So it looks like you can trigger video start and stop from an Iphone or other browser equipped device connected to the Canon WFT-E5, waiting for confirmation. This will be a real boon for Steadicam and polecam users. You should also be able to control all other camera functions too.

That is my understanding of the WFT-E4. There is a full TCP/IP stack and httpd in it; I would love to get one to see about writing cgi-bin scripts.

curious?

Has anyone purchased and tested this? (I ask because I can't find any information about it that specifically states you can start/stop video).
