How to use the Sony Alpha α7r III with the RamperPro

The new Sony Alpha α7r III is now supported by the RamperPro. The great news about this camera is that the camera is able to store its' images on the memory card of the camera. That is a huge improvement because previous Sony camera models didn't have this feature. That meant that the RamperPro had to download the images from the camera. But that is not required anymore on the Sony Alpha α7r III! This means shorter intervals since the images can now stay on the camera itself. Note: The Sony Alpha α7r III is supported in RamperPro firmware 3072 and higher.

RamperPro firmware 3058 is available - Narvik Release

We are very happy to announce the latest major RamperPro firmware release  called Narvik. This firmware was tested and further developed way over the polar circle in Norway.

Here is a sneak preview of the next RamperPro firmware

We are very close to the release of the next firmware release for our RamperPro time lapse controller. The RamperPro was already the most advanced controller available but the new firmware will push the limits even further. Here are two features that will be included too (besides the real new functionality that we will announce later).

ElysiaVisuals has joined hands with TetherTools

You can now get your RamperPro advanced timelapse controller together with a TetherPro USB cable from TetherTools. These high quality cables are the perfect way to connect the USB port of your camera with the RamperPro. We have selected the TetherPro cables because they are long enough while keeping a very reliable USB connection with the RamperPro.

Ron Risman from reviewed the RamperPro time lapse controller

Ron Risman from did a full review of our RamperPro time lapse controller. This is what he says:

The design of the RamperPro is genius. By actually writing corrective XMP data to compensate for the limitations of a digital SLR it has the ability to shoot at any time of day without being limited to the rather large exposure jumps caused by using one of your cameras auto modes (Av priority, Tv priority, or auto ISO).

RamperPro firmware 3025 is available - La Palma release

Today we released a new major firmware version for our advanced RamperPro timelapse controller. We took the RamperPro to La Palma where we had the ability to really test the unit to the edge of its' capabilities. The results of these tests have resulted to the "La Palma" release of the RamperPro firmware. We have also added many requests from our customers. Please keep sending us feature requests!

RamperPro firmware 3020 is available

We just uploaded the latest RamperPro firmware 3020 firmware.  This firmware is the first step to a new feature that we will be releasing very soon from now (probably in a week). The next firmware (3021) will feature in-flight modification wizards. These wizards will enable you to modify your shoot while the RamperPro is running. You can, for example, modify the exposure by specifying the correction (in stops) and the number of images that the RamperPro can take to reach this correction. You can upgrade your RamperPro by connecting the unit to the Internet.
