Control your DSLR with Hyper’s iUSBportCamera

Monday, May 12th, 2014

IUSB-CAM-2TRemotely control your digital SLR using Hyper’s iUSBportCamera. Whether you’re using a Canon or Nikon DSLR, the iUSBportCamera will turn your DSLR into a wireless digital SLR.

Essentially a router, the iUSBport Camera includes the battery, USB port, and some sophisticated software that allows you to communicate wirelessly with your DSLR camera. Simply plug it in your DSLR camera and because it is a router, it makes its own WiFi network. Take your tablet or smartphone, connect to the USBportCamera’s network, then open Hyper’s free app, which is available for both Android and iOS devices.

Once you  haveopened the app, you can see the screen with multiple options, one of which is being able to control the camera. At the touch of the screen on either your smartphone or tablet, you can adjust the autofocus, change the focus, move and adjust the HDR, adjust the white balance, set the ISO, switch from video to photo, and preview photos, among others. One of the greatest things about Hyper’s iUSBportCamera is that you can preview the photo or video that you are taking while you’re taking the shots.

Hyper’s iUSBportCamera can be used in most Canon and Nikon DSLR cameras. The iUSBportCamera is offers 5 MBps transfer rate and allows up to twelve devices that can connect to it at any given time. It also comes in two different models—iUSBportCamera and iUSBportCamera 2. The only difference is that iUSBportCamera 2 can be mounted however you want, but primarily vertically compared to its predecessor, which can only be mounted horizontally. In addition, iUSBportCamera 2 has two USB ports, whereas the iUSBport Camera only has one. Aside from being able to use it on a DLSR, you can simply connect any USB storage device to the iUSBportCamera 2, turning it into a wireless storage device. This way, you and up to twelve of your friends (or other devices) can share videos and images with each other from this WiFi network. You can even connect it to an existing network that will allows you to expand its range.

If you are a podcaster that is used to going back and forth just to check the focus of your DSLR camera when you’re about to do your podcast, the iUSBportCamera will save you time and energy. By just connecting it to your Android or iOS device, you can access it from your seat and change the settings whichever way you prefer without standing up.

At just $199.95, you can already own Hyper’s iUSBportCamera, while the Hyper’s iUSBportCamera 2 is available at $299. You can find these two great devices at Hyper’s website, as well as in as Amazon and specialty photo shops. Learn more information about its specifications and the complete list of the devices compatible with these two products and see how it can help make your media streaming easier and better!

Mobile Mounts from Panavise

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

PanaviseLogoAny electronics technician will immediately recognize the name and quality of Panavise – the standard for precision vises, circuit board holders, work holding tools – the essential “third hand” for delicate tasks. It turns out that they also design and manufacture mobile electronic mounts for smartphones, GPS units, and mobile video screens. Other consumer and pro grade components include CCTV cameras and home theater components.

The system is designed for flexibility and adapts to wide format smartphones like the Galaxy Note, but is also adjustable for the much narrower iPhone 5.

We also took a look at the mount for the GoPro camera – allowing mounting on the exterior of vehicles – say at hubcap level – for exciting action shots that had not been available before. TPN Interview by Andy McCaskey, SDRNews and Daniel J. Lewis, The Audacity To Podcast.
