Works like a normal Nikon ML-L3 infrared remote control, but it drives the camera automatically to shoot at regular intervals. The shooting intervals and the pauses are specifically implemented to use the intervalometer for astrophotography.

Using the intervalometer is very simple: set your camera in bulb mode, set the preferred exposure time on the remote control and switch it on. At this point the camera starts to capture the image. After the selected exposure time the camera receive the command to stop the capture. After a pause of 20,40 or 60 seconds (selectable with an internal jumper), the process start again.

The timer offers 10 different time intervals
0:30, 1:30, 2:00, 2:30, 3:00, 3:30, 4:00, 4:30, 5:00 and 10:00 minutes

These timings and the operation method are not suitable for time lapse video. Take a look at this page: intervalometer comparison to compare the two intervalometers.

NOTE: is it possible, upon request, to program the intervalometer with different times (not more than 10) at no extra cost. This implies a delay before shipping (5-10 days). Please contact me before purchasing.

Dimensions : 80 x 55 mm approx. Thickness : 25 mm(box), 40 mm maximum (height of the power switch)
