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.
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!
I purchased this app long ago and since then I've gotten a new phone (LG V20) which isn't compatible with this app. Works fine with my Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 but would like it to work with my phone. Please fix! Equipment being used: Canon EOS 7D
Works with Moto G5 Plus and Canon 5DMKIII flawlessly. Just needed a Micro-USB to female USB converter cable and the default camera USB 2.0 plug. Will use it for external control during timelapse to prevent camera movement. Please add Bulb Ramping support, and this will be the holy grail of apps! Will upgrade my review to 5 stars once this is out.
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.
Worked instantly with my Canon 70D, Samsung S7 Edge and $5 USB host cable. Saved a ton of $$$$ by not having to buy a field monitor. I would give 5 stars but it requires the third party MX player for video playback which contains ads. I paid for this app so I wouldn't have to see ads but unfortunately the video playback gives them to you...
