The camera can work in independent mode (one click to take photo, two clicks to start/stop recording video, triple click - to take photo in RAW/record bullet time videos).

The camera can be also controlled remotely via Bluetooth (Android application is going to be released soon, beta-version is available here).

You can also purchase additional accessories like waterproof case or selfie stick.
