Cognisys Cognisys has become a valued supporter of our student’s image production in the area of stop-action photography. Students use the Cognisys StopShot triggering devices to produce photography for advertising, editorial, and other communications purposes. Students in the scientific photography and nature courses also use the Cognisys StackShot device for focus stacking work.

Cognisys was founded by a couple of guys who turned their hobbies into a job working for “the man,” and then the job (and “the man”) killed their hobby. Then something happened. They got bored. There was a snap. Some might say it was initiative and dedication – others would say that “idle hands are the devil’s tools.” Either way, they started turning electronics back into something fun. Both of them were fascinated by high-speed photography. Thus StopShot was born. They even use laser beams. How cool is that?
