How to Make a Cheap DIY Wireless DSLR Camera Controller
Want to control your DSLR using your Android based mobile device? don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on dedicated units? The guys from dslrfilmnoob have a great tip for you on how to convert a cheap Wireless router into a slick mobile controlling unit.
You can find the full instructions on how to update the firmware on the TP-Link TL-MR3040 Wireless unit on the dslrfilmnoob website.
The TP-Link TL-MR3040
The TP-Link TL-MR3040 cost just under $30 on Amazon so this is really a very affordable way of getting full wireless control over your DSLR camera. You will also need the DSLR Controller app (which cost another few dollars) but you still end up with a very inexpensive overall solution).
With the hacked firmware installed you can use the TP-Link MR3040 as a wifi dongle for you android device. With the DSLR Controller app installed this basically gives you a wireless monitor and controller for your Canon camera. Frame rate isn’t full speed, but the refresh rate is more than enough to make this usable. For $30 it’s a pretty darn good value.
