Ahead of the launch of the CamRanger II the company has announced a mini version of its wireless remote control system that it says has a longer range than the original in a body half the size. The CamRanger Mini does much the same things as the original model did, but now has a reach of 400 feet and will cost 2/3rd of the price.
Designed to work with Canon and Nikon DSLR systems the device acts as a go-between to connect a camera with a tablet or phone. It allows users to preview what the camera is seeing and to take control of basic, and in some cases more advanced, settings before triggering the shutter.
As was announced, the company has produced a new app to run the CamRanger II, and it appears to have made it available to use first with the CamRanger Mini. The Mini is said to be slightly faster than the original model, and now the app offers equal support for iOS and Android products, as well as 200% live view magnification and a level, pinch zoom functions and a more automated focus stacking process.
There is no mention of Fujifilm and Sony support, as there will be with the CamRanger II, but there’s a good chance the firmware will be updated at some stage to allow this.
The CamRanger Mini is available now for £229.99/$200. For more information see the CamRanger website.
Introducing the NEW CamRanger MINI
New CamRanger MINI enables remote live view and firing of a Canon or Nikon DSLR camera from up to 120m (400ft) away, via a tablet or smartphone, with the ability to modify exposures and settings completely wirelessly.
The CamRanger MINI hardware and free app work together to create their own Wi-Fi network, even in remote locations, without relying on another network or router. This offers the ability to change the camera’s shutter, aperture, ISO and white balance, along with many other settings. The powerful app even has the ability to run more advanced functions such as focus-stacking, time-lapse and HDR photography.
This new device is ideal for any application where remote view and capture are useful or even essential, such as nature and macro photography, wildlife and birdwatching plus commercial applications where having a camera in a high, tight or remote location is necessary. Controlling a Nikon or Canon DSLR camera with a smartphone or tablet has just become easier.
The built-in Lithium-ion battery lasts about 3-4 hours and is charged through the micro-USB port. Wi- Fi range is over 120m (400ft), though the range depends greatly on the exact location and scenario. The CamRanger MINI works with most Nikon and Canon DSLRs and the included case can be used for carrying, storage and attaching to the camera or tripod.
The CamRanger Mini app is available for iOS and Android and is free download from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Both the Android and iOS apps have been completely revamped from the original CamRanger app.
