Hey there, This little article of yours is a life saver! Awesome really! Although I am having a little problem, hope you can help.
I have both versions of the Camranger app on my iPad and mac. But you don't specify which of the 2 we gotta use in which divice. If I use the CR share on my mac, I cannot save the images automatically, and if I do it on my iPad, I cannot control it. Also, once I select the CR app on my mac, (being already working on my iPad) it disconnects if from the iPad, which means I can't control the shoot walking around with the iPad in hand and leave the files as a "Share and download" option on my mac.

Any suggestions please??? Thank youuuuuu!!!

Sounds cool, but my kids gave me a WT-5 for Christmas and I'm struggling to get it set up to send images from my D4s to my iPad Air. I downloaded the iPad version of LR and signed in, I have an AT&T wireless router, but I've tried for two days to get the settings for the WT-5 and the iPad working. I'm hoping you can give me a hand.

Hello von, can you share from mac to iPad. they say you can but can't figure this out

Alan • 8 years ago

Unfortunately, my LR tells me that it cannot transfer the image to the chosen location. I'm guessing that it is because LR is trying this while the file is still downloading from the camera.

Benjamin Von Wong • 8 years ago

Upper menu bar,right next to the apple icon, click on "camranger"

I recently saw a press release about XtremeTether, seems it does the same as CamRanger

Benjamin Von Wong • 8 years ago

I have been using the Eye-Fi card and an app called ShutterSnitch for over a year to wirelessly tether my Nikon D90, D2x (with CF to SD adapter) and Nikon D800 to my iPad. I shoot RAW+jpeg and send the jpeg's to the iPad at jpeg medium. It takes 3-5 seconds to transfer the jpeg to the iPad. When on location I use a portable battery powered router to increase the wifi range (without the router the range is about 15-30 feet because of the camera body shielding the wifi signal). I just purchased a 16gb Eye-fi X2 pro card for $59.95 from B&H. You need the Eye-fi X2 Pro for shooting the RAW format. Photo during the Black Friday weekend. Here's the Fstoppers video for the set up of the Eye-Fi card...


You can find the router for about $60.00. Here's the video for setting up the portable battery powered router for extneded range...

The ShutterSnitch app is currently $18.99 for iPad and iPhone...

I'm so spoiled behind using the iPad as an extended viewing monitor that it's difficult to show without it.

All kinds of awesome!! As a food photographer, I really appreciate this post!!
Thank you,

Is this new? I bought Camranger 3 months ago and called them about msking it work into Lightroom snd they said they were working on making it work. Dud you let them know so they can inform everyone? I'll have to try this later today.

Benjamin Von Wong • 8 years ago

haha it's kind of a workaround I suppose but it works! :)

In "Client Mode" can your clients select, rate, star images, colour code them etc like in Lightroom? Is there any rating system at all?

Benjamin Von Wong • 8 years ago

Yes there is a rating system you can export in a text file but it doesn't sync with lightroom. It's a manual process but it works. No color coding, its a 3 star rating !

Thanks! Would be great if we could just import and sync text or xml file with Lightroom in the future :)

Spencer • 8 years ago

Are you using CamRanger's software on the iPad to view the photos wirelessly or what?

***Set you camera to transfer RAW+JPG (I personally use Fine+Small on my D800E but depending on which camera you have, your settings might be different.

You CAN choose to transfer RAW files but those 50mb files take time to transfer!!***

I'm not sure I understand this step. So what are you transferring? RAW or JPG, or both? How long does it take each file to transfer? And how many files can you shoot before you have to pause shooting to let the buffer catch up? One of the reasons I use Capture One Pro 7 is for the tethering. It's lightning fast importing tethered images and I generally don't have to wait for imports. Lightroom was such a dog it was killing my sessions by having to wait for it to import (the model would be hitting her stride and then we'd have to stop)...and this is on wired tether!!!

Benjamin Von Wong • 8 years ago

It transfers the JPGs and keeps the RAWS+ JPGS on the card that way buffer is not an issue! Takes only like 1-2 seconds and the small jpgs are transferred

James • 8 years ago

So when importing the RAWS later, how do you match them up to the jpgs that were initially transferred? Or are you basically just using the initial tether for quality control while you shoot and then creating a new folder when you import the RAWS?

Benjamin Von Wong • 8 years ago

It's just for quality control and proof of concept and to make pre-selects that you can just then filter back onto the RAWS when u import them in :) At least that's how I use it.

James • 8 years ago

Good stuff. I've been contemplating the cam ranger. I'm mostly studio so I'm wired, but I think come next spring I'll be getting outdoors a little more with the camera. Looks like a great option. Thanks Ben.
