With this feature at night, you can set your
camera to fire when the laser aimed at the Pluto Trigger is broken.
This is perfect for nature photographers, especially when you need to take care that the nest or grounds where your subject is not regularly disturbed.

Using the Pluto Trigger, you can take a lot of the guesswork out of photographing lightning.
