Samba/SMB and HTTP SD Card Access

Images on the CamRanger 2 SD card can be accessed outside of the app either in a web browser or as a Samba share (SMB). Both options require being connected to the CamRanger 2 network.

HTTP SD Card Access

Web Viewer

Web GUI Login

Thumbnails and images saved on the CamRanger 2 SD card can be accessed using a web browser. Just like when accessing the web GUI, use a web browser to navigate to http://192.168.82.1 (or the current CamRanger IP address). Then click the “SD Card Gallery” button. Thumbnails for all the images will load and the images can be viewed and/or downloaded. Clicking on a thumbnail will enlarge that image.

SMB / Samba SD Card Access

The SD card in the CamRanger 2 can also be mounted as a read-only samba share. More simply, the SD card can be accessed like a normal drive from nearly any platform. This opens up a large number of workflows, for example, selects could be saved to the SD card where an assistant on a remote computer can quickly transfer these selects and begin processing.
