Hot Shoe Plus. ( Cable supplied : Canon 2.5mm Sub-mini cable. )
Double hot shoe – the auto switching twin hot shoe mount.
An auto switching twin hot shoe to automate the shooting of silhouettes for masking.
The twin shoe mounts into/onto a DSLR hot shoe. Connected to the computer by USB the triggering of the camera and the switching between the hot shoes between two shots is automated.
User would need to attached 2 transmitters to the hot shoes on the twin mount.
One set of strobes lights your subject, the other set of strobes, on a different channel, would light your background to produce the silhouette. Two images are produced, one of your subject, the other a perfect silhouette of it. One click, two images.
This system does not require a particular brand of transmitters and in fact can work with two different brands at the same time.
To automate the masking we suggest this dedicated masking software : Mask Integrator
