Earlier this year, we told you about an accessory that allows you to use your iOS device as a trigger/timer/intervalometer for your DSLR camera. The iUSBportCAMERA accessory from HyperShop is a similar product with more features. First of all, you can use this device with iOS and Android mobile devices or your Mac or Windows computer. You slide the iUSBportCAMERA onto the hot shoe of your Canon or Nikon DSLR (compatible with most models), and after installing the appropriate app and establishing a WiFi connection, you’ll be able to control your camera in a variety of ways. You’ll be able to “wirelessly control all camera settings (ISO, aperture, shutter, white balance, etc.) directly from your mobile device.” Images will be immediately sent to your device, so you can use its bigger screen as a real-time viewfinder, and you can even refocus the camera on your desired area from the app. It works to control the camera in still-shot or video mode, too. It will also connect “to any USB flash/hard drive to wirelessly stream media to any mobile deviceStream 1080p HD movies, music, photos and transfer files between mobile device and USB.” It has a 3300mAh rechargeable Li-poly battery for up to 8 hours between charges and has 4GB of memory as an image buffer for 500+ images for continuous shooting. The iUSBportCAMERA DSLR Remote Control and Live Viewfinder for iPad, iPhone, Android, Mac, and PC is $299.95.
