Cognisys StopShot™

Fully programmable intervalometer for triggering multiple external devices with exclusive Hadland modifications for connectivity to high-speed & ultra high-speed cameras.

Shimadzu Hyper Vision HPV-X2 with power supply unit.

Hadland Modified StopShot
featuring 3 BNC connectors for interfacing with high-speed & ultra high-speed cameras

Easily capture events too fast to see.

StopShot is a programmable timing module for photographers who desire to capture water drops & splashes, ballistics, wildlife and other fast moving subjects without expensive high-speed cameras. Use the 4 button interface to easily program precise timing delays to trigger independent or sequential events such as firing flashes, releasing camera shutters* and time-lapse image captures. A variety of acoustic, IR beam, laser & vibration sensors can be used with adjustable gain sensitivity to experience the invisible.

Three BNC connectors are included on the Hadland modified StopShot for interfacing high-speed & ultra high-speed cameras and testing equipment. The StopShot provides low voltage output from all triggering ports – an added benefit for electronic component protection of high-speed & ultra high-speed cameras.
