Berlin, Germany: Foolography launches Unleashed ‘22, a Bluetooth device that delivers control over your camera at the palm of your hands.
Foolography launched Unleashed ’22 on Kickstarter, an upgraded version of their previous model, Unleashed ’18, that crowdfunded successfully in 2016.
Unleashed ‘22 is a tiny camera accessory. So tiny it is, you can easily enclose it in your palms. But, tiny as it is, Foolography promises that it comes packed with numerous features. For example, it has long exposure capabilities of up to 4.5 hours, geotagging ability, and expert-level time-lapse features.
This is a Bluetooth device that connects automatically to your smartphone when you turn your camera on. It uses Low Bluetooth Energy for faster pairing. That means it can pair to the necessary device in less than 10 seconds. Reconnecting is also instant.
Once connected, you can control just about anything from the Unleashed app. The app also allows you to sit back and relax while doing all the magic for your shots.
While it uses your camera’s battery, it is also energy efficient. This way, you never have to worry about it using up your camera’s battery and running out of charge while out shooting.
As for other control features, Unleashed ‘22 allows:
- Remote triggering — great for tripod shots
- Video recording from one or multiple cameras
- Changing shot settings from the app without touching the camera
- Gallery with high photo resolution review
- Sharing of photo right from the app
Unleashed ‘22 is a versatile gadget that connects to about 144 camera models so far. You can use it on your mirrorless and DSLRs cameras from renowned brands like Nikon, Canon, Sony, Fujifilm, and Panasonic. You can look up all the compatible cameras here to ensure that Unleashed ‘22 is compatible with your camera.
Are you hoping to back the crowdfunding campaign? It is currently running on Kickstarter with preorders going for €149, a 40% discount off the RRP of €249. And, if you do not mind waiting, delivery for Unleashed ‘22 is set for December 2022.
