| p.1 #1 · Tethering to tablet/smart phone in the field |
I do remote photography where the camera is placed in a waterproof box and then mounted somewhere, like in a tree. I use a Canon 400D usually. The problem is, once the camera is in place, it's hard to dial in the shot, because you can't simply take a shot and look at the LCD screen--you have to unmount/unhouse the camera to see how a test picture turned out.
I have an iPad and iPhone, and I'm interested in whether I could tether to my camera using an eye-fi card. My understanding is that this involves a wireless hotspot. I've seen some tutorials on the internet, but none so far have made it clear whether this sort of thing would work in places without 3G or internet access--I am working in remote spots without wireless services. Does anyone know if there is a tethering solution to connect a mobile device to an SLR like the 400D without 3G/internet access? Thanks a lot for any feedback/links.
