Remote DSLR Camera Control - Shoot with Sound and Automatic Trigger
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Snap your fingers and control your CANON EOS or NIKON DSLR camera remotely from your iPhone or iPod Touch!
Connect your DSLR camera to the USB port of your MAC, make sure it is connected to the same Wi-Fi wireless network than your iPhone, and that’s all your need!
-Trigger your camera by pressing on the trigger button on your iPhone: Ideal for shooting pictures with complicated angles where you cannot see through the camera’s view finder or for self-portraits!
-Trigger your camera based on sound level: Set the sound trigger level to a convenient level, for example, that of your fingers snapping, and fire the shutter that way. Ideal for those pictures where you wouldn’t want to appear holding your iPhone. Set the camera to a loud level for shooting the camera automatically only when a baby laughs loud enough, or set it to a very low level to fire the camera, for example, if a cat walks into the room.
-Program your iPhone to fire your camera based on predefined time intervals: Ideal for creating animations or stop-motion films, simply tell your iPhone to fire the camera for example, each 5 or 10 seconds, and on you go!
-Review your shots, erase, e-mail, or download your pictures into your iPhone’s Camera Roll directly from your iPhone by simply tapping on the picture you want!
1) This application requires additional software to be installed on a MAC running MAC OS X 10.6 - Snow Leopard only. You can download this software for free directly from: http://www.transcriptics.com/apps/remoteDSLR/
This software doesn’t work with Windows computers.
2) remoteDSLR works with almost all DSLR cameras, CANON, NIKON, SONY, OLYMPUS included! Before you download this application, make sure remoteDSLR is compatible with your camera by downloading and installing the aforementioned software (xRemoteDSLR), plugging in the camera, and testing whether or not you can shoot the camera from your MAC by pressing on the Take Picture button! If that works, your camera is compatible! If not, this app is not for you.
Attention: Set up your camera to PTP or PC Connection Mode while testing xRemoteDSLR!
This application is NOT for you if you are looking to remotely access more advanced settings of your camera, or to access your camera’s live view.
Clunky and limited
I was excited to see this app as there is a lot of potential in using the iPhone as a remote control for a camera. This application while promising is still not up to shape to be really used.
* Startup time of the server program on the Mac is very very slow.
* The interface is clunky. First time I took a picture the server program crashed.
* When I started the iPhone app before the server they didn't manage to sync. Restarting the App solved the problem.
* There are no camera controls what so ever. The only thing you can do is trigger the camera. In that sense the functionality is the same as the one I can get with a $15 remote from Nikon (w/o needing a computer server or iPhone).
* There is a long delay between the push on the iPhone and the camera shooting.
* The voice activated trigger is nice, but it is limited by the fact that you need to push the button before each sound activation. So this cannot be used say for going around and snapping your fingers for every photo you want.
Can't get it to work.
So I downloaded the software from the internet and installed it like the video on their website says. All was going well until I plugged in my camera (Canon EOS T2i) and then which the program promptly crashed as iPhoto opened automatically. I quit out of iPhoto and reopened the Remote DSLR software but my camera which appeared to be registering in the program, did not respond to any controls. The viewfinder was a black screen and it would not take any pictures. I don't know what's wrong, or how to fix it, but I haven't gotten a reply to any of my emails from the company. Definitely a waste of 99 cents if it wont even work.
Does not work
Not working and I have emailed the owner three times with no response. A waist of 99 cents
