    HyperDrive iUSBportCAMERA2 Wireless Transmitter is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Live view for macro I have not had a chance to use this much. However, my testing shows great potential for macro/animal images by removing the human distraction. Live view lets you see what you are going to capture. I had a little trouble with the WiFi setup ( because i don't know much about WiFi) but a 2 minute call to tech support got me all fixed up. My only little nit is that the transmitter to camera cable length is too short ( it is very taunt ) and may be a problem at some point ( one inch longer would do the trick) Canon 5d III

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from satisfied I use it to shoot remotely from tight spots that I can't get to. Shooting HDR shots from places that I just ca't get my wideload into but the camera will fit. Haven't used it with ipad yet but like it with iphone. Simple

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful tool, with correct equipment I found setting up this Wireless transmitter to be incredibly easy. Once you have it connected to your camera (and your camera turned on), the app gives you options to connect to your camera. I purchased this device hoping to use it for video with my Canon 500D (T1i). However, due to limitations of my camera, the device is not able to assist in recording video. It would have been nice to know that before purchasing, but the remaining usability of the iUSBportCAMERA2 is plenty for me to be happy. I have so far used the image viewing option to show pictures on a larger screen after I have taken them with my camera. And I look forward to using the transfer capability, in order to transfer my images to a drive without a computer. A few things to note: -The wire I received with the device is a coiled wire, which contrary to what I have read in previous reviews, allows for plenty of room when connecting my camera to the device. -The device appeared to charge when I connected it to my computer via the included USB cable (my computer's usb ports deliver 5V). According to the review video it requires 10V to charge. I'm not sure whether this means my device is not charging fully, or if a 10V charger is only required if you want to charge your device faster.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I bought the unit to remote control my 5D MK III using my Ipad. I viewed the Kelby One video before I bought it, so I knew what to expect. Installation went smoothly, and it worked fine on my first try. The Manual was lacking details on using it, but I followed the instructions and charged it and installed and configured everything before connecting my camera. I found the shutter delay to be minimal, but there was some delay.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great Before I Purchased this, I watched the B&H Kelby Video on how to install and use it. It turns out to be easier, I followed the instructions in the manual and installed the software on my iphone and Ipad before connecting to my camera. This went smoothly. Instructions for using the unit are non existent, that may be a issue for some. I set up my camera on a tripod on my front porch and controlled my camera nicely from inside my house. When I went down a hall and into another room, the signal was too weak to operate it, that's as expected. I purchased the unit on a sale, and for the price, it is highly recommended. My main wish is that I was paired with the ability to control a motorized pan/tilt head like the Cam Ranger.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works with limitations This can stream your photos to a smartphone. However, it will only transfer a few photos a minute, so don't think it will keep up with a professional football game. Also, your phone has to stay on the whole time and the app doesn't work in the background, so if you switch apps, you stop the process and have to reconnect after doing something else. I found myself wishing I had a second phone to write notes and look up information. Also keep in mind that you will need a fair amount of available storage on your phone if you opt to transfer everything. This can still be a better option that using an EyeFi card in some situations. For example, the signal is stronger so transfers go faster and more smoothly that the EyeFi in noisy radio environments.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from The real problems are not in the hardware This gadget represents a great idea. For the most part, the manufacturer translated the idea into hardware and software reasonably well. I find it most useful for nature photography: It provides a live feed to my iPhone/Pad, allowing me to monitor the scene in front of the lens, and take shots away from the blind. That's *wonderful* when the weather outside is bad, and the blind is cramped. That's the good news.My biggest complaint is with the abysmal documentation. The User Manual rates a single star in my book. There are just too many items that are omitted, or not explained in sufficient detail. Even worse, the website(s) adds to the confusion - you're never really sure where you are, or how you got there. They had an opportunity to use their website to update & expand the User Manual, but they totally blew this opportunity. Firmware upgrade is a true mystery. The manual states this must be done with a USB drive connected to one of the ports. But every time I've tried the procedure, the display reports FW Ignored. Apparently there is no way to determine which firmware revision the device is using. However, the 47 version currently on the website came out after I bought this device, so it must need an upgrade.Connection to a PC or Mac is problematic also. They claim this can be done, but I've never been able to get my Mac to connect following their procedure, or any variation thereof. THe device is apparently capable of operating as a wireless access point. This could be cool, but since it's not documented, I've not tried it for fear of breaking something. Again, no documentation anywhere. I find the company's refusal to provide decent documentation troubling. In a world of YouTube how-tos for everything, these guys just sit there dumbfounded. Oh, there was one minor issue with the hardware: The USB cable provided to connect to the camera is too short for my camera. *

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Only good for photos My hope was that this product would allow me to use it with my mini as a second monitor to my Nikon D800 DSLR for video. I was very wrong. It is a really well made product that connects very easily and has a very fast wifi. The bad news is that the quality on the mini that it transmits is not good enough to check for focus, nor does the unit allow you to simultaneously use your mini and look at your lcd screen on your camera, not good for video. Also, because you are completely locked in to using your iPad/iphone you have zero use of your controls on your camera, only the use of the iUSBport app and its not good enough if you want full manual control. This unit would only be good for still images, pro photographers or videographers that are entry level.
