Those of you who have been taking photos for quite some time know the benefits of owning a decent digital SLR camera. Such a camera can help you take your photography game to the next level. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was an easy way to control your SLR from a distance and geotag your photos too? That’s what blueSLR offers. It’s a hardware/software bundle that enables artists and amateur photographers to take pictures with their SLRs from up to 300 feet away.
Getting blueSLR to work is pretty straightforward. Just plug the dongle into your compatible SLR, pair it with your idevice, and you are on your way towards getting more out of your SLR.
Not all cameras are compatible with this device though. blueSLR will work with:
- Nikon: D3100,D5000, D90, D7000, D2Xs, D3, D3s, D3x, D200, D300, D300S, D700
- Canon: not supported at this point but coming soon
blueSLR enables photographers to protect their photos by tagging them properly. GPS data is written in RAW mode. The device does look very compact (perfect for travel). The companion app, which is free by the way can control the camera’s focus, shutter speed, self-timer, and everything in between.
blueSLR will cost you about $150. If you have a compatible SLR, it is well worth the money.
