Triggertrap Mobile 2.0 delivers a facelift to the first generation of the smartphone camera triggering app. Like the prior version Triggertrap Mobile 2.0 offers 14 triggering modes for your camera from your iPhone or Android device when you use Triggertrap’s $30 cable.
At first blush, the redesign is quite welcomed. While I love the capability that the Triggertrap app offers, the interface has not always been pleasant. The new layout seems to be much more user-friendly.
Additionally, Triggertrap 2.0 for Android now allows the app to run in the background, even when the phone is locked, which should drastically reduce battery consumption.
Triggertrap Mobile 2.0 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 already available in the iOS App Store and should be available soon in the Google Play Store. You can finder more details on Triggertrap.com.
