Basically he flashed a portable, pocket-sized router with a version of OpenWRT so that it can be connected via USB to Canon cameras. It is then possible to do a wireless connection to the router with what appears to be any Android tablet and DSLR Controller.

Nice find.
Will it work with the tablet/phone wifi connection? Could be useful out in the field. Perfect remote

I think he said it's actually more stable than with a wire. Which makes sense because the wire always falls out. I instantly ordered the router. It was $30 on Amazon.

FOund the hardware at the local store dirt cheap. What can I say. This is f..g brilliant. I can start stop from all around the house, signal goes through thick walls. I can even set focusing etc. Amazing! When filming h.264 this app works as wired. Unbelievable.

WHen it comes to raw I get it going in 24fps 1920x1080 and best monitoring when starting raw from camera. WHen I use the dslr controller rec button it goes kind of bananas and starts stops 2 or more times until it goes into regular raw recording.
When in 25fps it stops after a while. WHen recording in .MLV there,s a hang-up when stopping recording.

Don,t know if this app could be tweaked to suit raw/mlv recording better but for now it,s kickass photo/videoremote.

Thanks for sharing

Uh ML already had a app that allows you to connect the camera up to a tablet and see live view/feed...via blutooth or wifi

I used my remote shutter to record and I dont even have to be directly in front of the camera...

Yes I found it and remember now when the programmer started on this. Have you tried it? Thing with dslr controller is that it really gives all kinds of abilitys changing focus, iso, shutter, etc plus a good liveview

DSLR Controller works with the router that provides the wireless connection for cameras that don't have that hardware.

Ah... Guess there was already a post about this.

Just got the router a couple of days ago. Works BEAUTIFULLY... and I even got it to fit on my camera strap! It weighs practically nothing. Now I can do all of my recording from my phone... that is PRICELESS.
