Happy Holidays, everyone!
Jim and Fred have a special interview in Podcast #41, Haje Jan Kamps. Haje is the author of a number of photography books, a blogger on a popular photo site, The Photocritic, and is now the designer and inventor of a new photo accessory, The Triggertrap - http://triggertrap.com/. The Triggertrap is an electronic device that will work with most cameras and allows the photographer to trigger the camera (or multiple cameras, flashes, etc.) based upon an event. The device has the built-in ability to be triggered on a laser, an audio event, a built-in intervalometer and even an accessory port to allow the photographer to trigger the camera on any outside event! The device will be on the market around February 2012 and a do-it-yourself circuit board version should be available around March.
