About this item

ZIGVIEW-R - the world's first TLL Motion Sensor shutter release, Interval & Exposure Timer, based on the original Zigview Digital Angle Finder.

The Zigview-R incorporates all of the features of the original Zigview with its unique rotating angled TFT color display, showing the viewfinder image on the screen for low and high angle photography and other situations where you would not normally be able to see through the viewfinder or simply where it is more convenient providing a Waist Level Finder style of approach.

Building on the success of the original model, this flagship model has an electronic shutter release capability. The new features built into the Zigview-R can be used in a variety of situations to control the shutter; when motion is detected with its 9 area motion sensor, using the sophisticated interval timing facility, using the Bulb exposure timer or simply as a remote cable release.

Key Features

  • Motion Sensing - This groundbreaking new facility performs a shutter release when small variations in the brightness level in 9 areas of the LCD screen indicate that there is movement in the image.
  • Variable sensitivity - Each of these 9 areas can have independent sensitivities set by the user or some areas can have their sensing turned off to allow movement in these parts, or you can select to use the whole image as one sensor area instead of the 9 separate areas.
  • Distance & Angle of measurement - The 9 area motion sensing capability is not restricted by distance or angle of view since it is sensing movement from the image projected through the lens of your camera. Therefore you can use the most extreme wide angle or telephoto lenses.
  • Whether you are trying to capture an image of a train 5 miles away, a Bee 6 inches from your camera on a flower, or Deer crossing a park the Zigview-R will still look for movement over the whole viewable area.
  • Camera Wake Up Time & AF Time - Since all SLR cameras are different the Zigview-R can be programmed to allow a user set period of time for the camera to Wake up if it has gone into sleep mode, and to focus if in AF mode BEFORE the shutter is triggered.
  • This delays the shutter release time for a small period to allow your camera towake and focus, rather than firing a signal to the shutter at the instant the motion is detected which could then be missed as the camera cannot start quickly enough.
  • Timer Features:
  • Start: Immediate - The motion Detection can be started instantly.
  • Countdown: You can choose to start after a pre defined period of up to 24 Hours in 1 second increments
  • Alarm: A start time and date can be programmed to any year, month & day & time.
  • Timer Features: Stop - Endless Zigview will continue motion detection until the user stops the process
  • Exposure Number: The unit will stop after a set number of exposures (max 999,999)
  • Countdown: The unit will stop after a set time period in 1 second increments up to 100 days.
  • Date & Time: Sensing will stop after a specific time and date up to 999 ahead.
  • Motion Detection Interval:
  • The interval between motion detections can be variedto longer periods in order to detect the motion of slow moving subjects, or shorter periods to detect fast moving subjects.
  • Delay time: You can set a delay time after motion is detected to allow for the mirror action of your camera, or to prevent the same subject continuously triggering the shutter
  • Exposures per Motion Detection: You can set the Zigview-R to capture several exposures per motion trigger at minimum intervals of 0.5 seconds apart
  • Interval Timing:
  • Interval timing can be performed with simple settings using number of shots required and the interval between shots, or more detaiuled settings can be specified as follows.
  • Timer Features - Start
  • Immediate - The Interval Timer can be started instantly.
  • Countdown - You can choose to start after a pre defined period of up to 24 Hours in 1 second increments.
  • Alarm: A start time and date can be programmed to any year, month & day & time.
  • Interval Parameters: Exposure Number & Interval: The unit will stop after a set number of exposures have been performed at the specified interval.
  • No. Exposures & End Time: The unit will evenly space the required number of shots programmed until the specified end time and date.
  • No. Shots & Duration: The unit will evenly space the required number of shots over the countdown duration specified.
  • Interval & End Time: The unit will continuously fire the shutter at the specified interval until the end time & date is reached.
  • Camera Wake Up Time & AF Time:- Since all SLR cameras are different the Zigview-R can be programmed to allow a user set period of time for the camera to Wake up if it has gone into sleep mode, and to focus if in AF mode BEFORE the shutter is triggered.
  • This allows the Zigview-R to account for the wake up and focus periods before the specified interval time is reached, ensuring the shutter is activated properly.
  • Exposures per Interval: You can set the Zigview-R to capture several exposures per Interval time at minimum intervals of 0.5 seconds apart. For instance you could set the timer to take 5 images 1 second apart after an interval of 8 minutes.
  • Bulb Interval Exposure: With your camera set on Bulb you can set the Zigview-R to expose the subject for a specified bulb duration within the interval timing facility. ie. you could set the unit to make a 90 second exposure every interval of 1 hour and 10 minutes.
