i have had the chance to have a bit of a play with one of these
camera triggers over the last few days but not in the way that
they were made for………….

i have been testing it out for high speed photography
water drop photography and water balloon popping
and as you can see from the image above its not to bad
we did not spend a lot of time setting up or used good lighting
on the water drop photos but if we had / when we do there will
be more images posted below in a gallery…

our water drop setup was 2 macro led ring lights with low batteries
a small plastic takeaway carton filled with water
and a used party popper upside down to drip water from…

the #micnova trigger was setup in sound mode to trigger
our camera on the sound of the dripping water
so a quiet room was needed along with setting the trigger to almost
at its highest point but as you can see by the image we used its not
too bad just leave your camera in place for a few mins and it will take multiple
images some good bad and great

just remember to set your camera up first.. in manual mode and manual focus
the lens on the point where the water drips at ….
use a ruler as a guide so you can focus on something

over all i love this trigger and will use it as the instructions say
it was meant for….
will have it out for some wildlife photos in the summer

watch this space for the images………….
