The CamRanger helps with my work in several ways. First and foremost the ability to see images on a laptop or iPad is crucial to my work. Examining an image on the back of the camera does not give me enough information, seeing the image larger helps me to evaluate the composition and examine the details. Another great benefit is the ability to fire the camera from a distance. This is handy when the camera is mounted high on a tripod or when I’m adjusting lighting that is not close to the camera - thus reducing my need to waste time running back and forth to take test shots. All in all the CamRanger has changed the way I shoot on location. My clients love it as well!
As an architectural photographer I was looking for ways to remotely trigger and view the camera shots on one device. I used to do this with a (wired) tethered laptop. But sometimes I’m away of my camera by more then 50 meters, because I light my projects at dawn and dusk. Constantly walking back to the laptop to review the shots is time consuming. It also needs a second tripod with the laptop on it, next to the camera tripod. With CamRanger, I could get rid of the second tripod and the laptop on it. So it saves weight and a lot of hassle in the first place. The device and the WiFi network proved to be really reliable, and because it’s so small it easily attaches to the camera tripod. Changing camera settings with the app is fast and intuitive, and the good thing is also that the app is updated every once in a while.
All together I’m totally satisfied with my CamRanger.
We used the CamRanger for the first time last night shooting the interior of a 41 ft yacht. It worked perfectly! Perfect for shooting small spaces where you cannot get your eye behind the camera. The client was also blown away by the image on the iPad of his boat.
