Phase Trigger can be operated in the following modes:
Triggering of image-series (XT)
In this mode, Phase Trigger executes an extended trigger, so that the camera will produce a series of pictures. This corresponds to the manual pressing of the camera trigger. The lengths of the extended trigger can be defined using the time value. This value depends on the speed with which the connected camera captures the image series, and on the desired number of pictures.
Most of the single-lens reflex cameras can produce approx. 20 pictures in a sequence, with a speed of 4 to 8 pictures/sec. It makes, therefore sense, to set up values in this mode from 1 to 5 seconds.
Typical time values from 0.3 s to 6 s.
In this mode, Phase Trigger will shoot continuously for as long as the sensor is active. The set time is the time interval between each single shooting. The first shot will be taken without any time-delay.
Typical time values from 0.3 s to 10 s.
Single Triggering (01)
This mode executes a single shot. The shooting takes place after the activation of the sensor, with time-delay.
Typical time values range from 0.0 s to 0.5 s.
Multiple Triggering (02 to 99)
produces the corresponding number of shootings. The set time is the time interval between each single shooting. The first shooting follows the activation of the sensor, without any time delay.
Typical time values from 0.2 s to 10.0 s.
The duration of the time-delay or the length of the shooting corresponds to the set current time value, that appears on the display. Please take into account that it is not advisable here to set a shorter time than the response time of the camera. For instance, if the camera needs 0.3 seconds to detect two distinct shootings, then the delay value set in Phase Trigger should be higher, in order to allow it to execute the shortest interval between the shootings.
Connection to the camera or to the flash
Phase Trigger has two connection jacks and overall 4 channels to which cameras or flash units can be connected. These switching outputs are electrically disconnected from the control electronics of Phase Trigger. This way, a potential destruction of the connected devices becomes impossible.
Phase Trigger should be operated by USB power adaptor or by Power Bank. For this, use a cord with an adequate USB-C connector. Please make sure that the adaptor or Power Bank to be used is designed as for the USB-Standard 5 Volt and minimum 1000 mA.
