these days, iPhone apps and accompanying hardware to do specialized tasks seem rather overwhelming. just few days ago, we posted about iGrill and now we found something that will interest shutterbugs: the blueSLR remote shutter. working in tandem with an app, the blueSLR lets user control the camera’s setting such as focus, shutter speed or timer with an iOS device. wirelessly, of course.

the blueSLR is particularly useful for taking self-portrait and group photo when there’s no one around to assist in the photo-taking. the accompanying hardware is a Bluetooth receiver unit that plugs into the GPS port of most Nikon cameras. the blueSLR also feature geotagging of photos taken, though the main highlight would have taken the limelight away from it. the app is free and is available on the appstore, while the hardware will set you back at $149.
