I have a dedicated device here called a CamRanger. It's a very popular hardware device that you can connect to a camera to create a dedicated wifi network. Now, it goes beyond some of the wifi solutions I've already showed you, because it actually allows you to have tethering controls. This essentially takes the place of the computer. Now, with the CamRanger, what's going to happen is you're going to need to connect it to the computer and to the device. Now, you're going to connect to the camera via USB, it just has it's own battery pack inside, I'd recommend picking up extra batteries.
And then you go ahead and launch an app, either on your computer, or on your mobile device to actually tether it and take control. So it's pretty cool. This allows all sorts of great controls for video shooting, for shooting time laps, HDR, focus stacking. It really is a true, dedicated, extremely tight controls for a camera. Now, currently it only works with Nikon and Canon cameras. I'm going to recommend that you actually check out your camera and the website to see if it's fully supported.
The good news is, they're pretty rapid with updates, and they keep adding new cameras based on popularity, so if you're shooting with a modern camera from either Nikon or Canon, there's a good chance it's already supported. If not, just drop them a line and let them know, and if they get enough requests for a particular camera, they've shown in the past, that they'll add that support. Now, let's go ahead and get this connected and, walk through that process.
