Ratings and Reviews
All the facility for remote shooting including burst, stacking and bracketing. It works very nicely and, when compared to hardware that does no more than trigger the shutter and provide an intervalometer, the premium price is not too bad. This app puts complete control including live view on the screen of my mini ipad.
At least one person complains it is difficult to connect the app and camera. What might be overlooked is that the app itself does not make the connection to the camera. First, the wifi connection must be made between camera and ipad or phone. It is a network setup matter. Once that connection is made, the app will recognize and connect itself to the camera. You will be very frustrated if you expect the app to set up the wifi LAN between ipad or phone and the camera. It won’t because it can’t.
Wanted to love this.
App is a little slow when shooting with my Nikon D600, plus one thing not mentioned when I downloaded (and spent $60+ on a wu-1b) the app is that you need to buy the pro version to use a lot of the settings, like raw and bracketing. I was ok with this but there no light meter and “live” view doesn’t show what the photo will be exposed like. So for me it just didn’t work, love the idea of it and if they add a light meter and make it run faster I would buy it again.
Bad reputation for Helicon!!! 😭
This app is a poor iOS port. Mostly it’s seemed that they use existing codes from other platforms in a way for iOS. The file management is horribly bad. Also, it is unusable on iPhone X because of lack of compatibility of it’s UI with iPhone X form factor. When you see the poor quality of app from the perspective of it’s price point (for premium license) you will be hardly unsatisfied.
Developer Response ,
We're sorry the app left a poor impression, and it's understandable. There was a problem with iPhone X, that's fixed now. This is a remote control app, not a file manager, but we do try to improve the photo management aspect of the app. First of all, there is now a photo browser on the "Tools" panel where you can view the photos (both stored locally and on the camera's memory card) and copy them to other folder(s). In one of the next updates you will also be able to delete photos. Alternatively, you can export images to Photos and manage them there (menu -> Export images).
P. S. For what it's worth, this app is not a port.
