I've been checking the links within the threads here regarding the other methods, and starting to get a bit confused.
Do we have a recommendation of what is the best, cheapest, simplest, most versatile product?
And do we have a product list of compatible models of cameras and Android "monitors"? I would think excellent HD resolution would be critical.
From what I'm reading this DSLR controller seems like the best bet, relying on USB connectivity (with special connector cable?), to leave the image on the camera memory card, but be able to control and view remotely, like having a laptop on site with the camera -- correct? If so, all I need to know is if it works with very good results on Kindle Fire (original) or my Droid Bionic. If so, the total cost is the connector cable and whatever the app costs, right?
(Later) I see that DSLR Controller shows under devices that 5D2 and 60D will work. Need to find out about the output connection.
I need to check into Jim's suggestion of EOS Utility to the Kindle Fire, and the connection.
The 1Ds2 would not be supported by anything, other than wifi transmission from card slot, but no LV or controller, right? (I just read that 1DS2 doesn't work with DSLR Controller -- models need LV, and seems 7D/50D are the cut-off.)
I have not tried the DSLR Controller app but it is still in beta / pre-release and it's not compatible with many devices.
See Android device compatibility: http://dslrcontroller.com/devices.php
You will need the App ($8) and the USB cable (~$4). It's potentially a great alternative.
If I am not mistaken, this rig will not work well on my 1DS-mk3 with a paltry 230000 output and no HDMI.Even if it could be hooked up the poor res would hurt. I have tethered it to my laptop and still not able to get good focus.
