So how is the tether working? Which software, it looks wireless.. I tried to use the Canon app with wifi but you had to go and manually select each image to review.. I want the last image to just appear on the screen.
I have the Canon 5D Mark IV with wifi, but found it too cumbersome to use for this. The setup was always taking me quite a bit of time, and I ended up fiddling with the camera wifi settings more than dialing in exposure and focusing on the shot.
I bought the CamRanger a few months ago and love it. It plugs into the camera and transmits wirelessly to an iPad, computer, etc. up to 150 feet away. I shoot RAW+Jpeg small, and it transmits the JPEG small to the camera and the image appears in 2-3 seconds. It will also transmit RAW images to your computer if you like, but naturally it takes a bit longer. The Camranger has its own free app for the iPad, Mac, or PC.
The iPad on set is great for client review. They can look at the iPad while I shoot, or I can show select photos to them after a session is done to make sure I got the shots they're looking for. It beats having to scroll through images on the camera LCD screen. If you prefer not to show the images to the client on-site, it's still great to have for your own review.
The Camranger has some additional features that I don't really use but others might. You can set it to bracket photos for HDR, focus stacking, live view, and you can also click the shutter from your iPad.
Anyway, I really like it and it's helped quite a bit in my workflow.
