Has anyone any experience good or bad using the Case Air wireless controller?

I need to be able to manage 70D cameras shooting video (or anything else) from remote mountings. I don't need panning and such, but I do need to be able to start and stop and maybe do some focus changes over the course of a couple of unattended hours.

I assume you looked at some of the reviews?

Yes, I did. Not a lot of info. Amazon reviews cast quite a bit of shade, and I didn't see much in the online reviews to counter those specific points, such as the real difficulty of gaining and maintaining a wireless connection and when/how it was difficult.

No experience with the Case Air, But I use DSLR Controller and a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 and
have been quite happy with the combination. I shoot with a 5D MK III and a 7D MK II, and have
not had any problems thus far...I shoot mostly stills, and have not used the video control features.

Regards,

I've tried DSLR controller. Unfortunately, it seems to need frequent manipulation or something about it falls asleep and loses connection.

Same problem with Case Air. I wound up returning it.
