No, it Titan2 REMOTE is designed to function seamlessly with Canon DSLR cameras only.
The Titan2 CASE (housing) can only fit lenses with diameters of 77 mm or smaller. For wider diameter lens, you can consider using the TBOX TANK which can cater to lenses with diameters of up to 100 mm.
*Please note: The TBOX Titan2 cannot fit a fisheye lens.
There are no pre-determined camera settings for Titan2 to function. However, here is how we usually set our cameras when we produce a time-lapse of a building construction.
- Aperture priority
- 15 minutes interval
- Lens on manual focus
- Spot metering
- Auto white balance
Yes, it can to run 24/7 on solar power without AC, as long as the solar panel is able to recharge for at least 6 hours under uninterrupted full sunlight. The internal power can last up to an estimated 3 to 4 days while shooting at 30-minute intervals with a 3 hourly sync via Wi-Fi or 3G/4G network.
*Please note: Continuous overcast sky or rainy weather for more than 3 to 4 days at a stretch could affect the recharging. Charging the systems using AC power is advised.
The Titan2 software can be set from “1 photo per 3 seconds” to “1 photo per hour” depending on your time-lapse requirements. You can also determine the time of the day to start and end recording.
*Do note that battery consumption will be higher when shooting at closer intervals.
Yes, you can shoot and sync in RAW and JPEG formats. If you plan to sync the raw files to a cloud storage with a cellular network, it will take a relatively long time, as well as incur costly data charges. We recommend using LAN WiFi for this purpose.
The weatherproof rating of the Titan2 CASE (housing) is IP66. The entire Titan2 remote system is rated at IP55 – because the REMOTE control module requires air vents for cooling.
We recommend restarting the system every 1 month to refresh the cache.
Titan2 REMOTE Solar is a natural shelter for the system. For Titan2 REMOTE AC, we recommend using a shade over a system to reduce long exposure from direct sunlight.
The Titan2 remote system comes with a supplied 64GB microSD card for primary storage in the control module. All images taken by the DSLR will be stored here. The Canon DSLR camera does not require any storage cards as the images will be stored in the microSD card in the control module.
The working temperature is Titan2 Remote AC is -15 to 50-degree Celsius. For the Titan2 Remote Solar, the working temperature is 0 to 50-degree Celsius.
The solar panel comes with a large capacity lithium battery which is restricted by outbound air freight regulations in Singapore. Therefore, the lithium battery will be shipped out from the lithium battery manufacturer based in Shenzhen, China. The lithium battery is very easy to install. You will receive the instructional manual when you purchase the system.
REMOTE ACCESS FAQ
Upon purchase, we will send you a private video link on how to set up. There is also a detailed setup instructional manual that comes with the purchase.

The pre-installed ‘SYNC’ Software allows multiple online syncs to any location on the Internet, FTP, etc that allows remote sync. To lower cellular data charges, we recommend that you sync to your cloud storage every three hours. This means, at a specified time, all the images taken within that period will be uploaded together.
