Pluto Trigger is a high-speed smart camera trigger that's controlled by a free iPhone/Android app over Bluetooth LE(Low Energy) that can be used for remote shooting, time lapse, High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography, video recording and lightning photography.It enables your DSLR to do high-speed photography triggered by sound, by light, or by something breaking a laser beam aimed at the Pluto Trigger (the laser is included). With the built-in PIR sensor, Pluto Trigger can detect animals’ body heat and take photos.It can also wait until a person is smiling to shoot a photo, or take pictures triggered by motion or vibration. You know those fancy photos of water droplets colliding in mid-air? There's a mode for that too(Droplet Valve required) -- 24 modes in all.
Pluto Trigger has infrared(IR) remote control capability, which enables it to support a wide variety of cameras (not just DSLRs). It can also work as a selfie remote for your iPhone(Pluto Camera required). The app can even calculate depth of field, shutter speed when using an ND filter, 500 Rule and Sunrise/Sunset Time!

The Pluto trigger worked perfectly of the box and does exactly what it’s advertised to do. I’ve used it with the Pluto valve and it works great. The app is easy to use and the video instructions are great
This is a very well designed addition to my kit bag. I initially bought it to capture lightning, which I had previously only done almost by accident. I'll have to wait for the "lightning season" to get some of the great shots I have seen with Pluto Trigger. I'll therefore be playing with the amazing features that it provides. My main one is astrophotography, replacing my rather clunky external intervalometer with the Pluto; much easier to use and more flexible. The light weight and sitting atop the camera means that it doesn't interfere with my motorised camera mount. I'm getting some really good stacked shots of the Milky Way. I'll be buying some more accessories to go with my trigger, so I can expand my portfolio. Thoroughly recommended!
During Lockdown This Little Device Saved My Sanity Having fun trying all the functions. I Would recommend the pluto trigger to anyone.
The Pluto trigger is a must have for every photographer A+++
This has been a great addition to my photography business.
