Photographers looking for a smart way to control their camera directly from their smartphone might be interested in a new camera remote call the Pulse which has been designed by Alpine Labs and is now available to preorder priced at $90.
The Pulse camera remote allows you to use your smartphone to control your camera’s aperture, shutter and ISO settings enabling you to record video and take photographs in real-time as well as enjoy basic and advanced time-lapse photography settings.
Once charged Pulse can provide over 24 hours use on a single charge and connects to your smartphone using Bluetooth connectivity and is supported by both Android and iOS smartphone’s and is compatible with over 60 cameras. Check out the video below to learn more about all the features and functionality that can be added to your DSLR camera using the Pulse and its companion smartphone application.
Pulse gives you powerful control over your camera – wirelessly from your smartphone. It plugs straight into your DSLR or Mirrorless camera’s USB port, so whether you’re shooting photos, time lapse, or video, you get complete creative freedom in real time. Pulse handles your biggest project ideas – from day-long city timelapses to your next feature-length documentary. Because of its size you can take Pulse anywhere, and thanks to what it can do you’ll never want to leave it behind.
Made for Pros, great for beginners. – Pulse makes timelapse easier than ever for first timers whilst expanding the features and level of control for the most experienced timelapsers. No troubleshooting required. – Traditional triggers can’t tell you when things have gone wrong. The Pulse app notifies you about low battery or buffering time before they ruin your shoot.
Pulse’s Exposure Ramping features allows you to ramp your ISO and shutter speed so that you can capture day-to-night transitions (the “Holy Grail” of time lapses). Unlike shooting in Aperture or Shutter Priority, Exposure Ramping keeps your camera in manual so that your photo’s EXIF-Data is written properly for LRTimelapse workflows.
