If you own the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX90 digital camera, the good news is that your camera has gotten a new use in the form of a remote control feature. Before you worry about having to pay extra for some gadget or accessory that will provide the function, fret not as it is free of charge and comes in the form of a smartphone app dubbed the “Panasonic Lumix Remote”. Compatible with Android devices running on Android 2.2 to Android 4.0, and iOS devices on iOS 4.3 to iOS 5.1, the app (in case the name did not already give it away) will provide users with the option of triggering its shutter button remotely.
This app takes advantage of the camera’s WiFi capability and will also be able to view the camera’s “Live View” screen on their smartphone’s display. The app will also allow the user to zoom in on shots as well. Since we don’t own the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX90, we can’t really speak for the usefulness of the app, but assuming it does what Panasonic advertises, we’re sure that it should prove to be quite handy. Head on over to Google Play or to the iTunes App Store for the download.
