-------------------------------

Hey guys!

in the last days i worked on a litle project to shoot tethered but wirelessly.. it works and is very fast and all the material costs about 50 . Its still a work in progress as I am adding more features to it, but it already works like a charm.

I have written up an instructable for those of you who want to build it themselves...

Here it is: http://www.instructables.com/id/Wireless-tethered-shooting-with-any-DSLR-camera/ (http://www.instructables.com/id/Wireless-tethered-shooting-with-any-DSLR-camera/)

please let me know what you think!

Best regards

Igor

Kudos for figuring this out! Way above my tech level, though. I bought a Camranger, more costly but within my limited tech know-how. Thanks for posting.

Thank you! :) the project can be expanded by replacing the hardware memory inside and muxh more. But i decided not to do it because this way literally everybod can make this. Its way easier than it looks. You just have to do exactly what i wrote and there is nothing you can do wrong. And in any case i am here to help who wanta to build it and has trouble. And even if that wouldnt work for any reason, hey its 50 bucks... Our gear costs many many times more... But the good thing is that it will work.. Its just very very easy even if it doesnt look so.. :) today i worked on a new script that makes this work also without intenret access and only a laptop for example.. After testing it i will put it online and update the instructable..

Wonder ifsomebody is going to build it... :)

I've used a similar solution for wireless video monitor...

Not my post, but the one that I followed. Works great, with a bit of lag.

yep, dslrcontroller is another great project made with this router.

mine is basically the same thing with just one difference:

he uses a tablet, i use a pc.

if you shoot tethered with lightroom or whatsoever program then you might want to take my solution, if for you its better to go around with the tablet for a quick preview on location then dslrcontroller is your way.. obviously liveview works on the pc too..

TP link routers and wireless usb sticks are quite universal, I've bought one wifi usb stick (9$) instead of the regular one for my onkyo network receiver (60$) to connect it to my wifi network, it worked flawlessly since :)
