Untethered Tethering with the CamRanger

Posted on

Untethered Tethering with the CamRanger You may recall a previous post in which I talked about a solution for light-weight tethering using a tablet as an external monitor. It works very well, because it is quick to setup and carry around. But as good as it is, there still needs to be a cable [...]

What's [now going to always be] in my Camera Bag?

What's [now going to always be] in my Camera Bag? When shooting architecture, getting the proper angle sometimes requires your camera to be placed in difficult positions.

Tether on the Move Sure, the more recent LCD screens on the back of our cameras do a fairly good job at helping us estimate focus accuracy, and the histogram gives us a decent idea of our exposure. But as good as they have become, they cannot compare to looking at images up [...]
