Charleston startup, ShutterBug Remote, has announced the release of their Android app. Launched in 2010, ShutterBug Remote allows you to wirelessly control your DSLR camera and trigger the shutter from your mobile device. Just plug the remote device into your camera and connect it to any Bluetooth LE enabled device from up to 300 feet away.
The new update features a complete redesign of the user interface and experience to inspire your photography and help you discover creative ways to shoot. The app is compatible with any Android 4.3+ device supporting Bluetooth LE and available in the Google Play Store.
“Not only is the latest ShutterBug for Android update great to look at, but it has new features. Users can expect to see a completely overhauled user experience and design, new support for HDR–LE [high dynamic range, long exposure] and some minor bug fixes. This update also paves the way for a recently established partnership with Eye–Fi, there is much more to come!” said Ryan Roberts, who co-developed ShutterBug Remote with Michael Wiechowski.
ShutterBug Remote’s unique features include the ability to program your camera to take portraits, long exposures, night photography, and time-lapse sequences without a direct line of site to shoot even if the mobile device is turned off.
The ShutterBug Remote app is also available in the Apple App Store for users with any Apple device supporting Bluetooth LE such as the iPhone 4S+, the new iPad, and iPad mini running iOS 7 or later. The remote device is sold separately.
