The Cascable app—an iOS app that can lets you control just about every Wi-Fi enabled camera on the market from your Apple device—first came on the scene in 2015. Since then, it's received several major updates, but last week's release of Cascable 3.2 is arguably the most important update yet. The update introduced Cascable Recipes, and turned the app into "the most powerful photography automation tool available on mobile platforms."

Recipes—an extension of Cascable's built-in Shutter Robot intervalometer feature—allow you to automate your photo sequences in incredibly minute detail. Forget setting a basic interval, exposure value and number of shots, Recipes go way beyond that.

As you can see from the screenshot below, you can create as complex a 'recipe' as you want for your time-lapses or exposure brackets.

You could change your shutter speed, aperture, ISO, or exposure compensation between every single shot if you'd like; you can even add advanced 'Variables,' values that can be changed while the recipe is running. In the example below, the bulb length is being multiplied by 2, and 30 seconds is being added to the interval, between each shot:

And finally, you don't have to worry about wasted time and memory card space when you're building complex recipes. Cascable includes a built-in camera simulator that will let you check your multi-hour time-lapse recipe in seconds, in the comfort of your own home. The system runs your recipe, cutting the wait times, and spits out a log so you can see exactly what will happened when you're on location.

The latest version of Cascable is available for free on the iTunes App store, and you can create and test Recipes in the free version. If you want more advanced features like Variables, you can upgrade to the Pro version, which will cost you either $2 per month on subscription, or a one-time purchase of $30.

One More Thing

For the developers out there, Cascable did make one other announcement alongside its Recipes update. In addition to Cascable 3.2, the company also released CascableCore, a Software Development Kit (SDK) for iOS and macOS that gives developers access to Cascable's camera connectivity tech, so they can bake it into their own apps.

"The CascableCore SDK allows you to concentrate on building great applications," reads the release, "while we handle interfacing with well over 100 supported cameras."

Cascable Core is available on a 30-day evaluation period for "products and companies that meet our partnership criteria." For more information on CascableCore, click here.
