Has anyone tried this out with a cheap android tablet? I'm considering buying an android tablet rager than shelling out for a camranger

See this. Links to DSLR Controller's page for firmware modding the TP-MR3040. I do know that the CamRanger will talk to my Nook HD or my Galaxy S-III Mini, and since it also is based on the TP-MR3040, I would expect the same from the DSLR Controller's firmware. Of course, the CamRanger will also support Windows 7 and 8, iOS, and Mac OS 10, and Nikon cameras, while the DSLR Controller solution is officially strictly Android-Canon, but not everyone needs multi-platform support.

I use DSLRControler with the with the TP-MR3040 with a 2013 Nexus 7. Definitely alot quicker preview with a usb direct connection to the camera. Good option if you have plenty of time and patience to take your shots, but for about $40 for both the app and router, not too bad.

I have the same MR3040 and Nexus 7, set the camera to shoot RAW + small fine JPEG, the review jpeg shows up on the Nexus in less than 2 seconds ('RAW only' will take 10-15 sec to generate a review on the device). So when I need speed like with a portrait studio setting, I can turn off the Live View on the Controller app and use it as reviewing device, and use the camera as it is not connected, at normal speed. After each shot, the MR3040 will sent the jpeg to the Nexus by itself, or view them in Gallery mode to see all the shots stored in the CF card, RAW files included.

Mine just arrived. At 1st it wouldn't connect, but I did just upgrade the firmware on my T5I to 1.1.3 from Magic Lantern. Cleared all my settings and it worked! framerate is smoother than when directly wired. Now to change some security settings and I'll be good to go.

I can use my sucky eyes to focus on the larger screen now!

Did not think of that. Will have to try it out. i normally never shoot raw+jpeg. Thanks
