If you’re a keen amateur or perhaps professional photographer, you’ll probably be on the lookout for innovative new ways to capture your pictures. If that’s the case, you may want to take a look at a new product that has just been unveiled by Photojojo.
That new product is the ioShutter, and yes you’ve guessed correctly, it’s a remote shutter for when you need to take those steady shots. ioShutter has been designed to offer users an advanced remote shutter giving you all the functionality you would expect. It works with all iOS devices, whether that be your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Along with the dedicated app, it is also supplied with the relevant cable to directly attach to your DSLR.
Once attached, it will allow you to perform basic functions such as single shots, by simply touching the on-screen controls. And as mentioned, it will also allow for more advanced functions such as motor drive function, timer, time lapse, sound trigger, movement trigger and also bulb mode for those really long exposures. Also, another neat feature is the ability to mix the triggers, meaning you can use the time-lapse mode, but only after being activated by the sound trigger.
The ioShutter is currently compatible to use with Canon cameras, while also being compatible with some Samsung, Hasselblad and Pentax models. The company has said that a Nikon version will also be available soon, although there has been no mention of compatibility with any of the Sony Alpha cameras.
The ioShutter app is available as a free download from the Apple App Store, if you’re interested in checking out its features. The required shutter cable can be purchased directly from Photojojo for $70.
