Seculine's ZIGVIEW-R - the world's first TTL Motion Sensor shutter release, Interval & Exposure Timer, based on the original Zigview Digital Angle Finder.
Building on the success of Seculine's Zigview Digital Angle Finder, the Zigview R incorporates a host of new features including a motion sensor trigger, a sophisticated interval timer and a Bulb exposure controller making it the ideal accessory for wildlife, nature and macro photography or any situation where a covert or accurately timed approach is required.
Simply attach the Zigview-R digital angle finder to the viewfinder of your camera, frame the subject area as required on the TFT colour display and input the required shutter trigger settings using the on screen menu's.
The motion sensor fires the shutter when movement is detected based on brightness levels in 9 areas of the viewfinder image. This innovative design allows the sensor area to be over any distance and with any area of view including the most extreme telephoto and wideangle lenses, with the sensitivity of each trigger being variable to allow movement in parts of the field of view.
Zigview-R's interval timing facility can be set to fire the shutter over a period of up to 999 days with exposure intervals of between 1/2 second to 99 days allowing huge variations of possibilities. This can be combined, if required, with its timed "BULB" feature which can be accurately set over a wide range enabling photographers to repeatedly control long exposures.
Both the Motion Sensing and Interval facilities can be started at the push of a button, on a countdown timer or at a specific time and date with almost limitless shutter applications.
The Zigview-R can also be used as a Digital Angle Finder to display the image captured by its CMOS sensor through the viewfinder on the 2 inch TFT colour display. This is particularly useful when composing images in high & low angle situations where it is awkward or impossible to see through the viewfinder.
ZIGVIEW-R will work with most digital and film SLR cameras which have an electronic shutter release socket. It is supplied with an eyepiece adapter for common Nikon and Canon cameras and a 2.5mm shutter release connector. Other eyepeice and camera connectors are available as accessories.
The Seculine ZIGVIEW-R will be available from Photographic retailers from the end of November with a suggested retail price of GBP199.99 inc Vat.
