StopShot Studio – High Speed Photography Controller

StopShot Studio is an expanded version of our StopShot high speed photography controller, the user interface for the StopShot Studio is your computer (either MAC or PC). The StopShot Studio features 12 outputs, 2 sensor inputs, a microphone input and a start button. This controller was specifically designed for those who want to have the capability to control many outputs. A good example are the photographers who want to get crazy with lots of water valves for some over the top water drop shots. Currently these photographers need to daisy chain two StopShot controllers to get 6 outputs – not anymore! Like the standard StopShot the Studio version is extremely flexible.


StopShot Studio – High Speed Photography Controller

The StopShot Studio is an expanded 12 output version of our StopShot controller. It can be completely configured and controlled by your computer (PC or Mac).

Control StopShot Studio via USB

Whether you use a PC or a Mac you can use your computer to control the StopShot Studio. The computer removes the limitation of a small display, making the StopShot Studio much easier to configure. The computer software, which you can download from the ‘Support’ tab, features tabs specifically for water drops, ballistics, time lapse as well as a completely configurable advanced tab. After you configure the StopShot Studio you can verify your results by clicking over to the plot tab to see your results graphically. Configurations can be saved to a file for easy recovery later. StopShot Studio is completely backwards compatible with all of our original StopShot accessories. You can even program a configuration and then disconnect it from your computer and run it remotely.

StopShot Studio has a dedicated tab just for water drop photography. See below for a screen shot. Just choose the number of water valves, flashes and whether or not you want to control your camera automatically and the computer interface will tell you how to connect everything as well as give you options for the timing control of each.
