"Cloud Mode" enables you to upload the photo taken by your DLSR camera directly to the cloud space and synchronize to your cloud album provided by Joopic App (including the desktop editions for mac OS and Windows). It also enables you to immediately update your photos to the shared cloud album. Your family and friends may instantly see the photos uploaded in real-time from miles away.

Long-range full control with live view

The long operating range (up to 100 feet) of Cambuddy Pro allows you to capture a close-up of the wildest creatures from a safe distance. You have a real-time view of the image and able to adjust the exposure time, aperture, ISO, exposure compensation, shooting delay and other parameters at any time from your smartphone. It also has an auto-focus features by tapping the image on the live-view screen or fine tune with manual-focus.

High-speed photography

CamBuddy Pro is equipped with four sensors - sound, lightning, laser, and radio, as well as a built-in radio transmitter. Combined, it unlocks many creative photography modes including sound/light/laser/radio activated shutter or flash, or use sound/light/laser/Joopic app to activate the built-in radio transmitter to set other cameras to go off. You can capture high-speed motion scenes and fleeting moments, creating amazing pictures with ease.

Sound-triggered shooting

Set the trigger to go off at a desired sound level. Capture the clinking of glasses or activate the camera by hand clapping.

Lightning-triggered shooting

Set the trigger to go off when lightning strikes. You can also synchronize multiple CamBuddy Pros with a flash to shoot an object from different angles simultaneously.

Laser-triggered shooting

Laser-triggered shooting mode can help you in high-speed photography like capturing wildlife in action. Make sure the laser beam is aimed to the Cambuddy Pro laser sensor in a stable position and when something blocking or breaking the laser, the camera shutter/flash will be triggered. A CamBuddy specific laser generator is included in the laser bundle.

Shoot-and-push

Photos taken are automatically pushed to your smartphone through the Shoot-and-Push function. You can also edit, manage, and share the pictures on social media.

One smartphone, 128 cameras

Connecting and controlling multiple cameras to shoot one object from different angles is a key and original innovation of CamBuddy Pro.

Simply, you can setup the cameras connected in synchronized mode, and every camera works under the same trigger function (e.g., sound trigger, lightning trigger or radio trigger). When there is a sound, lightning, or radio signal, all cameras will capture pictures at the same time from different angles. By using Joopic app, you only need to setup one CamBuddy Pro's work mode, others will follow up. Under synchronized mode, you can even setup every camera in the array has an equidifferent delay time.

CamBuddy Pro provides the ability to connect to up 128 cameras to capture stunning Matrix bullet-time footage, as demonstrated in the video.

When you are in a wedding ceremony, you may want to use two or more cameras to shoot bride and groom from different angels. For this situation, we can setup the cameras to work in master-slave mode. You can hold the master camera and capture the close range scene. Meanwhile, the slave cameras, which are fixed in other positions and controlled by CamBuddy Pros, can be triggered by a lightning from your external flash or a radio wave from a handheld radio transmitter.

This scenario can also be used to monitor your home or office. You can set the master CamBuddy Pro to work under laser trigger mode. When someone break the laser, the CamBuddy Pro can be triggered to send a radio wave, which then trigger other cameras to take a picture or start to record a video.
