Earlier this month we featured the Manfrotto Digital Director DSLR tablet system that is priced at a whooping $500, but if your budget will not stretch that far a new system called the Camlet Mount created by IC Art might be worth more investigation and cost just a tenth of the price.
The Camlet Mount system allows you to easily mount your smartphone or tablet onto your DSLR or mirrorless camera, enabling you to then control and enhance your camera using your mobile device and compatible applications.
In the video below IC Art have used to the DSLR Controller App but other third party applications can also be used. The development team behind Camlet Mount explain a little more :
“Camlet Mount comes with two different sizes of holder, which adjust to fit different phones and tablets up to around 7″-8″. We’ve designed these holders to be easily interchangeable. Swap from a phone on one shoot to a tablet on the next – or from minute to minute!
No expensive extra monitor required! Instead you can use your mobile device to review images more clearly, change settings quicker & easier. The Camlet Mount folds down onto the camera ready for action, and retain normal use of your camera and strap.”
The Camlet Mount project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $45,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
So if you think the Camlet Mount is something your photography could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help the Camlet Mount become a reality via the link below.
