i want to buy a cheap android tablet for my 6D.
7 inch would be fine, not bigger.
8-16gb should be enough, i don´t need to store much on it.
this tablet goes into my backpack and i will use this tablet only with my 6D & WIFI.
so a good strong WIFI connection and a nice display is all i need.
speed should be decent for using the eos remote app.
any advice what to buy?
is the nexus7 the best option?
or is there a cheaper alternative for me?
Hi I am using a Samsung Galaxy Tab2 7" tablet, I use Chainfire DSLR Controller with mine on an EOS 7D I have no issues with the way these are working together and the extra real estate of the screen is great for live view focus, plus all the other things it does especially for video like smooth focus pull, without the creaking of fingers on the lens.
I don't know whether the DSLR Controller app will connect wirelessly, not available on 7D.
Be warned, if you might want to use DSLR Controller don't get an iOS device as they are too hogtied even when jail broken to be able to connect VIA CABLE to a DSLR and take controll, not supported in hardware! I do use my iPad 1 64Gb for importing photo's via cable, so I know they do that well enough.
Cheers and good shooting with whatever you go for..Graham.
