Helicon Remote is an application that enables users to easily take pictures without having to press the camera button. Users can control their Nikon or Canon DSLR cameras from a remote location. This application can also be used for time lapse photography, exposure bracketing for creating HDR images, and depth of field bracketing for achieving greater focus in images. Additionally, this application can be used for controlling Trinamic stepper motors, as well as Stackshot macro rails. These devices are commonly used for depth of field bracketing in micro, extreme macro, and macrophotography.
Helicon Remote’s features include the following:
• Remote capture – users can capture and view JPEG or RAW images from a remote location to avoid camera shakes caused when pressing the shutter button. This is useful when doing close-up photography.
• Focus bracketing – users take multiple shots (with different focal distance settings) and the application will do the rest.
• Exposure bracketing – this feature enables users to create photos with and extended depth of field and HDR. This feature is also used for time lapse photography, allowing users to do long exposures for up to 32 minutes.
Helicon Remote does not only ease in different kinds of photography techniques but also take commands in changing the user’s camera settings such as shutter speed, aperture, ISO, flash mode, and other camera settings.
