"This is awesome, off to order one." - Robert Scoble,

"TriggerHappy is brilliant! Remote tether for your dSLR to iPhone/Android! Bought mine. :)" - Don MacAskill, CEO of SmugMug, Inc.

"Canon people should go nuts because they don't really have a great interval timing solution. And it is an easier menu than the Nikon interval timer I already use with a few extra features." - Scott Jarvie, JarvieDigital
