Combo Apps/TLR Camera and Film Roll Bluetooth Shutter Remote with App List for iOS

My Gizmon Bluetooth Shutter Remote

These are my Bluetooth Shutter Remotes I got from Gizmon, TLR Camera and Film Roll. The main focus of this blog post are about pairing the remotes with your iOS device and a compiled camera app list. I wanted to test what camera apps will work with these remotes because most bloggers don’t put out a compiled list of what apps will work with any type of shutter remote on the market. Which is something they should be doing this because no one likes to fly blind. I don’t know about you but I’d like to know if these remotes will work with my favorite camera apps.

What comes in the box !!!

This is what comes in the box for each of the Bluetooth shutter remotes.

The golden rule before using any device with a rechargeable battery of any kind. It’s really important that you charge up these Bluetooth remotes first before you pair them to your iOS or Android mobile devices. If you don’t do this first, the remote will not pair well with your mobile devices. It was a little difficult to pair the remotes up with my iPhone because it takes a little patience to pair them up. When you it does pair right you will see a K SEFLIE connection successful/unsuccessful pop up on the screen. You will see connected when the connection is successful. The only con with these remotes is if you don’t use them for a long time. You will have to repair you remote to make them work again. This is why video and time-lapse apps don’t work well with a Bluetooth remote. But the real advantage for mobile photographers is you’re not limited with a cable and no tangle mess. It works 30 feet or 10 meters away from your mobile device.

Compiled List from Gizmon – this is a list of camera apps that came with the instructions.

iMovie – $4.99
Camera+ – $2.99
Afterlight – $.99 with in-app purchases
Hipstamatic – $1.99 with in-app purchases
Snapseed – FREE
ProCam 3 – $3.99 with in app purchases
B612 – FREE
Slow Shutter Cam – $.99
MeituPic – FREE

My Compiled App List – these are apps I tested with the Bluetooth shutter remote.

ProCamera 8 – $4.99
ProShot – $2.99
Hueless – $1.99
Huemore – $1.99
MPro – $1.99
MCPro – $1.99
NightCap Pro -$1.99
NightCap – $.99
LightBoxr – $1.99
Thirty Six – $1.99
Provoke – $1.99
Hydra – $4.99
FastCamera – $3.99
Hyperlapse – FREE
TopCamera 2 – $4.99
ZitrrCamera – FREE
PowerCam 7 – $1.99
PowerCam – $3.99

If you don’t see 645 PRO and PureShot on the list, it’s because the remote doesn’t work with those apps. Other apps that will not work with the Bluetooth remote are most HDR apps, most time-lapse apps and most video apps. However, the list up above will work with those camera apps. I’m sure there are more camera apps out there that you can add to this list.

The rule of thumbs for iOS is if a camera app has a volume shutter programmed (iOS 5.1) into their apps. Then it likely that a Bluetooth shutter remote will pair up with each other. This remote works with Android devices. The reason why I don’t have an app list for Android is because I don’t have an Android device to work with in making a compiled list. One day I might get an Android device so I can make a list for Android users. The rule of thumb for Android is the device has to have Jelly Bean 4.2.2 or newer.

If you have any questions about this blog post please leave comments or email me I wanted to thank Gizmon for sending me these Bluetooth remotes for review. Have a great day and see you soon !!!

    Hello Tina (ashcroft54).

    Thanks for the review. It’s funny that you found that they didn’t work with 645 PRO and PureShot. They work for me with these camera apps – they are my main camera apps, and I use the TLR bluetooth wireless shutter with them almost everyday. I don’t know what is going on in your case?? I’ll ask the obvious question – the “hardware shutter” option in the menu system needs to be switched to “on” in both of them.

      You’ll have to show me because I can’t seem to get it to work at all.

        I was out this morning and tested the remote with 645PRO and PureShot again – same result – works perfectly as a remote shutter release for both of them

        The setting in PureShot is in … Menu / Shutter release / Hardware shutter release

        I paired the remote in the beginning in the same way as you show above (i.e., as K Selfie).

        I find that it pairs with my iPhone 6 when I hold down the black button on the side, but then drops out after a few seconds. When I pair it a second time by holding the black button down again, it stays paired properly.

        I don’t know how else I can help from way over here in Australia! Any other ideas?

        Hi there Tina (ashcroft54).

        I was really pleased to read that you have got the remote working with these apps (645 PRO and PureShot).

        You could add AvgNiteCam to the list of apps for which the remote shutter will work.

        Sadly, I have found that Average Camera Pro dosen’t support hardware shutter functionality of any sort.
