p.1 #1 · DSLR Controller App: Motorola phone to 5d/MkIII USB Cable?


Hi: I've downloaded the DSLR Controller Android app but can't seem to find the right cable for attaching my Razr Maxx phone to the 5d3. I believe? it is Micro USB on one end and Mini USB on the other, both male.

Is anyone else using this app with their phone/tablet, and if so where did you source your cable from?

Genuine thanks,
Gary Tuthill

What you are looking for is called an OTG cable, for "On The Go"
It has a male micro USB on one end and a female USB on the other. You then use the cable that came with your camera with a male USB on on end and a mini-USB on the other, to connect to camera. I use one with my 5d2 to connect to my Nexus 7, running Helicon Remote. I use it to do focus stacking and difficult HDR.

You can get the OTG cables on e-bay for a few dollars.

Search on MOnoprice.com if they don't have it, they can probably make 1 for you. Very high quality product for fraction of the prices.

You can find the correct 'cable' on the devices support page on the DSLRController website, this page has both body and smartphones listed along with a description and link; to an ebay seller, for the specific cable required. The devices link is below...hope this helps, did me...Jerry.

Thanks to all. I've ordered an OTG cable, as well as an adapter kit. I actually thought OTG was a brand name, not a cable type. I saved the monoprice url as that will be useful in the future. The link from the DSLR website was broken but again, I was able to source what I needed.

Thanks,
Gary
