If you are connecting using Wi-Fi, virtually all 1ghz+ Android devices are supported (your camera needs Wi-Fi support, though). If you are connecting over USB, your device needs USB host support. Compatibility listed below is based on USB support. Most unlisted but recent devices will be compatible, but not all.

A more extensive and detailed list is available at our website ( http://dslrcontroller.com/ ) on the devices page. We always welcome information on devices that are not listed on our page.

For most devices you need a USB host ("OTG") cable, for some you need a special adapter. Not all devices are supported on all firmware versions. See the devices page on our web site for further details on both.

    I liked this much better than the Canon app. It was easier to use, and gave more control. Worked great when I flashed the router to connect to my 60D, and also works just as well with my 6D's builtin wireless.

    This app is awesome. I love the fact that I can connect my LG G3 to my T3i and have control over my camera. Thanks Dev. keep up the good work :)

    Its a good app for photography...not so good for video/monitoring because of the small delay in displaying the image on the tablet, making it hard to work if theres movement (maybe its the usb2 or the app itself dont know - i use it with 5D3)...also it would be nice to have manual focus from inside the app...overall a nice app.
