Android DSLR Monitor App

If you own a Canon or a Nikon DSLR, and are having problems with the focus being soft, this little $14.95 $7.99 Android DSLR monitor app may come to your rescue. This app will allow you to transform your Android phone or tablet into a video monitor large enough to achieve critical focus on whatever subject you are shooting. Seems like a small price to pay instead of spending hundreds of dollars on a separate monitor for shooting with. In addition many people have already spent too much on a smartphone (easily $600 or more) which can now serve another purpose. When thinking low-budget, now you might want to pick up that cheap Android tablet that Fry’s Electronics has been advertising to you for the past year for less than $100 and use it for your new monitor.

With a cheap accessory on top of this you can actually create a low-cost, yet still effective external monitor for your camera.

What we’re basically looking at is a phone grip, similar to something you might use in the car to hold it to the windshield. Instead of a suction cup, though, we’ve got a hotshoe mount to fix it to the top of a camera. –Read more: Turn your Android into a monitor for your DSLR with a cheap accessory and an app | Android Central
