PhotoIRmote is a DSLR Remote Timer Controller for android devices. It allows you to shoot your camera remotely, using an IRmitter (IR emitter) connected to your phone or a CableMod (modified cable).
Since most of the smartphones don’t have a built-in IR emitter, you’ll need to DIY an IRmitter by your own. It’s really easy and cheap (~ 1$). Probably you already know how to build it. If you don’t know how to do it yourself, you can visit our DIY Tutorials section. Also, if you want to use the cable, you’ll have to built it yourself by 1$ and following a couple of easy steps.
Timer Controller (intervalometer) shooter:
You can use PhotoIRmote as a programable shutter release.
|Self-Timer Mode. It sets when the shutter opens.|
|Interval Timer Mode. It sets how frequently the shutter opens.|
|Long-Exposure Timer Mode. It sets how long the shutter stays open.|
|Exposure Count Mode. It sets how many exposures the camera will make in total. If you set the counter to 000, the number of exposures will limited only by the amount of memory card space available. You can stop pressing again the Release Button.|
You can also combine modes. For instance, you can program PhotoIRmote to wait 5min, release the shutter, then take a total of 25 exposures at 2min intervals.
