What's New in Version 1.0.3
Updated user interface design, fixed bugs
Manual shutter settings
I have a Canon T1i. With ver 1.0.3, time lapse is working. HDR isn't automatically crashing the app. Big improvements. However, Bramping and HDR both require you to manually set the shutter speed. I thought part of the point of bramping was to allow the camera to change your exposure for you as the light conditions changed while taking time lapse shots. What if I'm trying to do an all day time lapse? It would be dark in the morning, requiring a slow shutter speed, bright in the afternoon, requiring a fast shutter speed, and dark at night, again needing a slow shutter speed. No way to take all those variations into account with this app.
I still consider my purchase a big mistake and would advise anyone else NOT TO BUY THIS!
Interesting and cool camera control
I bought the trigger happy cable hoping to do some long exposures of stars. It worked great for that, but then I found the time lapse and hdr modes, and that opened up a whole new world for me. I have been doing all night time lapses of the stars from my deck In CO with trigger happy. It works great! This is the coolest app I've seen in a long while. I know they had trouble in the beginning but with bugs but now it works perfect for my needs. Thanks developers of th for fixing the stuff!
General lack of Interest now
After being a Kickstarter backer for this and waiting months for the cable only to find the multiple software bugs I lost interest. Now I know most of the bugs are worked out and it's a usable product finally but have such a sour taste from the first 6 months I see the cable laying in the bottom of my camera bag and am just fine with it staying there.
Sorry TH gang, I wanted to believe in the product and the cable issues I could have lived with, but the software bugs took way to long to fix.
