Today we’re trying out the new MaxStone that was successfully funded recently on Kickstarter. It’s essentially a remote for cameras but with the twist of being controllable from an Android or iOS device.
When we backed this thing I don’t believe there was an Android app so well done them for releasing it just before sending out the units. And it’s not a half-assed job like they usually are. The app is pretty straight forward with all the feature you’re looking for.
For me the timelapse function is a winner. The app will tell the MaxStone remote to take a photo at any interval at a minimum of 1 per second.
The device itself is very solid and coated with fake rubber to give it a luxurious feel. Just dangling it in front of the camera IR sensor is all that’s needed to set up.
No news yet what they’ll retail at, but they were $35 on Kickstarter so you can assume they’ll be roughly that price.
