Q & A

Will this work with my Samsung Galaxy tablet?

Asked by: dawn
Yes it will. It works off of the volume button app. If that's turned off then no.

Is this for triggering photos only, or does it also work to trigger video on and off?

Asked by: eddiet310
I bought one yesterday and it does both. If it is in video mode when you push the button it will start & stop video recording.

(Sorry, posted this as a comment. Should have posted as a question, so I repost here.) I cannot make this trigger work with video android phone (Samsung S6). How to configure it to work as a video trigger?

Asked by: Babel

Pairing worked and turn off worked. But, it doesn't connect when button pushed (red light is on and let go) unless each time go to bluetooth setting and manually select 'Joby Shutter'. Is this feature or defect? (iPhone 7 plus user)
