Triggertrap Mobile: the ultimate camera remote

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 in Version 4.1

All new, all shiny, still red - Triggertrap Mobile 4.0. We’ve completely rewritten the core of our app to improve speed, efficiency, and accuracy. We find those things pretty exciting, but we’ve also been beavering away on new features, including the single most requested feature: night mode.

To turn Triggertrap Mobile into the perfect companion for photography in the dark, a simple switch lives in the settings section of the app. The colors have been chosen to be subtle yet clear in darkness, and not dazzle you when you use the app, making it ideal for high speed photography in studios, light painting in the garden, and for astrophotography in the field. These colors are designed to work with the screen brightness turned right down, minimizing light coming out the phone, and maximizing battery life.

But we’ve not just painted it black. Wearables mode has been taken to the next level, with support for every mode except Press and Hold and Quick Release. This makes it perfect for starting sensor modes from a distance so you don’t accidentally trigger them yourself, keeping your long exposure HDRs sharp and your star trails steady.

Also, a little something for ND Filter lovers - Timed Release now has our ND Calculator baked right in. In Timed Release simply tap the ND filter icon (the split circle), enter your base shutter speed, your neutral density filter strength and tap to automatically put that value into Timed Release. No more forgotten shutter speeds and fewer taps and swipes. Easy!

To make sure Timed Release and ND Calculator work reliably together, we have limited the fastest shutter speed to 1/6th second. For anything faster we recommend setting the shutter speed on your camera and using Triggertrap as a cable release.

Another little tweak to tell you about is for our iOS 9 users, who can now use Spotlight to open features inside the app. Swipe left (or down) on the home screen, type the mode you’re after, and you can be teleported straight in!

As ever, our bug-crush shoes have also been out in force, stamping out bugs far too numerous (and boring) to mention here.

Any feedback or suggestions? We love to hear what you think, please send us an email to to let us know!

Customer Reviews

Very cool so far!

I have only played around a little bit but I can see tons of potential here! Using a smartphone to set timing or shoot based on detections (faces, motion, sound, etc.) can be very handy.

Of course you do need a special cable for your exact camera (that should be fairly obvious), but they're not terribly expensive.

My only issue so far is my iPhone case which is a tight fit for the TriggerTrap. Headphones, etc. all fit just fine but the TT has to be in just right or it won't work.


I was so happy to get Triggertrap but when it came and I tried to use it, it didn't work... So I emailed Triggertrap's support team and had Thomas help me out. He asked me a lot of questions and gave me a ton of things to try but none of them worked. He said I must have a faulty device and he was going to sent me a new one. After I got that it all worked perfectly! This was a great device and I love it, thanks Thomas and Triggertrap for helping me out and getting me a new one that works awesomely!!

What they forgot to tell you is...

unless you're prepared to pay $37. for a receiver, the app is worthless. It doesn't work as a stand alone tool.
