CASE Remote manufacturer, CheeringTech, have raised more than $50,000 in a week on crowdfunding site Indiegogo for its CASE Remote Air remote control for DSLRs.
The device allows you to wirelessly control your DSLR via a smart phone, tablet or PC and is claimed to be the world’s smallest and most powerful smart camera controller, with the dimensions of 2.4” x 1.6” x 0.4” and weighing 50g.
The device can be connected to a camera’s USB, and will then generate a WiFi hotspot that will connect a smartphone or PC to your camera, allowing you to live-view your photos directly from your mobile device and remotely control the camera settings from up to 50 meters away.
It is equipped with functions such as parameter editing, HDR, focus-stacking, bulb, time-lapse, video control, and many more, so you can remotely set your camera parameters. It also enables users to wirelessly share and upload photos online. It has a battery life allowing a six hour work time and 9-hour standby time.
To mount the CASE Remote Air, you only need a hot shoe, 1/4” screw hole and clip. It works with almost all Nikon and Canon DSLRs (see chart below) and is compatible with iOS and Android systems, as well as supports both Windows and Mac Systems.
CheeringTech also offer a range of accessories for the CASE Air, such as a robotic camera mount head, tripod and relay.
It is estimated that the remotes will be available to backers in October, and currently costs $84 plus shipping.
