Satechi Smart trigger

The Satechi BT Smart Trigger, available now, is the ideal “appcessory” for prosumer photographers, allowing them to easily manage their DSLR camera directly from an iOS device.

The wireless timer features Bluetooth 4.0 technology with a range of 50 feet and a battery life of up to 10 years. The BT Smart Trigger is compatible with a wide range of cameras including the latest Canon EOS 5D Mark III, ESO 6D, Rebel T4i and EOS 60D. The Smart Trigger app is compatible with iPhone 5, iPad Mini and iPad.

The BT Smart Trigger app features multiple shooting modes giving photographers the freedom to easily capture the perfect shot during travels, outdoor adventures or everyday events.
  • Regular Shot – This mode allows the iOS device to act as a wireless shutter.  Touch the shutter control button to capture an image – ideal for a group shot where the photographer no longer needs to be left out.
  • Manual Shot – Manual Shot mode gives photographers the ability to take long exposures while in bulb mode.  This mode includes a switch to lock the shutter open to capture photographic techniques such as star trails, capturing fireworks or light painting.
  • Timed Shot – For advanced photography tasks such as time-lapses, Time Shot mode turns the iOS device into an intervalometer to capture and stitch together images of cool videos of traffic, weather or blooming flowers.
The Satechi BT Smart Trigger is available for an introductory price of $44.99 at Satechi.net and Amazon.com.  The BT Smart Trigger app is available for free at the Apple App Store.

Compatibility with Android devices such as the Galaxy SIII and Galaxy Note 2 will be available in March 2013.
