  1. My Samsung tablet does not have OTG usb hardware support to talk to a DSLR. When a new tablet is connected to a DSLR running magic lantern, the tablet recognizes the camera, but magic lantern CRASHES trying to recognize the tablet. i'm in the market for a wifi transmitter for the 5D3 which hopefully the tablet will recognize. but how do you attach a camranger transmitter to a 5D3?

  2. I have a Samsung S4. I got two cables a) cable to the phone with female USB which connects to a cable that goes to the camera's HDMI port. BUT when I turn on the camera and the app, the app tells me it can't find the device. What am i doing wrong??

  3. so what happens when your tablet decides to run out of battery and you still want to control and record. does dslr controller work with those wifi sd cards? cuz that would suck if you could only use the cord and then you have a limited window of battery time.

  4. Is there an option to allow you to slowly zoom? I do not have steady hands, and do not like to add a slow zoom effect in post production  as it reduces the HD. Please let me know.

  5. Using the wifi on the Canon 6D and the free Canon app, you can do all that stuff wirelessly. Did you ever consider that? Or is the MkIII a must-have? I'm going to go full-frame, but debating on the model. The wifi + gps on the 6D seems pretty useful.

  6. Hi there, I am connected via my wifi but i cant seem to activate record on the 70d? Is that because I am not connected via cable? What am I doing wrong? it's really laggy as well, again is that because I am not connected via the cable ?

  7. Thanks for your video. I have a galaxy tab 4 with the dslr controller. I use a canon 600d and have all the correct cables. BUT, i have a terrible lag on the video image; it's so bad that I can hardly use it. Any suggestions to resolve this issue would be appreciated. Thanks.
