Easily control your camera

Camera Control Apps sp. z o.o.

    • $19.99


Remotely control Sony cameras and effortlessly capture time-lapse videos in RAW, advanced selfies, real-estate, travel and group photos.

Easily capture photos with Sony Alpha and Cyber-shot cameras (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.


With the recent Eye-AF update for 3rd generation cameras, our remote controller can always focus on the eye. You've never had selfies and group photos this sharp!


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 Sony camera will take care of the rest, giving you the sharpest and most flattering pictures!

Almost perfect.

I purchased this app to take burst shots of my toddler and I, in a beautiful setting outdoors.
I love that it allows you to take as many pictures as your card will allow, for as long as you want.
You can change everything you need to perfect your shot on your phone, which is amazing. And I love that you can take photos with your watch, so you don’t have to quickly hide your giant phone for group photos. I just detached the watch band and kept the watch face in my hand.
My only knock on the app is that I can’t use my watch for continuous shooting. This did result in me having to use my phone and awkwardly trying to hide it in some shots. Which isn’t a huge deal, but I only had a 100mb memory card on me so my first dozen pictures are of me placing my phone down, and picking up my child THEN trying to pose. Which by that time my camera started to slow down due to trying to process the string of rapid fire pictures.
I will continue to use this app. I just hope that in the near future there will be a development of continuous shots on the Apple Watch. :)

Thank you for this comment. So cool that you capture memories with your toddler using our app! 😍

Recently, we’ve received multiple requests for continuous shooting on the Watch. It’s definitely coming soon. Please email us at so you can get an early access as soon as it’s ready.

Updated review May 23, 2019

I’ve been working with the developer and some beta updates, which have been implemented.

The app is much more usable for me now. There is still some shutter delay (iPhone 12Pro Max) but that may be a general Bluetooth issue?

Overall definitely a very useful app.


Can I get a refund? Really all I want is to be able to trigger my a7RIV using my Apple Watch. I do own and use all the time the actual Sony Bluetooth remote. I was hoping to have this app as a back up, however... I need to have the camera in a bracket mode and I need to trigger the camera for each of the brackets manually, when I press the shutter. With this app when it’s in single shot mode it overrides what I have on the camera. And as I say I need to control when (fire the shutter) each of exposures is made. Soooo setting the app in bracket mode is no good for me as the app triggers the full bracket (3, 5, or 9). Also it seems, even if I could live with the app controlling the bracket, this can not be initiated from the watch, only via the app on a phone or iPad. Sooo I’ve owned the app about 10 minutes and I can see in its current version it is useless for me. I wish there was a better description of its function here on the App Store, it would have saved me the pretty high cost of this app. Disappointed.

Also, thank you for future feature suggestions - we'll try to do better in the future. If you want to, we will notify you about the progress (just email us). Kind regards, Grzegorz

Works Fine

This app works fine and the pairing process was easy. The only issues I experienced was the noticeable delay between taking the photo versus the time it actually registers to your camera.

The second challenge was disconnections—I was standing a few feet away from my camera and the app disconnected within a few minutes of purchasing it. I have to manually close and open the app to establish a connection.

My third problem is that during Shutter usage and after closing the app, I’m not able to send or receive texts. I’m a product photography who also uses airplay to send images to my TV—which I use as a backdrop. Whenever I have to use Shutter, it interferes with airplay even after I close the app. After using Shutter, I have to turn my phone off completely to allow my phone to receive messages and to use airplay, even though I have consistent Wi-Fi and cellular data. At this point, this works fine for in-studio shoots, but it’s not reliable enough to use at offsite shoots. I hope in time this app improves in its funactionality. 😊
