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 (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.


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. :)

Developer Response ,

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.

Mr. Kribopple ,

Great app overall, very minor qualms.

I use this app as a cam ranger alternative for interior and real estate photography. The ability to check the frame away from camera in real-time is extremely helpful and the main reason I use it, which is the compromise of using a bulky phone and 600w monolight in one hand and a fully loaded tripod in the other.

My only “wishes” would be to have the choice of selecting multiple/all previews that are saved so I can delete them all instead of selecting photos one by one. I have to delete the app and reinstall after every shoot. Not a big deal, but would be helpful if implemented.

My only other dream wish would be able to communicate to a flash transmitter attached to the hot shoe of the camera to control flash settings while away from camera.

I’d pay whatever you wanted for that feature, but I understand that’s not possible with today’s technology, at least not yet.

Overall, extremely useful for my purposes.

I appreciate the constant updates also.

It shows you care not only about your product, but the community who uses it, so I say thank you for that, because it matters to me.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your kind words. "Delete all photos" feature has just been released with version 2.27.

As for the flash transmitter, this is sadly not controlled by the camera. If your transmitter has Bluetooth and allows remote control, I'd love to learn more at

Please read the description info before eating!

Dear fellow Sony users, please do not rate this app one star just because you did not read what it was designed to do. It supports a great deal of Sony cameras, my a6500 included, but no, it will not connect to every single model Sony has ever sold. There is a list of cameras listed that you would do well to read before buying. If you bought it before reading, please check the list before commenting about how it doesn’t connect to your a9 or whatever. I use this app as a remote control and monitor, and it works great. The design is great, and I love that it has an Apple Watch app. My use case is simple, but it deserves five stars from me for how well it does what I need it to. The app developer(s) work hard at updating this app and providing support. Please make sure you are rating based on your experience and how it lived up to the performance the description promises, instead of uninformed expectations.
