Has anyone tried a Smartphone DSLR controller.

I have a 60D and an DriodX v 2.3.4 and would like to find a controller that is compatible with my DROID, but I hear that is easier said then done.

Works well with my 5D2 on both samsung note 10.1 and note phone.

Hmmm I got some kind of incompatibility notice and quickly click on "refund". Maybe I should give it another try, it would be so cool to be able to operate my camera from my Droid.
I want to to some time sequences; like take a shot every minute for an hour, which I know can be done when my camera is tethered, but I don't think it's possible from the camera alone. Can it be done with the smartphone app?

I'm using DSLRcontroller on my 5D3, it also works with the 1D3, though not as much functionality.

It can be very useful.

Thanks for the link, but since I posted this message I upgraded to a Galaxy Nexus and the app is working perfectly. I love it :D

I use DSLR controller on a samsung galaxy s II, as a video monitor using focus peaking, not the greatest implementation of peaking but works great, as an affordable external screen with decent refresh rate.

Your Droid X probably would have worked if you put it in a desk/lap dock, USB hosting isn't normally turned on w/o the dock.
