a bit bulky
The good. It is a nice device when it works. It is a cool tethering device. I used it to connect to my ipad air during photoshoots. It was nice and easy to pull up each of my shots on my ipad.
Now the bad. Where to begin. First off I was under the impression that when a take a shot the picture will auto load to ipad and show on the screen. NOPE! After a few shots I have to walk over to my ipad and press the thumbnails so that the picture will load for the client. Next issue it he amount of shots that I can take before it glitches. If I take pictures from a previous shoot and forget to delete them off my ipad the iusbport app will glitch. When I press a thumbnail for my current shoot it will display pictures from a previous shoot. This happens after around 25 or so shots.
Next is taking portraits. If you take portraits with your camera the screen will glitch then stretch the image so much that you can only see half of the image. The only way to see you picture is to switch over to the gallery of your choice not the one inside of the app. The only pictures taken that displays properly are landscape orientated images.
Next is staying synced. Maybe I just had a bad copy but my device would frequently disconnect from my ipad. My ipad is about 10 ft from the camera and about 30 ft from my router. I have perfect signal so there should be no issues. I don't have time to reboot the device to fix it during a photoshoot so I just unmount it and put it in my bag. For having so many issues I just returned it and I'm going to use USB to tether to Lightroom.
It really works well, quality build and is fun to use. I use it with my I-Pad mini and works like a charm.
Only problem is where to hang it if you are using your flash. I am using a 1/4 male to male adapter to hook it to the bottom of the camera but then I can't use the tripod. Ordered an L bracket and will see if this works. Highly recommend this.
I initially tried on a Nikon D7100--cable that came with it did not fit, but I had one available. Only control was the shutter.
I then tried on a Nikon D800--all above applies!
The D800 is on their list of supported cameras, the D7100 is not (but the D7000 is).
So basically to use on either of my cameras I'm stuck with manual focus.
Another issue--I have an iPAD 1--the app to download for this device does not support the iPAD 1 (must have IOS 6.0 or greater). I used with my wife's iPAD 2. Oh--and they don't give you a charger (you have to us the iPad charger).
Not overly impressed but my be usable for for a copying documents using a camera stand (which was my initial application for this thing).
I may return!
Used it recently in one of friend's wedding event to display the photos on a 80" TV screen during shooting at reception, it was amazing and I could see guests were enjoying the photos :) one of my best gadgets ever!!!
