Geek Software of the Week: DSLR Controller!
I am getting a Canon EOS Rebal T3i DSLR to do the video netcast! I am SO jazzed! But, that makes this week’s GSotW very, very targeted! So, if you don’t have one of the supported DSLR’s…. sorry!
“Control your Canon EOS with your Android device!
TP-Link TL-MR3040DSLR Controller was the first and is still the best app to fully control your Canon EOS DSLR from your Android device, with nothing more than a USB cable. No computer or laptop required, no root required. All you need is a compatible mobile device, a compatible camera, and the right USB cable. If you have Wi-Fi-capable EOS model or a WFT box, it also possible to connect via Wi-Fi.
BREAKING NEWS: Turn a cheap TL-MR3040 pocketable wireless router into a Wi-Fi module for any supported Canon EOS model, and use DSLR Controller wirelessly!
Though we still call it a BETA officially, DSLR Controller is the oldest and most complete app to remote control a Canon EOS DSLR from a smartphone or tablet. It offers you remote liveview, control of most common settings, capture, focus and zoom control, image and video review, timelapse, HDR/AEB, focus bracketing – and much more! See the about page for a full list of features, system requirements and screenshots.
DSLR Controller has been covered by several large news outlets, as well as a number of magazines. A prominent core developer of Android itself even called it his app of the year.”
It can even work as a wireless remote with a cheap TP-Link pocket router! Watch this YouTube video for more info:
