Control Your Canon DSLR with Your Android Phone Using DSLR Controller

If you’ve been dying to turn your Android phone into a remote for your Canon DSLR, today’s your lucky day. A developer who goes by “chainfire” has released a new app called “DSLR Controller“. It gives you live view and access to a whole host of camera functions through your phone, which connects to the camera through a USB host cable. Check out the demo above to see it in action. The beta version currently costs $8.56 over in the Android Market.

    That’s a really random price… $8.56? Is he from NJ?

    Seems to only work (at the moment) with very specific phones and doesn’t look like it will ever work with my 1st gen. Motorola Droid due to hardware limitations. :(

    Too bad; this would have been the first app I’d purchased.

    If someone got this working via the ipad camera connector kit I’d be in heaven..

    Can you please make this work with PENTAX cameras. You could work with http://www.pktether.com/ to make it happen. PK tether is made for windows. But could be adapted for Android with your know how. Maybe you and pktether could do development deal to make this an awesome Android and windows app.

    The price is strange in $US but it is 3.99 pounds sterling.

    I’m wondering if this will work with my Nikon D700 or D7000, perhaps even a D90 and if the App will work on the HTC Desire (1.0) phone?
