Wi-Fi Passthrough Mode Test

7D connects to my old Samsung Galaxy S2, which runs the DSLR Controller in Wifi Passthrough Mode. Nexus 7 (2013) automatically detects the server setup, and operates as it is connected through the USB cable, with a bit delay and jerkiness. Image download time is also slower, but overall it works as a wireless controller/viewer setup.

Depending on conditions, pretty much - if you try and meter.

I just got the OTG cable today and tried it on an ASUS memopad HD7 (ME173X) and it did not work. I think it sees the camera it just does not want to talk to it. DSLR Controller suggested rooting the device.

I've never done rooting and getting a little nervous about it. It seems there's a couple of ways doing it from your PC or by apk.

So, what's the highest def 7" pad that works without rooting, and also doesn't cost an arm and a leg?

A small ballhead adaptor will be more flexible..

The DSLR Controller website lists compatible devices. Just go to devices at the bottom of the home page.

The Joby phone grip works very well. Unfortunately it doesn't go wide enough for my current phone. Joby has promised me a bigger version "later next year".

Nexus 7, the 2013 rendition, for a bit less the original Nexus 7

Kindle Fire HD 7 is working! These are now pretty cheap and had HD screens. To get it to work you need to upgrade the OS to jellybean 4.2 via N2A operating system. $20.00 well sent to convert from a Kindle to an Android tablet! Http://WWW.n2aos.com (external link)

Good to know although I think the HDX version is the one with the 1920x1200 display and that one goes for the same price as the latest Nexus.

BTW, how does DSLR Controller work when using the viewfinder? Or do you always have to work in LiveView mode? I'm mainly interesting in reviewing photos, not using the LiveView mode to take the photos.

Thanks!

Get this if you want to be able to hold phones up to the size of a Galaxy note II on your DSLR. This is what I use with DSLR Controller and it works great!

The Controller can be set not to use live view, you can operate the camera as usual. To review the photo right after the shot on your device, of cause the cable needs to be connected, the Controller can either be set to generate gallery of thumbnails of all the photos (jpeg or RAW) in the camera, or in full screen mode to display the shot you jut took.
