    Description

    Remote Release allows you to "remote release" your Canon EOS DSLR from your Android device with only a USB cable.

    Wi-Fi support is also present, if your camera supports Wi-Fi or you are using a go-between like the MR3040 - see further details on the DSLR Controller website ( http://dslrcontroller.com/ ) on how to setup the Wi-Fi connection.

    *** PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION ***

    *** IF YOUR DEVICE IS NOT COMPATIBLE THIS IS NOT MY OR THE SOFTWARES FAULT - YOUR PHONE IS MISSING NEEDED SOFTWARE OR HARDWARE ! ***

    Remote releasing is using a remote control to activate the shutter of the camera. This is to prevent shaking the camera, and is often used with bulb shots and/or tripods.

    This app is the little (free) brother of DSLR Controller; see http://dslrcontroller.com/ and https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.chainfire.dslrcontroller

    Remote Release also has a discussion thread on XDA-Developers.com:

    ---- Features ----

    - Activate the camera's shutter button from your phone over USB, just like using a remote release cable
    - Enable/Disable Auto-Focus *
    - Support for bulb shots (hold shutter button) *
    - Support for continuous shooting (hold shutter button) *

    * Depends on camera model. Requires a DryOS based camera. See DSLR Controller's device compatibility page ( http://dslrcontroller.com/devices.php )

    ---- Requirements ----

    - An Android device with an ARMv7-A or newer CPU architecture (virtually all 1ghz+ devices)
    - Supported Canon EOS DSLR

    When connecting over USB:
    - Not rooted: Android 3.1 or higher with USB host kernel+API support **
    - Rooted: Android 2.3.1 or higher with USB host kernel support **
    - The correct USB adapter, if applicable

    ** USB host kernel support can usually be determined by connecting a USB stick to your device, and seeing if the device recognizes it.

    ---- Devices ----

    Please see DSLR Controller's supported devices page ( http://dslrcontroller.com/devices.php ) for device compatibility information.

    ----- Usage -----

    -- Getting started --

    - Install the application.
    - Connect your camera to the phone/tablet, and turn it on. Half-press the shutter button if it was already on.
    - If a popup comes up that offers to open Remote Release, press it, and move on to "Operation" below.
    - If a popup does not come up, manually start Remote Release. A Superuser popup should appear, click allow. If this took more than a few seconds, Remote Release will complain it cannot find a camera, regardless if you have one connected or not. Exit the app, half-press the shutter button on the camera, then restart the app.
    - If a popup appears that tells you your device is not compatible, this is the end of the line for you.

    -- Operation --

    After you have connected your camera and started the app, the app will show you the following:

    - Camera model
    - Current shutter setting (depending on camera mode)
    - Current aperture setting (depending on camera mode)
    - Current ISO setting (depending on camera mode)
    - Current drive mode setting

    Below that you will see three buttons:

    - Auto-Focus button
    - Shutter button
    - Button to open DSLR Controller in the Market

    If your lens is set to Auto-Focus and you are using a DryOS based camera, you can use the Auto-Focus button to select if focusing is triggered by pressing the shutter button. By default it is, but it is not always desired. If your lens is set to Manual-Focus, this setting has no effect.

    Pressing the shutter button will take a picture on your camera. If the camera is set to bulb mode or to continuous shooting, press-and-hold the shutter button - the bulb/continuous capture will stop once you remove your finger from the screen.
