Best way to control Canon 5d III like wifi on 6d using an iPad or Android phone?
Jul 12, 2013

I have heard people connecting their 5D III to their macbook pro laptop using a USB cable and then connecting their iPad to their macbook pro laptop wirelessly so that they can see the desktop.

Using some software, they can see what is on the macbook pro that is controlling the 5D III and are able to control the 5DIII using their iPad.

I dont know how this is done, what software is actually used and if it is effective? I want to be able to use my iPad to control my camera from any position away from the camera. Hopefully be able to set focus points, shutter release, aperture, shutter speed, etc. all on my iPad like how it is done on the 6D.

Is this possible?
