Wirelessly control your camera with a tablet, phone or computer!
Self-portraits often come with the frustration of running back and forth to the camera to check composition, focus, exposure, which can suck up hours of your time in a shoot. But the CamRanger removes the frustration and allows you to maintain total control of your camera settings right from your phone, tablet, or computer through a strong and reliable wireless connection.
When you’re both the photographer and the model, you don’t have the benefit of someone confirming that you’re in focus, that you’re posed properly, or that your exposure settings are just right. You’re forced into a trial-and-error photo shoot where you’re constantly running to check your camera, make an adjustment, move back into frame and hope that you’re in the correct position, rinse and repeat.
Thankfully, the CamRanger removes the back-and-forth and allows you to use both live-view in the app as well as review images immediately after they’re taken. With a larger screen, like that of an iPhone or iPad, you can make adjustments to focus to ensure your image is razor sharp, and also check your composition in real time to make sure everything in the photo is framed properly.
When you’re taking self-portraits, the last thing you want is to be tethered to your computer or tablet via a wired connection, especially if your photo requires you to be far away from your camera.
With the CamRanger, you can wirelessly connect to your camera with a range of up to 500 feet away. Open up a whole new world of self-portraits by stepping further away from your camera while maintaining a reliable connection to adjust your camera’s settings.
If there’s ever an area of self-portraits that is complex and frustrating, it’s action shots. Without a CamRanger, you’re left guessing and repeating the same action, sometimes hundreds of times, in the hopes that you timed everything perfectly and happened to get that one good shot.
Remove the guesswork and let the CamRanger do the work for you. Using the intervalometer in the CamRanger app, you can set up how many images you want taken and the time between each photo, and the CamRanger will take care of the rest. No more guessing; just set up the sequence, perform your action for the self-portrait, and then you’re done!
“The convenience of having an external monitor, and all the camera controls on my iPad, that is almost 5X larger than my camera back, is a game changer. Looking back, I wonder how I ever got along without this marvelous device. Thank you for a great product.” – Robert
“The native app offered by my camera is unreliable and does not allow full functionality. Hence I bought the new CamRanger 2. Works as advertised and the tutorials are very helpful. I am very satisfied and would recommend this product to anyone that wants a reliable means to control their camera remotely.” – Allen
“My buddies and I shoot each other on mountain bike and motorcycle jumps. Being able to operate the shutter from a phone at a distance allows us to make the most of our ride time while still taking excellent photos.” – Gordon
