Weye Feye wirelessly links your DSLR and smartphone via — you've guessed it — a Wi-Fi connection. 

The Weye Feye from French accessory manufacturer XSories is a compact device that connects Nikon and Canon DSLRs without built-in Wi-Fi capabilities to a smartphone for remote controlling and image transfer. Some more recent DSLR models come with built-in Wi-Fi functions, but for those that don't the Weye Feye looks like an interesting option. It's more compact than some of the third party devices we've seen before and offers a longer range and better control than some of the camera manufacturers' own adapters.

To use the device you need to plug into the camera's USB port and install a dedicated app on your Android or iOS device. You can then control your camera from a distance of up to 80m. In Live View mode you can change settings such as ISO, white balance or aperture, switch between still and video modes, focus manually or with the AF and of course trigger an exposure.  In Gallery mode you can view, select and share images on your smartphone or tablet. 

The Weye Feye plugs into your DSLR's USB port ...
... and then gives you a range of controls from your Android or iOS smartphones.

With dimensions of 83x45x16.5mm the Weye Feye is quite compact and can easily be strapped to a tripod leg with its velcro straps. Battery life runs from 7-8 hours in Live View mode to 14 hours in Gallery mode. The device will be available in September at a recommended retail price 249€.
