No power means no photography – that renders battery welfare an important facet of modern imaging life. Fortunately, Hähnel’s family of ProCube2 chargers is ideally suited to keep you powered up. Buying the charger that matches your camera’s battery type, two cells can be charged simultaneously with intelligent, fast IC charge control and battery health check. Meanwhile, a mAh readout shares how much shooting capacity has been added

during charging. As a guide, 300mAh is enough for around 150 shots. If you need to get shooting in a hurry, it’s an invaluable aid. The main party trick, however, is an additional tray supplied in the kit that fits over the camera battery charging sockets. This enables you to charge four AA cells. There’s also a built-in 2.4A USB charging port for your tablet, powerbank or smartphone. To complete the ProCube2’s impressive versatility, there is a 12V

car lead and plugs for the UK, Europe and the US in the box. This makes the ProCube2 one of the most practical accessories you’ll ever buy! On the subject of camera batteries, if you need a replacement or more cells, Hähnel offers an extensive collection of high-capacity, reliable Li-ion batteries for most cameras. The range includes money-saving twin packs for Canon, Fujifilm, Nikon, Panasonic and Sony cameras, starting from £49.99 per pack.

Capture it right

Hähnel’s Captur range is all about wireless remote camera/flash triggering. It’s the perfect place to look if you’re looking to shoot time-lapse sequences, long exposures, or just want simple hands-free shutter release. The Captur Remote Control is available for Canon, Fujifilm, Nikon, Olympus/Panasonic and Sony. You can expand your shooting opportunities by adding the Captur Module Pro. This versatile unit has built-in sensors, enabling the camera or flash to be triggered by motion, light or sound. There’s an auxiliary socket for third-party sensors, such as pressure plates and temperature sensors. Combining the Module Pro and Captur Receiver, the door opens to a whole new world of exciting picture-taking opportunities. The sound sensor enables incredible shots of breaking glass and bursting balloons; the

laser sensor fires the shutter if the beam is broken, making water droplet and remote wildlife photography possible; and, with the supplied Module IR, you can set up an infrared beam that trips the camera shutter when broken – ideal for action and wildlife shooting. The Module Pro offers fully programmable timed sequences, setting interval timing, delays, the number of exposures and exposure length, while DCM (Digital Channel Matching) renders set-up a simple process.
