Pinout Lets You Know When Your Camera Has Been Stolen

 |  |  |  |  June 23, 2016

Professional photographers invest a lot of money in their gear. We’re talking multiple camera bodies, lenses for different situations, flash units, extra batteries, and more. These guys spend tens of thousands of dollars in some cases. So when your gear gets stolen, it can be devastating. Well, Pinout is here to help.

Pinout is designed help prevent camera theft. You can clip it to camera bodies and it pairs with your smartphones or smartwatches via Bluetooth. So when your camera gets out of range, it will alert you. It will also come in handy if you leave your camera behind.

This little device does more than prevent theft though. Pinout also gives your camera wireless capabilities, allowing users to remotely trigger the shutter release for HDR photos, time-lapse, star trails, and more. It can also geotag photos thanks to built-in GPS. So it is also a great way to upgrade your camera. The only downside is that Pinout is only compatible with Nikon cameras, as well as the Fujifilm S5 Pro.

You can pre-order a single Pinout device over on Indiegogo. Prices range from $24 to $89, depending on the camera you have, and which features you want.
