Welcome to the first of an occasional series of posts called “Nick-T recommends” where I’ll highlight some of the bits and pieces I use and like.
First up and just released is James Madelin’s “ioShutter” a shutter release cable for your iPhone, iPod touch and iPad that controls your SLR, advanced compact and medium format camera.
You may have come across Mr Madelin before in the form of his excellent ringflash-for-flashgun the Orbis . Well now he’s done it again and I cannot believe no-one has thought of this before.
The good news is that the ioShutter will work with your hasselblad, I have tested it!
The App offers fun features like “ClaptoSnap” which as the name suggests is a sound activated shutter, I imagine with a bit of tweaking you could use this to capture splash shots for example.
The ioshutter also offers self timer and bulb settings and with the pro version, time lapse features, something that I see people looking for all the time. Now I just need a hot shoe adaptor for my 4s.
