Triggertrap review: use your smartphone to control your camera

Manufacturers are now starting to make wi-fi technology available to DSLR users either via an optional dongle or in the case of the Canon EOS 6D, a built-in unit.

One of the main advantages this brings is the ability to control the camera remotely via a smartphone, and with the camera’s live view enabled the scene can be seen on the phone screen.

This is extremely useful for wildlife photographers who need to be able to trip the shutter from a distance.
