Intervalometer for Canon - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

I had just bought a new DSLR and was surprised to find out that it wasn’t possible to connect an Intervalometer. Since I could trigger the camera from an app on my phone, I figured that it should be possible to develop a small app that would act as an Intervalometer. I didn’t have any prior developing experience, but was curious enough to learn and get started with the coding.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

The most challenging aspect was identifying the different Bluetooth commands that are needed to interact with the camera.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

The interviewee chose not to answer this question.

How long have you been working on this app?

It took me 1 month to develop the first release of the app, but since then many improvements have been added.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

For the Canon owners whose DSLRs don’t have the option to connect an Intervalometer, this app is the savior!

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

I developed this app as I couldn’t find any other app that provides this functionality.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

In the future I am planning to make this app available for even more camera models.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

The Intervalometer for Canon app allows you to shoot long-exposure time-lapse recordings by connecting to your camera via Bluetooth and triggering it at set intervals.

Longer Battery Time:
Bluetooth (BLE = Bluetooth Low Energy) requires up to 90% less energy than Wifi, hence your battery will last longer.

BULB mode
Set the exposure time on your camera or switch to BULB mode and control the exposure time directly from the app without any time limit.

Unlimited Number of Photos and Automatic Stop

Choose between infinite triggering or an automatic stop after a set number of photos.

Video Mode

The intervalometer also works in video mode and can be used to restart recordings. This might be useful for cameras that have a 30 minute video recording limit.

Alarm on Interruption and Automatic Reconnect

Sounds an alarm when the camera disconnects from the phone while shooting is in progress and automatically attempts to reconnect the app to the camera in order to continue shooting.

Continue in Background

Triggering continues even when the app is minimised in the background.
