Turn your iPad into a field monitor ...

JARON SCHNEIDER, RESOURCE ONLINE (VIA JOEL SUPLIDO):

"Manfrotto has taken notice of the success of CamRanger and has announced a somewhat similar competitor product of their own called the Digital Director. They even went the extra step of getting the device through MFi (Made for iPad) certification through Apple.

"The digital director is designed to make shooting photos and videos much smarter. Unlike the CamRanger that relies on WiFi, the Digital Director works to give you a larger monitor using your iPad that works via an actual tethered connection. You can control your camera through a USB cable plugged into an interface with a dedicated CPU that then connects with an app on an iPad wirelessly. The app supports “remote ” (but still physically tethered) control of a Canon or Nikon DSLR."

This is a useful tool for photographers. Take a look, here.
