Boulder, CO (April 12, 2017) — Alpine Labs, a leader in next generation camera accessories, is pleased to announce the launch of Spark: the most compact, adaptable and affordable camera remote ever designed. Currently available at a pre-­sale discount on Kickstarter, Spark is the easiest way to upgrade your favorite DSLR and Mirrorless cameras for capturing the world around you.
 
Spark is designed with three distinct shooting modes for unrivaled versatility. The ultracompact unit can be used as a quick infrared trigger from 30’ away, as a wired trigger via a camera’s trigger port, or as a more powerful app based camera controller (iOS & Android). The user decides which mode best fits their creative needs and then deploys Spark to either capture a quick selfie, shoot a long-­exposure in manual bulb mode, or to set a timelapse via their favorite smartphone or tablet. “Spark adapts to whatever situation you are shooting in and the three control modes are what make that possible. Its kind of like the swiss army knife of triggers,” commented Greg Horvath, Alpine Labs CEO.
 
A Bluetooth Low Energy connection allows for dependability when using Spark’s intuitive mobile app and Spark can last for an incredible 2,000 hours of continuous use on the same replaceable coin cell battery. Also, with the ability to control a wide variety of DSLR and mirrorless bodies, Spark opens the world of wireless camera control for users of Sony, Fujifilm, Hasselblad, Pentax, Olympus, Canon, Nikon and more.
 
In 2015 Alpine Labs unveiled its first camera remote — Pulse — which resulted in a viral campaign that netted more than 1MM+ crowdfunding. Returning to Kickstarter for the first time since the release of Pulse, Alpine Labs is thrilled to bring their latest innovation and camera remote technology to the Kickstarter community via Spark. Commenting on the relationship with Kickstarter, Horvath continued, “We were born on Kickstarter and love being a part of a community where creative projects can grow. The support of backers has allowed us to keep chasing our own ideas, and after launching four products on Kickstarter we have a history of transparency and execution.”
 
Even at a MSRP of $59, Spark is by far the most affordable way to upgrade your camera. However, backers on Kickstarter can receive a Spark unit for $44, a discount of 25%, for the remainder of the Kickstarter campaign.

Through June 30th, DxO is offering free activation licenses for DxO OpticsPro 9. Granted, DxO OpticsPro 11 is the current version, but... you may find DxO OpticsPro 9 a great option if you own a DSLR that's a couple of years old do not want to invest in an alternative batch editing program (like Lightroom).
 
You can learn more about DxO OpticsPro 9 via press release or find its supported cameras here.
