Product Description

Using a separate shutter cable with Promote Control offers the following additional benefits:

Promote Control Shutter Cable

NOTE: Connectors vary depending on camera model.

Enables Mirror Lock-Up functionality

Allows automated exposures longer than 30 seconds

Ensures faster camera reaction to shutter release, especially in "High Dynamic Range" mode

Activates "Manual Hold" mode

Enables arbitrary shutter speeds in "One Shot" and "Time Lapse" modes

Allows pre-focusing the camera using the Promote Control "Focus" button

Enables basic Promote Control shutter release functionality even when out of battery power

FOR CANON:
The CN2 shutter cable is compatible with the following cameras:
Canon 400D/XTi, 450D/XSi, 500D/T1i, 600D/T3i, 1000D/XS, 1100D/T3, 60D, 70D.

Sigma SD1 / SD1 Merrill, Pentax 645Z

NOTE 1: On Canon 60D and 70D the longest fully automatic HDR exposure is limited to 30 seconds due to mechanical Bulb mode activation. Promote Control will prompt to activate Bulb mode manually as required.

NOTE 2: Sigma compatibility requires Promote Control firmware 2.81 beta or higher.

NOTE 3: Pentax compatibility requires Promote Control firmware 3.20 beta or higher.

The CN3 shutter cable is compatible with the following cameras:
Canon 1D Mark III, 1Ds Mark III, 1D Mark IV, 1D X, 5D Mark II, 5D Mark III, 7D, 30D, 40D, 50D

NOTE 1: Canon 10D, 20D, 5D Mk I, 1D/1Ds MkI and 1D/1Ds MkII cameras are not supported by the Promote Control HDR mode (with or without CN3 cable). Only a limited subset of basic features such as One-Shot, Time Lapse and Manual Hold are possible on these cameras, and would require a CN3 cable to be connected.

NOTE 2: Canon 5D Mk III and 6D cannot be automatically switched to Bulb mode if/when required by HDR bracketing (>30 second exposures only). A prompt will be shown on the Promote Control screen if a Bulb mode is required in HDR mode.

All other cameras mentioned above are fully compatible, including HDR mode.

Nikon D4, D3, D3s, D3X, D2X, D2Xs, D2Hs, D2H, D200, D300, D300s, D700, D800/D800e.

SY3 cable for Promote Control

The SY3 cable is compatible with Sony Alpha cameras that also have a PC Flash socket or a standard flash hot shoe. Examples of supported Sony Alpha cameras are: SLT-A99 SLT-A77 DSLR-A900 DSLR-A850 Other Sony Alpha cameras may also be compatible if they have a round PC flash sync socket, or a standard hot shoe.

SY3 PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The SY3 cable requires a separately available Promote Control HDR bracketing controller unit.

Using this cable enables the following modes of operation with select Sony Alpha cameras:

  • One Shot in full "Auto" or Bulb mode (shutter speeds can be preset only in Bulb mode, no preset apertures or preset ISO values)
  • Time-Lapse (shutter cable must be enabled and used in Promote Control Setup)
  • Bulb HDR
  • Bulb Ramping
  • Manual Shutter Hold
  • Hyperfocal Calculator

Other Promote Control modes are not compatible with Sony Alpha cameras at the moment. Regular USB-based HDR bracketing mode is not compatible with Sony Alpha cameras. As a result, HDR bracketing mode is limited to the shortest exposure of 1/20 to 1/5, depending on your camera model. Please see Bulb HDR section in Promote Control User Manual for more information.

IMPORTANT: Sony cameras with a proprietary Sony hot shoe are also supported via an optional third-party adapter that provides a round PC flash sync socket. Other similar adapters may also work.


* Cameras marked with (*) require additional USB OTG adapter cable due to non-compatible USB ports.

NOTE: When ordering - please ensure your camera model is listed for compatibility above, do not presume unlisted models will be suitable.
