CamRanger’s latest update provides near-instant, wireless review of images captured by photographers and enables clients to provide real-time feedback on an iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch or Mac.

The CamRanger device is a piece of hardware, enabling full wireless tethering control and acts as a wireless file transmitter (WFT) for Canon and Nikon DSLRs from an iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and Mac computers.

The CamRanger device includes an associated free iOS app that allows for near complete wireless control of Canon or Nikon DSLR cameras, with no Internet or computer required. The recent update also includes a new rating system, comparison feature and watermarks.

CamRanger is great for wirelessly controlling your camera and viewing images. The new app update takes it a step further to help people with their photography business,” stated Dave Pawlowski, the lead developer of CamRanger.

For example, imagine the bride and groom happily smiling while the photographer snaps away. The bride’s mother is entertaining friends and family in the adjacent hall. With the new update, the photographer can transmit each photo wirelessly in about 4 seconds (for a medium JPG, longer if a RAW file), so the mother can compare and rate each image and add a note for the photographer using an iPad. While the technology readily benefits wedding photographers, wireless transmitted photography has many more applications.

The CamRanger device, combined with the iOS app, benefits event, senior or commercial photographers as well. Imagine a photo shoot where the owner of the company wants to see what photos his marketing director has decided to go with; or a marketing agency that wants to give their client an immediate opportunity to provide feedback on the pictures being taken.

Once the files are wirelessly transmitted, the recipient of the images can also compare as many as four photos at a time. Using their iPad, they can also zoom in on the image, and then rate their favorites. The photographer can also add a watermark to the images during viewing or saving.

CamRanger’s free iOS app update makes sharing Digital SLR photos simpler and easier than ever before”, stated Dave Pawlowski. “By means of advanced wireless file transfer technology, the wait for proofs has now been shortened from several weeks to about four seconds long”.

Canon: 1DX, 1D IV, 1DsIII, 5D Mark III, 5D Mark II, 7D, 6D, 60D, 50D, 40D, T4i / 650D, T3i / 600D, T2i / 550D, and XSi / 450D
