p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · 5D II and Surface


I would like to use my Windows Surface Tablet and connect it to my 5D II to aid in focusing. Anyone try this, is it possible? What do I need to adjust in the 5D II? I tried without luck.

Thanks, prh

I think you need the Surface Pro (not availabel yet) for Windows 8 not the Surface for Windows RT.

It will be possible in the near future, but there is no app for it at the moment it seems (just checked it). It would certainly work on the Pro version (then you also have all your desktop applications).

remember that there are touch hybrid devices (some ultrabooks and such) from other makers that have the full windows 8 product (which is both touch using surface interface/OS and full win 8) out in the wild as we speak that support canons remote software as windows standard software. unlike mac it will do both on the right machine.

Is this possible with an iPhone or iPad? I know there is an app for Galaxy devices.... this is the only reason that I am interested in the 6D. The wifi controller looks to be like a robust solution for people who need bigger screens to work with tilt-shift lenses and macro subjects.

cheers,
bruce

yes it is possible on a ipad. but, as with anything apple there is additional hardware (pricey) involved.

yep IR is less pricey but with limits. It is proprietary in nature. the surface has superior wifi capability too, easier hardwire option too.
