Pluto Trigger is a high-speed smart camera trigger that's controlled by a free iPhone/Android app over Bluetooth LE(Low Energy) that can be used for remote shooting, time lapse, High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography, video recording and lightning photography.It enables your DSLR to do high-speed photography triggered by sound, by light, or by something breaking a laser beam aimed at the Pluto Trigger (the laser is included). With the built-in PIR sensor, Pluto Trigger can detect animals’ body heat and take photos.It can also wait until a person is smiling to shoot a photo, or take pictures triggered by motion or vibration. You know those fancy photos of water droplets colliding in mid-air? There's a mode for that too(Droplet Valve required) -- 24 modes in all.
Pluto Trigger has infrared(IR) remote control capability, which enables it to support a wide variety of cameras (not just DSLRs). It can also work as a selfie remote for your iPhone(Pluto Camera required). The app can even calculate depth of field, shutter speed when using an ND filter, 500 Rule and Sunrise/Sunset Time!

This remote trigger has been great. It is my first remote trigger for my Sony A7R II; however, I have been impressed so far. I was having stability issues with long exposures prior to using this trigger, I no longer have these issues. That with the fact I can change the settings for my long exposures and HDR images is awesome! I look forward to the using the trigger on motion features soon.
The function and Hardware are almost excellent. There is one Problem with the BT connectivity. I have two old phones a HTC M8 and a Samsung S3 which connect. My newer phones don't. Could a software update fix that?
Heel leuk speelgoed met vele opties
Although I have only really used the lightning capture function on the Pluto Trigger, I will admit I was pleasantly surprised. I was skeptical how well this function would work. At my first opportunity I took the Trigger out with my Sony Ar7iii and started shooting. It took some time to figure out the sensitivity required (still takes time) but once I got that figured out I was able to capture 3 bolts within a short amount of time...so yes, this works! I have yet to really play around with other features, but I am excited for the laser capture and have played around with this in my living room. Although I am still trying to figure out a practical area to use this in seeing how I mainly do landscape photography. Over all I am very pleased with the Pluto Trigger. Keep in mind I have only really tested one of the unique functions of this Trigger. If I need to update later on I will but so far this thing is awesome!
I like it. So many things to discover. Can't wait to try out lightning
This is a great photo accessory and I have no purchase regrets. It could use better documentation for capturing lightning.
The item requires a little bit of study in order to use it correctly but the prep time required is reasonable. The device promises to be exciting to use and enable the capture of some very interesting images.. We are excited about using it.
I have found the trigger easy to use and have already captured hundreds of shots. The only downside was there was a lack of clarity on the currency; being US$, it was a bit more expensive than expected, hence 4 stars.
Great product. It is fun to use at night especially. Can’t wait to see how Pluto Trigger responds to lightning.
Sorting through the functions, and learning the best use of this tool. The 30min continuous fiiming option is huge, and the sensors all seem dependable. I really like the variety of options.
