I thinking watched the video before... $300 is a bit steep, but the fact that it works on multiple cameras is nice... but right now it only supports iOS devices...

I can't justify the cost for wifi... I use a USB cable and tether my 5d3 and 7d to my android tablet using dslr controller.

The camranger looks cool and if the price comes down a bit, and gets android support, I may consider it in the future.

The cost is due to license from canon. Canon provided the SDK to allow the device to br made and charged an outrageous license fee and RESTRICTED it to only that device currently. I myself have been attempting to code an interface to allow use of both Nikon and Canon on Android and iOS -- Nikon has been the only one to release a USEABLE SDK to work off of. Canon still will not provide the SDK without an outrageous fee and excessive restrictions.

I have it and it works as advertised. Photo transfer to device is substantially faster than Canon's WFT for my 1DsIII and 1DIV. Photos are displayed nicely. I am considering using it for a large screen display for an upcoming family photoshoot so folks can see it right away.

Not quite as portable as WFT but I can easily adapt the portability issue. This will be great for my shoots that are offsite and I can use the lightweight iPad and CamRanger combo or even my iPhone.

Just thought I would share.

But this may do the same thing from the OEM: http://www.amazon.com …FP4/ref=cm_cmu_​pg__header (external link) $50 for the app $50 for router that would be fair.

That does look like the same thing as the cam ranger router, but in order to use the cam ranger software, you have to register the router with cam ranger, and I would assume that they will not register a serial number that was not purchased from them. I could be wrong though...

You are correct, that's there copy protection. What I would like to see if someone who purchased the Camranger could try the TP-LINK TL-MR3040 out and see if it works.

Once the app is unlocked and it may be able to connect to a TP-LINK TL-MR3040.

This could save a lot of money if you wanted to use Camranger on more than one camera at the same time.

Nice.
Though I love the idea, I think Chines clones will show up soon at very much lower price.

Or the guys that have already made apps that work thru usb cables could update them to work thru the TP-LINK TL-MR3040
