- use it for self portraits and group photos
- prevents camera shake for telephoto shots or macros
- allows crisp and sharp night shots and long time exposures
- remote trigger multiple cameras synchronously with one transmitter (e.g. for stereo photography)
- setup multiple cameras and remote control them incon- spicuous from one place (e.g. wedding photography)
- release the shutter even when you simply can't reach the trigger - also through walls
- fascinating and authentic wildlife and animal pictures
- hidden shutter release in order to avoid posed pictures (e.g. kids)
Bird / Wildlife Photography
- Setup your camera at the ideal spot, as close to the object as needed
- Review and adjust the focus, photo composition and all other settings
- Then release the shutter from a convenient and safe place, far enough to not disturb the situation
- Observe the scene and trigger in the perfect moment - you don't even need line-of-sight to the camera
Self / Group Photo
- Take your time to properly setup the camera, review the focus point and the photo composition
- Bring yourself in the scene without a rat-race against the self timer
- Hide the key fob transmitter invisible in your hand, in your pocket or behind your back.
The transmitter is very small and doesn't have a telescopic antenna!
- Release as often you want without leaving the scene. You'll get the shot you want!
Remote Camera Location
- Setup / mount the camera in the desired angle. Make sure all batteries are charged and there is enough available memory space.
- Bring the camera in final photo position.
- Use the key fob to conveniently release the camera - how often you want without touching the camera again.
- Just press the focus button to wake up your camera in case it goes to sleep mode.
- This allows you to take beautiful ground based aerial photos. This technique is also used by paragliders, event photographers, ...
Why using the ZAP-SHOT?
- Using the self timer is not feasible in this situation.
- A cable remote switch is not flexible enough. The cable may break or can be disturbing.
- Since an infrared (IR) remote can only trigger from the front of the camera and in a narrow angle, this won't work in most situations. Also, the distance is probably too low and sunlight can disturb the infrared signal.
