Remote control app for the iPhone

edited May 2012 Posted in » Canon 60D Forum
I've been looking into remotes mainly for time lapse photography. This app (see here) looks promising for Android.

I was hoping for something similar for iPhone, but all I could find was an app to control a DSLR while its tethered to a computer. I know a regular remote controller would do just fine, but it would be nice to cut down on the number of gadgets to carry around since I already carry my iPhone. :)

    My friend has Triggertrap that works on his iPhone and can control his camera via a cable or using the IR cable he made.
  • Howdy @acmeman - I agree with @withns. The Triggertrap app is a fantastic tool for time-lapse photography. In order to control your 60D with the App you'll need to buy the Triggertrap Mobile Dongle and the CL-E3 Camera Cable, both of which are available on their website (triggertrap.com). Happy shooting! :)

    Darn, I already bought a remote timer from ebay. I'll check it out anyway because I love gadgets! :)

    The trigger trap does so much more than the standard remotes. You will have a blast finding out all it can do.

    As I'm fairly new to photography, I'm a little puzzled about this triggertrap device.

    I have taken some night shots (all well under 30") so I've never needed the bulb feature but, if I ever needed it, how would I know how long an exposure was needed? As it could be one second more than the 30" max on the camera or it could be 20" so how would I know what the correct exposure was?

    Being one of the strange people on the planet, I don't have a mobile phone so I wouldn't be able to use the phone for the Triggertrap. Would the Triggertrap still be useful to me?

    Any further information regarding the Triggertrap would be most appreciated.

    Triggertrap is an app you download to your smart phone, so no, not useful for you.

    As for the exposure question, for my star trails I use anywhere between f/1.5 and f/2.5 minimum depending on the ambient light.
