We love photo gear and bet you do, too.
But sometimes just loving isn’t enough. Sometimes you take matters into your own hands because it’s fun, educational, and fills a photo niche.
Remote Tether Your dSLR to Your Smartphone
SmugIntern Kevin Harrington came to us years ago with little but a burning passion for photography. We’re sad that he’s all grown up, now. But somehow, between his Frankencam, mountain biking and morning classes, he’s found time to create the TriggerHappy Camera Remote and put it up on Kickstarter:
This idea totally toasts our bagels. You get one cable and an iPhone or Android app to control your dSLR on the go.
Why is it better?
It’s easier. Simpler. More versatile. And who doesn’t already do it all on their smartphone?
- Fire the shutter (duh!)
- Throw it into bulb mode for suuuuuuuper long star trails.
- Bracket for HDRs.
- Bramping. AKA “bulb ramping” for time-lapses when the light varies.
