I just got a brand new CAM RANGER, working only with IOS (so unfortunately, I can only use my IPAD 3 retina)

Until now, I was using a Galaxy Note 5.2" with Helicon remote for android (Helicon Android Remote + Galaxy Note)

both are working perfectly with a 5DMKII and with a limitaion on a 1DX (picture review time in the camera menu must be set to none)

Camranger will probably get a android version. It's pity because with IOS there are only old fashion smartphones with to small screens for photo or DSLR control. An Ipad 3 is on really convenient on the way.
Helicon Focus is much more powerful than Camranger, but WIFI is definitely a "must have" option for stacking

So I was too happy the 1Dx was functional so I just made a quick test as sample

Final result with helicon focus (with 40 pictures).

I would definitely recommend the cam ranger for outdoor shooting !

What kind of lens cap is that? I have something similar by OpTech for my 16-35L when I have my Lee adapter ring attached.

have the camranger also but unlike the prices you guys pay we have to pay the same in pounds ie $299
equals £279 pounds in uk terrible exchange rate but fantastic piece of kit cant recommend it enough
, believe their releasing a windows and android version later this year which would work well with the large screen size on the Samsung s2

I just saw this on another forum. Can it be used to monitor video shooting? Seems like it would be an awesome way to turn an idevice into a monitor...

I don't use video with 5DMKII and 1Dx ... but there are maybe too much lag in liveview mode to make handhold videos.
But you there is a video button in the software, I imagine to be used with a tripod.

I own and use a CamRanger and absolutely love it. During protrait sessions, people are much happier seeing the photos within about 15 seconds after the shot.

I use it with an iPad set on a coffee table and angled at the models. My biggest "problem" is that families always end up looking at the ipad and I have to remind them where the camera is located!!!!

I had mine hanging on an id ring on my 1Div but like the self made mounting idea. I use a retractable USB cable which takes a lot of "stuff" out of the way. I like the mount i saw here and ordered one from ebay.

Great device and I know that more folks are interested in purchasing because they see the photos in near real time and love what they see. This will pay for itself very quickly.

Told myself I would not buy this because of the price, but her I am, the sucker for gadgets. I cringed when I hit the pay button, but no sense crying over spilled milk. Looking forward to being untethered.

Look what I found: http://www.amazon.com ...FP4/ref=cm_cmu_pg__​headerexternal link A guy said it works with his Nikon, if this is what CamRanger is using under private label we are getting screwed. I have a friend that may try a little tweaking to the app and see if this will work. :wink:
