[MUSIC] If you have a DSLR camera, you know it can take some pretty amazing photos.

It's compatible with both Canon and Nikon cameras. It cost $25 for this dongle. You connect one end to your iOS or Android device and the other to your DSLR camera.

First, you need to make sure that your camera settings are appropriate for the shot you're trying to accomplish. Let's say you wanna take some cool action shots. You can use the time lapse feature to accomplish that. It's not something your camera can't do on it's own, but it's a lot easier here. Open Time-lapse. Select the amount of time between each shot. Click OK and press the big red button, and it starts. [MUSIC] [MUSIC] Photos will be taken until you stop it. One of my favorite features is Sound Sensor, which uses your mobile device's microphone to initiate a shot from your camera. Basically, you turn it on, and if there's a loud enough sound, like this clap, You get the shot immediately. This is an excellent way to get yourself in pictures without having to worry about a timer. You can even customize it to delay the shot by a few seconds, to make sure you strike the perfect pose. These are just a few of the options available on Triggertrap. There are plenty more.
