Android 4.0

Unread postby pixel_dave » 24.01.2012 02:44

Hi.

will android remote work OK on Android 4.0 on a MIPS architecture Ingenic XBurst JZ4770 CPU based machine like the Novo7 ?

It might be a daft question but when I just had a go with the trial version of Helicon remote it save all of the photos to my laptop. Is there anyway they can be saved on the camera instead.

Thanks

Do you have this device?

There are 3 options for handling shots. You can either copy them to the tablet (having the same shot both on the tablet and in the camera), move to the tablet (default mode - that's why you don't see your shots in the camera) or leave in the camera without copying. You can set the desired mode in the preferences (Preferences->Canon tab ->Download images after shooting). Images can only be stored in the camera if you have memory card installed, of course.

Hi

no I don't have that device (The Novo7) but I was thinking of getting a 7" or 8" tablet for use in the field. The other one I was looking at was the Archos 80 G9 which runs on an Arm processor and Honeycomb. I'll mostly be using the tablet for taking focus stacks with a Canon 40D.

MIPS architecture most probably will not work. ARM should not make any problems. But please note that Canon 40D does not support remote Live View and is not compatible with Helicon Remote. You can check this by installing Helicon Remote on Mac or Windows.

Hi

Thanks for the reply.

Helicon remote (Trial) worked fine on my Windows 7 Netbook connected to my Canon 40D. The live view image appeared in Helicon Remote and I was happily taking stacks using the software. It's just that my netbook isn't as easy to use in the field as a tablet would be.

Thanks for the update. I am surprised 40D is fully functional. According to Canon docs Live View appeared in 50D first.

Are you saying you don't see Helicon Remote in Android market? If so - your tablet doesn't have hardware features required to run Remote.

Same here. I finally purchased an Android tablet just for using Helicon Remote and I can't download it as it says it's not compatible!!!!!

Another Android app for capturing works fine. I have a 7 inch NATPC M009S 8GB running Android ICS 4 1.6ghz processor

If you have root access and have enabled installing applications from unknown sources you can download this APK-file to your tablet and "run" it to install: http://www.heliconsoft.com/downloads/HeliconRemote.apk

Hio Stas

just so you know, the program doesn't see the camera at all. It works great on my windows netbook but not on the NATPC M009S Android Tablet running Android 4. Maybe it's a USB driver issue on the Tablet.
