Vello Extendá Wi-Fi Camera Remote Control creates an ad-hoc Wi-Fi network with a range of 164′, allowing users to connect wirelessly with a mobile device or desktop computer and make adjustments to a Canon, Nikon or Sony camera’s settings and functions via an app. This includes making changes to ISO, shutter, speed, aperture, exposure compensation and more. A Live View mode is also available for supported Sony cameras (listed here) which provides a feed of your camera’s view on your device, enabling Touch Focus and many other functions.
Sony Users Please Note: the new Sony a7R III is not listed among supported cameras.
Sony a7R III (pre-order from B&H Photo | Amazon) can shoot 10 fps with it’s mechanical shutter using studio flash for lightning-fast sequences. This enabled me to shoot moving still portraits of up to 80 frames in a single burst at 10 frames-per-second.
As a portrait photographer I’m always looking for that moment when it happens, but being able to tell the subject to go through a series of poses very quickly. This gives you the ability to capture the split-second “moments” happening in front of you at 10 frames-per-second.
Here’s a look at portraits shot at 10 fps using Profoto D2 studio strobes.
