It’s about time someone came out with a simple thumb button to hit record on your fav dslr cam. We all know and don’t like too much: The pain of being ready to shoot but having yet to dismount and press the record button. Aaaaargh!
I’ve seen a wireless triggerbutton, I’ve gaffed a remote to the handle, but I haven’t seen a mechanical solution like this one.
“Stedi Shot” is the company behind this superbulky diylooking $110 (shipping included) mechanical rec trigger.
Is it affordable? No
Where are they from anyway? Could be Himalayas, I have no clue whatsoever. [UPDATE: They’re from Seattle WA. And we’ll have a unit for review soon.]
Do we need this thing? Oh yes!
