What’s New

Version 6.2

Thank you for using Cascable! This update vastly expands our Sony support, adding support for a large number of new models and adding USB remote control for most existing ones. It also adds support for the OM-1, and contains a number of other improvements and fixes. Full release notes below.

==== Greatly Expanded Support for Sony Cameras ====

This update hugely expands our compatibility with Sony cameras, both by adding USB support for cameras cameras we already supported, and by adding WiFi and USB support for a large number of previously unsupported cameras.

As of version 6.2, Cascable is the most flexible tool on the market for working with your Sony camera — it supports the Smart Remote Control, Ctrl w/Smartphone, PC Remote (WiFi), and PC Remote (USB) connection methods on most Sony cameras on the market.

==== Other Camera Compatibility ====

- Added support for the OM System OM-1.

- Added support for the Nikon Z9.

==== Other Changes ====

- The “Change Exposure Setting” block in Recipes will attempt to wait until the new value is reflected by the camera before moving on. This should do nothing but make Recipes with setting changes more reliable, but if you have Recipes with very tight timings you should double-check them for correct behaviour after this update.

- The app’s settings UI has been revamped with a more modern look and feel.

==== Bug Fixes ====

- Fixed some broken layout issues in the Recipes editor.

Problems with Intervalometer Interval SOLVED

Update: The developers quickly responded to me and explained that the bulb timer mode is what works for what I was going for. Awesome customer service and great app, now that it works for astro I’m stoked!

Original: Awesome app, way better than other camera control apps. However, I bought the pro version so that I could use the intervalometer for astrophotography, and it doesn’t work how it should. After going to the robot mode and selecting intervalometer, it lets you set a time interval to wait between the set number of exposures (or time, depending on your settings) that you’re taking them. I have found that the only thing that this interval does is wait that amount of time before taking the first picture, and the the other pictures all take back-to-back with no pause to let the sensor cool. Fix this and it would be about perfect!

Developer Response ,

That setting is the time between the beginning of each shot (since in many auto modes, Cascable has no idea what the shutter speed will be). For long exposures (like at night), you'll need to take into account the shutter speed as well — or, use the bulb timer.

Still using it 1 year later

Using Cascable for real estate photography and occasional portrait shoot. Works smoothly with workflow. Wish I knew what WiFi extender could help speed up transfers (currently 4-8 seconds on Nikon D5300. Also I wish there was bracketing feature. Sometimes the image fails to show in preview. Sometimes focus doesn’t work and have to reset. This could be unrelated, could be a power issue with camera.
UPDATE: I just went through the recipes tutorial. This type of complex repetitive programming is just what I was hoping for. Could be a game changer. It seems bracketing IS available and much more I just never knew it! Only thing I would fix is the scrolling, I often scroll up/down 2 or 3 stops quickly and go way past the setting I want. Reminds me of Wheel of Fortune. I think they used to have a way to quick scroll by keeping finger on the screen.

Nice concept, not so good execution

I love the concept of this app, but it has several main flaws.

1. It freezes a lot. When connecting to my Fujifilm X-E2. It sometimes works in the beginning, after a while, it freezes, and I have to shut down the app and my camera and reconnect.

2. Shutter and aperture adjustment in the app has a major problem, almost every time I adjust shutter and aperture in Cascable, it first works ok, EV on live view changes, then it just stop working, in my case no matter how I adjust shutter value in Cascable, it jumps back to 25sec, similar situation when I adjust aperture value, and EV won’t change anymore. I’ve tried to set aperture value to ‘auto’, shutter value to ‘auto’ or ‘bulb’ on my Fujifilm X-E2, but still all the same.

3. Geotagging in China might have a problem. Chinese government asks map providers to “shift” locations on every map in China for a certain distance (because of national security reason blah blah blah), after geotagging with Cascable, locations where I actually take pictures is a distance away from those on the map in Cascable. I believe the location info is correctly geotagged onto the photos, it’s just shown incorrectly on the map in Cascable due to that Chinese government problem. There’s an app ‘Fog of World’ and it had the same problem before, then the developer solved it, maybe Cascable developer can write FoG a letter.
