iOS Intervalometer app for M50
1

Can anyone recommend an iOS app that provides an intervalometer function for the M50 that is reasonably priced?

Based on a search of this forum, I see that Cascable is frequently recommended as an app (on iPhone or iPad) for the Canon M50 so I tried it out and discovered that they want $30/year (or $60 up front) for the pro version (which includes the intervalometer function).  It does a lot more just an intervalometer, but I don't want to spend 15% of what I paid for the camera for just one app.  All I need is an intervalometer.

Thanks!

Thanks for checking!  I already own an intervalometer but can't use it on my M50 because that camera lacks a jack to plug it into.  So I am looking for an app to run on my iPhone that can provide the intervalometer functions via a wireless connection to the M50.  Some folks recommend an app called "Cascable", but it is more expensive than I want to pay.  So I'm asking if anyone knows of a less expensive iOS intervalometer app?

Re: iOS Intervalometer app for M50

Hi, I have an M50 and it has a built in intervalometer - put it in movie mode and its at the bottom of menu 1 on the red menu section

It is adjustable but not as much as you may like but it has come out wiht good results.

Thanks for the response. I should have said that I am aware of the built-in movie time lapse function. The problem with the built-in function is that its limited to 1/30th of a second, which is inadequate for my purposes.  Since posting that question, I have successfully used Blue Tack and a bungie cord to hold down the shutter release button with Drive Mode selected to continuous release, and in that Manual Shooting Mode to get the M50 to take a sequence of long exposures for astrophotography.  Works like a charm.
