WiFi Camera - Wirelessly connect your iPhone/iPad cameras
By Daniel Amitay
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
★★★ WiFi Camera makes a great remote-photography tool! Set up one device to take a group photo, and use the other as a remote! ★★★
WiFi Camera will allow you to connect two iOS devices wirelessly. You will be able to receive and transmit the camera view with the other device, in addition to sending photo capture requests, which will take a full-resolution photo on the receiving device, transfer it to the requesting device, and save the photo on both devices.
Simply download WiFi Camera, install and run it on two devices or more, and it works like a charm!
NOTE: You need to install and run WiFi Camera on two devices, one of which should have a camera.

It is possible that your wireless network does not support the Bonjour Networking protocol that WiFi Camera utilizes. You should make sure that both devices are successfully connected to the same wireless network and that there is successful connectivity. If this does not work, it is recommended that bluetooth be turned on for both devices.
What's New in Version 1.2
iOS 6 and iPhone 5 support
iPad shows live image from iPhone instead of iPad live image that I want to capture
I'm confused. I want to take a picture with what I should be seeing on my iPad if I were using the default iOS camera app with the camera turned to be facing myself.. However, using the WiFi Camera app, my iPad is showing whatever the live image that my phone sees instead.
Actually, the small, inset picture IS showing the live image being captured by my iPad, but that inset live image is so small it's impossible to see if what you're taking a picture of.
Am I suppoed to be using the iPad default iOS camera to get the live image from my iPad and then use the Wifi Camera app as the remote to take the picture? I tried that but as soon as you go to Home or the default iOS camera app on the iPad, the Wifi Camera app disconnects.
The app has fairly decent reviews, so I feel like I'm just missing some simple step.
Awesome... Used Camera A and Camera B in the past but not any more... This is Great... Will be placing the iPhone 5 down behind a wall in a tight place using a small mirror and Strong Light... Hope to discover where I have a leak in my Roof while watching on my Mini... So far a Roofer and a Plummer could not tell where the Leak originates... We did rule out a leaking pipe... If we can locate where the water is originating when it rains then I can repair it without resorting to replacing the Entire Roof or totally destroying an entire bathroom to find the source...
Awesome idea, Still a bit rough
This app works great for what I need it for - remote viewing and picture taking between an iPhone and iPad. One problem I have is that every time I take a picture and review it afterwards, I lose the connection between both devices. So I then have to go back over to the other device and reconnect. if there was a way I could snap a photo, review it, then go right back to viewing the remote device, I'd gladly pay for this app. Maybe something like the ability to set up trusted devices that auto-accept connections from each other?
