Over the weekend, I saw an amazing shot of 8 lightning bolts hitting all the supports of the Bay Bridge in San Francisco. If you’d like a chance to capture something equally amazing on film, you may need to add the Nero Multi Trigger to your camera arsenal. The Multi Trigger can sense specific events and automatically fire your SLR/DSLR or lighting system to capture the event. You can trigger on: lightning (day or night), sounds, laser, timer, long exposure, super bulb, or manual trigger. The microcontroller-based Multi Trigger uses 2 AAA batteries, and it attaches to the hot shoe of your Nikon or Canon camera. The unit is the smallest trigger on the market, measuring only 3.34″ X 2.36″ X 1.18″. When you purchase, you’ll select the appropriate connector cable for your camera, and you can purchase additional cables so you can use the Multi Trigger with your other cameras. The Multi Trigger and one cable is $199. There’s also a version that triggers only on lightning flashes for $117.00.
