The laser mode requires an external laser pointer (should be purchased separately). This mode is based on the existence of a laser beam fed to the optical receiver of the device. It will trigger your camera or flash unit whenever the beam is broken. You can use a regular laser pen or pointer as the laser source. The color of the laser does not make any difference. The Laser Mode has three parameters:
Threshold: This value determines the level of the light that will be considered as a laser. The measured light level will be displayed in real time with orange bars. This will help you to understand where to set the threshold approximately to filter out the environment light. You can move the threshold bar around the button by touching the grey bar.
Delay: This parameter defines the duration between the detection of the laser break and the triggering of the camera. You can define the delay anywhere from 0 up to 999 milliseconds.
Frame: This parameter defines how many pictures to be taken in case the laser beam is broken. Once the laser beam is broken, it will trigger the camera for so many times defined with the Frame parameter. You can set the frame the number all the way up to 99999.
The laser mode requires a consistent laser beam to be fed to the optical receiver of the device. The receiver is located on the front face of the device. The receiver is behind a transparent window and there is an optical lens on the window. The lens will help to focus the laser beam to the receiver.
The laser beam must hit the lens on the window. A slight movement of the laser source can move the beam away from the receiver, so make sure that both the laser source and the device are firmly mounted on a steady stand. After you have firmly mounted the laser source and the device, if the laser beam is correctly aligned to the receiver, the message on the screen will turn from "Laser won't reach the threshold" to "Laser trap ready". Seeing a constant "Laser trap ready" message on the screen is the first condition of the laser mode.
WARNING: Please take every possible safety caution while you are working with a laser. Never point the laser to your eyes, other people and animals.
