How often have you set a timer for your camera and then attempted to get in the photo, with or without success? Triggertrap’s Mobile Dongle kit along with the Triggertrap Mobile smartphone app work together to make sure everyone gets in the photo.
The hardware is a connection kit for most any digital single-lens reflex camera or advanced compact camera that is triggered by the app on your smartphone.
Dongles are available for 17 of the major camera makers on the Triggertrap site. Connect the specific connection side of the cable to your camera and the other cable into the other end of the dongle and the 3.5mm headphone port on your smartphone or tablet.
The Triggertrap Mobile 2.0 app has 14 advanced remote-triggering options. The Wi-Fi mode creates a network to control more than 100 cameras.
