Will the moderator please re-locate this if there's a more appropriate forum. Thanks.

My CamRanger arrived yesterday and was charged overnight. This morning, while eating breakfast, I read the Quick Start Guide and set it up with an iPad Retina and a D800E. Setup took only a minute or maybe two and everything went exactly according the instructions.

For anyone who is not familiar with this product, take a look at:
http://www.camranger.com/

So far, I am EXTREMELY impressed! It appears to fully meet my expectations. Images are loaded very snappily (it takes JPGs from the camera, and I have the D800 set to create 14-bit RAW + JPEG fine).

This looks as if it will be a really great "tool". I will post further comments after I've had a chance to do more than a series of initial tests on the kitchen-table.

The only capability that I haven't found (and don't know if it is even possible) is to be able to dial-in CT as the Kelvin temperature. If I can't do this, I will be only mildly disappointed. CamRanger does support the selection of CT setting, just as is available with on-camera controls. If the camera were placed in a difficult-to-access location for shots as a day progressed, it would be great to be able to measure CT at times and update the camera setting. I have such a shoot planned for mid-April.

I already like this so much that I will contact the developers to find out if the iPad application can handle multiple CamRangers on multiple cameras. Wouldn't THAT be great! There are situations in which I'd like to be able to remotely control cameras shooting stills concurrently with ones shooting stills.

I would like to use this thread to share CamRanger experiences with other users.

Pete
