Just used this for the first time today with a Motorola Xoom and Canon 5D MKII and was very impressed. My main intent was to be able to change exposure times via usb rather than through the camera itself to get a 9 shot HDR (Canon limits to 3 shot AEB). Not only could I take the 9 shots I wanted but several more if needed while changing the overall range through the DSLR Controller HDR interface rather than the camera itself. UPDATE: 2017 years later this has proven to be the best app i've ever owned. Thanks Chainfire!
Great for controlling camera during astrophotography. I used this app for the first time while shooting this year's eclipse and couldn't be happier. The app was intuitive to use, let me control everything I needed to run the camera without touching it except to dial in manual focus. If you're planning on taking pics of anything that requires stability and you think you may need to dial in stuff while shooting, this app is invaluable.
It didn't work. Everyone else says it did, so tried another USB lead and it still didn't work. Rebooted phone and still no joy. So out came another USB lead, and as soon as it was plugged in, Bingo, up came the connection. Had a short play, looks good so far, plenty of uses for this tool I am sure. So if you buy it and it doesn't connect, do not give up, try different cables.
I had this app for a while now. It wasn't until I really understood that the suggested wifi TP-Link TL -MR340 wireless route can change the way you shoot Real Estate. Even with the very useful instructions, you still have to be prepared to figure things out. Like configuring the router to work with the app via a firmware update. Once this is done and you have set the camera off for the first time, when you are not even in the same room. Well, I danced a little Jig, I can tell you! Five stars from me. I can now play with the flashes without returning to the camera. What a great App ! Still using the Canon 5Dii with the Nexus 9
How do I get money back! This app just crashes. When I first launch it displays a black screen. Upon pressing a few buttons it will show live view. Then I have around 10-15 seconds to take photos before it say oops app failure. Gutted I had high expectations for this but my canon eos app does a better job!
Canon 70D and lg g5. The app keeps crashing. I have to power off my camera a few times before I can stay connected long enough to view and download my pictures. Fustrating.
