It can be really handy to control and monitor your camera using a remote device such as a phone or tablet. DSLR Film Noob describes one way to do that with a cheap portable router and gear you already own.
Instead of spending hundreds on a remote HDMI monitor or remote trigger, all you really need is a TP-Link TL-MR3040 wireless router, one of our favourite travel routers. Once you install the custom camera control firmware (available at the link below), you can use it with DSLR Controller, an app we've highlighted before for Canon cameras. You'll end up with a dedicated wireless router for connecting to your camera, and you'll have complete control over its settings.
You can see the whole process in the video above. Hit the link below to read more and see the step-by-step walkthrough.
