How to connect the dslr camera to a phone or tablet for monitoring - video tutorial

Hi friends, today I will present a very useful application for photo and video enthusiasts who own a Canon DSLR camera or DSLR EOS M. Controller application allows us to connect Canon camera phone or tablet via the AC USB OTG. The image that we see on your phone or tablet is much clearer than on the camera screen, the latter being very small (3 or 3,5 inch). Manual focusing on 3 inch screen is almost impossible, especially if you use quick goals (depth of field is very narrow).
Chainfire is an Android developer community highly appreciated, he had a bold idea and put it into practice, has resulted in a more than extraordinary application for community amateur filmmakers. Amateur film makers mainly use devices for shooting Canon DSLR but their display is too small for accurate monitoring and as a field monitor price is too high for the budget available to them, DSLR Controller app is pure gold for them.
DSLR Controller allows us to visualize in real time the film but also to control camera settings: Shuter speed, aperture, ISO, focus, Picture Style, white balance and more, all this can be changed without walked to the device and without introducing soundtrack noise or motion footage. In the focus we have some functions that did not find any device, for example, you can preset two different points of focus, moving from one to another get an effect rack focus, something that can add an air pro filming us.
DSLR Controller app in Google Play Store is located fee is a commercial application but I think worth every penny, it is one of the few applications for you to pay even 2 3 or more times.
Congratulations Chainfire developer has done a tremendous job.
Why do we need:
1. application DSLR Controller
2. Android phone or tablet that supports USB OTG (Required if you root Gingerbread 2.3)
3. USB OTG cable
4. Canon DSLR camera or Canon EOS M (the future will be support for other devices, Nikon, Sony, etc.)
5. USB cable included in the box is the Canon
How to connect Canon camera to your phone or tablet?
Install the application on your phone or tablet, plug the mini USB in the camera, plug the USB cable into other USB OTG adapter and then connect the adapter to the phone or tablet USB OTG (on some tablets may have different adapter you need OTG) after connecting the phone or tablet you receive a message on the phone or tablet, click the DSLR Controller and ready to work, the phone is a live view.

  1. Cristi, I've already seen in your DSLR camera that top left and right sees slower and lower is clearly obvious. Not you? So there is no perfect lens DSLR, I thought if I 50 million on a DSLR and to see so well just throw money. If you look closely you will notice that there are two spots that slowly obvious practical than below and above it ceased altogether. And do not think that was the focus.

    It's about depth of field, I filmed with 50mm at f1.8, the "stopped" spots are called Bokeh.
    There are things you do not understand if there is video and photo enthusiast.
    When filming with a video camera everything is in focus, this is not good because you can not separate the subject from the background, look at the video and you'll see that the background is blurred over all, especially in teaching where shooting portraits.
    If I wanted to be everything in focus could just change your eye aperture to f8.0 and "coach" was happy.
    It is natural for everything to be in focus, do an experiment, put your finger in front of your eyes and focus on it, you will see his background is not in focus.

  3. I've just said it's not about the movie but if you take a picture and all the car to be sure that it will come out. Because I have a Canon camera that SX20IS so on when taking pictures, the pictures do not come out at all clear has always cessation. And I did compared to the old Canon A520 and ala ala FCE better pictures than the vb that has 20MPx SX12.1IS and A520 That has 4.0MPx. That makes it clear why the AUTO any photo no matter it's close, it's remote, everything is clear without any cessation, so capture everything on AUTO on both devices. A520 out clear pictures (color-image), and clear colors SX20IS not say it is about pure image removed so it's not like A520. Daia say. We gave him money then at that time SX20IS. I do not know dc A520 makes clear clear it, and that makes colors and images removed.

    For some it is easier to judge than to look for logical explanations. It's easier to blaspheme, to say "x is not good, ye dust" than to look for answers or get to learn physics and how it is with light, with lenses, with the operation of a camera.

  5. I was talking to Cristi as if… well when it's about something, it's always not good, you always don't follow the head-to-tail tutorial, you always have to find Adriane a little "chichita". You don't let the man at all to say his opinion, if you don't say the opinion after you say in more detail, "that we don't guess in the stars" this is your reply. And I didn't say any dust y and x is not good, it seems you didn't read the whole comment. Be gentler !! I asked for a little opinion on why this and that, if you can't, you can't. If you care only for yourself, you are not doing well, in my opinion. If someone comes and doesn't know what you're doing to her, you're going out, or you tell her that "friends here are none of your business." Be calmer, because I didn't give a damn !!! I asked for a little explanation so nothing more.

  6. Cristi, but you were somehow Nikon D5100? Stopping by Canon for shooting?

  15. Hello!
    I would also like some advice before buying a nikon or canon d5100 600d.
    The camera will be used for photo and a little for video. I would lean towards the canon, because the settings are made faster, but nikon also has a better sensor…

  16. a compact can connect via the same method I'd like to do a tutorial if possible hello
    !

    Regards Cristian. I need help though this tutorial was posted in 2012 hope to receive an answer or suggestion.
    I installed DSLR Controller from Chainfire on a tablet Alview Viva Q7 IPS screen, android 4.2.2 and I connected my camera Canon 6D. All well and good, dslr application appears on the tablet, can make settings (some) and transmits data to the camera can take pictures with the camera can shoot if I order, but surprise: see no live view on the tablet screen. I tried another cable OTG (HAMA) came out with the tablet cable and nothing! Q: Is there special OTG cable video transmission function + data or problems with the Android version, some settings missing or other bugs? I know the site Chainfire specify that not all OTG cable works with the application, but are deeply disappointed because they can not buy all cable models are produced in the world, only to find out that does not work. If you have any suggestion or pertinent explanation would be grateful, at least I know if I can use the application, that otherwise seems great, especially for those who do not have the budget for a fieldmonitor and want to contol settings for shooting in real time .
    Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience.

    • I think the problem is from the wrong implementation of the OTG function on these 'Romanian' tablets.
      To be sure you can try with another android device with OTG support.

        Thanks for the prompt response, probably from the beginning I had to buy a GOOGLE NEXUS 7,
        only that its price is 1000 -1200 lei, (ALVIEW Q7 - 460 lei) and a 7 de field monitor with HD resolution and professional functions is 1250 lei, in addition I can't make settings on the fly without noise (ISO, aperture , etc.) because it does not have a multitouch screen. In conclusion, I didn't save anything, I didn't need the tablet, and NEXUS 7 is almost at the same price as the monitor, which can be used for 9-10 hours with a powerful battery.
        Thank you, regards.

    Hello. I've installed this application, but unfortunately fail to OTG cable to connect my Kindle Fire tablet (CyanogenMod). I went into the Device ( http://dslrcontroller.com/devices.php ) from the application and I "found out" that for devices with CyanogenMod it is necessary to modify the firmware and a kernel with USB host support. Not recommend for non-tech users ”.
    In one of tuturial I noticed you used the same system to one of the applications and wanted to know if you make these changes or simply went straight to you.
    Can I make a tutorial on this topic: Does it require CyanogenMod 9 firmware and a kernel with USB host support, or is it too complicated for the "common man"? 🙂
