Use your bluetooth headset as a wireless camera shutter button.

So I came across this article today http://m.engadget.com/2012/05/10/htc...headsets/?CG01 and it says that the One X has this little feature that allows you to use certain bluetooth headsets as a wireless camera shutter button. This peaked my interest, so I found my old Motorola H505 headset and gave it a shot. And surprisingly it worked with my EVO 4G LTE! All you have to do is pair the headset with the phone, enter the camera app, and click the phone key on your bluetooth.

I would like to hear about other people's results.

Do you have to press the phone key three times every time, or just for the first shot?

I just tried this out with my old ps3 bluetooth set and it worked! I just needed to press the power button on my bluetooth device once tho. It could be different for every bluetooth device too.

This works with the Plantronics Voyager Pro+. All you need to do is long press talk button till you hear the beep. It works great for surveillance and investigations.

Doesn't seem to work with the Plantronics Discovery 975. I tried pressing the button once, three times, 5 times, and just pressing it until something happened. Nothing happened.Not holding out any hope for this, but if anyone has had any luck with getting a Plantronics Discovery 975 to do this, I would love to know what the trick is.

works with my LG Tone, just one push on the talk button does the trick. Now the real question is, is this more of a glitch than a feature?

Wow, that's bad-ass! I just tried it with my OG Jawbone and it works! I only need to press the button once. Thanks for the tip.
