Control your Nikon or Canon DSLR from the Digital Director for iPad Air 2 from Manfrotto. The Digital Director is an advanced tether solution comprised of three main components: a user-supplied iPad, an Apple Certified Digital Director iPad holder with a built-in micro processor, and the Digital Director App. These three components work together seamlessly to provide you with control over your camera's still and video functions right from the iPad.
The heart of the Digital Director is the iPad holder which is customized to securely fit the iPad Air 2 and features a lock to prevent accidental release. The iPad slips into the holder and the Lightning connector provides communication between the iPad and the built-in ARM Cortex A8 600MHz micro processor, and a USB cable connects the unit to the camera. The processor allows for real-time live view monitoring when shooting stills or videos, as well as fast download speeds when transferring full size JPEGs from the camera's memory card to the iPad.
Digital Director App
The intuitive iPad application controls key functions of your Nikon or Canon DSLR camera such as focus point, exposure, aperture and shutter speed.
The app provides real-time live view monitoring, manual focus control with focus peaking, and touchscreen point autofocus.
Interactive Focus can be used to select the focus point anywhere on the iPad's screen. Digital zoom magnifies the selected focus point to ensure crisp and accurate focus.
A toolbar shows histograms, exposure controls, focus controls, color temperature, the shutter button, and audio levels when shooting video. In full-screen mode the floating toolbar can be moved anywhere on the screen, and the individual control can be opened and flicked away to remove on-screen clutter.
Image star ratings allow you to sort images, and the app can organize them into albums, shoot profiles, and connection profiles.
Download full-size JPEGs to the iPad and adjust the image's exposure, contrast, and light. You can also crop and rotate the image, check the histogram and EXIF data. Once complete, you can share your edited images via FTP, Email, or on social networks directly from your iPad's camera roll.
The app allows you to choose between single shot mode or continuous mode using the large shutter button on the iPad screen.
