What's New in Version 1.1.20
Thank you for all of your feedback, this is a major overhaul of the app addressing:
•Increased photo resolution
•Improved gallery functionality
•Issues with switching between front and back cameras
•Improved Facebook integration
•Resolved several UI bugs
Has its issues
I love the concept of a shutter clicker. But I cannot stand the fact that you have to use the LiveAction app. If Belkin is going to make us use their Camera app, the least they could do I'd make it a good app, and make it as close to the stock Camera app that comes with the phone.
I want to see a couple of things. First, I want to see auto focus. I use the shutter remote to capture photos from a boom and tripod. I use the boom to get angles that I can't get from free standing, which means I don't have the luxury of touching the object I want to have in focus. I also want to see a 'hold to lock' feature so I can hold my finger on an object and lock the focus and exposure in those cases I can press on the image that I want to keep in focus.
If these features were implemented on the LiveAction app I would rave about the app. I would tell all my friends and have them buy the shutter remote also.
As it stands, I would rarely recommend the shutter remote because I don't feel it is worth the money as it stands.
This app is good for a couple of things. Landscape photography and portraits. A family photo would be great with this app. But this app limits creativity. Photography is an art. You don't limit art.
Works with iPhone 5
Bought a used version of the bluetooth device and it worked with my iPhone 5, so did the app. Pics taken are at full resolution and they also magically show up in my Camera Roll. So it seems Belkin has done some work on this app.
I stick my iPhone on the end of a monopod (held on with a GILF) so I can hold the thing over my head about 4ft and remotely trigger the shutter.
Can't comment on anything else as I only use it for that.
Not what I expected
When I bought the grip, I was unaware I'd need an app for it to work. I want all of the features of my other camera apps with the ability to have an easy button to snap shots and be able to mount to a tripod. The app won't take shots in HDR and there are no options other than zoom, flash, and front or rear camera. I don't see much difference in photo quality between a non-HDR shot with or without the grip. Still, why can't this integrate with my normal camera functions? Without the options, this grip is almost useless.
