I'm attaching a photo taken with the aid of CamRanger, using LiveView, focused with touching the subject on my iPad. My real delight is this focus technique, where I can choose a focusing point remotely while watching my scene on my iPad.  Then, the battery drain becomes a hindrance.  I exhausted a fully charged Canon battery on my 5D3 in about an hour while on LiveView. Consider an AC adaptor to power the camera if AC is available, or, an external battery adaptor if unavailable.  Another "point" I worry is the heat generated by the sensor while on LiveView.  I have been judious on using LiveView because of these two factors.
I'd like to read other's comment on a useful product.
Many thanks.

Since the camera is engineered to shoot video, I don't think live view will stress it to the point of concern.

I like to use it in "Client Mode" where each image is sent to the iPad as you shoot. I don't mind having a curious client see what I've shot, but it can slow things down if they have to look at the LCD and zoom in etc. With the CamRanger, they can sit off to the side and see what I'm getting in real time.

I never actually download images to the iPad. I just preview them there. I use the camera card review mode at the end of a shoot to get a sense of what I have.

@Brand B,
Thanks for the reassurance.  Not too, too concerned.

Great little device, set-up is easy and use even easier. Well worth the price to me. All your camera controls, viewing and touch focusing available on an iPad or iphone type device for remote control or use it for client or art director viewing (in client mode) while the session is going on.
