Let the testing begin!
Greetings, backers! This update is brought to you by our Head of Photography, Thomas, the man we’ve tasked with breaking new photographic boundaries with Triggertrap Ada (and a few prototypes in the process).
Over to you, Thomas:
Since the last update we’ve taken delivery of our stunning vac-cast production prototypes, and now it’s my job to test them to destruction.
Over the next few weeks, we’re going to be putting the kit through its paces, as I work through a 15-page testing guide!
This mammoth guide contains a plethora of different tests, from testing the software and UI, to seeing how well the hardware stands up to being left in a freezer for a few hours. Unfortunately, this does mean some very boring tests, such as testing how the jacks and connections hold up against being plugged and unplugged repeatedly, but equally there will be some pretty fun (i.e. destructive) tests to do - like seeing how the housing fares when dropped onto a range of surfaces from a range of heights.
However, before I begin torturing the kit too much, it seemed only fair to take the kit out and about for its first breath of fresh air to see how it coped out of the studio. Of course, we also wanted the opportunity to take some photos of the latest prototypes.
As we mentioned, we're in the middle of a load of intensive testing, and we'll be sharing more of the images from our testing as soon as we can, but for now, we just wanted to show a quick video of all the sensors working!
Throughout testing, we’re going to be trying to get some awesome photos of Ada in action. If there is something particular you’d like to see us try out then be sure to let us know in the comments!
