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!

Click for more resolution...gentWIRE-USB 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?

A real lightweight solution at 9grams (1/3oz) including ~250mm (~10") cables and both connectors.

Compatible with the Canon A570, A610/20/30/40, A710, S2 IS, S3 IS, G7, ixus700/sd500. Plug into a spare RC channel, connect the other end to the camera USB connector, and activate the CHDK script.
