One day, a customer traded a metal-bending hand brake for a Deardorff camera. Becker seized the opportunity to use the hand brake to manufacture stainless-steel developing trays for local photo labs and photographers. The trays caught on,and this new manufacturing side of the business grew to include tanks, sinks and print washers.

Remote viewing and shutter release capability opens up a host of picture opportunities, from working high atop camera platforms from ground level to very low level shooting without muddying your clothes (given your camera lacks an articulating monitor) to placing your camera in spots and being able to view and shoot without your being right behind the viewfinder. Many photographers routinely work with radio triggers for flash, especially in studio environments where the lights are set in position and photographer and model or subject move. The Hahnel Inspire adds to the mix with remote shutter release and viewing in one.

Here in this Hahnel supplied illustration you get a good idea of the way the unit works, setting up a signal relationship for both remote viewing and shutter release.
