Do you plan to keep the 5d3 for wedding work too? Or did you plan on replacing the 5d3 with the 1Dx? If so, and if you're using/liking the silent shutter on the 5d3, you're going to miss that sorely on the 1Dx. The silent shutter mode on the 1Dx is not very quiet. :lol:

No no the 5D III is a definite keeper, I will sell the 7D.

Check out the CamRanger; it's awesome and much, much more than a wireless trigger, you get liveview on your iPad and can control everything, not just shutter release.

Thank you

I completely misunderstood! I though you were deciding between a 5D3 and 1DX. Then it's a no brainer...sell the 7D, keep the 5D3 and buy the 1DX; what's to question :)

I was using a camranger for a few months and now I bought a WFT E6 with DSLR controller which is much much more powerfull and can make a nice workflow RAW or JPGs are send directly on the screen of the smartphone without being in liveview mode
If pictures are recorded simultaneously in RAW and JPG (S or M1) the jpg appears instantaneously on the tablet or smartphone for controls.

Combined with Photomate, we post process all RAW files directly on a 5" or 6" smartphone or 10" tablet and can publish results directly on Smugmug, Facebook or any servers in full size 5184x3456 (included WB, Noise Reduction color & chroma separately, highlights recovering, lens corrections, etc etc anything DPP can do).

After using a few weeks WFT E6 and a Galaxy Note .. I left my camranger and Ipad on the shelf.

I actually just downloaded DSLR Controller to try out for myself. I do not have a 1Dx I just wanted to help out someone that does. I have a 60D. Although it does not have wifi, there are ways to get it working with a wifi android stick and power bank. I may give it a try, since I don't own any Apple products.

I looked at the WFT E6, but I couldn't find any camera controller; what's the DSLR controller you are referring to? Do you have a link for it?

With the WFT E6

Helicon Remote and DSLR controller are working with any Andoid devices (smartphones and tablets).

But you can control the 1DX with any web browser (Safari, Firefox, Explorer, Dolphin, Chrome...) like Canon EOS Remote through any platform (OSx, IOS, Android, Windows). The main limits through a web browser => stacking function is missing and viewing RAW files is a bit tricky, but basically you can control many functions of the 1DX .

Many thanks for the info - Horses for courses. I'll stick with the iPad and CamRanger.

To my knowledge, this is as good as you're gonna get: http://www.lenscoat.co​m …d®-clear-back-p-867.html (external link)
From the product page - "The BodyGuard can accommodate cameras with L-brackets mounted."

They also have lens coats, because it's LensCoat, can't really go wrong there I suppose.

Thanks for the suggestion. I did buy a LensCoat item but went with a RainCoat (external link) instead of the BodyGuard. I'm pretty sure it'll work for what I want (keeping the camera clean/dry during the hikes) and it gives me the option of snapping shots without pulling things apart (just like the Body/Lens guards.) If it'll mount to a tripod it'll let me mount my RRS clamp and BR sling so...

I'll let you know how it works out next month. :)
