Manfrotto Digital Director – DSRL Remote & Monitor via iPad – NAB 2015

At NAB this week Manfrotto announced the Digital Director, a real-time monitoring solution for Canon and Nikon DSLR’s. Digital Director connects to the DSLR’s USB port and sends a live signal to an iPad running the Digital Director app.

But it’s more than just a monitoring solution. Users can interact with the camera and remotely change parameters. There are two main modes: Photo and Video. All camera settings can be adjusted, including ISO, aperture, shutter speed, and focus. The Interactive Focus feature allows a focus point can be set simply by touching the screen, and a digital zoom feature ensures it’s set accurately. The controls also include a histogram and audio meters, and they can be moved anywhere on the screen. Photos can be edited on in the app and then uploaded from the iPad’s camera roll.

Sorry, the Digital Director is only available compatible with the iPad Air 1, iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini.

They were smart enough to not divulge the display lag … Greer … Now with BMD VideoAssist why would any user waste/spend 500$ for this product ?

The BMD video assist looks nice. Then it occurred to me I was wanting to pay them $500 more because the monitor on the BMPC4K is like a mirror. I like where they’re going, but part of me feels a little slighted.

$50, yes.
