No computer or laptop required, no root required, only a compatible mobile device, a compatible camera, and the right USB cable. Compatible camera's and WFT boxes can also be controlled using Wi-Fi (in either Smartphone/Tablet mode or EOS Utility/PC mode).

*** DSLR Controller is NOT compatible with all devices! For a free app you can use to test compatibility, see the "Remote Release" app ( http://market.android.com/details?id=eu.chainfire.remoterelease ) ***

Requirements

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.

Not a helpful company... I have a Canon T5i and S4 cell phone. Purchased all sorts of cables and can't get it to work. Contacted company numerous times and they refuse to respond - why? At the cost of this APP you'd think they would be helpful. They aren't any busier than my 12 to 18 film & TV demanding work schedule, and I still find time to help others!

This is the best app I've found to control my camera! Great job! I tried several apps before finding this one. I will be using it daily.

Moving in the right direction but still needs work Connectivity, Live View, and almost all basic controls work well with my 60D. Occasionally, the camera locks up and no longer responds to commands. A quick restart fixes the issue but, it's a disruption that requires attention when the camera is left unused for a period of time. Unfortunately, I cannot seem to get remove manual focus adjustment to work. It would be nice to be able to use this feature for macro photography. Edit:doesn't work with the OnePlus One.
