CamFi is a new option for those photographers looking to control their Nikon or Canon DSLR wirelessly. The device mounts on the hot shoe of compatible DSLRs and creates a Wi-Fi network that you can connect to using a PC or Mac as well as Android and iOS mobile devices. At $130 CamFi is priced well below manufacturer-provided options for high-end DSLRs.

With dedicated apps CamFi will allow for Live View on a mobile device, as well as capturing images and controlling camera settings such as AF points, metering mode, exposure compensation, aperture, shutter speed and ISO. You can also configure CamFi to automatically display images as they are taken and connect to an Amazon Fire Stick for viewing on TV sets. Additionally you can browse, delete and view images, including EXIF data on your camera from your mobile device or computer, and a robust built-in time-lapse feature is included.

According to the manufacturer CamFi has a six hours battery life and is compatible with devices and computers running at least iOS 7.0, Android 4.0, Windows XP or Mac OS X 10.10.
