Spark is the most versatile camera remote on the market. With three different modes of control, Spark was built to adapt to whatever situation you are shooting in. Whether you're taking a fun group photo, capturing a long exposure of the stars, or settling down and setting up a time lapse, Spark gives you instant control. With your phone or without it.

-Wirelessly control your camera's shutter from up to 100' away

Hi Cy. Thanks for the feedback! We did release a bulb ramping feature with a firmware update. If you connect Spark to the app and go to the about page you can prompt the update. You will then have advanced settings for timelapses in the top right corner. We weren't able to add a live view option with Spark's Bluetooth connection. Fair feedback though. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

Can’t connect to my phone at all

I’m tired of problem solving game. I backed the project when it launched on kickstarter. It was a great solution to my 5d mkiii and I backed the project as soon as I saw it. I was excited when I finally got my spark. It didn’t work great and always needed some fidgeting but it works ok. Now few years later, the battery is dead and I replaced it but It didn’t work. So, I bought a different battery brand, I can see lights but can never connect to the spark app. I would be ok with the app not working if i can still use it as an IR remote for my camera. NO. I only work when it likes which is when it first connect and disconnect to my camera.

Needs to be better

I love Alpine Labs. I think my Radian is awesome, and I jumped right on the Spark when I was prepping for a trip. And, as a wired or infrared remote, it’s great, although the shutter button is a bit squirrelly at times.

But the phone app is frustrating, and it flat out doesn’t work with my Sony A7RII. The time lapse feature acts like it’s working, but the shutter never activates. Even the single frame option doesn’t work—the phone just vibrates without doing anything. There’s no troubleshooting on their website, so there’s little I can do to see what might be wrong.

I get that Sony’s stuff is harder to work with than Canon or Nikon, but if you can’t make it work, then you shouldn’t sell the product for that market until it does, flawlessly.

I’ve updated firmware on the device, and maybe some day an update will fix the problems, but more likely, the Spark will end up in a drawer, forgotten.

As I said, I love what these guys are trying to do, and I’ll keep working with my Radian.

Hi Joey. Thanks for sharing your experience with Spark and Alpine Labs so far. This actually sounds like you may have a defective unit. If you've completed the firmware update and Spark is still having trouble triggering the camera, then the unit is not functioning properly. This isn't caused by your camera type as Spark is most popular among Sony users. Please send us an email so that we can arrange a replacement! Look forward to working through this with you.
