Bluetooth Camera Control

by Staff

Solar Spark Productions Remotomatic Camera Solar Spark Productions has launched Remotomatic Camera 1.1 for iOS, an update to their app that provides Bluetooth remote control of any iPhone or iPod touch camera. Designed as a transmitter/receiver, it enables the user to control most camera functions remotely, producing high quality pictures with a tripod-mounted iPhone.

The photographer may include themselves in the shot using either the remote or the self-timing, delayed shutter release. Other features include a Fast Snap mode, and a 7x digital zoom. The version 1.1 update adds remote control of the video camera as well, and also permits the use of an iPad as a controller. The app must be installed on two iOS devices for Bluetooth, remote control functionality.

An ideal solution for the iPhone photographer with unsteady hands, Remotomatic Camera provides wireless remote control of a tripod-mounted iPhone or iPod touch. Mounting the device on a tripod ensures blur-free photos, and for moving subjects the app includes a high shutter speed Fast Snap mode. Using the device with a tripod also has other benefits. It makes it possible for the photographer to leave the camera unattended so they may be included in the picture. The photographer can snap the picture using any Bluetooth enabled iOS device, or they may set the 5 - 15 second delayed release shutter.

Feature Highlights:

  • Remotomatic Camera is a Bluetooth enabled remote control camera
  • Control any iPhone/iPod touch still or video camera
  • Use any Bluetooth enabled iOS device as the remote control
  • Remote control of shutter, stop/start, zoom, flash, front/rear camera, and Fast Snap mode
  • Ideal app for remote control of a tripod-mounted iPhone or iPod touch
  • Release the shutter without touching the screen
  • Digital 7x zoom, Fast Snap mode, and self-timing delayed release shutter

On launch in portrait mode, the app displays three buttons: Remote Controller, Bluetooth Controlled Camera, or Self-Timing Camera. In Controller mode the app allows remote control of the still camera shutter, the video camera start/stop, a 7x digital zoom for both cameras, the Fast Snap function of the still camera, flash on/off, and camera switching front/rear. In the slave, Bluetooth Controlled Camera mode, as well as the delayed release Self-Timing Camera mode, additional controls also allow user control of video/still camera, and Bluetooth connect/disconnect.
