More and more interesting android related camera controllers keep showing up. Manis404 has just posted a how to guide on his wireless camera controller. It basically uses an Arduino Pro mini controller, a USB host controller board, and a Bluetooth host module to create a wireless bluetooth controller for your Canon DSLR. All of the parts add up to about $50 and when you combine it with the YaNiS EOS app for your android phone, you’ll end up with a very interesting wireless controller for you Canon DSLR.

The project is still in Beta, but it looks like it has a lot of potential. If you feel up to building this little guy, check out the IO page blog. If you do take the time to build this, make sure you let them know what you’d like to see added. Beta testers are key to advancing projects like this.

I’m very interested to see how this progresses.
