At the Consumer Electronics Show last month, we introduced you to CameraMator—an accesory that offers wireless remote DSLR camera control via both Android and iOS mobile devices. On the Macworld/iWorld expo floor this weekend, we found CamRanger.
Update: My on-the-fly Macworld/iWorld reporting seemed to have made me overlook many of the features from CamRanger. While we try to give thorough in-person reports from tradeshow events, sometimes the noise of the show floor can drown out important facts.
Not to be confused with CameraMator, CamRanger is a mobile-phone-sized bit of hardware that plugs into your Nikon or Canon DSLR camera, allowing for wireless remote control via an app on your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch or Mac computer from up to 150 feet away. CamRanger offers extensive remote camera controls, including live view, touch focusing, incremental focus adjustments, full resolution image transfer/viewing, movie recording, RAW support, advanced camera property control, remote AF/MF toggle, advanced intervalometer, HDR, focus stacking and review of camera card contents.
Both CamRanger and CameraMator are priced at $299 USD.
Let's hear from you: Have you tried using an accessory like this with your DSLR?
