Canon’s free EOS Remote app has actually been around for some time, yet till just recently I really did not have a Canon DSLR that assisted it. I recently updated to Canon 6D gear, and was nervous to see if the app made my industry photography any easier.
The application functions on the Canon 6D and 70D. It produces a WiFi network permitting you change your phone to that network as if it was a wireless gain access to factor. The cam generates an unique identifier, which you make use of as a password.
As soon as connected, the application lets you readjust Av, Tv, ISO and exposure values, remotely choose emphasis factors, and launch the shutter from your iPhone touch monitor. You could additionally remotely browse photos on your phone, and also rate and remove them. You will not download and install the full size photo, that would certainly be way too much for the data transfer supplied, yet you obtain a nice-looking, smaller photo. The application does not support MOV data, and they can’t be conserved to your iPhone. You also can’t from another location trigger movie method. There is also a great attribute that lets you establish your cam clock from your iPhone device time.
On a current trap to Monolith Valley on the Arizona and Utah boundary, I place the application via its speeds. Paring was easy, and the camera live view showed up on my iPhone display nearly promptly. Concentration factors were easy to choose by touching, and the shutter release when done from my phone was fast to react.
One concern revealed up if your are firing bracketed exposures or an HDR series. With the cam established correctly, you normally touch the shutter button on the electronic camera and 3, 5 or seven exposures fire off with just the one touch On the Canon EOS Remote, if you wish 3 direct exposures you turn on the shutter 3 times. Exact same for 5 or seven exposures. It seems a silly oversight. The camera switch and the remote button need to operate similarly.
On the plus side, I such as being able to set off the cam without touching it. It keeps the resonance down, and gives me the substitute of a hardware tethered shutter release with a bunch of added attributes a wired remote does not have.
Unfortunately, this application is iPhone only, which is a substantial mistake as more and more iPads are finding their method into digital photographers’ operations. Possibly one day. Of course you can use the iPhone variation on an iPad and perspective at 2X, but that’s a vicious compromise.
Canon ought to get kudos for producing the app. It’s free and helpful if you have a Canon it will collaborate with. With time I expect to view Canon remain to increase new attributes, but at its current status it is still both clever and useful to have along.
The app requires at the very least iOS 5 or later on.
