The $29.99 Triggertrap Mobile Dongle lets you use your smartphone as a remote shutter release for digital SLR or advanced compact cameras. Though it can be used as a simple shutter release, its true strength is painless setup of time-lapse and HDR photography.
It also will allow you to trigger the shutter release with sound, which comes in particularly handy when paired with its Flash Adapter for high-speed photography.
The dongle is compatible with more than 280 cameras and the apps, which recently got a complete redesign and new features, are available for iOS and Android. Note that on the Android side it does require a phone with 4.2.2 or later.
