For several months now I have been eagerly following the development of the Triggertrap. This awesome little devise promises to expand the options for taking a photo beyond the traditional few options of pressing the shutter, holding the shutter down (for rapid fire), or pressing the shutter and running to get into the photo.
I’ve been particularly keen to give the TT a go at a dance competition, just imagine taking a photo whenever a dancer moves into your pre-focused well lit spot. Once I get my hands on one (they are on the verge of shipping the first units) I will give that a go and let you know how it goes.
However, the clever people over at Triggertrap, have another trick up their sleeves. They have just announced Triggertrap Mobile. That’s right, you can now trigger your camera from your mobile! It’s a iOS app, so it can run on your iPhone/iPod/iPad, and with the help of a nifty little cable, it can trigger a real camera! How awesome is that? Just take a look at this video and see if you are excited as I am.
I was lucky enough to be one of the beta testers for this little device, which means I have had it on my phone for a while now. As I was asked to keep it a secret, I couldn’t go playing with it at any big events, but I did fall in love with the timelapse mode. This is so much fun. Just take a look at the video below I made using the TT Mobile connected to my 7d while in Spain the other week.
The starts of the video are Ryan and Ksenia – a pair of awesome dancers I was privileged to be able to work with. When I first started getting them to film this I’m pretty sure they thought I had taken leave of my senses
