CamRanger Newest Firmware Update
CamRanger LLC is pleased to announce a firmware update for the award winning CamRanger. The newest update allows the photographer or videographer to simultaneously broadcast images or live feed to multiple iPads, iPhones, Android devices, Mac or Windows computers. The CamRanger allows advanced wireless camera control of over three dozen Canon DSLR and Nikon DSLR cameras and wireless tethering to an iPad, iPhone, Android, Mac or Windows computer, including the option of wireles s shooting into Lightroom.
The firmware update for the CamRanger allows the photographer to take photos from either the camera or from an iPad (or iPhone, Android device, Mac or Windows computer) and have clients, directors, colleagues, or students view the images or live feed from their own device using the "CamRanger Share" application which is specific for each platform. If the photographer or videographer has watermarks turned on then the person using the CamRanger Share app will see watermarks as well on their own device.
In addition to adding the ability to share images the firmware update allows the photographer to bridge into an existing WiFi network. The CamRanger creates its own WiFi network, but if the photographer wants to bridge into a network to extend the WiFi range, or post images to the Internet or FTP server immediately, then this feature gives the photographer this option.
In my opinion this is just an overexpensive piece of toy. I bought this thing in august and I must say if it works it's nice [it happened only one time]. It is inpossible to use this toy instand. You have to load the battery a day before for use because it takes hours to load. A full battery without use is empty in a few days time. I missed all my oppertunities to use it because of a dead expensive toy. I think even 50 years ago this should have been a technical shame. How come such an invalid instrument costs 250 euro's in Europe. Even 30 euro's should have been too much!
I bought this about a year ago and I just want to say it does what it is supposed to do but...There are issues that need to be addressed for many users. Be aware that the Kindle Fire Android app only works on certain Kindles. The response from when you activate the shutter remotely to the snap of the shutter is very slow. So it isn't practical for any type of action shots. I am a photography instructor and there are some cameras that it does not function well with. One of my students had a canon T3i and it would only work sporadically. Have used it on several different bodies from Rebels to the 1DS Mark III and have sporadic response from several different cameras. Some models work normally and some have issues. The only practical applications I see for this with the slow shutter response is for studio portraits or macro where the 1 to as much 2 second shutter delay isn't a predominant issue. The delay isn't from the wireless connection but rather from the application to the transmitter. Does not matter whether the signal is sent from 20 feet or 2 inches from the Ranger unit the delay is the same. Also my students and I have experienced a lot of software crashes using this on several different tablets which means that you have to do a re-boot to get the app to run again.
I was tired of my current hardwired tethering setup of cables and laptop, so, i tried this gadget. Installation was surprisingly easy (using my iPAD) and a CANON MK 5D MkIII). I have used it to take pictures of the moon through my telescope (much easier to focus and compose!), help me photograph hummingbirds (great signal range), and take macro shots (focus is much better when you're comfortable). I am really impressed with the software app that supports this device. All of the "normal" camera controls are displayed on your device (including the histogram), you can select the focus area, and set an intervalometer to create a timelapse. I would have given it 5 stars if there were more directions on using the app. Plus, there is a switch on one side that none of the included documentation describes what it does (and why is it there?),
If anyone can help, I would like to know why after 15 shots using the Camranger. The Nikon D700 battery dies. The timeframe is within 10-15 Minutes. Then the battery dies. I've tried different batteries, I used the camera without camranger on Live view and camera works fine. Nikon Support won't help they don't trouble shoot 3rd party devices. CamRanger blames Nikon, they won't help. Anyone else with this issue please help.
I have a very specific photographic use for this unit. I have not fully had a chance to use it in the field for its intended purpose because of this extra long winter. Setting up and testing in the house, I found the set up relatively easy, however the manual is very short and I think poorly printed(download fuller manual off the web). To establish the wifi connection may take a few tries but it does connect (noted as a "problem" in the user guide). Once the connection is made with the tablet (I'm using a Samsung Galaxy s4 8") the functions worked fine and were easy to use. The great feature is to be able to make the camera auto focus anywhere in the view by touching the desired focus point on the tablet screen. All other expected camera controls work by touch screen functions. Beyond my specific use, I can see that I may be using it often in hard to bend down to locations (I'm old enough this matters now). One problem, though not CamRanger's, is it is very difficult to see the tablet screen in bright sun. Fully upping the screen brightness may help, but I nave not tried this yet.
Using the Cam Ranger with an iPad makes focusing, increasing sharpness, a breeze. There is a slight learning curve, but nothing that should keep anyone away. The hardest thing was getting the lid off to insert the battery. With the layout, functions are easy to find and access. Highly recommended.
Easy to setup. Easy to use. Comes in handy while avoiding the harsh elements.
This will come in handy at the bird feeder or a flower when a human presence spooks away the subject. I set up my camera then go in the house or somewhere out of sight and watch on my iPad. If I need to make an adjustment I can and when I see the photo I want I snap the shutter
I use the equipment with Canon 5D Mark II and 1 DX. It works fine in Sony Experia Ultra (Android JB 4.3). But I find more function bottons works when using iPad such as: able to change the Camera mode (Manual, At, Tv), DOF button, etc. I believe, Camranger software for Android will be made the same with the one for iPad soon. In general, this is a good equipment. With this experience I am interested in buying their Motorized Tripod Head. Please if there is bundle offer for this Motorized Tripod Head.
In the studio I will still be tethered to the big screen even though I do not like the cord. But in the field & on location the CamRanger is the best. It can be a little slow on the bigger files, I wish they had a good mounting bracket built in, and a car charger would be great. That said on location this has been the best for checking and showing the images and all my clients just love to see what they are getting. Lots of features I have not used yet but I think this is a great product and worth the cost.
