Rob Galbraith: Long distance camera trigger uses walkie-talkies to send signal
A camera trigger device, developed by photographer Robert Benson, enables an unmanned Canon or Nikon camera to be fired from miles away using walkie-talkies to send the signal. The idea for the device germinated from a problem Benson experienced firing a remote camera at an air show earlier this year. He has turned the solution into a US$90 product that he builds and ships from his home base in San Diego.
