Triggertrap - Creative ways of triggering your camera. The Triggertrap Mobile app has a heap of sensors to trigger your camera in exciting ways and a range of tools to create beautiful timelapses.

Triggertrap Mobile’s sensor modes are configurable so you can get trigger happy with your camera - any way you like! Triggertrap Mobile allows extreme exposure control, and you can push the limits of HDR photography.

IMPORTANT! Triggertrap requires the Triggertrap Mobile Dongle to connect your camera to your device! See below for details.

• "A nifty addition to any photographer’s toolkit" - Trusted Reviews
• "[Combines] the capabilities of several expensive camera accessories into a single, affordable product.\” - Shutterbug

Got an Apple Watch or a Pebble Smartwatch? We've got you covered! Wearables works with five of our most popular modes: Simple Cable Release, Self Timer, Press and Lock, Timed Release, and Timelapse.

Here are all the ways you can get triggering:

Sensor modes:
• Sound sensor - clap, whistle or tap
• Vibration sensor - vibrations and earthquakes
• Motion sensor - detects movement. Catch people with their hand in the cookie jar!
• Peekaboo - facial recognition

Timelapse modes:
• Timelapse - travel through time
• TimeWarp - timelapse with acceleration
• DistanceLapse - perfect for road trips
• Bramping - bulb ramping timelapse to keep your exposure smooth
• Star Trail mode - extreme exposure control to create stunning images of the night sky

HDR modes:
• LE HDR - Long exposure HDR sets with up to 19 exposures
• LE HDR Timelapse - create timelapses with all the detail of HDR

Along with all of these, there are a variety of other cable release modes, including Simple Cable Release, Self Timer and Press and Lock options, and timed exposures up to 100 hours long! We also have a handy Solar Calculator to find out the sunrise and sunset times wherever you are, and an ND Calculator to ensure your exposures are just the right length when using neutral density filters.

To connect your iOS device to your camera buy a Triggertrap Mobile Dongle separately. See the Triggertrap website for a list of supported cameras, and for more information. Currently more than 300 camera models are supported, with support added for new cameras all the time.

Long Exposure HDR (LE-HDR) mode supports shutter speeds from several hours down to 1/15th second, and can do up to 19 bracketed shots with 1/3, 1/2, 1 or 2 EV steps.

What's New

Version 4.1.4

We have taken steps to make Triggertrap Mobile compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and we've made a few minor adjustments along the way.

We no longer track any of your data inside of the app, nothing at all - and to ensure we're fully compliant to the rules; all of our previous third-party services or accounts have been deleted. This means that we've deleted all of the historical data that we'd previously gathered too.

As well as preparing for GDPR, we've fixed the broken feedback and support page, removed all references to the Triggertrap shop, and updated the Cable Selector to find Mobile Kits on eBay. We've also made a few improvements for iPhone X users, and we'll aim to make the app silky-smooth for the iPhone X in the next update.

Enjoy ~ Alex & Ross.

Hervorragende APP


Nachdem die Kit-Bestellung sehr schnell versendet wurde und heute bei mir ankam, musste ich die APP an einer Nikon D500 gleich ausgiebig testen. Echt faszinierend, welche Möglichkeiten sehr simpel umgesetzt wurden. Funktioniert 1a - ich bin sehr zufrieden. Für mich ein guter Kauf.

Ohne Autofokus unbrauchbar!


Ich habe die App aus verschiedenen Gründen einige Zit nicht benutzt. Ich muss sagen, die generelle Abschaltung des Autofokus ist ziemlich blöd. Ich habe dies gern und erfolgreich genutzt und hatte niemals Probleme damit. Ein Schalter in der App um den Autofokus anschalten zu können wäre hier die richtige Lösung gewesen. Für meine Anwendungen ist die App und der Dongel so nicht mehr nutzbar. Schade, hatte mir bisher viel Freude und schöne Bilder ermöglicht... Ohne Autofokus kann ich nichts mehr damit anfangen. Mein Use Case ist anders gelagert und erfordert den Autofokus. Ich wünsche mir, dass die Entwickler noch einmal überlegen ob ein Autofokus Schalter in der App nicht einige Kunden wieder dazu bewegen kann die App und den Dongle weiterhin zu nutzen.

Leider nach Update unbrauchbar


Früher mal eine super App. Nach dem Update nicht mehr nutzbar!
