    "Your world will completely change when you install a remote control on your phone for your camera. The on-brand canon app often leaves a lot to be desired, but I haven't had any major bugs with this version so far. I love how I can access pretty much every feature."

    "Pretty impressive app that delivers what it promises. Connects and functions properly with your camera, takes about 2 minutes to setup at the most. Only downside here is that sometimes the app will just completely fail to control the camera."

    "When my cousins came over to spend the week, I needed a way of remotely using my camera that I'd placed in the bathroom. I verified that Helicon would work with my Canon 80D, and it was on the correct list. However, all my shots were just super misted up, and the time between when I hit the snap button and the picture seemed measurable. Still, it did take pictures remotely."
