I’m happy I bought the CamRanger Mini. I use it for creating HDR images and for focus stacking.
When you’re trying out a lighting scheme, and you’re on your own, this is invaluable. Can’t convince someone to sit with n for 100 test shots? Stand in yourself with control over every aspect of your camera, including focus. You’ll learn so much faster being able to quickly react to camera settings while standing on set. .
I recently found my old Canon XSI and connected the CamRanger Mini to it.
Working from a platypod placed on the ground was hit or miss and a chore. Not anymore!
I now have a remote screen, a way to set focus remotely, focus stacking, HDR bracketing. I stand behind the camera and frame the shot with my foot, Camranger does the rest.
As for tech help, I submitted a question on Saturday afternoon and Dave quickly replied (minutes) with the answer.
So overall: A++ My old entry level work horse receives a new heart every time I hook it up to the Camranger.
I recently purchased a CamRanger Mini after watching videos and reading reviews of the product. It’s not a new product on the market, but I may have found a function of the CamRanger Mini that may make it indispensable in my photographic journey. One of the features of the CamRanger Mini is its ability to control the focus of my Nikon D850 remotely. I can see this as a tool for any macro photographer. I have recently given the CamRanger Mini a quick test with my Tamron SP 90mm and was amazed at the fine-tuning ability of the CamRanger Mini. I also like lunar photography. One of the most frustrating issues is critical focus of a moving object at a long focal length, 600mm. It is challenging to achieve critical focus in Live View at 200% magnification as I lose the target while turning the focus ring. Being able to focus remotely could be a game changer. I have not been able to try this feature out as of yet, but I am anxious to give this a go! Price wise, it would be difficult to find another compact tool for this purpose without breaking the bank.
I’ve been getting nearsighted and it’s been a pain in the neck using distance glasses to look around and reading glasses to see the settings on my camera. It’s also gotten impossible to tell if I’ve nailed the focus on that tiny little screen, even when I enlarge it. CamRanger simplified things - no more reading glasses, and a nice big laptop screen for composition and focus. Thanks!
