Not sure if this is the tight place to post this, but as the title, it seem to fit.

Bought a Galaxy S3 late last month and have been trawling for free apps (as you do) and came accros Helicon Remote (as mentioned previously). For the sake of £1.20 for a OTG adaptor lead, I thought it was worth a play - the lead was on the door mat when I got home this eveing.

It works :D

Not had a full play with it yet, but it does appear to operate the camera (a 7D). Not sure where I'll be using it though, perhaps it could be useful for astrophotography, although I do want to try the macro stacking tool.

For £1.20 I'm happy.

Lawrence

will check it out

Now if someone could do this for the iphone/ipad...

Not going to be possible without either jailbreaking or using another device to do the USB hosting, eg a laptop. Apple have limited their devices intentionally.

The other cool feature in Android that might be useful when out and about is the ability to set up ad-hoc wifi networks.

I don't know if that software supports it but in concept you could connect your phone to the camera and control things from a tablet remotely.

This looks really cool!

An app for ipad would work better for me, but my phone is a droid, so I will look into it!

Is anyone using the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7" or the Kindle Fire HD 7" with this app? I am wanting to use it with a T2i and a 5d mark II and am wanting to use one of these sub $200 tablets if they will work. I am sure a different ROM would have to be installed on the Kindle, but that isn't a problem.

Start here and do a lot of reading. XDA is a great resource for all Smart phones/tablets. Read the Q and A section first. The custom ROMS are found in the development section. I have been customizing and rooting all my Android devices for the last 4 years and have not bricked one yet. But the key is to read and follow the directions provided. Always make backups.

I have the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 and it work fine with my Canon t3i. Word of warning about the SGT 2 7" though, don't do the latest update as JellyBean on this device suuuucks. Keep it at 4.0.3 ICS.

I just installed this on my Galaxy Note II after making sure it worked with the free app.

Plugged into my 5D MkIII, this is the BOMB!
My live view screen is now huge, I have access to so much (I only toyed with it on a tripod out the back door)
I can adjust everything, aperture, EC, etc.
The manual focus buttons are very cool. You can blow your view up to 10X then fine tune focus using the buttons,. and get things razor sharp.
I'd imagine this would be very handy for macro shooters, and studio shooters.

Impressive tool indeed.

If I could find a cheap way to mount a nexus 7 to a tripod, this would interest me...

Does anyone by any chance have a 1D mk3 and this app?

Can you please let me know if yours is working, I cant get mine to work again. The app opens but that's about it, I can't open or change any settings.
There once was a time that it worked but now it doesn't and it makes me unhappy:(

Any help would be appreciated
