Connecting a computer to your DSLR camera opens up a brand-new world of opportunities in image making. You can gain greater control over your in-camera adjustments and get a more accurate picture of your lighting and setup. In this course, Rich Harrington introduces the tethered shooting workflow and shows how to connect your camera to a computer, an external monitor, and even an iPad or mobile device. He'll review the shooting environment, building the tethered station, software solutions for tethering, and wireless shooting with a CamRanger or GoPro camera. These techniques work well both in the studio and in the field, so you'll be prepared for all tethered shooting scenarios.

The Go Pro camera has it's own ability to actually capture from a Go Pro using a tethered app. Now, this is pretty straight forward, you need to use the Go Pro and you need to have one of the newer Go Pros with the built in wifi capability. I have the newer Go Pro 3+ here, but there are lots of Go Pros with wifi. When you hit the button on the side of the camera, it's actually going to turn on the wifi network and you'll see the blue lights flashing. Now, this will consume more battery. The thing to realize is once you've got this connected, it opens up the ability to control this with the mobile app.
What's cool about that is that this camera does some pretty impressive photo specs. Now, it is capable of up to 12 megapixels, which is great for an action camera, and you could shoot a burst rate as high as 30 still images per second. That is great for sports photography or you can spread that out and shoot a higher burst rate over multiple seconds doing things like five frames a second or ten frames a second. Its going to vary by camera and the version that you are using. But its pretty flexible overall. With that said lets head out to the field and go ahead and pair this.
And, give you a quick idea, on how you can use the Go Pro for some action shooting. Or, covering remotely, with the camera and your mobile device.
