If you could rig that to trigger with you bow shot the possibilities would be endless. That is a cool add on.

That's cool, hope it works better than the GoPro app, the wifi is iffy and eats power.

Shane have you received yours yet? I also pledged the $74. They were supposed to ship last month. I'm a bit confused though, it looks like you might have to pay more $$ to get it?

I'd be interested in an update once y'all receive your units, looks like a really neat product and I'd get a lot of use out of it!

They've sent a couple of updates. A couple of design changes pushed it back to June. Still waiting....

I've been getting updates, done my survey, etc. just wondering if anyone had gotten theirs yet.

Not that I know of. Haven't gotten an update since the survey deal, other than a couple of comments on the threads on their website. Last word said they'd be flying to China the last 2 weeks of May for production and would have product to deliver in June.

Estimated delivery for orders put in today is October 2016. Sometimes when these Kickstarter things blow up the developer has a difficult time managing such a large volume of orders. I've been waiting almost 2 years for some Kickstarter special copy of the Bible.

Shane and Mike, please share your review after you receive the Pulse. I'd love to know if I need one of these.

It allows you to control everything on your camera through your smartphone.

Got mine this morning. Have it charging now. It's smaller than I expected, which is a good thing. I was expecting it to be more the size and weight of my wireless flash triggers. It's much smaller and lighter though. It will be this evening before I get a chance to play with it. Got the app installed on my phone.

Plugged in the Pulse, opened the app, set exposure settings via the app on my phone, hit the red button and took photos. Switched camera to video mode, hit the button on the app and took video. Haven't tried the intervalometer yet, but so far everything is super simple and works great. Haven't tested the range between phone and Pulse/camera yet to see how far away it will work.

I saw it on the link Shane posted. The company has now changed the date to "Pulse ships on November 2nd."

I've already found a potential issue with mine. When I turn on the thumbnail option, which I assume would show a preview of the shot just taken, mine doesn't work.

Everything else works flawlessly.

Any updates from those of you using Pulse?


Came across another tool today I thought looked interesting. Claims to not only allow control from your phone, but automatically adjusts settings to take better pics.

What function(s) do you like, Casey? I haven't used mine at all yet, mostly because I just haven't had my big camera out much lately. I'm planning to take it with me to Utah on a pack-in elk hunt in August. I want to set it up to take a timelapse or two while I'm there. I need to get it out and practice with it before then.

Received my Pulse in the mail today. Spent about 20 minutes unsuccessfully attempting to connect to my 80D and iPhone. Giving up to put the kiddos to bed. Any tips Shane and/or Casey? Followed the manual, deleted and reloaded the app. Turned everything off and back on. App says no device found. Not a good start.

It can take a little while to connect. You are plugged into camera with the usb cord, correct?

Yes - I tinkered with it for another 30 minutes or so yesterday with no luck. Waiting to hear back from Alpine Labs support.

Doesn't the 80D have internal wifi? Maybe that is somehow interfering.

Possibly.....Finally heard back from tech support. Tried their suggestions with no luck. Waiting to hear back again.

I downloaded LightBlue app to see low signal Bluetooth devices. If I turn the Pulse on by itself, with the camera off, it shows up on my iPhone. As soon as I switch on the camera, Pulse disappears from the Bluetooth list. Strange.

Another thought, do you have the EOS Remote app installed? if so might it be interfering. Just throwing it out there.
