January 31, 2014 – 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 wireless shooting into Lightroom. The CamRanger provides advanced remote control of the Canon or Nikon DSLR camera including changing settings, touch focus, remote live view, setting up advanced bracketing, intervalometer (time-lapse), automatic focus stacking, movie recording, as well as rating, comparing and viewing images.
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. Dave Pawlowski, lead developer, states, “We are pleased to provide the sharing feature to our customers as it will be a great help to photographers in the studio and classroom.”
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.
The CamRanger firmware update is available for no additional charge at CamRanger.com. The associated software is found at CamRanger.com. The CamRanger retails for $299.99 and is designed, developed and supported in the USA.
Alexandria, VA - June 25, 2013 - CamRanger LLC, creators of the award winning CamRanger, a device that wirelessly controls Canon and Nikon digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras, has released a new Android app for wireless control of Canon and Nikon DSLRs for photography and movie recording. The new application allows wireless tethering to Android users with their Canon or Nikon DSLR camera using the CamRanger device or allows wireless file transmission to the Android device.
“Until now, the CamRanger has been a great tool for photographers with iPads, iPhones, or Mac and Windows computers,” stated Dave Pawlowski, co-founder and co-developer of CamRanger. “We are pleased to announce that users of Android tablets and phones can now control their Digital SLR camera using the CamRanger device.”
The CamRanger is a wireless device that plugs into your Digital SLR camera to create an ad hoc wireless network that can be used without existing internet to connect a camera to an Android tablet or phone (running OS 3.2 and higher), as well as to an iPad, iPhone, or Mac or Windows computers.
