Among a multitude of easy-to-use features, Promote Control offers unique flexibility for exposure bracketing, which is commonly used to create High Dynamic Range images. High Dynamic Range, or HDR imaging has found ever-increasing popularity, thanks to stunning detail and tone range rendition. Promote Control propels HDR imaging forward by offering unparalleled flexibility, allowing for bracketing step variability previously not possible with in-camera bracketing modes. This comes especially handy when time and quality are critical for success, like in the real estate and architectural photography.
Only with Promote Control you can automatically bracket as few as 2 or as many as 45 images! Exposures may vary from 1/8000 up to several hours, and Promote Control will automatically put the camera into Bulb mode as appropriate when performing bracketed exposures longer than 30 seconds. The resulting images can be processed in a software application of choice to create a highly realistic image with a wide tonal range.
Promote Control allows shooting single HDR brackets, Time-Lapse HDR sequences, or even Focus-Stacked HDRs by combining HDR mode with Time-Lapse or Focus Stacking modes. More than one Promote Control can be used to fire multiple cameras simultaneously for stereoscopic HDR, optionally with Time-Lapse enabled.
Other features include Mirror-Lockup (M-Up) and Long Exposure Noise Reduction (LeNR) , which are available on other shooting modes as well. Mirror-Lockup is used to avoid the slight vibration caused by movement from your camera's mirror. Long Exposure Noise Reduction applies a special noise-reducing procedure when your camera is taking images with shutter speeds slower than approximately 1 second.
