Visualize before you buy

Here’s an app from Pixels.com / Fineartamerica.com that will let you preview artwork on your wall. All you need to do is print out a template and stick it on the wall you want your artwork to go. Then fire up the app, pick a work of art and aim your device at your template “target”. The app is available on Android and Apple stores. For more details on the app, here’s the link: http://pixels.com/app

Remote live view from Canon DSLR via android device

Check out this site to see if you have a compatible android device: http://dslrcontroller.com/

Even if your phone isn’t listed, check what version you have and if you can update to a compatible version. Also, you will need your phone to have USB Host capable. Once your device is good you will need an OTG (On The Go) cable to connect your device to your camera and voila remote shooting and live view.

I have a Sony Ericsson Neo V and all I needed was an OTG cable and the original USB cable that came with the cameras. Purchased and installed the software. It works on both the Canon 7D and 5DII. Although I haven’t had time to check every single feature, all the ones I use/need I checked and it all works!

Next up: I’m gonna try out the WIRELESS remote view….will put up a more detailed review and maybe a vid when I’m done testing/playing.

DSLR Controller = AWESOME if you got compatible gear

UPDATE:

Without having to root anything, I can connect the Neo V to either camera, turn on tethering, launch DSLR Controller then launch DSLR Controller on my Note 2 and get remote live view! AWESOME!

Months Ago I tried doing this with a rooted galaxy tab (GTP1000) it wouldn’t work (something to do with power on its USB port etc). However, using it to recieve the remote live view works.
