A soon-to-be launched device is set to allow wireless capture, DSLR control and viewing of images using an Apple iPhone, iPad or iPod touch up to 150ft away.

The CamRanger, out next month priced £269.99, currently works with these Canon and Nikon DSLRs, according to the product’s website.

‘The CamRanger creates an ad-hoc Wi-Fi network which can then be joined by your iPad, iPhone and iPod touch,’ adds the US firm.

Features include touch focusing and interval shooting control, via the screen of a compatible iOS device.

Aperture, shutter speed, ISO, exposure compensation and HDR bracketing can also be adjusted this way.

Potential uses include macro photography, bird watching and surveillance, according to the product’s UK distributor Intro 2020.

‘With an operating range of up to 150ft, CamRanger provides a huge amount of control and flexibility over your DSLR camera and allows you to see the live view image when your camera is placed in remote locations…’ 

A downloadable iOS application will also enable users to remotely download and delete images from the camera’s memory card.

‘If you would like to view images [stills and video] in more detail, then you can zoom into the full resolution of the jpeg file – and Canon raw format images – to fully check exposure and composition.’

The CamRanger is said to measure around the same size as an iPhone.

To be compatible with CamRanger, the iOS device must be using iOS version 4.3 or later.
