Tech Tuesday: Turn your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad into a remote shutter

21 Dec

There’s been a lot of buzz in the news lately about photographers using their iPhones – from adding on-the-fly lighting effects to shooting entire weddings and tons of other practical uses in between.

Now you can download a FREE app from blueSLR which turns your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad into a remote shutter release – and works from up to 300 feet away from your camera. You can also change aperture and shutter speed settings, and use GPS tagging as well.

There’s a few requirements:

• An iPhone, iPod touch (second generation and above), or iPad
• The FREE app from blueSLR
The blueSLR dongle ($149) – a compact, lightweight, wireless and fits in a camera case, purse or pocket.
• A Bluetooth-enabled Nikon dSLR

Since it works with Bluetooth, it doesn’t require line of sight like Nikon’s own IR remotes. A sorry Canon, Androids and BlackBerry users… you’re not supported, but there are rumors that there will be something coming out for you too, in the future…
