If you’re looking for a cute and clever way of remotely triggering your smartphone’s camera, gadget-maker Gizumon has two little Bluetooth devices just for you.
The first one is a Bluetooth remote shutter shaped like a 135 film canister. The second is another Bluetooth remote trigger designed to look like a classic twins-lens reflex camera, such as the Mamiya 330 or Rolleiflex.
Both triggers use Bluetooth 3.0 to remotely fire off your smartphone’s shutter (it replicates the volume shutter button all iOS devices and most Android devices feature) from a distance of up to 10m. The remotes are charged via MicroUSB and can trigger roughly 30,000 times before needing to be recharged.
The 135 canister trigger will set you back approximately 1,980 yen (US$16) when it goes on sale, while the TLR shutter will cost 2,500 yen (US$20). There isn’t a particular release date noted, but you can keep an eye on Gizumon’s Amazon store to see when they’re in stock.
