Rated 2/5 based on 3 customer reviews.
I could never get the program to work and the customer service never contacted me back. I saw many people had similar problems with absolutely no help from the company. There are better programs out there that do the same thing so don't waste your time with this one.
Worth it as a free app for studio work or self portraits
I just finished putting this through a vigorous evening of studio and location shooting. While it isn't the most intuitive program to set up, is very limited in its application, and tends to be a bit buggy (more on that in a second), it DOES come in handy for some very specific shooting conditions.
In it's defense, this app does do what it's supposed to about 85% of the time Having said that, it's only useful when you have access to a wifi connection AND the luxury of shooting tethered (and in a lot of cases, if you're shooting tethered anyway you probably wouldn't need to use this to fire your shutter. Right? You have that option - and plenty more - in LR). This will not work without a wifi connection, so it isn't going to be useful for me on at least 75% of my location shoots. Out of those, it can be very impractical to have to lug around a laptop in addition to all of my camera, lighting, and background equipment. That makes it useful on only 5-10% of my location shoots. Kind of a fail, but it's free. Unfortunately, it's performance is highly dependent on the speed and performance of the wifi connection you have available, AND it can be very slow to display the photo you just shot. But it's free. It is buggy on start up (I had to actually power down my iPhone and restart twice), and it wasn't happy when my battery hit 20%, but it went back to work with a trip to my camera to wake everything back up. And have I mentioned that it's free?
While this did save me some time and a lot of trips to the camera, I have to say that I can't believe the full "pro" version is $19.99. If you're shooting under the conditions that this is designed for, you're most likely going to have metered your light and be using a tripod. Having the ability to change shutter speed, ISO, and aperture are pretty minor capabilities under those conditions, and you can get the same features shooting tethered in Lightroom without having to screw around with your wifi or wait (and wait) to review your shots from your iPhone. Even if the full version were free (which it is my opinion it should be, and I'll tell you why), it is very limited with how and when you can use it, and isn't suited for most shooting conditions.
Before spending $20 on an app that will not be useful most of the time, I'd take that money and put it towards an actual wireless shutter release: they work anywhere, under every condition, are incredibly reliable, and you don't have to worry about having a laptop, mucking around with a program for a server, or being at the mercy of a wifi connection.
After all of that, it really did save me tonight. I needed a wireless shutter release for some self portrait work, and this will fill the gap until I get a proper remote wireless shutter release. I set the two second delay on my camera so I'd have an alarm before the strobes were about to fire, and this worked about 85% of the time including time lost due to the various snafus I encountered while shooting with this. I see no point in spending $20 for the full version, but I'd probably download it if it were free for the few times it would/could be useful.
Thanks to onOne for the assistance tonight. I don't begrudge your product, just found some limitations that wouldn't make the full version an economical purchase for me personally.
Great app!! Canon t1i
Worked great! I needed a remote and found this. It worked perfectly and saved us. We were able to do a family portrait with two kids under three. The app let's you view your photos so we were always able to stay in position, set the camera on continuous and were able to get a few shots where we were all smiling. Great app!!
