Impulse is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super convenient I recently ordered the Joby Impulse online through their website. The delivery was on time as promised. The Packing was a little too big for the small device but the item worked smoothly without any problem. I was able to connect to my Samsung Galaxy J7 mobile Phone via bluetooth and was happily clicking photos. The concept is amazing and brilliant. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great companion to the little tripod We bought this with the little tripod that allows an I-Phone set up and a remote trigger. It was a Christmas gift for our daughter and she was delighted because she travels so much and uses it almost daily now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very handy device I bought 6 of the Impulse for each of my family members for Christmas. It was a hit! A really nice feature is not having to position your finger or thumb on the home button, chancing a drop of the phone. The Impulse also works very well when you put your phone on a stand. And, using the Impulse to control volume on your phone is a bonus feature. Thumbs up on this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I've had it for just a short time but on the occasions that I have used it the Impulse worked as advertised. I look forward to its continued use. Glad I got it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very useful Happy with it. U do need to pair it up again if you haven't taken pics for some time (haven't exactly measured how long the interval is). I thought it would be paired after you've done it the first time..but otherwise, really handy

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average features It is supposed to start and stop when in video mode but all it does is takes a picture during video mode and if pressed a 2nd time it switches to picture mode and ends video mode.

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)
