PhotoIRmote – New Android Photography App

PhotolRmote allows you to control your DSLR camera using your android device. PhotoIRmote is the first DSLR Timer Remote Controller for android devices. It allows you to shoot your camera using the InfraRed sensor of your camera and an IRmitter (IR emitter) connected to your phone.

It includes Self-timer, Long exposure, Interval-timer and Count-exposures. You can also combine these modes. For instance, you can program PhotoIRmote to wait 5min, release the shutter, then take a total of 25 exposures at 2min intervals

This app retails for $3.99/£2.50 and you can pick it up here.

* If your camera is not in the list above but it’s a Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony or Olympus and it has a built-in IR sensor, it will work!!



– This app requires an IRmitter to control the camera. Visit the developers website to follow DIY instructions to build your own.
– PhotoIRmote works with any smartphone running android (2.1 or higher). BUT some devices (as Samsung Galaxy S or HTC Desire HD) may not drive enough output level to fire the camera using a REGULAR IRmitter.
HOWEVER, if you use an active IRmitter (DIY) or any preAMP (which amplifies the signal) it will work OK!!


Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website—— TheAppWhisperer platform has been a pivotal cyberspace for mobile artists of all abilities to learn about, to explore, to celebrate and to share mobile artworks. Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built. In her words, “We all have the potential to remove ourselves from the centre of any circle and to expand a sphere of compassion outward; to include everyone interested in mobile art, ensuring every artist is within reach”, she has said. Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus. She has presented lectures bolstering mobile artists and their art from as far away as the Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea to closer to her home in the UK at Focus on Imaging. Her experience as a jurist for mobile art competitions includes: Portugal, Canada, US, S Korea, UK and Italy. And her travels pioneering the breadth of mobile art includes key events in: Frankfurt, Naples, Amalfi Coast, Paris, Brazil, London. Pioneering the world’s first mobile art online gallery - has extended her reach even further, shipping from London, UK to clients in the US, Europe and The Far East to a global group of collectors looking for exclusive art to hang in their homes and offices. The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art. Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine. Her own freelance photographic journalistic work is also widely acclaimed. She has been published extensively both within the UK and the US in national and international titles. These include The Times, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Popular Photography & Imaging, dpreview, NikonPro, Which? and more recently with the BBC as a Contributor, Columnist at Vogue Italia and Contributing Editor at LensCulture. Her professional photography has also been widely exhibited throughout Europe, including Italy, Portugal and the UK. She is currently writing several books, all related to mobile art and is always open to requests for new commissions for either writing or photography projects or a combination of both.
