There seem to be cables to connect to the Note II which allow it to be used as a USB host. Does that mean if the camera is connected that way, the smartphone look like a computer to it? If so, what app on the phone would enable me to see what is happening with the camera? Finaly, is there any chance of damaging the camera by such an arrangement?
