Remotely control Canon EOS and PowerShot series cameras and effortlessly capture time-lapse videos in RAW, advanced selfies, real-estate, travel and group photos. (See a list of supported models at the end of this description.) Shutter comes with a full-featured Apple Watch app.


Shutter's timer allows you to specify an initial delay and intervals between photos. You can control waiting sound during the countdown, and photo capture sound when the self-timer triggers.

You can remotely control exposure settings. Included histogram ensures you don't clip highlights or lose shadow details.


With the help of intervalometer, you can get rid of a dedicated cable release. Capture RAW photos and use your regular RAW developer and video editor to put together incredible time-lapse movies.


With timer app you can finally include everyone in family and group photos. Set up timer and allow it to capture multiple frames at one run. Timer sounds will make sure everyone smiles at the exactly right moment.


Ever been to a perfect travel destination with no one around to take a picture of you? Strangers cutting off your limbs? With our intervalometer, you can capture those sunrises and sunsets in the most remote locations.

Shutter's optimized battery usage allows you to enjoy the day to the fullest.


Use exposure bracketing to easily capture multiple exposures of the same scene. Recover all shadow and highlight details in post-production.


By combining ("stacking") multiple photos with the same composition, you can drastically reduce camera noise in post-production. Use Shutter to catch multiple exposures of the night sky. This will allow you to produce stunningly clear images of the Milky Way and Northern Lights (aurora borealis).


No one better understands your Instagram business than yourself. Compose perfect shots and improve your Instagram engagements. With Shutter's timer you can take as many photos as you want without hubby's bored face. Your Canon camera will take care of the rest, giving you the sharpest and most flattering pictures!

Remote Shutter Trigger for Canon R5

I found this app while WISHING I could trigger the shutter of my canon camera from my Apple Watch, without having to purchase another gadget. This app does the trick and saved me from having to buy a hardware version. When everything is right it does the trick!!

Now, from my Apple Watch,I can see a live preview, adjust exposure settings, and trigger the shutter. It also has an Intervalometer.

I had a question, emailed the developer, and got a response within minutes. The app is new for canon cameras and shows a lot of promise. It sounds like we can expect more to come :)

WIFI SETUP: the developer says to connect phone directly to camera WiFi, not through another WiFi network, such as my usual home network. It works MUCH better with the direct connection. If you connect through indirect WiFi expect issues.

What Canon Connect should have been

I often prefer to use an iPad to the touchscreen on my EOS RP, especially to show other people what the camera is seeing, such as during the solar eclipse. I also wanted to use the intervalometer to record an image every minute, but that functionality is disabled on the camera while connected to wi-fi, and Connect does not have that feature. So I can view on an iPad, or use the intervalometer, but not both.

Shutter does have this functionality, as well as the standard shutter, aperture, etc controls.

Also, my model allows a bulb timer, but only for one shot. So I can take one image of 60 seconds, for instance, but the intervalometer function is then disabled. I can’t take a series of images longer than 30 seconds.

Shutter also resolves this, allowing me to take any number of long exposures.

Apple Watch Shutter Controls for Canon Camera

Connected my R6 Mark II to the app in about 5-10 minutes, and from there it’s set it and forget it. I love that I can control my R6 from my wrist with the camera across the room on a tripod (I do it for video but it works for photos and bracketed exposures in the same way) AND see a live preview right on my wrist.

The setup process took a few minutes, but although it takes a little trial and error, it is not tough.
