EOS-R support?

I'm not seeing the Canon EOS-R in the list of camera options in the app. Will you be adding that soon?

Great App but a little confusing to figure out at first

There’s a ton of features packed in, but it’s a little confusing for a first time user.

For example:

The Time Lapse function is what you want to use for most intervalometer functions.

The Timer function (not to be confused with the ‘timer’ sub selection under the Shutter Release function) is a scheduler based on military time - it’s not a countdown, it’s more like an intervalometer that you can schedule - much like you would an alarm.

The timer sub-selection under Shutter Release function is a conventional countdown that triggers the shutter.

Complexity aside, the app is what sold me on the Pluto trigger. I downloaded it before purchasing the unit to check it out. This interface is what a remote trigger should be in this day and age. This product is best in class for sure.

Quite good remote trigger

I have found the Pluto trigger to be very helpful in taking photographs that require a remote trigger whether it’s time lapse or just a bulb photo. One thing that would make a tremendous improvement for me would be if it could be initiated with an Apple Watch. The instructions could be more clear and detailed but if you spend some time with it and experiment you can figure most of it out.
