CamRanger Wireless Transmitter Kit with Extra Battery for Select Canon and Nikon DSLRs is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful product !!! This was easy to set up right out of the box! I think the directions need to be worded better {some is a bit confusing } but I did manage to get it going regardless. My only real complaint is I purchased mine with the extra battery. However, there is no battery charger. You charge the battery by plugging in the entire cam ranger unit to a wall outlet. This isn't real handy when you are on a long shoot and you swap out the battery with the fresh one.and can't charge the dead one because you are shooting with the cam ranger. This should be looked into.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Functional for sharing to a single device Setup is fairly simple and most people won't need to go beyond the setup guide included in the box and downloading the app on their tablet. Full documentation is rather limited and Windows software only half works. When using a single device as a controller/viewer, it's great, but I could not share on a tablet and PC at the same time or send the image from the tablet to the CamRanger software on the PC. Nothing in the full documentation covers sharing between multiple devices, so you either have to live with it or find a workaround such as Samsung's sharing app.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Be reasonable in your expectations. First I purchased the CamRanger Wireless transmitter kit. I wanted to see the quality of the product before spending more on the PT Hub and MP-360 Tripod head which are sold as an adjunct kit. I was slightly disappointed when I opened the CamRanger wireless transmitter. It did not appear to be a professional built product. However for the price, it works very well. It came with an extra battery, the charging AC-DC battery charger, and the correct cables. LIKE MOST PRODUCT MANUFACTURERS TODAY, THERE WAS A SMALL GETTING STARTED folded sheet. But to get what you paid for, go to theCamRanger,com web site and download the appropriate PDF file for your camera be in Canon or Nikon. The PDF file provides detailed instructions on how to set-up, and use the CamRanger. I printed the PDF file for future reference. The transmitter comes with a zipper pouch with a key-ring for taking the stress on the cable between the transmitter and the canera. I like the concept, and of course when outdoors in purports to protect the device from weather. The problem is, with the cables attached one cannot zipper the case because there is no pathway for the cable to exit the pouch . A oversight that is quite disappointing. In summary: this is an excellent value for the price and it works great with the Apple iPhone 6. I was satisfied to the point where I went ahead and purchased the CamRanger PT hub and MP-360 tripod head.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent I was shooting stills for a skin care company and purchased the CamRanger especially for that job (since I'm usually a cameraman not a still photographer). But this little device helped me appear very professional. Images were sent instantly to my 27" iMac, and the producer could open them up, and zoom in to see very pore on one's skin. The app displayed essential camera settings, and overall worked flawlessly. I took one star off since once in a while the connection was lost or spotty, and I had to re-boot the CamRanger to make it work again... but overall I was very pleased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CamRanger is easy to use for WiFi to iPad, iPhone or Laptop. I use the CamRanger connected to my Canon 5D MIII connected to my iPad Air. The software was easy to install. I set my camera to RAW and Large jpg because the CamRanger transfers jpg files to the iPad Air in about 1.5-2 seconds. I can tap the image in the iPad Air so clients can see the shot so adjustments can be made quickly. The iPad is a better display for clients than showing them the back of your camera.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointing for pro use with Canon 5ds but fun toy My one-star rating is unusual for me but the CamRanger is not ready for prime time. It has some great features but I would never count on it. I shoot landscapes in the field and models. I must have something that is foolproof and works with my shooting flow. CamRanger is not intuitive and the interface to my camera makes it impossible to hold and shoot. The iPad interface is difficult to quickly use and the transfer is very slow, even with small files. The construction is shoddy: the documentation even says the that Cat6 connector may not work unless it is wiggled. The plastic case is flimsy and the battery is hard to remove. There is a switch on the side that the INSTRUCTIONS say does not do anything. You don't know which switch turns in on if you are shooting. Canon, Nikon, and Apple design well-designed and intuitive. This product falls way short of their standards. Now, if you are looking for a toy, or something that will add missing functionality to your camera for time-lapse shooting or shooting wildlife remotely, this device will be fun but I would never count on it. To wrap up: The CamRanger feels like a beta test product. I can see it being designed into something really useful and it has some fun features but if you are using it to shoot in a pro environment where seconds count, it is not ready.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WHAT did I ever do without this. I can't say enough about this tool. Just buy it. If you don't like it return it, but you won't, I'm sure. I do real estate photography and this is absolutely�essential to my business. This tool saves me from walking back and forth checking or changing the camera settings or the shot that was captured. I change my settings right on my ipad and move so much quicker through the process. #Gamechanger!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great help for my photography I am a professional photographer and my clients love seeing the images instantly. I looked at CamRanger's website for video tutorials to set up going to the iPad and computer at the same time, as this is helpful in the studio. The CamRanger support team is great.
