remote control your DSLR with your smartphone
« on: August 04, 2011, 02:51:20 PM »
 I think this is realy cool

http://androidcommunity.com/dslr-controller-app-released-today-control-your-dslr-with-android-beta-20110804/

you can plug your phone on your camera and control it from the phone
I wonder if you can make time lapse movies using this?

I guess you could call that the most expensive remote cable release ;)

what do you guys think, it apparently only works with Canon :)

This requires that your phone acts as a usb host, so probably never

the day that I see this on the iOS I will have long since retired (and I am not that old ;))

Oh and this is really interesting...

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/light-meter-free/id410228606?mt=8

though I can't say I've tried either of these apps. (Reviews look promising on these)

also, keep in mind this is still your phone, so I can't imagine it working as precisely as say... a $200 light meter. But free? Sh*t, i'm on my way out the door to try it!

Not so fast, my friend.  ;)

very cool it certainly wont be buggy like the beta android app

but I think you still need to connect your camera to a computer, the android app does not need any computer which means you can take it wherever

Neither the article nor the video state that it has an intervalvometer, unless that's what they mean by "Continuous capture."  It would be nice, if it does have it!

this is from the description of the app on the marked:

Quote
There are many features on the to-do list. Including for example video support, timelapse, scripting, and image review and transfer.

so no time lapse or video now but it's in their plans

Well, a iPod-to-remote cable would be a pretty slick accessory if it were done well. 

Hell, once iOS/OS X merge, the USB-control via app wouldn't be that far fetched.
