The WiFi Remote Capture app gives you the capability to take photos and videos simultaneously with multiple cameras. The app uses a local WiFi network to transmit capture commands to all the cameras that are connected to the local network. You can use this app for 3D stereo photography, multi-camera angle video shoots, multi-camera VR panoramic image capture.
The app works with two types of cameras:
1. Samsung NX500/NX1 Cameras
These cameras have to be modified with NXKS2 firmware that runs a broadcast receiver server. The app will send camera focus/shutter and video record/pause/stop commands using broadcast message commands over a connected local WiFi network. See https://github.com/ajavamind/NX500Capture for information about the camera firmware updates and setup you need to control your NX camera from this app.
2. Open Camera Remote App
The Open Camera Remote app listens for broadcast message commands when connected to a local WiFi network. The camera app can be found at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.sourceforge.opencameraremote
At a social gathering, party, photo shoot, or other group event all the participants need to use the Open Camera Remote app to take photos or videos and all participants have to connect to the same local WiFi network. With the WiFi Remote Capture app you can then trigger all the participants cameras simultaneously to take pictures at the same instant.
