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. Digital Director includes an Apple-certified iPad holder. It will be compatible with the iPad and iPad Air 2, and later on with the iPad mini as well. It will be available in June for $499. Features: Modes: Photo & Video Controls: ISO, Aperture, Shutter Speed, Focus, Histogram, & Audio Meters Includes iPad Holder Compatibility: iPad Air and Air 2 at release, iPad mini coming later 10 meter USB cable Power: Included AC adapter or 4 AA batteriesRead more
