The StopShot Beam Kit is an electronic timing system that will allow you to capture events that are too fast to see. High speed photographs can be taken with any camera that has bulb or manual mode. No high speed camera is required.

StopShot is fully user configurable and features 3 completely programmable outputs. There are many different sensors types available including microphones, beam sensors and vibration sensors.

If you already have a camera and external flash this package includes everything you need to get started in high speed photography. This package includes:

  • StopShot High Speed Controller
  • AC Adapter, 240VAC compatible (US, EU, UK or Australian, choose above)
  • An IR or Laser Beam Sensor - choose below (IR Version Pictured)
  • PC to female RCA cable to connect a flash to StopShot
  • Tripod Mounts for transmitter and receiver
  • 6 ft RCA M/M Cable
  • 6 ft 3.5mm M/M Cable to connect beam sensor to StopShot
  • 6 ft 2.5mm M/M Cable to connect transmitter to receiver (power)

Please choose between IR and Laser Transmitter:

The laser sensors are best suited for outdoor work like insects and birds in flight. They have a range of at least 10m, perform very well in bright sunlight, and are visible -- making them easier to align. StopShot has the capability to turn off the lasers before the image is captured so there is no need to worry about getting red dots in your photographs. The IR sensor is best suited for work like water drops and ballistics. It has a wider triggering window so aligning the sensors for small objects is much easier. IR sensors are also better suited for water drops and splashes as the lasers often go right through clear liquids without causing a trigger.

About the StopShot - High Speed Photography Controller

StopShot is a flexible timing module made specifically for taking high speed photographs. With StopShot you can create photos like you see below without having a degree in electrical engineering. All you need is a camera with the BULB exposure setting, an external flash, and the StopShot electronic trigger module. With StopShot you can use a variety of triggers to fire up to three independent electronic devices (flashes, cameras, valves, etc.) at virtually any delay you choose. You can even set it up to do time lapse photography. Click the How To tab to find out what is possible with StopShot.

StopShot Features:

StopShot Controller

  • Fully programmable 3 channel camera trigger for high speed photography.
  • Trigger up to 3 external devices including: flashes, cameras, water valves, solenoids, or any other low voltage electronic device.
  • Several flashes can be fired simultaneously from one Trigger - check out the Flash Splitter.
  • Easy to read 4x20 LCD Display with adjustable back-lighting.
  • StopShot will save your settings between power cycles. No lost setup info.
  • Programmable to perform sequential triggering for complicated triggering sequences.
  • Timers can be adjusted to be manual (on button press), sequential, or event based.
  • Timers can be configured to ignore trigger events for a programmable amount of time (blanking time).
  • Time Lapse Photography Mode.
  • Sound activated triggering. Just add the microphone.
  • Adjustable gain for microphone or analog sensors.
  • Sensor input will accept digital or analog input.
  • Laser power can be turned off after trigger to keep laser light out of photos.
  • Long exposure control of shutter for night-time or astro-photography.
  • One touch Shutter lag measurement capability.
  • Each trigger can generate multiple pulses, great for multiple drops or multiple exposures.
  • Camera "Sync" mode to make synchronizing the flash with your camera's shutter easier.
  • Up to 10 presets for user stored settings. Give your setup's custom names and store them for later use.
  • Auto Increment - A programmable auto increment time increases trigger delay for every event.
  • Sequential mode timeout for taking pictures with an unattended camera.
  • Simple 4 button interface.
  • Durable extruded aluminum housing.

FAQs

Top Customer Questions and Answers (FAQ)

How do I choose between the laser and IR transmitters?
Choose the transmitter type for your beam kit based on your intended application. The laser sensors are best suited for outdoor work like insects and birds in flight. They have a range of at least 10m, perform very well in bright sunlight, and are visible -- making them easier to align. StopShot has the capability to turn off the lasers before the image is captured so there is no need to worry about getting red dots in your photographs. The IR sensor is best suited for work like water drops and ballistics. It has a wider triggering window so aligning the sensors for small objects is much easier. IR sensors are also better suited for water drops and splashes as the lasers often go right through clear liquids without causing a trigger.
Can I fire my camera shutter with StopShot?
Absolutely, but you will need a shutter interface cable to fire your camera. This cable goes between the StopShot output and the camera remote shutter port. Not all applications require camera control though. If you plan to take images of insects and birds in flight with StopShot then you will need camera control. If you plan to do more traditional high speed photography (taking photos in a darkened room and controlling the flash with StopShot) then you do not need a shutter cable. A good example of this is water drop or popping ballon photography. If your event happens faster than your camera can respond it will need to be photographed by firing the flash and not the camera.
How do I connect my StopShot to multiple flashes?
You can connect multiple flashes to StopShot using RCA Y Cables or our 5-Way Flash Splitter. You can find diagrams for connecting multiple flashes as well as the sensors on our StopShot Connections page.
