I recently got word from Promote Systems that they are sending me a Promote Control to play with for the next month. This is a fascinating little device for Canon and Nikon DSLRs. The supported camera list is as follows:
Nikon: D3, D3s, D3X, D2X, D2Xs, D2H, D2Hs, D200, D300, D300s, D700, D40, D40x, D50, D60, D70, D70s, D80, D90, D3100, D5000, D5100, D7000.
Canon: 1D Mark III, 1Ds Mark III, 1D Mark IV, 5D Mark II, 7D, 30D, 40D, 50D, 400D/XTi, 450D/XSi, 500D/T1i, 600D/T3i, 1000D/XS, 1100D/T3, 60D.
Designed for serious amateurs and pros, Promote® Control is an advanced remote control for digital SLR cameras from Canon, Nikon and various other manufacturers. A brief feature list includes:
- Automatic bracketing for up to 45 shots in a row
- Up to 9.0EV steps between bracketed exposures
- Automatic Bulb mode bracketing
- Programmable Focus Stacking sequences (Canon only, requires a free firmware update)
- Time-Lapse with optional exposure bracketing for HDR Time-Lapse
- Pocket-sized alternative to laptop-based camera remote control solutions
Once I receive the demo unit, I will post a review with lots of photos of resulting work. As of this moment, I do not have an ETA for the Promote Control but I am eager to get my hands on it. I would certainly love to know any feed back from my readers who have had an opportunity to use this.
