eyefimobi

Eye-Fi has offered the ability to wirelessly transmits photos from a camera to another device for quite a while now, but there was a downside: you were required to connect to a Wi-Fi hotspot to do so (with the exception of the Eye-Fi X2). This presented a challenge to photographers shooting on location where a Wi-Fi hotspot may not have been readily available.

Eye-Fi has come forth with their new “Eye-Fi Mobi” product, which streamlines the process of sending images to a mobile device.

Here’s another option for DSLR-toting photogs who want to control their gear wirelessly from a distance without spending a fortune. It doesn’t have the range of the CamRanger or the ability to send over a live view like, say, the built-in wireless on the Canon 6D; however, it’s less than one sixth the price of the first, and you won’t have to upgrade your camera to get it.

It’s the Satechi Bluetooth Smart Trigger, and it comes in three versions that are compatible with a range of Canon and Nikon DSLRs (plus a couple of Pentax options) for only $45.

CamRanger: Wirelessly Control Canon and Nikon DSLRs with an iOS Device

Wireless adapters for digital cameras can be very pricey accessories, especially when you’re dealing with high-end DSLRs. Manufacturers can squeeze more money out of those who pay thousands for a camera by charging hundreds for an adapter, even though a cheaper one could work just fine. What’s more, the adapters are often designed specifically for certain cameras, making them useless if you change models or makes.

CamRanger is a new device that’s designed to solve all those inconveniences. It’s a standalone wireless adapter that connects to Canon and Nikon DSLRs using an ordinary USB cable.
