onOne Software Announces New iPhone Applications
Next-generation remote release enables photographers to use the Apple® iPhone® or iPod® Touch to control their Canon EOS DSLR camera via a WiFi enabled computer
onOne Software, Inc., a leading developer of time-saving software solutions for professional and advanced amateur photographers, today announced a new application to remotely control Canon EOS DSLR cameras using an iPhone or iPod Touch. The new DSLR Camera Remote for iPhone application allows photographers using a supported Canon EOS DSLR that is connected to a WiFi enabled computer to remotely control the settings of the camera, fire the shutter, review images, and even get a live viewfinder preview. This gives photographers a new level of freedom when shooting camera angles where it is difficult to see through the viewfinder, self-portraits, or events where multiple cameras are set up and the photographer just can't be behind them all.
Key capabilities of the DSLR Camera Remote for iPhone:
- Remotely fire a supported Canon EOS DSLR over any WiFi network
- Remotely control camera settings like shutter-speed, aperture, white-balance and more
- Preview images on an iPhone or iPod Touch
- Look through the camera's viewfinder remotely with Live View
- Built-in Intervalometer for advanced timer shooting
- Zero configuration Apple® Bonjour® networking finds the camera automatically
"We are very excited about what this application offers the photography community," said Craig Keudell, president of onOne Software. "DSLR Camera Remote for iPhone allows photographers the opportunity to get out from behind the camera and interact with their subjects while still maintaining full control of the technical details."
