I've actually had a copy of this for a couple of weeks now and it definately works as promised.

If you're taking stills in a studio setup, where your 5D Mk ii can be tethered to your laptop, you get a wireless live preview on your iPhone and can control basic setting and fire the shutter remotely.

In my experience, it's most useful if you're doing something like a product shot where you can make adjustments to lighting and product orientation - then snap a frame and adjust some more.

For shooting something like a live model, you need to be at the camera to frame and compose so it's not as useful.

I don't think it works in live view VIDEO mode other than to take stills, and again, given that you pretty much always want to be actively operating the camera for framing live action, I think it's a pretty specialized tool.

But a fun and very useful tool in those circumstances where it shines!

Bill, as the camera needs to be tethered to a computer (unless you are using the $900 WFT-E4A Wireless File Transmitter) what advantage does this offer over just using the Canon EOS Utility software that comes with the camera? Apart from being another cool reason to get an iPhone:-)?

I also bought this a couple of weeks ago. Used it once, does a good job and the live view video lag is very small.

Now if you could interface this directly to the camera without the need for a pc we would be getting there, would make a good secondary monitor for jib etc. Also there is no button for video recording.

Good app for what is does though.

No way to start a video recording

When I saw the LIVEVIEW support I jumped, but I should have read further - there is no way I can find to start a video recording.
AM I missing something?

Hi
when I saw this linked I jumped as well and thought how cool. Then when you realise you still have to have the camera attached to a computer to make it work I really can't see the point. If I need to use the live view on my iphone as I can't see the cameras screen is it really going to be in the situation were I can have it attached to a computer, and then if it is attached to the computer whats wrong with the software that came with the camera ? Sorry but this seems really lame why can't you just attach the iphone to the camera using an iphone lead to mini usb adapter & there software?
