onOne Softwar has announced a new application to remotely control
Canon EOS DSLR cameras using an iPhone or iPod touch. The new DSLR
Camera Remote for iPhone application allows photographers using a
supported Canon EOS DSLR that’s connected to a WiFi enabled computer
to remotely control the settings of the camera, fire the shutter,
review images, and even get a live viewfinder preview.
DSLR Camera Remote for iPhone comes in two versions — the
Professional edition, which is available for US$19.99 with a limited
time introductory price of $9.99, and the Lite edition, available for
$1.99. The DSLR Camera Remote for iPhone may be purchased immediately
from the Apple App Store. After purchasing either edition, users will
need to download a free application that runs on their supported Mac
or Windows computer. This free application is required to communicate
between the iPhone and the supported Canon EOS DSLR, connected via
USB or Firewire to a WiFi enabled computer.
There are no trial or demo versions of the DSLR Camera Remote for
iPhone application. For a full list of system requirements and
supported cameras visit http://www.onOnesoftware.com/iPhone
Initially, in version 1.0, the DSLR Camera Remote for iPhone
application will only support selected Canon EOS DSLR cameras.
However, an updated version that adds support for a wide variety of
Nikon DSLR cameras is currently in development and is planned to be
released as an update to the DSLR Camera Remote for iPhone
