It has been a while coming, and now it's finally here - the customized version of DSLR Controller you can run on a cheap Android TV stick to create a Wi-Fi module for your Canon EOS !
Now you can make any supported Canon EOS camera Wi-Fi capable, and you can control it with your Android phone or tablet running the normal DSLR Controller app from a distance !
Unlike other solutions with profit margins approaching entry-level camera prices, this solution can be up and running for about 100 USD !
More details are available on the DSLR Controller website (see the box below the post)
Please actively help me spread the word - as DSLR Controller is an Android app instead of an iOS app, most photography news outlets mostly ignore it unless a lot of noise is generated about it. I appreciate your help!
As for DSLR Controller itself, there will be a fairly major update within days!
Thanks! It's nice of you!
Awesome idea! Thanks a lot!
All normal DSLR Controller functionalities are available, just as if you were connect via USB instead of Wi-Fi. As for real-time playback, I assume you mean video review? I'm not sure the transfer speed is fast enough for that. It'd work, but with a lot of choppyness. I'd transfer the video to local storage before playing, if that is what you are after.
Lol, I bought a 80p hot shoe to tripod mount adapter from eBay, made a hole in a 50p case for my Xperia Mini then use that as the device I Wifi Direct connect to from Nexus 4 so just sits on top of camera all neatly with a short USB cable (£1.25) to 700D :D
I use your app quite often - Thanks much!
I have a old MyTouch 4g phone which i connect to my dslr (mounted on tripod) - Then i turn on Wifi tethering in it and use my Samsung GS3 as the client connected to it - Works for me all the time wiht liveview & focusing when I want to do self photography! You can check my cover photo which was clicked using this technique!
Thanks much and love your app +Chainfire
I really like your App, works like a charm on my cheapo Xoro Pad 714.
I went for the Xperia Tablet Z a month ago, which unfortunately seems not to have USB-Host-Mode. This will do the trick, and I won't mind paying 20,- € for the additional App unless it works.
A good idea will be to integrate a TV dongle Android in Canon BG-E8 Battery Grip Camera 600D camera but is it possible with two batteries 1500mA 7.3 to 8v
Good idea .... NO!
