iPhone App from onOne

New iPhone App from onOne software is coming soon… It’s exciting to see a company thinking outside the box yet again with the iPhone.  Coming to the iPhone appstore soon is a DSLR remote (Canon only at first) that will let you adjust settings, see liveview, and take shots remotely. Your camera needs to be hooked up to a laptop and your iPhone on the same wifi connection for this to work.

I can see a load of instances this would be of great use to stock shooters. There will be an introductory price of $9.99 on appstore release.

I love the way all these ‘apps’ are seen as new and exciting (don’t get me wrong people will find this useful)

But I’ve been controlloing my Nikon DSLR using my Palm OS based phone for years (and no laptop needed – it just replicates the IR remote control)

Simples!

After buying the app I actually agree with you Glenn. It would be superb if they used the iPhone OS3’s ability to plug in directly from the iPhone dock to the camera via a USB cable. However as it is, you already have the camera plugged into the laptop… Canon makes a very good tethered shooting app…. so I just use that as before. Adding the iPhone app to the chain just adds time and shutter lag.

I’m hoping the app gets better in future versions.
