An iPhone Remote Shutter? It’s a Snap!

For a while now it has been possible to take a picture with your iPhone using the volume controls on the phone and this also extends to the controls on the headphone mic too. But what if you need to be further away than the length of the headphone cable? Turns out that there is a cheap (under three quid) device for that.

This little two button widget works over bluetooth and emulates the keyboard for sending the command to trigger the camera shutter. It is incredibly simple to use in that you pair it with your device, start the camera (it works with the stock camera app and Camera+ in my tests) and then press the appropriate button, big for iPhone, small for Android. The button also works as a toggle when taking videos so you can start and stop the recording.

And that’s it. Simple and works well. Grab your’s here from Amazon.
