The Open Camera Remote app is a modified version of Open Camera. It gives you focus and shutter trigger control remotely over a local WiFi network. You send this app broadcast control messages to operate focus and shutter release using another app, WiFi Remote Capture, install at
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.andymodla.remotecapture&hl=en

You trigger and capture photos and videos nearly simultaneously on local network connected phones running this app. Depending on your local network, the number of phones can range from 253 to 4093 maximum.

For security reasons some WiFi routers will block broadcast messages. You may have to set up your own private router that allows broadcast messaging.

There is a built-in Web HTTP server you can enable for downloading your photos with a Web browser. It only works with your local network while the camera app is running. In Settings there is a option to turn on the HTTP server and to show the URL of the server as a QR code or text.

Information about using the Open Camera app can be found at : 
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.sourceforge.opencamera&hl=en

The Open Camera Remote app has Settings under More Camera Controls for photo and video filename suffix and Time/Number format for filename with reset. The suffix string appended to the filename helps you determine from which phone camera a photo was shot. This allows you to merge all the photos from multiple cameras into a single folder for editing.

You can capture 3D images by taking sequential left and right eye photos when choosing a Settings option. The filenames will automatically add suffixes _l and _r. View 3D photos by purchasing https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.andymodla.apps.vrstereophotoviewer&hl=en (not supported by all phones). This app can be launched from preview thumbnail button if you select the 3D/VR Stereo Photo Viewer.

Another feature lets you align the scene you are shooting with your previous photo to help with taking 3D (left/right), composite, or stitched photos when you edit using other apps.

The open source code for Open Camera Remote (modified from version 1.46 Open Camera) is available at

    It is called "Open Camera Remote" but you cannot remotely view and control another camera with it. If you read someone else's critical review of this app you will see a link from the developer telling you to read a Blog whose instructions should have been linked directly from the overview description of this app but they are not. It doesn't matter since those instructions make absolutely no sense and I am a professional computer technician that can also diagnose and fix my own car.

  2. Dedi Suhaidi-avatar

    All Open Camera + Remote... but why I can't save to sdcard? -- I've tried using Storage Access Framework before but sometimes I can't save to sdcard.. after some trial I've found that if I delete the last picture on saved folder at sdcard, it also delete the folder so when I try to take another picture it failed to save because the folder doesn't exist anymore.

    How can I connect my wifi action camera to use with this app ?not in installing. I have an action camera with wifi. Now how can I connect this app through wifi so that I can access its camera on my device.?

    Great app, Can I use web API to trigger the shutter instead of network broadcast?

  5. Online Voice-avatar

    This is not a remote, it is just a camera app. There is no instruction on how to use it.

    Lifesaver when you need to make a scanner out of a couple of phones (to scan books, for instance), since you don't have to touch the device that takes pictures, thus not interfering with focus and image consistency.

  18. Justin Mathew-avatar

    First of all this is a super app with lot of settings. I particularly like locking the exposure. But there is one issue, if you can solve. I am using LeEco Le2 and while recording a video there is no pause option. If you can add it, that would be great. I think this is with this particular model. Or if there is some work around you can suggest. Best of luck. I liked the app.

    The app is great but video settings like frame rate not functioning!

    This is a very useful app. I just tried with 10 smartphones and it worked. Is there any option to define a single network location save the photos from all phones? As the photos taken are saved locally on the smartphone. Would like to have this feature if possible.

  28. loop tech-avatar

    Disapointment, cant see preview on remote capture. Useless for me.

  29. Dave Crewe-avatar

    Trying to get this to work on four phones, but it only works on three of them. I cannot get it to work on the Pixel XL for some reason. Would give 5 stars if it did, it works superbly on the other phones

  30. Prashant Gaur-avatar

    Its just a basic camera app. It cannot be used to control the phone camera remotely.. not a single option in the settings menu for that purpose.

  31. Anika Anthony-avatar

    hated it because whenever I use it my phone gets switched of and when I open it my battery from 59% it becomes 7%
