I’m a junkie… It’s an addiction that I can’t put away and unfortunately costs a whole lot. I’m talking about photography and although you can’t always chase after the latest and the greatest gear, sometimes there comes along a nifty piece of hardware or software that is worth the money. I recently purchased the onOne software DSLR remote for my iPod Touch.
The beauty of this software is that it allows you remotely tigger your camera, adjust ISO, exposure, aperture and more – all from your iPod or iPhone. If your camera is capable of “Live View”, it will also stream the live image through the lens to your iPod. It sounds almost too good to be true, and at $20 for the “Pro” version, it is probably one of the cheapest camera accessories that money can buy. That being said it’s super powerful – but there is one caveat – your camera must be connected to a Windows or Mac computer that in turn is connected to a wireless network. This makes it not as handy out in the field, but still a nice tool – especially if you have a USB powered router like the Trendnet TEW-652TR Travel Router.
With that being said, I play to take it to Bonerak’ageddon this weekend in Lethbridge and should be able to upload some photos of the event to Flickr. I’ll also try livestreaming some of the gaming and Windows 7 festivities on Qik. Stay tuned.
