Dear Helicon Master
I have been using Helicon remote at home and it is a fine program. It is , however, very impractical to carry it and tether my laptop in the field, as I am a landscape photographer. With the advent of smart phones , mine is an Atrix 4G,we can now add apps like Chainfire 3D , which can control my Canon EOS 5D Mark II. It would be marvelous if you could create a Helicon Remote App that I can enter in my smart phone.
Best Regards

We are working on Android version of Helicon Remote. I would require USB host connection which is now available on some of the Android tablets (e.g. Acer )

Thanks for the link. We should try this converter too. I doubt it will work with phones but it is worth trying.

Sorry, Apple still do not want to allow application to use USB port!

User apernet found this "usb host adapter" : http://www.dealextreme.com/feedbacks/Br ... /sku.50774.
Will this adapter make my dream come alive ? That would be Helicon Remote on Android smart phones (not Iphone since that is not possible). Do you have any plans for that ?

Ragge

Hello Stas, I also have been using HF for a few months with great success, but have had no joy with HR, EOS 7D and Windows Vista. I have a Samsung Galaxy S II and was hoping this might work with HR but Android Market indicates the two are not compatible. Will the March android O/S upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich for Samsung Galaxy SII fix the issue?
Best wishes,
David

Yes, upgrade to Android 4.0 will help but only partially. We have not yet optimized application for small screen devices, till now it is targeted to tablets only.

What is your guess about Helicon Remote on Android 4.0 smart phones for the near future ?
Will it work with or without the usb host adapter ?
Are you able to adjust the gui to the smaller screens ?
If the above is possible, what timeframe would be realistic to expect ?

Thanks
Ragge

USB host adapter is a must, that is the only way to communicate with the camera.

As to smaller screens, we plan to do this optimization in the coming weeks.

So, when will I be able to use Helicon Remote on a smart phone (with the usb host adapter) ? Is there any phone make and model that you would recommend ?

No exact plans so far as to the phone version. My estimate - a few weeks
