    I'm using it with my 7D Mark II and it works very well. I usually hook the mobile device to my tripod, connects the camera and starts the app. Then I will cast the screen to a television, and I could see the image in a larger display. As long as I shoot in landscape orientation everything is perfect. But, the time I put the camera in portrait orientation, the app fills the scene horizontally and I need to rotate the mobile to see it properly (still with all on-screen controls in a horizontal orientation). Even if I could manage the mobile display somehow, I cannot rotate the TV every time I change the orientation! The app needs a thoughtful implementation in the portrait mode. As it will be most useful in a studio environment and most of the time we shoot in portrait orientation, the purpose is not served if it is useless in portrait mode. Please look into it and do something about it. Thank you.

    Great app but it would be better if you could open pics saved to the app gallery in Lightroom. Anyone know a workaround?

    I had this app for a while now. It wasn't until I really understood that the suggested wifi TP-Link TL -MR340 wireless route can change the way you shoot Real Estate. Even with the very useful instructions, you still have to be prepared to figure things out. Like configuring the router to work with the app via a firmware update. Once this is done and you have set the camera off for the first time, when you are not even in the same room. Well, I danced a little Jig, I can tell you! Five stars from me. I can now play with the flashes without returning to the camera. What a great App ! Still using the Canon 5Dii with the Nexus 9

    This is the most amazing app. I use it with my Cannon T4. All I wanted was a intervelometer, but ended up with so much more. I use it on my old Toshiba tablet and it's a great pair.
