Freemove mode:

Turn the controller to set a target speed, and the engine will gradually increase speed up to the target.

Video mode:

  1. Turn the controller to move the slider and press to select the initial frame or position.
  2. Turn the controller to select the final position.
  3. Select the duration in seconds.
  4. Loop? (restarts after one cycle without interruption)
  5. Press Start.  If loop mode is not activated, it will stop at the end will ask if you want to repeat the take.

Time lapse mode:

  1. Turn the controller to move the slider and press to select the initial frame or position.
  2. Turn the controller to select the final position.
  3. Select the number of photos and the time interval between each one, and the system will automatically calculate the total recording time and the duration of the final result.
  4. Loop? This is ideal if we want a timelapse that will start and return to the initial position when finished.
  5. Connect the shutter cable and press Start.

Long exposure mode:

  1. Select the minutes and seconds for the duration of the shoot.
  2. Connect the self-timer cable and press Start.

 

Stop-motion mode:

  1. Turn the controller to move the slider and press to select the initial frame or position.
  2. Turn the controller to select the final position.
  3. Select the number of photos and press Start.
  4. Once you shoot a photo, the engine will advance automatically. If you make a mistake, don’t worry: just go back to the start and the engine will return.

What batteries can I use?

The S1-Controller comes with just one power source; if you need a battery, you’ll need to purchase one separately. You can use any battery with a voltage between 10V and 20V that generates at least 2A. Input to the S1-Controller is a DC jack, 2.1mm x 5.5mm. If this sounds too technical, don’t worry. We’ve included below some links to compatible batteries.

What cable can I use to shoot with my camera?

The S1-Controller includes a 2.5mm mini-jack output — this means you’ll need to find a cable that is compatible with your camera and with the 2.5mm mini-jack standard for the controller. See below some Amazon links to help you out:

Before you buy, ensure that the product is compatible with your camera, and consult the manufacturer if you have doubts.

As a reminder, note that some camera models require you to shoot in Manual Focus. This should not be an issue, as you can focus in Auto Focus (AF), change to Manual Focus (MF) and shoot with the S1-Controller.
