"D7000 Full functionality remote control"


CA
          

Hello From frosty Saskatchewan!

Ok, it's a D7000

I am looking for a remote control which will offer full or at
least most functions.

It can be wired, but prefer wireless.

Wish to avoid using Nikon Camera Control app.

Want to be able to switch from mode to mode
Want to be able to go from still to video

Would like to be able to switch focusing and metering modes

Want to be able to control bracketing for HDR use.

May be asking for too much here, but if someone can help,
GREAT.

Here is an odd look at the issue. If I were to use two types
of remotes, i.e remote shutter and remote functions then use a
Y cord USB or even a USB hub etc?

I'm also a computer geek so that kinda thing goes through my
head LMAO!

Happy shooting!

Guy

Welcome to Nikonians, Guy. Go to the search option under your login section (top right on your screen) and enter wireless remote. You'll find several sections relating to that. Good luck.

Thanks Michael, but I cannot accept credit for finding this gizmo! I recently received an e-mail from another Nikonian who enthused over its capabilities - having seen one used with an iPad Retina. At the time, he was also awaiting delivery!

Let's keep our fingers crossed that the Camranger meets our expectations...

FWIW, I'll be using it with a D800 and an iPad Retina. I'm quite keen to find out how long it takes to load+display shots from the camera. I assume that I'll have to create in-camera JPGs as well as the RAW files that I need.

Pete

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback. This is great!

Had a look at the camranger site and it does exactly what I want.

Also found this http://www.cameramator.com/

Not an Ipad user.... yet :)

Both products are for Apple hardware :(



Camranger is working on a windows version apparently.

May not be a bad idea to produce an android version too :)

You guys are GREAT!

Guy

I thought I might throw in a wired solution just to round this out for those reading the thread.

There's Helicon Remote from Helicon Software, http://www.heliconsoft.com/heliconremote.html , which you can check out at the referenced website for the details.

Works with Android and iOS devices, as well as PC laptops and (I think) Mac laptops. The major hassle, being USB, is that you're likely going to be limited to 15 feet standoff from the camera. Apparently, they're working on some wireless extensions to the product, but details (and additional hardware required) are very sketchy at the moment.

WOW, Thanks go out to jvmorris for the helicon info. I had no idea you could do this focus stacking technique!

Just to clarify, you are not limited to 15ft with USB. There are "active" / powered USB extensions out there. One can also opt for using a powered usb hub. The USB 3.0 technology theoretically allows for up to 18 meters with a powered hub.

Now, let's get super techie

http://www.gizmag.com/iogear-wireless-4-port-usb-sharing-station/19471/

How about using Using USB over WiFi? With the right antenna and WiFi booster you can now do WiFi over 5 miles with ease. I have heard of unconfirmed reports that 125 miles has been achieved.

So the issue becomes academic at this juncture. I guess technically you could control your camera from anywhere in the world with a cell phone and/or the Internet.

Obviously going way off topic here. But we photogs are known for DIY solutions!

Thank again to everyone. Where there is a will, there is a way!

Guy

Hi, guy!

Yes, looks like all the solutions I've seen involve Wi-Fi tunneling the USB protocol. Just got a reply on the Helicon Remote forum saying that the Wi-Fi version, when it becomes available, can even be implemented by hard-wiring one smartphone to the camera and then using a second smartphone remotely (i.e., wireless) to do the controlling. I can live with that!

I think the likely problem with trying to extend beyond, say, 10 meters (wired or wireless) is going to be a matter of latency. It's not going to be that big a deal with controlling autofocus and shutter release or even remotely changing camera settings. It probably wouldn't present that great a problem downloading a captured image, really just a file transfer. However (and this is of interest to me for some of the uses I've got in mind), Live View and video might present a real problem. I suppose we'll find out when we find out.
