Control your camera wirelessly with your tablet, phone or computer!
Jumping into light painting and night photography can be an intimidating process. We’ve simplified that process into one tool: the CamRanger. Now, you can confidently set up long exposures for star trails, or multiple exposures for more advanced light painting photos, all while maintaining complete control of your camera and gaining the ability to review images remotely, all from your phone, tablet, or computer.
When it comes to night and astrophotography, you can’t afford to mess up your exposure. Missing a shot can sometimes mean you won’t get another chance.
The CamRanger will allow you to maintain advanced control over your camera’s settings, all while controlling it from a phone, tablet, or computer. Use the CamRanger app to dial in your exposure, and use the larger screen of your iPhone or iPad to check composition, focus, and levels. For longer-than-normal exposures, you can perform bulb shots by either setting a specific duration for the shutter, or by tapping the shutter in the app to start and stop.
Anyone who works with light painting knows how frustrating it can be to set up a long exposure shot where you’re running back and forth, painting light on multiple surfaces, only to find out that an exposure setting wasn’t set properly, or your light painting wasn’t as precise as it needed to be. With the CamRanger connected to your camera, you can say goodbye to this frustration.
Using the CamRanger app, you can review each image after it was taken right from your phone, tablet, or computer. You can even set the CamRanger to take multiple exposures so that you can combine all of the images in post processing.
If you’re trying to get the perfect star trail photo, it often requires that you are set up in a pretty remote location. Rather than relying on your phone signal for a connection, or requiring a bluetooth connection with your camera that will drain your battery faster, the CamRanger creates its own unique WiFi for a solid connection of up to 500 feet!
Now, when you’re in a remote location setting up the perfect star trail composition, you can adjust camera settings, review images, and more, all from the comfort of your tent, vehicle, or cabin.
