The CamRanger Wireless Transmitter for Select Canon and Nikon DSLR Cameras from CamRanger allows you to wirelessly control your digital SLR and view and share images via your mobile device. Remotely access advanced features, functions and settings, such as live view, intervalometer, bulb mode for shutter, and HDR bracketing, in addition to photo capture, movie recording, shutter speed, aperture, white balance, ISO, metering mode, drive/shooting mode, image format, focus mode (Nikon only), focus stacking, auto exposure mode (Nikon only), exposure compensation, bracketing and software autofocus toggle.

The CamRanger creates an ad-hoc Wi-Fi network to which an iOS or Android device or a Mac or Windows computer can connect. The free CamRanger iOS app then enables camera control without the need for a computer or existing Internet connection. The effective wireless range is 150'. The device is compatible with iOS 4.3 or later.

The provided USB cable charges the included rechargeable, replaceable lithium-ion battery and can also be used to power the device. Also supplied is an Ethernet cable for firmware upgrades. A protective case is included for storage and secure connection to a tripod, belt loop or other attachment point.

For a full list of compatible DSLRs, see the following:
Canon Camera Compatibility Chart
Nikon Camera Compatibility Chart

Live View
Stream live view images from the camera to your iPhone/ iPad/ iPod Touch (iOS 4.3 or later), Android device (Android 3.2 or later) or Mac OS 10.7/10.8 or Windows 7/8 computer. Double-tap screen to increase magnification. With the touch focus feature, you can tap once to focus on an area or make incremental focus adjustments. Additionally, perform focus stacking. Approximate frame rate is 8-18 fps, depending upon camera
Take and View Pictures
Wirelessly capture images in multiple drive modes. Thumbnails automatically appear on the top of your device's screen after you capture a photo. Tap a thumbnail to view the image and its histogram and associated meta-data. Images are saved to your camera's memory card and can also be transferred to your iOS device
View Full Resolution
Double-tap an image to view it in full resolution. CamRanger supports full-screen mode to maximize image size. Toggle among a variety of overlays, including AF points, highlight, shadow, grid lines and aspect ratio
Movie Recording
Start and stop video capture and view it while you record. Perform focus adjustments and touch focusing
Intervalometer and Bulb
Configure the CamRanger as an intervalometer to take time-lapse pictures. Bulb mode is supported for specific shutter speeds. There's no need for the iOS device to remain connected after the initial setup
Wirelessly View and Set Camera Properties
Control shutter speed, aperture, ISO, metering mode, metering mode, drive/shooting mode, image format, focus mode (Nikon only), auto exposure mode (Nikon only), exposure compensation and bracketing, and software autofocus toggle for switching between AF and MF.
HDR / Advanced Bracketing
Configure the CamRanger to capture a series of photos, automatically varying shutter speed, aperture or ISO. Images can then be combined via third-party post-processing software into a single exposure with greater dynamic range
View Memory Card Contents
See thumbnails of the images stored on your camera's memory card. Select photos to be permanently deleted or download them and save them in the iOS photo library
Macro Photography and Focus Stacking
Great for macro work, when the extremely short focusing distance can increase the effects of camera shake; eliminate blur in your close-ups by remotely triggering the camera's shutter, rather than pressing the shutter button. Also makes it easier to physically shoot in the awkward locations in which you commonly find yourself during macro shooting. Additionally, you can perform focus stacking to enhance depth of field (post-processing required). Focus stacking is bracketed focusing similar to HDR but designed for focal planes
Studio Photography / Client Mode
Switch to client mode to disable camera control on the iOS device. Shoot while holding the camera and simultaneously view images on your iOS device. This allows clients, directors and associates to quickly view the wirelessly-transferred shots after they're captured. The CamRanger application also includes optional watermarks for viewing or saving on the image. Additionally, there is a rating system and comparison feature for the clients during the photo shoot. When working on a Mac or Windows computer, you can instantly import and view images in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom as you shoot them
Compatibility with X-Rite's Color Calibrator
The CamRanger iOS app is compatible with X-Rite's ColorTRUE, a color calibration tool used to accurately correct color. The CamRanger app can seamlessly access the ColorTRUE profile within the app, allowing you to view images with accuracy. If you like, you can select from a number of predefined environments, such as Outdoors and Office, to display images based on ambient light with greater accuracy. Easily toggle the ColorTRUE calibration on or off for each image from within the app. X-Rite devices supported with the iOS version of ColorTRUE include ColorMunki Smile, ColorMunki Display, i1Pro 2 and i1Display Pro
Multi Camera Tethering
Available via a free update, the CamRanger enables multi camera tethering where multiple cameras (each with a CamRanger) can all wireless tether to one computer (Mac or Windows) simultaneously

    I've only begun working with this fantastic contribution to macro photography. I tend to work in a OSX /iOS environment, and there are limitations when using an iMac, but no limitations that I've found yet with iPhone 4s. I intend to add an iPad to my collection soon, and that will add yet another option when using the CamRanger.

    I use a Canon T3i with a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens for a lot of my macro work. It is just a superb lens and versatile enough to accommodate a range of shooting situations. The CamRanger is fully compatible with the T3i and with the 100mm lens. I have several other macro lenses and plan to test each of them, in turn.

    Working with the CamRanger is fairly intuitive once you've connected everything correctly and registered the device with the manufacturer. While iPhone 4s has a relatively small screen, it is certainly better than the LCD on the T3i, and it is fine for manipulating camera controls, including aperture, shutter speed, and focus.

    I didn't have as much luck working with an iMac and the CamRanger, but believe the problem was distance from Mac to device rather than any performance problem with the CamRanger.

    In a nutshell, I am thrilled with the performance of the CamRanger. It is the perfect addition for the type of photography I do.

    Reviewing this product (hard and software) is somehow twofold. On one hand it is feature rich and works flawlessly but on the other hand it feels and appears like a cheap and plastic product from China due to its flimsy housing. It reminds me on those cheap mobile phones allowing you to change their outer shells quickly. Any soap box would do better.

    Additionally I do not like the idea of hanging this unit on to a tripod outside in windy conditions while stored in its pouch. It is a no go. Assuming this already while ordering I added a "Tether Tools Rock Soild Mighty Mount 1/4-20 adapter" with an accessory cold shoe adapter to the order list hoping I could stick/glue it to the CamRanger's housing allowing to slide it into the camera's hot shoe, but this housing isn't stable enough to give the adapter a strong hold.

    For that reason you shouldn't change the battery often, otherwise you are very likely to break those tiny and flimsy hooks inside holding the housing's lower shell.

    Furthermore I don't like the idea of registering your remote unit online, i.e. iPad, iPhone, Mac etc. before you are able to use it.

    The software is feature rich and self explanatory and so is the installation process.

    The mechanical issues made me switch to iUSBportCamera which is available here as well.

      This product is good, I use it mostly for own auto-shots, portraits and naturas shots and videos. There is lag for video but that is understandable however more troublematic is the focus accuracy. Sometimes it doesn't work well and need to manually adjust. This is main con. otherwise it is great idea

        Comments about CamRanger Wireless Transmitter for Select Canon and Nikon DSLR Cameras:

        CamRanger, with the free downloadable app, enables me to adjust almost every setting on my camera remotely which means I can set the camera on a tripod in one place and control it from another on either my iPad or iPhone. Think of setting a scene, the placement of objects and/or people, the positioning or repositioning of lights. All of this without having to go back and forth from the camera to the subjects/lights to SEE the effect of the changes. Additionally, there are times when viewing through the eyepiece or camera LCD just doesn't provide sufficient feedback in detail or clarity. Being able to view the image on an iPad gives a greater assurance that I'm getting exactly what I want in the shot. After spending some time getting to know the unit, the CamRanger is reasonably ease to set up and functions as you would expect.

        Comments about CamRanger Wireless Transmitter for Select Canon and Nikon DSLR Cameras:

        I just received this a little over two weeks ago and have used it multiple times in this short time frame. It is easily controlled through your iPad or phone and also can be connected to your windows pc as well. The control capabilities are wonderful and you can literally control just about everything that you can as if you had the camera in your hand physically. The interface makes it easier than navigating menus and toggling buttons to control your dslr.

                  Three (3) Canon cameras that should work with the CamRanger. Using the CamRanger and cables as shipped only one worked. Swapping in a new USB mini cable added a second. My 6D still refuses to latch.

                  With the 66% of my Canon's that do work (70D and a 1DsIII) the CamRanger works well. The CamRanger to camera latch survives the saturated Wifi found in Office Buildings, battery life is good. Live view is particularly useful with the aging but still capable 1DsIII.

                  Used in outdoor landscape shoot to allow placing the camera high or low or in precarious positions.

                  This works and was not too difficult to connect.

                  Needs to be redesigned to integrate better with the camera systems. Hanging by a clip or lanyard is not cool and gets in the way of shooting. Redesign is in order.

                  The UI works but is clunky.

                      I never have to touch my camera again! Yeah! Massive improvement for bracket photography.
                      I love this thing! I originally tried to use this with a DELL convertible laptop/tablet. The CamRanger worked, but the software was somehow incompatible with the DELL and Windows 8.1. I wrote a review, stating my disappointment. No longer disappointed, as I gave up on trying to use a DELL convertible laptop/tablet with Windows 8.1. I now use the CamRanger on a Samsung Galaxy S3, and with a newly acquired Samsung Galaxy S Tab. CamRanger works very well with both Samsung devices! My workflow is immediately improved!
                      CamRanger support is excellent! I communicated numerous times to resolve the issues with the DELL. Timely and intelligent responses! It's great to deal with B&H and manufacturers, like CamRanger.

                      If you're using a tripod and don't want your camera to move, you need the CamRanger. Using my smart phone (or Wi-Fi device), I can totally control my camera, preview my shots, upload them to social media etc. It's not cheap, but it's worth every cent!!
                      I wish it was a little more ruggedly constructed, but I don't plan on dropping it on rocks.

                      I am using a Canon 6D but I was disappointed with the free tool (EOS Remote) provided by Canon. It's too much limited and the wifi doesn't work in video mode.
                      With the CamRanger, I can manage all parameters for pictures and movies. On top, it can be used with the timer and HDR. It's really great.
                      The manufacturing is a little bit light especially if you have to swap the battery.

                        The transfer rate and the ability to preview your shot is amazing. I wish I dont have to spend $ just to attached it to a shoe. Can they make a smaller footprint?

                        I was a little nervous about the Cam Ranger living up to the "hype" but after setting it up (which was incredibly easy) and taking a few practice shots, I was blown away by how well it worked!

                        I primarily shoot nature and wildlife so I set my gear up near the hummingbird feeder in my yard and went back into the house and was able to easily make adjustments to the camera settings and got some spectacular images! I also used it for some long exposure star and moon photos.

                        I feel certain that this product will serve me well for years to come... In fact, I am contemplating purchasing the motorized tripod head that accompanies the Cam Ranger!

                        So many products over promise and under deliver. This product works great and will save time and money. It will also save some stooping and bending with those low camera angles. I wish I had purchased this when it hit the market. Also, the customer service is good. I had some question and received a quick response via email. Thanks CamRanger and thanks B&H for your outstanding video demo no this outstanding product.

                        Comments about CamRanger Wireless Transmitter for Select Canon and Nikon DSLR Cameras:

                        So I do two primary types of photography: Architecture and portraits. 95% of my portrait work won't benefit from this tool - but I also do corporate "head shot" photography. In those instances, this tool is awesome for shooting and showing the images as I work and helping them select their favorites. That's not what I bought the tool for, but it's a huge help to me.

                        OK, so meat and potatos: I bought this so I can do architecture (indoor and outdoor) without needing to touch the camera and risk bumping it - and also for "light painting" where I use a remote flash on various objects in the shot, later blended in Photoshop. The ability to "light paint" without running back to my camera LCD to check the shot or make adjustments is unreal. Soooo helpful! Additionally, the HDR function (which just takes bracketed exposures) is also incredible helpful. I can set my mid-point exposure, then tell it how many images to capture at what sort stop-intervals. So for me, taking 5-7 images at full, one-stop intervals is so helpful.

                        The Android app (haven't used the iOS one yet) is a bit buggy at times - it's crashed a few times, or had other glitches that have caused me to close/reopen the app to continue. While annoying, it hasn't caused me to mess up or regret my decision to buy the tool. I've heard from many Cam Ranger users that the iOS app is much more stable and bug-free... I haven't had the chance to test that yet, but I wouldn't doubt it. I'm expecting future App updates to improve Android's experience as well.

                          I am glad I bought this. It saved me literal hours of wasting time walking back and forth to check the results of my lighting changing on an architecture gallery shoot.
                          The ability to show art directors and clients the shots on site to get their "ok" is worth this alone. Now there are no more complaints of "I don't like it."
                          I shoot with a Nikon D800 - the unit doesn't like the large photos. The app can't handle it. So what I do is shoot RAW+JPG/SMALL/BASIC. That way the photos show up quickly and I can work while having the RAW files saved on the card.
                          I wish it had the ability to see what the exposure is, as I shoot in manual much of the time. That's the only thing I wish I could add to this product.
                          I've met the designers/owners of the Camranger and the uses the showed opened up my world of possibilities and potential clients.
                          Highly recommended.
