In this video, we are going to take a look behind the scenes at how easy it is to tether your camera when you are shooting. There are a ton of benefits to doing this. The fact that you can see your scene larger is a really big plus, it is easy to compose your scene in real-time and get a good idea of what your final photo will end up looking like. It is perfect for doing self-portraits when you want to have yourself in the photo and you can’t be behind your camera at the same time. It makes the whole process so easy by allowing you to control your camera from your phone, iPad, or computer. I like working on an iPad personally because it is larger than my phone and makes getting the focus just right much easier when I’m using a manual lens and need a bigger screen to look at.
I am using the CamFi wireless tethering system – but there are a few brands out there you can research and see what works best for you. Hope you enjoy this behind the scenes look at how the CamFi works.
(BTW… I don’t usually have the iPad on the tripod – I’m usually holding it – just on the tripod so I could show it to you while filming)
