Will my camera work on the Mitton LR1? 
. The Mitton LR1 triggers the camera through the shutter release port, so any camera with a shutter release port can be used with the LR1, but we advise the camera has a good frame rate per second.

What does the small box with a display do on the MittonLR1?
The display is the controller box that works out the stereo base, so say you want a length of 20 cm and you require 20 frames the controller breaks up the 20cm into 20 even sections and then triggers the camera at each section. This makes the whole procedure of image capture very fast indeed.
