Steps

  1. 1
    To start off, we need to take our iPhone and put it off to the side
    .
    Then get into the remote shutter box.

    Open the remote shutter box
    .
    This is Bluetooth remote camera shutter. It also works with as a video camera shutter, it works for the iPhone 6, and Android devices. We will have a video for you on that later as well - if you are an Android user and just checking out the iPhone.

    Here we have a wonderful little instruction manual
    .
    It basically says push this button, push that button and here is the battery. There is really not a whole lot to it so let us put this off to the side.

    Let us take out the key fob and there is our battery
    .
    Nice thing about the battery is that it doesn't come already inserted; that means that there wasn't another heavy case sitting on top of this and pushing on it the entire time it was being shipped from China to wherever you may be.

    There is a camera button at the top when the key fob is sitting upright; there is a stop button at the bottom
    .
    Below the two buttons is a small square piece.

    Move it over to the back side

    There we go, it opens up; now we take the battery which I am holding in my hand
    .
    The batteries have two sides, one side is dimpled.

    Next, take the battery cover and then slide it up nice and easy
    .
    Once it gets to the insertion point here, push down with your finger to make sure that everything is attached and give it a push. This tile you actually have to push down. You may have to apply some thumb or finger pressure at the end as well while you're pushing to make sure it doesn't slide around.

    Now, let me show you how this works
    .
    First off, you can take a front facing picture by simply putting your phone into the tripod. Then you pull the metal piece up like I showed you and you just allow the little rubber piece to rest on the phone so that you don't damage your phone.

    This is how you set up and take photos with a remote Bluetooth device on your iPhone 6 and set up the old camera tripod to work as well
    .
    Word of caution, this camera tripod - notice how the legs are pretty much sitting on the same plane? That is bad news, do not do that. Spread the legs out so that they make a pyramid shape and the legs are farther apart.

    It is better if you turn the phone a bit so that it is at an angle and will not flop over easily
    .
    Notice how I am shaking it around, if I bump into this, the phone will not go anywhere. That is important, that is a good thing, you do not want your phone to fall down and break.

Questions and Answers

Paring Bluetooth remote shutter with an iPhone 6?

Battery all but dead, got a new one, LED flashed but after turning iPhone 6 on, the unit never paired!

Delete the first pairing settings from your Bluetooth settings on the phone and start fresh. If your product required a Pin to be entered then you will want to do that also. Usually, the pins are 0000 or 1234.

The light flashed on the remote. but I is not connecting to the phone?

The light keeps flashing. The phone says connection unsuccessful. Make sure "AB Shutter3 is turned on and in range. They are setting right next to each other. Then the light on the remote stops flashing and the light is off. I have tried: I tried setting this up several times. I have turned the remote off and tried turning the phone off and restarting. I think it was caused by: I don't know

Do not activate the Bluetooth Settings on your phone until the AB Shutter3 is on. Remove it from your Bluetooth list if you have paired it in the past. Contact click@abshutter3.com by email if the problem persists further.

Yes, I bought an iKlip Grip tripod at the Apple Store and can't get the remote to work?

It keeps asking me to turn on the shutter. What are they asking for exactly? What? I just can't get the remote button to pair with the iPhone. When I turn on blue tooth and it searches for the remote button it says it can't pair and suggests that I turn on the shutter. How do I do that?
