when using at DIY mode.

On the opposite side, there’re connectors for Flash and Camera cable. All are marked clearly.

When turning the device on, at first you will see the flash of the screen control panel and a few minutes later it begins to function, with the same graphic quality as an old Nintendo Game Boy screen, despite smaller.

The screen lists the modes, with Lightning as the default one, and then you can move through the sound, Timelapse, Laser, HDR folders and DIY modes, using the, left or right button. Pressing up or down (or the start button)and you will step into the process of mode setting, here you will have to move up or down to choose and adjust the value using left or right options.

It’s actually easy to know how to do it, unlike the previous Nero Multi Trigger models or the recent Photo Trigger model, both need manual instruction. The screen will be off after 30 seconds if there’s no operation as a feature helping to save the battery. Though, the battery is still being on duty, so it’s better to turn it off if you don’t use in a longer time.

If you press and hold the down button, it starts to make the speed-adjusting value slower and increase the speed when you hold it longer.

The support allows you to mount it to the camera support conveniently. It’s small enough to fit in a pocket but the frame that attaches it in seems to be bulky. A tripod may be useful, especially when using laser trigger where you can activate the camera remotely with 90 degree angle. Using in a longer time, removing the tripod will make it more flexible.

Unlike the Photo Trigger, there’s no pasta-like cables form the bundled sensors. All are mounted from the inside, except for the laser mode, which you will need to buy to take advantages of. A standard laser pen will work. This makes it actually neat for using, but less flexible if you want to place sound or light sensor at strategic location.
