This little guy makes dough-smeared, paint-blotched, ink-flecked phones a thing of the past. Also awesome for keeping your shot nice and still for stop-motion work. Hands-free content, powered by the magic of Bluetooth.

Our remote allows you to capture photos, or start and stop recording video on your smart phone remotely, without touching your phone. Connect to your smart phone via bluetooth in seconds, and operate your built-in camera and most 3rd party camera apps (including Instagram and Stop Motion Studio) with the click of a button!

  • Go ahead, GET THOSE HANDS DIRTY - as an artist and creator, it can be hard to keep your hands clean. With the CANVAS remote, no need to worry about getting your phone messy - operate the camera with our easy-to-clean remote, and keep that smart phone pristine!
  • SEAMLESS SOCIAL videos - lose the dreaded "millennial pause" when you’re making selfie social videos. Use the CANVAS remote instead, and *magically* start and stop recording without breaking up your flow.
  • DON’T LOSE THE SHOT - when you get your frame set, the last thing you want to do is accidentally bump your phone and mess it up. Keep your hands off once you get the shot set, and operate the camera remotely.
  • ESSENTIAL for STOP MOTION - to make professional stop motion animation, you want to avoid touching the camera if at all possible, to reduce any camera shake. With the CANVAS remote trigger - get your camera set, and capture your image sequence without touching your phone.
  • UNIVERSALLY COMPATIBLE - works with the built-in camera app on most bluetooth enabled smart phones, and most 3rd party camera apps - including photography apps, video apps, stop motion apps, and social media apps like Instagram.

    The CANVAS Remote Camera Trigger works by communicating directly with your phone - with or without a Canvas lamp. In other words, a Canvas Lamp is NOT required to use the remote (but, of course, highly recommended :)

    This remote is compatible with bluetooth enabled smart phones and tablets from Apple, Samsung, Moto, Nexus, Xiaomi, and Sony.

    Remote comes with battery included (pre-installed) plus a second, replacement battery in the box!

    I wanted to love it..

    This was good while it worked. I got mine at Christmas 2023 and just started using it for a month now. Today I whipped it out to take pictures and the clicker would not connect to my phone. I did "Forget device" to add the clicker again and despite appearing on the list, it would not register. Then the clicker stopped appearing altogether.

    Thanks for your feedback! Please reach out to for help with your remote!


    Game changer


    Not worth it

    I find that I can’t extend out all the way because the arm becomes weak and it flops down.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Do you offer package protection?


    Yes! Absolutely - during checkout, just toggle "Route Package Protection" is enabled. For a small fee, this will protect your package from any loss or damage due to shipping mishaps. Without package protection, your order will covered in the event of loss or damage and CANVAS is not responsible for replacing lost or damaged product :(

    Can I change my shipping address after placing an order?


    Maybe! Contact immediately if you'd like to change your shipping address after placing an order. Our team will work in a timely manner to address this issue for you, but please note that our business hours are Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm. If you place an order outside of our business hours, we are not able to guarantee that we can change your address before it is shipped. If we are unable to edit your address in time, we suggest that you reach out to the shipping carrier to request an address change for your shipment!

    Do you ship internationally?


    We’re based in the U.S., but we can ship to most countries. When you add a product to your cart, you can view prices for the different shipping options.

    For many international destinations, duties and taxes are included with the shipping price. Look below the quoted shipping price for the breakdown of shipping, duties, and taxes.

    If duties and taxes aren’t included in your shipping quote, they will be charged to you when the package is delivered. For example, USPS rates do not include prepaid duties and taxes.

    If you have any questions about shipping, please reach out to us at

    Last thing: We include a basic set of international power adapters with all international orders, ‘cuz we’re nice like that. 😀

    When will I receive my order?


    Please allow up to 5 business days for your order to be processed and shipped. The shipping time you select during checkout (economy vs expedited) effectively starts after your selected shipping carrier picks up and scans your order.

    How can I track my order?


    Once your order leaves our warehouse, you will receive a shipping confirmation email and/or SMS with the tracking information. We recommend downloading the Shop app so you can get updates on your order status.

    Where can I return my order?


    First, take a look at our Returns & Exchanges policy. If your return qualifies, go here to start a return. If you want to exchange your purchase or see if you’re eligible for a replacement, reach out directly to our customer experience team here. We’re more than happy to help!

    What is your Return Policy?


    You can find our Returns & Exchanges policy here .

    My package shows as delivered. I haven’t received it! Now what?


    From time to time, a carrier will log a package as delivered even though it’s still in transit. Hang tight for 3 more business days because it usually shows up.

    Also, be sure to check around the front of your home, especially behind bins, pots, plants, and fences and under doormats. Ask your building’s management or neighbors who may have collected it for you. You wouldn’t believe where our customers have found packages!

    If your package still shows as delivered and it hasn’t appeared after 3 more business days, contact our customer experience team here.

    We’d be happy to investigate this further with you!

    Note: Once a package is shipped, the tracking information and delivery is outside of our control. That’s why we’re not responsible for any missing or stolen packages. We’ll always try our best to resolve this issue for you, but we suggest filing a claim directly with the carrier. In most cases, they’re better able to assist you.

    Can I make changes to my order once it’s already been placed?


    Unfortunately, we are unable to edit orders after they have been placed. Canvas is a small business, and not editing orders helps us avoid mishaps, such as shipping the wrong product to our amazing customers. We want to ensure you have a smooth unboxing experience with Canvas!

    That said, we can cancel your order and give you a full refund. You can then place a new order for what you really wanted.

    If your order has already shipped out of our warehouse before you cancel it, we ask that you wait to receive your order and then contact our customer experience team here. They will walk you through the next steps.

    Note: If you request to RTS your package before it arrives to you, you will not be refunded the shipping cost, and a $20 RTS fee will be deducted from your refund.

    My order has already shipped, can I still cancel it?


    Once your order has shipped, we ask that you wait to receive your order before initiating the returns process here. Waiting is how you ensure that you receive a full product refund.

    Note: If you request to RTS your package before it arrives to you, you will not be refunded the shipping cost, and a $20 RTS fee will be deducted from your refund. When will I hear back from the customer experience team?

    We are a tiny but mighty team of 3-4 customer experience representatives! We receive a lot of messages, so give us 48 hours to respond. We work hard to ensure your needs are met as soon as possible, and we won’t forget about you.

    How can I stay up to date with the happenings of Canvas?


    To be the first to know when we restock, release new products, or have anything else up our sleeve, follow us on Instagram or sign up for our newsletter. We post and email when we have anything exciting to announce.

    How can I collaborate with Canvas?


    We sure appreciate your interest in collaborating. To start the process, fill out this questionnaire and tell us more yourself. We will take a look, and if we think we’d be a good match, then we will reach out to discuss next steps.
