NiSi BRC (Bluetooth Remote Control) – Wireless Remote Shutter

The new NiSi BRC has been introduced to make long exposures easier, without the need for a complicated and expensive remote release. In most instances photographers will use an app to calculate the exposure and then use an intervalometer type remote to set the time, or the the exposure with a wrist watch, which means avoiding distractions and not over exposing.

The NiSi BRC makes this much easier when used with the NiSi ND Calculator App for Apple and Android. Simply connect the BRC and the app, calculate the exposure, put your camera into Bulb mode and hit Start.

The NiSi BRC is lightweight, small and quick to connect, and the battery life will last for months due to such small power use and the auto off function and should last for well over 12 months.

View the document below for instructions to connect the app to the BRC.

Connect BRC To App

Overview of Instructions

  2. Plug the cable into the BRC which will switch on.
  3. Launch the app on your mobile, ensuring Bluetooth is switched on in the mobile settings. Click the Bluetooth icon in the app and search for the device “Nisioptics”. Select the device and they will be connected.

Using the ND Calculator

Using the app to calculate exposure is simple.

  1. First, note the correct normal exposure without an ND, for example 1/25. Switch your camera to Bulb Mode. Some cameras now have a dedicated Bulb Mode, but is more often in Manual and is reached by scrolling the shutter speed all the way over past the longest shutter speed (normally 30 seconds).
  2. In the app, select the ND filter you are using, for example ND1000, 10 stop.
  3. Set Basic Shutter Speed, this is the normal shutter speed without an ND, eg 1/25.
  4. Set if you wish to use exposure compensation to under or over expose, or leave at 0.
  5. The exposure time will be displayed, then just hit Start. The camera shutter will open and then close after the exposure time has finished.

Please note switching apps on your mobile while the exposure is running will not interfere with or cancel the exposure.
