File Size: HTML Page (15k) Loading ..

Several devices enable you to operate the New F-1 from a distance by remote control. They are used in conjunction with either the AE Motor Drive FN or AE Power Winder FN. The Wireless Controller LC-1 permits shooting by wireless from up to 60m away, making it ideal for wildlife photography. To take pictures at regularly timed intervals there is the Interval Timer TM-1 Quartz. Settable in 14 stages from one frame per second to one every 30 minutes, its applications range from industrial photography to recording scientific experiments.

Remote control photography is finding increasingly wide applications on our own place, regardless shooting in wildlife, behind a action filled goal mouth or in hazardous industrial environments. And pictures taken at regularly timed intervals are contributing to our knowledge in the fields of meteorology and astronomy by recording the formation of clouds and the movements of planets and stars. In the natural sciences, they enable us to study the growth of microorganisms, plants and insects.

For time-lapse photography, the Interval Timer TM-1 Quartz can be quite useful with its 14 different time settings, from one shot per second to one every 30 minutes. Other handy units are available for remote control by cable.
