Free your Nikon or Canon camera from wired control with the CamRanger Mini wireless remote camera control transmitter and app. The Mini is approximately half the size, has a longer range, and has a faster processing speed than the original CamRanger transmitter.

Using the CamRanger Mini app, you can see a live view from your camera; toggle photo, video, and focus modes; capture images and time-lapse; zoom; modify HDR settings such as shutter speed, aperture, and ISO; and more. There's also a share mode, which allows photos and videos to be transferred to your device for editing and sharing.

The Mini can also connect to the CamRanger PT Hub and MP-360 motorized tripod head to remotely control the pan and tilt of the camera with the same CamRanger Mini app so you can create seamless panoramas.

The Mini transmitter can be fully charged in approximately 2-3 hours, and the built-in rechargeable 1800mAh lithium-ion battery lasts about 3-4 hours per charge. The CamRanger Mini app connects via 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi from up to 400' away.

Wireless Control
From the CamRanger Mini app, you can remotely control your camera, PT Hub, or MP-360 tripod head, and transfer and share images via the app, all via Wi-Fi. You can control your camera's settings and functions such as:

  • View Card Contents
  • App Settings
  • Thumbnails
  • View Image/Live Image
  • Focus, HDR, Time-Lapse
  • Camera Settings
  • Toggle Live View, Video, Focus
  • Capture Image
  • Show Gridlines (layout and color)
  • File Name
  • Exif Data
  • Histogram
  • Rotate Live View
  • Electronic Level
  • Focus Peaking
  • Controls and Workflows
Control PT Hub and MP-360 Tripod Head
Once the CamRanger Mini is connected to the PT Hub and MP-360 tripod head, a "tripod" button will appear in the CamRanger Mini app, which allows you to remotely control the pan and tilt of your camera and create seamless panoramas
