Vela Pop: The world's fastest sound trigger
The Vela Pop is smaller than a bar of chocolate, but faster than a speeding bullet. Perfect for capturing shots of bullets, explosions, burst balloons, broken eggs and more. It has a battery that lasts for weeks, so is also great for long-term setups such as wildlife, security and even rocket launches! A perfect partner to the Vela One high-speed flash, it also works with a regular speedlight using the optional hotshoe adapter or PC sync cable.
- Trigger speed: ~7µs
- Battery life: ~15 days

A snug silicone bumper keeps The Vela Pop safe from knocks and scrapes, and the CR2032 coin cell lasts for weeks. Simple knobs finely adjust threshold and delay: no more complicated controls here.
The Vela Pop is fast enough to capture almost anything: a bullet won’t have even left the barrel of a gun by the time it triggers! You can finely adjust the delay between zero and 1000 microseconds, to perfectly time your shot.
In comparison, most wired sound triggers have a latency that is around 10 to 100 times slower. Smartphone-based sound triggers are at best 1000 times slower, meaning water balloons are the fastest thing you’re likely to be able to shoot, but many have delays of over 100ms: more than ten thousand times slower! The sound threshold is adjustable from the lowest volume, to a level more suitable for a gunshot or rocket launch.
The Vela Pop is the fastest, smallest and easiest to use sound trigger, and you're going to be very surprised by the price!
