Triggertrap: Trigger A DSLR Camera With Your iPhone, iPad Or iPod touch (Video)

Although remotely triggering a DSLR camera is nothing new, the Kickstarter-funded Triggertrap was a bit more exciting as it allowed you to do that via diverse stimuli like lights and sounds.  But as of late, it has got a lot more exciting when the company introduced the Triggertrap Mobile app.  What once cost $75, is now just $19.98 for both the software and hardware.

The app will run on any iPhone, iPad or iPod that uses iOS 5, and you will have to buy a $9.99 dongle which should be connected to your DSLR by cable or infrared. Connect the dongle to your iDevice and then you can simply use your device’s sensors as triggers (motion, facial recognition and more).

The app, which will also gives you control over the focus and flash, works with over 300 cameras and specialises in distance-lapse and time-lapse photography. Its Distance-Lapse mode utilizes your device’s GPS to take a photo every so many meters. Stitch the photos together and the whole road trip will look as if it took place at the same speed. Via the Eased Timelapse mode, the stitched videos speed up at the beginning and slow down towards the end.

There’s no need to worry if you do not have a separate camera as the app will work fine with the iOS device’s built-in camera. There is also a free version of the app, but that just features three modes. Check out the videos to know more about Triggertrap.
