The Lightning BugTM is based upon the science of lightning. There are two components of lightning; the bright white flash everyone wants to capture and the unseen infrared light that always precedes it. The Lightning BugTM uses a high-speed photodiode sensor optimized to the infrared burst that occurs just before a lightning strike. This infrared light comes from the vaporization of air and particles in the air. The Lightning BugTM acts as a lookout for your camera, watching for a change in infrared light. When a significant change of infra-red light over a very short period of time is detected, it directs the camera shutter to trip and capture the lightning in action. The exclusive sensitivity adjustment circuitry allows the photographer to customize the Lightning Bug'sTM operation to any shooting situation. This gives the photographer full control over when to take the picture. If you only wanted to capture the brightest and boldest lightning bolts you would decrease the sensitivity. Or if you wanted to capture lightning over the city or mountains from a long distance, you would increase the sensitivity. Only the Lightning BugTM gives you this level of control. The Lightning BugTM allows the user to limit the number of possible exposures per second to between 1 and 10. This feature allows you to capture repeated lightning strikes successfully. When trying to capture weather events, your photography gear can get wet. The Lightning BugTM is designed to withstand exposure to rain. The design incorporates weather resistant soft touch buttons.
