In March 2004 our first product, gentled (which was only compatible with Pentax cameras), went on sale at KAPshop. Since then we have extended the range of remote triggering devices to cover many makes and models of camera, selling them here and through other re-sellers.

With so many models and options, at the start of 2011 product names were rationalised to make the product families and functions more understandable. For the benefit of customers who are familiar with the old names the following table cross-references the old and current names:
