USB tethering to iPad Air 2

Post by carlmueller75 » 13.01.2017 18:17

Helicon Remote works great with my Nikon D800e and my iMac using the usb interface cable.
I attached my D800e usb cable to my Apple Lightning-to-Camera adapter, then to the iPad Air 2.

When turning on the camera, the iPad immediately goes to the Photo Import app, so I know it sees the camera.
When I bring up Helicon Remote, it says "Camera is not connected".

I contacted Apple support and they informed me that as long as I am using the Lightning-to-Camera adapter, the
problem appears to be on the application side and to contact Helicon.

Do I really HAVE to use Wifi to use this app ?

My alternative to to bring my light weight laptop into the field to do my mushroom photography.
I really want to be able to use the iPad for focus stacking control and leave the photos on the camera card.

Never mind....
I found an older post with the reply that HR will NOT work with usb on an IPAD, only wifi (if your camera has wifi). :cry:
USB and wifi both work on android tablets.
