Cascable, a small Swedish company working on tools for the modern photographer, released an update to their iOS photography app Cascable that introduces Shutter Robot Recipes — a photography automation tool available on mobile platforms.
Introducing Shutter Robot Recipes! Recipes are an extension to our Shutter Robot feature that allow you to automate your camera in exactly the way you want. Using the Recipes Editor, you assemble a series of camera setting adjustments and shutter triggers together in whichever way you’d like. Once you’ve constructed the perfect recipe, Cascable’s Shutter Robot can run it against any camera that supports the features the recipe uses.
Shutter Robot Recipes works with all of Cascable’s supported cameras and allow complete freedom and creativity when building time-lapse, exposure bracket sequence, or any other series of shots you can think of. You can find out more about the Recipes feature at cascable.se/ios/recipes.
Keep in mind that it does NOT support Fujifilm RAW files, only JPEG. I have asked Cascable about it and they told me:
“Unfortunately, Fujifilm cameras won’t allow access to RAW images over WiFi. If you have your camera set to RAW or RAW+JPEG before connecting, RAW images will be created but you won’t be able to see them through Cascable. We plan to add support for the X-T2’s improved wireless tethering mode later in the year, which should allow access to RAW images for that camera.”
All in all it looks like a lovely app, and definitely something Fujifilm should take as a reference for their own Camera Remote App, which could really need a redesign and improvement.
