Sony Releases Touchless Shutter App

Sony has released a new app called Touchless Shutter that lets you trigger cameras without touching them.

The Touchless Shutter app (free download, still in beta) uses the viewfinder’s eye sensor to detect the passing of your hand, and trigger the shutter. With Sony A7S or A7II, you can also control bulb shooting: one wave to open the shutter, and a second to close.

This latest PlayMemories Camera App is currently in beta and is available for a number of Sony mirrorless and compact cameras, including the NEX-5R, NEX-6, HX400V, HX60V, RX100 III, and more.

Sony Touchless Shutter App Takes A Photo Without Touching The Camera

From Sony :

With this application, you can simply hold your hand over the eye sensor to release the shutter.
Now you can operate the shutter without touching the camera, thus eliminating camera shake once and for all. When bulb-shooting, hold your hand over the eye sensor twice to start and end the exposure.
