IR Transmitter


Remote Triggering of cameras requires a compatible camera*, a remote IR Transmitter and SetMyCamPro. The IR Transmitter is a specially configured device connecting to iOS devices through the stereo output port. These can be purchased as ready to use adapters or they can be assembled from easily obtained components with directions on the DIY Page.

SetMyCamera offers pre-assembled and tested IR Transmitters. A sample IR transmitter is show below. These enable a one way communications between the iOS device and supported cameras for remote camera triggering. The IR transmitter plugs into the headphone connector and requires SetMyCamPro for remote trigger activation.

Consult camera owners manual for use of IR remote triggering, MLU, bracketing and bulb mode settings. Use of the IR protocol is a one way communication limited to the triggering of a supported camera. SetMyCamPro and the IR Protocol are not able to remotely configure a camera. It is the photographers responsibility to properly configure the camera by methods outlined in the camera’s user manual.
