Custom timer mode will take multiple shots as defined in your camera’s settings.

The Professional Pack is now available from both the Windows and Windows Phone Stores.
The Professional Pack is an optional extra that gives you live control of the camera’s mode, common settings, and the ability to use higher Live View resolutions.
To check your camera supports the features offered by the Professional Pack, connect your camera and go to the Camera Information page within the Camera Remote application.
The same upgrade is valid for both the Windows and Windows Phone versions.
A new patch release has been submitted to the Windows and Windows Phone Store. This release contains:

It’s been a while, but I’ve finally made some time to put together a new release for both Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8.1.
You can now touch anywhere in the Live View image in order to focus on that point.
Based on user requests, you can now easily save the review image to your phone and laptop for subsequent editing and sharing.
I’ve also added a Professional Pack option that allows you to control the camera settings live from your phone and laptop. For cameras that support it, this allows you to adjust exposure, shutter speed, aperture and ISO from within the application.
NOTE: There is currently an issue with getting the Windows Phone version of the Professional Pack. I have raised the issue with Microsoft and hope to have a resolution soon.
The Live View release is now available for Windows Phone. You can now see live video from the camera to make it even easier to get that perfect shot.
This release also fixes an issue with multiple photos not working as expected on some devices.
Head over and get it now.
That’s right, it’s the release you’ve been waiting for; Camera Remote now has Live View support!
