Today I’ll be showing you a new Bluetooth Shutter Remote sold on DCkina. What’s nice about this Shutter Remote is it’s made for iOS and Android devices. I used this remote quite a few times and really love it. I love it so much that I have made this my main shutter remote and put my Muku Shuttr aside.
This is what you get from the box, a shutter remote and micro USB cable to charge your remote. So when you take you remote out of the box make sure you charge it first before you start using it. When you plug in your remote, a light will turn on. You will know when the remote is fully charged after the light has been turned off.
Connecting your emote is really easy, all you have to do is go into your settings on your iDevice and tap on the Bluetooth. When you first get the remote you might get “keyboard” showing up on the light of item you’ve connected on your Bluetooth. Just tap on the “keyboard” and you will PG-9019 after you’ve successfully connect your Bluetooth with the remote and iDevice.
Now with Android devices I don’t have full details on how to connect with your devices because most devices have a different way of taking screen shots depending on what OS you have and device. I know with the newer Samsung devices they have the wave your hand to make a screen shot. I know your Bluetooth connections are going to be through your settings.
– Bluetooth remote control camera shutter self-timer, facilitating self photo-taking, without installing any software
– Built-in lithium battery, can take about 60000 pictures by each fully charge
– Supports 10 meters self control
– Five function keys: power ON/Off, Bluetooth pairing, camera, Android configuration, iOS configuration
– Strap hole design for easy carrying
Here is my demo sample shot using the Bluetooth Shutter Remote, yes I know it’s boring. Now this remote only works with iPhone on board camera app, it’s doesn’t work with any other camera app. I’m hoping in the near future that app developer will make Bluetooth remotes work with their camera apps, like how smart styli work with drawing, paint and sketch apps. All it does when you try to use it with the remote is turn you volume up and down.
The Shutter Remote some in 4 colors Black, White, Blue and Pink. It sells for $24.95 which is a steal at that price. I love the fact it has a recharge battery, so I don’t have to replace a battery after leaving it one on accident. The charge lasts a long time before you have to recharge your remote. So if you plan to go on a long weekend photo taking trip, you remote will last you through the weekend and go beyond the heavy photo taking trip.

Next up is the Smartphone Instant Lens Swapping Clip for Smartphones/Tablets. When you want to use 2 different lens to take a picture, you normally have to detach / unscrew the first lens and replace a second lens. Sometimes it takes some time for lens swapping and the person(s) in front of you may become impatient while you are swapping your lens.
Now here it is on my iPhone and ready to attach a couple of lenses. One thing I want to tell you if you have the normal Fisheye and Wide Angle/Macro lens. You can attach two lens on this clip. However if you have larger lenses, like the 4x Telephoto or 2x Telephoto lens. You can only screw on one of those lenses because they take up lots of space and covers over the lens spot on the clip. If you’re looking for another alternative to an Olloclip or Cloth Clip lens set, this might be for you.
The only problem I have with the clip is it covers the screen. You can tilt the clip on the side to have better access to your iPhone screen. Show on the last photo at the end. It works well this way and can get to my photo apps a lot better/ The other reason why I like the clip are the price $6.95 and the clip stays on your iPhone without falling off. So you want to climb a tree and hang upside down, you can do that and not worry about the clip falling off your lens. So it’s made for the extreme mobile photographer in mind, who like to take mobile photos in a different type of perspective or point of view.
Now you’re wondering with the set up photos, where did I get that tripod and head mount ? It’s the Universal Mini Smart Camera Phone Holder with Collapsible Tripod.
If you’re starting out with mobile photography this is the way to go. You have what need to start off with. The price is nice at $7.15, so you’re noting making a huge investment on gear. When you want to invest in a better tripod. You can still use the tripod head on other tripods because it has a standard mount that screws on any tripod. I like the clip because it’s easy to use and I can pull off my iPhone out really easily. It’s small so you can put it on your pocket, backpack, camera bag or purse. This is one tripod set you can take anywhere with you. If you want to get the separately instead of a set, you can buy them that way too.
