TriggerTrap, a remote DSLR trigger app that's already made a name for itself among iOS users, hit the Play Store today (with an Amazon App Store launch coming soon), bringing some impressive remote controls to DSLR-toting Android users.
The app, which costs $4.99, offers a surprisingly long list of fully customizable trigger modes from time lapse to distance lap (your camera will take a photo every 30m), long-exposure HDR, star trail mode, bulb ramping timelapse, and a cable release mode that supports exposures up to a full 24 hours.
This isn't the first remote trigger app we've seen for Android – Chainfire introduced DSLR Controller Beta just over a year ago, and Helicon Remote offered similar functionality back in February. What sets TriggerTrap apart, though, is the fact that it's compatible with more than 280 cameras, including not just Nikon and Canon models, but Panasonic, Olympus, Minolta, Leica, Kodak, and a ton more.
TriggerTrap also sets itself apart by relying on a specialized dongle (available from TT's website) and cable setup that hooks into camera-specific sync ports.
While the pieces may cost more than your average USB OTG connector and cable, TriggerTrap's solution is certainly sophisticated, and not too expensive either, with most camera cables running $10 and the latest and greatest dongle pegged at about $25 (the old version is just $10).
