I know a number of you are using the DSLR Controller app and the TP-Link wireless hack I posted awhile back to control and monitor your camera. The problem is that there aren’t a lot of cheap simple ways to mount the TP-link or your phone (unless you count velcro). I try to keep an eye out for […]

You might remember this post about a wireless camera monitor/control option on kickstarter.

The RAM mount adapter works as a secure way to mount the Nexus 7 tablet, but by the time you add all of the additional parts the price ends up being around $40. If you don’t need a mounting option that’s as rugged and want to save some money this tablet grip on ebay is only about $11. The get […]
