Jan2009: Price Reductions on all products!
A price reduction of at least 10% off all products becomes
effective from 1st January 2009.
Continued volatility in the financial markets have changed the
relationship between the US$, euro and GB£. We are a small company and our
web-ordering system takes your orders in euros (pre 2011), translating to your local
currency at "checkout".
For our US customers this means that gentLED-SHUTTER for
example returns to the price of approx $26 it was 2 months ago.
For our Euro-zone customers prices are now 10% reduced.
For other customers the 10% reduction offsets recent shifts
in exchange rates.
On 80% of our products the price has been the same since 2005,
now all prices are at their lowest ever euro rate!

Jan 2008: The latest gentWIRE is for SDM / CHDK!
is for controlling Canon cameras that can accept the SDM / CHDK firmware enhancement.
It is designed to be operated by a spare RC channel, in exactly the same way as
the standard gentLED-SHUTTER. To
date discussion on CHDK has majored around the possibilities it offers to expand
camera operation and provide autoKAP capabilities. With gentWIRE-USB
and a simple script you can trigger the shutter remotely in a standard
pan-and-tilt rig. Of course you can take it even further and use the external
trigger in other ways - the sky is the limit?
