Triggertrap Mobile iOS app turns iPhone into DSLR trigger

New iOS app triggers your DSLR camera to take pictures in a host of pre-programmed ways. Triggertrap specialises in creative time-lapse photography, but can also be set-up for facial and sound recognition

 

A new app for iOS devices allows you to automatically trigger your DSLR camera through a host of innovative shooting modes.

The Triggertrap Mobile app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch features over a dozen shooting modes including creative distance and time-lapse features and the ability to take a snap every time it recognises a face, sound or movement.

Perhaps the most interesting elements are Distance-Lapse and Eased Timelapse modes, ideal for road-tripping and capturing the journey. The former, Distance-Lapse mode, will automatically trigger a shot at a predetermined distance, making use of the GPS signal on your iOS device.

That means entire journey's can be captured and easily stitched together as a video, and if the app is programmed to take a picture every 100m it'll appear that you're traveling at a constant speed.

Eased Timelapse, on the other hand, "uses mathematical formulas to vary the interval between photographs dynamically.

"The result is that, in the assembled time-lapse video, it appears as if time speeds up at the beginning of the video, and slows back down at the end – perfect for creating beautiful effects," according to the press release.

The app, which works with over 300 cameras, links up with your DSLR through a simple dongle which plugs into your headphone jack. Without the Triggertap dongle, the app can still be utilised using the iPhone's own camera. There's a free version, which features three of the modes contained within the £6.99 premium app.

The launch of the app follows the release of the Kickstarter-funded pyhsical Triggertrap gadget, which performs many of the same functions, but can be infinitely programmed to suit your own photography needs.
