The CamRanger is an amazing tool for photographers! It can be useful for working with clients and also for educating fellow photographers. I had the opportunity to have a hands on experience using the CamRanger during my PPA Demo presentation. Images were immediately tethered to the projector and attendees were able to watch me shooting and see the resulting image right away. I am so thrilled with the responses from the students and plan to use the CamRanger at all of my live demos!"
When I saw the CamRanger and all it could do, I was severely skeptical. However, what I found was not only a flawless tether and transfer but also a multitude of options and control. I’ve had it for nearly 6 months now and it’s become such a crucial piece of gear that I’ve had to actually rely on it, both for capture and client.
When capturing video with long lenses, you really don’t want to touch the camera, so working from the iPad in “Live View” is very helpful. In a current project, I’m capturing video on a bald eagle nest with 1000mm (500mm + 2X and Canon 5D MK III), and I monitor the camera without any vibration and know the focus is spot on. I can switch between stills and video at will, all at a safe distance from the nesting birds.

Here I clamped my full frame DSLR to a 8 foot branch I had found on the race course. I fired up the CamRanger iOS App on my tablet. The CamRanger was instrumental in making this shot happen. I like to pack light and improvise on set. I try not to give the model any direction, I work with them and around them.
This photograph could of taken a lot more logistics if it wasn't for CamRanger. I was able to check framing, focus, and fire the camera from 80' feet away in 35 degree weather. The CamRanger also fires my wireless strobes with out a problem every time.
To be able to position and check the photos as I take them is as huge a benefit as the leap from film to digital!
Thanks to the team at CamRanger for all their hard work - it has made my life so much easier.
I've tried other wireless tethering products before getting hold of the CamRanger. It's user-friendly interface, range of camera compatibility, plus the unit’s small, lightweight dimensions makes it perfect for my remote-control camera platform. It is worrying enough that your subjects have the potential to destroy your gear, so not having to worry about the reliability of your wireless connection allows you to better focus on what you are there for - getting unique shots of them.
