Triggertrap App on Pebble Smartwatch
From Triggertrap:
 
Pebble support from day one; Apple Watch coming very soon!
 
Triggertrap - creators of the world’s most versatile camera triggering solution - have today unveiled a brand new “Wearables” mode for their popular iOS app, Triggertrap Mobile. The new Wearables mode enables photographers to use a smartwatch to trigger a DSLR camera via an iOS app for the very first time.
 
Photographers everywhere now have the ability to trigger their camera remotely from their wrist. This can be incredibly useful for simple applications, such as taking self-portraits, to more advanced techniques like triggering long exposures for light painting or starting a timelapse sequence. All these possibilities lie within the photographer’s smartwatch.
 
This latest update supports the current range of Pebble smartwatches, as well as the upcoming Pebble Time. Meanwhile, Triggertrap’s development team are working hard to bring Apple Watch support to the app in the coming weeks.
 
As well as being a handy tool, using a smartwatch to take photos is great fun. An early user of the Pebble Smartwatch alongside Triggertrap’s Android app explained that using the watch to trigger the camera “makes me feel a bit like James Bond”.
 
The update is available to download on the iOS app store now and the Triggertrap app for Pebble is available on the Pebble App Store.
 
The Triggertrap Mobile Dongle (review) is available direct from Triggertrap.

What do you get when you combine 45 awesome photographers, 12 different countries, and 12,500 stunning photos? The world’s most glorious, globally crowdsourced timelapse film you have ever seen.
 
After the wild success of LapseLondon back in December, we just couldn’t stop ourselves from holding another timelapse event. And what better opportunity than Earth Day 2015!?
 
On April 22nd, the Triggertrap Team along with 45 other photographers across 5 continents set out with the same goal: To capture their view of the corner of the world they call home. Our team were out and about in London and Bristol, but they are only 2 out of 31 different towns and cities you can see in the breathtaking EarthLapse film. From windsurfers in South Africa, to traffic in Atlanta, with a couple of city sunsets thrown in for good measure, you can’t help but be amazed at the brilliance of Planet Earth.
 
In total, 50 staggering crowdsourced timelapse clips all shot during the same day have been brought together to create three and a half minutes of timelapse goodness like you have never seen before! But enough from us, you’d better take a look yourself…
 
The Triggertrap Mobile Dongle (review) is available direct from the Triggertrap website.

Triggertrap Timelapse Pro App
From Triggertrap:
 
Triggertrap Timelapse Pro is an advanced companion app to the hugely successful Triggertrap Mobile App, offering flexible and powerful modular timelapse creation to iOS users for just £3.99.
 
Retaining the same user friendly format and beautiful design that has made Triggertrap Mobile such a hit with photographers, Timelapse Pro inspires timelapse photographers to create stunning images, customisable to their specific needs and situation. The app enables users to create timelapse sequences composed of so-called ‘Intervalometer’ and ‘Delay’ modules. These modules can be configured, mixed and matched. Several modules can be added to each timelapse sequence. Users can reorder and delete modules as they please, adding even more flexibility to their sequence. Photographers can also create and save as many timelapse sequences as they like, giving the option to save favourite settings for different scenarios.
 
Timelapse Pro takes all this power and enables photographers to dig even deeper into the fascinating world of timelapse. The app has been created in response to the needs of Triggertrap’s community of timelapse photographers, and the intrepid team of Triggertrap developers will continue to add features that fill the gaps in the timelapse photographer’s toolkit. Put simply: Timelapse Pro enables photographers to take epic, complex timelapses in an uncomplicated fashion.
 
Timelapse Pro is available to buy in the App Store from today for just £3.99 ($4.99). Users combine the app with a Triggertrap Mobile kit to use the app with their camera, expanding the photographer’s existing camera gear on to a world of new timelapse options.
 
Features:
 
  • Create multiple timelapse sequences with custom names for quick access.
  • Intervalometer module. Select the intervals between shots and either how many exposures photographers want to take or the duration you’d like to take exposures for.
  • Delay module. Insert delays between intervalometer modules that last seconds, minutes, or even hours.
  • Add as many modules to your timelapse as you like, allowing you to build more complex sequences.
  • Reorder your modules to suit your needs.
  • Power Saver mode that darkens screen while the timelapse is running to save power.
  • Battery Threshold. Stops activity when your battery hits the threshold so you don’t kill your device’s battery.
  • Available on iOS devices running iOS 8 or newer, including iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch devices.

From Triggertrap:
 
LONDON – September 19, 2013 – Triggertrap, developer of creatively-thrilling camera triggering solutions which eliminate the barriers to exciting photographic techniques, today announced Triggertrap Mobile 2.0, the brand new version of its popular iOS and Android mobile apps. The latest generation disguises 14 oft-complex advanced remote triggering options in a visually seductive and simplified design which makes the app easier than ever before to pick up. By matching any SLR camera or advanced compact with the Triggertrap Mobile Dongle, these kissing cousins let the apps turn even the most novice shooter into a master of photographic Tantra.
 
Combining the capabilities of several expensive camera accessories into a single pocket-sized package, the 14 triggering modes in Triggertrap Mobile make advanced photographic techniques available to everyone - even photographic newbies. Timelapse, HDR photography, sound triggering and other gasp-inducing techniques instantly become accessible to any photo enthusiast looking to break the point-and-shoot mold.
 
With this new version, Triggertrap Mobile gets a fresh, modern look that makes it easier for each photographer to realize their unique vision. The new interface has been dressed down and simplified, making it easier and faster to switch between triggering modes - this means no more missing awesome photographic opportunities because you’re futzing around with dials. It also squashed the bugs that somehow snuck into previous versions of the app while implementing more user requested features than you could shake a lens cap at. One of the most requested upgrades allows the Android app to run in the background, even when the phone is locked, drastically reducing battery consumption for hours and hours of Triggertrap timelapsing goodness.
 
“Whether a relationship of platonic fun or deeply-woven lust, every relationship benefits from clear communication; with Triggertrap Mobile 2.0 we’ve proven to be good listeners. We saw the opportunity to combine what we learned from the first generation app with the tips we received from our diehard fans to make Triggertrap what we always envisioned it could be,” said CEO and Triggertrap inventor Haje Jan Kamps. “It certainly helps that our fans wear the pants around here and aren’t shy about letting us know what could be improved, and as a result, Triggertrap Mobile 2.0 is the best triggering solution you’ll find anywhere.”
 
Building on its predecessor’s success, the latest version maintains the app’s popular wireless triggering functionality and integration with the recently launched Triggertrap Flash Adapter that makes fierce high-speed photography available to anyone who fancies having a go.
 
Triggertrap Mobile Functionality
 
Whether you’re aiming at the sky in hopes of capturing shooting stars, want to capture the exact moment a baseball comes crashing through a window pane, or would like to set up a fully automatic photo booth, Triggertrap has you covered.
 
Triggertrap Mobile is free to download and can be used on its own with the device’s internal camera, or you can use Triggertrap’s affordable hardware ($30) to hook the app up to a supported SLR camera or flashgun.
 
Features include:

  • A barrel of Timelapses: Use Triggertrap as a basic intervalometer for timelapse capture, or feed your creativity a juicy dose of growth hormone: Bulb Ramping Timelapse enables seamless sunrise/sunset timelapses, HDR timelapse lets you combine the power of HDR and timelapses, and the Triggertrap-exclusive TimeWarp feature uses acceleration algorithms developed for animation to create more dynamic and natural-looking timelapses.
  • Shake it like a Polaroid Picture: Leverage the smartphone’s on-board sensors to release the shutter, using sound, GPS, vibration, and more. Best of all, there’s more sensor modes coming up soon.
  • Long Exposure HDR: Triggertrap Mobile makes Long Exposure HDR photography easy: Choose intervals from 1/3 to 2 EV steps, and up to 19 bracketed exposures per HDR set. Why would you need 19 exposures? Absolutely no idea, but it’s there if you want it.
  • DistanceLapse: Unique to Triggertrap and never before seen in a consumer device, this mode uses your smartphone’s GPS chip to fire the shutter over pre-determined distances. Brilliant for roadtrips!
  • Star Trail mode: Take a series of long exposure shots to get low-noise star trail photos, or hedge your bets to ensure you capture rare natural phenomena like meteors or slightly less natural, and slightly less rare phenomena like fireworks!
  • Wireless mode: Unique to Triggertrap, this Wi-Fi triggering technology allows photographers to leverage the range and speed of a Wi-Fi network to control more than 100 cameras at the same time. Matrix-style bullet-time, anyone?

Triggertrap Mobile 2.0 is available to download from the iTunes Store (iOS) now, and will be available from Google Play soon.
 
Amazon carries Triggertrap Mobile Dongles.
