Foolography has announced a partnership with Triggertrap to bring new functionality to its tiny Unleashed Bluetooth camera controller that we covered at Photokina. The Unleashed works with many Canon and Nikon DSLRs and allows photographers to wirelessly control camera settings, such as aperture, shutter speed or ISO, and trigger the shutter or video using a smartphone app. You can also control multiple cameras, capture time-lapses and geotag your images. 

Triggertrap is a wired solution that is also controlled via a smartphone app. It focuses on offering creative ways of triggering a camera, such as vibration, facial recognition or motion sensors among others. A future version of the Triggertrap app will now be compatible with the Unleashed hardware dongle, allowing for wireless triggering with the Triggertrap modes. 

“We are often asked whether it’s possible to have a wireless version of Triggertrap Mobile,” says Mat Rodger, Managing Director of Triggertrap, “But so far, we have been focusing on our wired solutions. We are very excited to team up with the foolography team to deliver more options to our users, and to help foolography’s users trigger their cameras using our app.” 

foolography partners with Triggertrap to bring sensor-based triggering to Unleashed

Berlin 26 September 2016 -- Berlin-based foolography (foolography.com) today announced that it is partnering with London-based Triggertrap (Triggertrap.com) to add additional functionality to its popular Kickstarter-backed Unleashed product.

foolography’s Unleashed (http://kck.st/2c8lxlu) is primarily a camera remote app. It helps Canon and Nikon users take full control of their cameras from their phones. From their app users can change all the important settings (aperture, shutter speed, ISO etc.) of their DSLR, take photos, start and stop video recording, control multiple cameras, take exposure-ramped-timelapses, geotag the images in-camera and preview thumbnails.

Triggertrap Mobile doesn’t offer as much control over the camera’s settings, but adds interesting and creative ways of triggering a camera to the mix, including sound, vibration, facial recognition, motion sensors, and much more.

Today, the two companies announced that Triggertrap will be including foolography’s Unleashed compatibility in a future version of the app. Instead of having to connect to the camera using the company’s Triggertrap Mobile Dongle, users will be able to use foolography Unleashed to trigger their cameras wirelessly based on a the triggering modes available in Triggertrap’s app.

“We are often asked whether it’s possible to have a wireless version of Triggertrap Mobile,” says Mat Rodger, Managing Director of Triggertrap, “But so far, we have been focusing on our wired solutions. We are very excited to team up with the foolography team to deliver more options to our users, and to help foolography’s users trigger their cameras using our app.”

“We have been huge fans of Triggertrap for a long time,” says Oliver Perialis, CEO at foolography, “and are very glad to announce this partnership. We always planned to open up our triggering API to other developers and couldn’t be happier that Triggertrap’s app is the first one out of the gates. This is just the beginning, and we hope developers will develop creative apps compatible with the Unleashed.”
