Today, On1 Software updated their remote control app for the iPhone to support Nikon cameras. I’ve been waiting for this to be released ever since I first heard about it earlier this year when it was unveiled but only supported Canon cameras.
Of course, I immediately downloaded it…I opted for the Pro version ($19.99) which has a lot more control options than the $1.99 lite version which is basically just a remote shutter.
then you attach you camera to your computer via USB cord.
Launch the iPhone app and it should present a screen with your computer listed on it if everything is setup right. Your iPhone and the computer need to be on the same wifi network for everything to work. Click on it and then you’ll be presented with the control screen which works in either portrait or landscape mode:
Landscape mode is just basic ‘Fire’ operation. Portrait mode has a lot more options:
The settings screen (lower left hand corner icon to activate) has a number of options,
including one of the main reasons I bought the app – an intravalometer option for taking controlled shots over time.
So far, I really like the functionality the app has and the speed when running on the iPhone. Once you take a shot, you see it immediately on the iPhone screen and it saves the file (in my case, a RAW file) on the computer…there is also Live View support. You can even swipe to scroll back and forth between taken shots on the iPhone’s touch screen.
I’ve got a couple of studio shoots coming up in the next few weeks so I’ll be experimenting more with the app very soon.
