Nero Trigger - All Things Photography (Part 3)

Here are some performed shots though a show window forming from a decoration each frame turns into a short video using Sony Vegas.

To use laser-activating feature we need a laser beam, so I use the Kaiser Laser pen. Unlike the Photo Trigger which is easy to set up. I decide to make a water drop from the kitchen tap (in daylight). I know that I will have problem but every goes well. I put each glass containing half a liter of water upturn on each side of the sink and one glass will be Nero Trigger and on the other glass I put laser pen (with a backward button). I align the pen to point it toward the drop (using the knife to stop the dropping water and locate the laser points). Then I put Nero Trigger so that the plastic sensor cover is illuminated by laser. The trigger which was set at Laser mode had no delay. It performed surprisingly fast and each single drop activates the camera. You can check the result and adjust the delay. Sutter delay is erased to control the height of the drop.

The shots are illuminated by flash when I move around when the shots are taken. Then I adjust the camera position and realize an interesting thing for the flash is behind the water drop so the captured lights in the water is taken as a round-shaped ripple from the dropped water.

HDR allows you to take 3, 5 or 7 frames in the contact frame of the 1/3rd, 1/2, 1 or 2 stop. The camera shutter is controlled by the trigger. So, it needs to be set to B and the speed is set on the trigger. You can set any speed from 15 seconds and 1/15 seconds as a beginning point. Then, a shot is taken at this speed, next is under exposure mode and then the images on exposure mode. You combine them in your selected HDR program.

I set up a device to form a 5-HDR frame with expected details on Exif will be 1/4 second​​, 1/15 second, 1/8 second, 1/2 second and 1 second, but a series of results which is 0.3 sec, 1/20 sec, 1 / 6 sec, 1/3 sec and 0.9 sec is recorded. It seems like the Exif data made by the DSLR camera at light bulb mode may be a problem and change from brands to brands.

This is the HDR mode performed from an old camera and the personal images (displayed on the right) were integrated in Photomatix.

199$ makes Nero Trigger has the same price with Photo Trigger and a little more than Hahnel Giga T Pro II 120$. However, Photo Trigger has the advantages at cable sensor, so you can put them in more accurate palaces, and it also includes laser-activating mode, it’s more complicated to use and that’s an annoying thing. The Hahnel models lacks in sensor features, but they have better timelapse feature. You can also consider the easy to control TriggerSmart, with small position and laser, but it has a much higher price which is about 345$ and a bulkier companion device.


It’s impossible to deny the previous reviews considering Multi Trigger as a disappointment, but the company has listened to the feedbacks and done a large-scale job which is creating this new version, the one that actually provides easy-handling capability along with a flexible set of feature. Some problems such as the initial-caused problem when using with Pentax and the inability to cancel the long exposure mode can be forgiven for the received benefits considering other aspects. An all-in set of product, unlike its old version (currently registered as dead), is bang for the buck with several photographers requiring high speed.
