Been trying out the free version of Cascable camera remote (external link) for Fujifilm cameras (Canon, Nikon, Sony & Olympus also), on my iPhone. It works really well, once you get it connected that is. There are settings in there for time-lapse and a calculator for serving there max time your shutter can go when shooting stars, and wanting sharpness and another calc for using ND filters. Also it can embed geotagging into the image although that is an easy workaround if you have a phone with you anyway. It's a nicer UX than the Fuji one.

Edit: One other handy feature is you can set your camera clock to the time on your phone, and that is handy if you shoot events with more than one camera. I know for me, at weddings, I have five cameras to work thought the files from so having the clocks set at the start is a big help when working through the different sections of the day.

There is a pro version with lots more features but at €32 I'm not sure I'll be trying that one out.

Looks interesting, seems like a more robust version of the Fuji app.

Is there a cable that allows it to control the camera? Or do they sell a device to do that? I can't seem to find the explanation on their website.

Thanks for the info Kim!

I'll be testing it out as I'll be documenting the largest VW show in Canada this weekend.

I have a long fiberglass paint pole with a Kacey paint pole adapter. I'll be daring to mount my Canon 80D or X-T2 on an umbrella bracket.

This photo is using a Canon app for my Canon 80D. I actually prefer using Cascable app for both camera's after doing some testing.

This image is from my Canon 80D but just as an example of using a kacey pole adapter for interesting perspectives :)

Ha, I have the same setup. Love those 026 swivel adaptors. Looking into hoiking a gimbal up on a pole so I get control of the camera angle but that's for next year budget (as is so much). Great down the back of a church when there is no gallery.

So this controller did a fantastic job. On my X-T2 I removed my battery booster pack to lighten up the load. The Kacey paint pole adapter was a solid product with my beefy fiberglass paint pole.

The hardest part of taking photos was looking at my phone in the extremely bright light as I composed the photo. It was a hard one man show holding the pole while taking the photo with my iphone.

Nonetheless people thought I had the biggest paint pole in the world LOL!!!

One photo was taken at the movie drive-in and the other photo was taken at a special event pancake breakfast.

I've never ever seen anyone do this type of photography at a car show. Just think I brainstormed this idea drinking coffee as I was editing photos. The results turned out exactly as I visioned it!!!
