Press release

Anglerfish Trigger V1.0, By Anglerfish Creative Lighting


The optical capability of the trigger will allow the user to store the trigger in his or her pocket and use the trigger on the spot as required. You can use the trigger to perform off-camera lighting and to decouple the strobes from the camera giving the photographer ability to create creative lighting. It can be used in macro snoot application for difficult snoot light setup or it can be used in wide angle application such as wreck or cave photography.

An underwater photographer who is already shooting macro with twin strobe setup can simply carry the trigger in his pocket. Once the diver sees an opportunity for snoot lighting, the diver can disconnect one of his strobes from the camera and attach it to a tripod. The trigger can easily be connected to the remote strobe underwater with a fiber optic cable. Once the lighting is setup with the appropriate light modifier (snoot), the diver can more around the subject to get the proper framing. By decoupling the camera from the strobe, the diver can move around and frame the subject without disturbing the lighting.

The trigger can be use in wreck photography whereby allowing the photographer to provide multiple light sources. Light sources can be modified using color gels to add dramatic lighting to the scene. since there is no cable between the camera and the strobe the light source can be place anywhere.
