Camera remotes are nothing new. They attach to your camera either via cord or wirelessly, and they let you control the shutter, and sometimes even the settings. Camera remotes working via your smartphone are also nothing new. But the Weye Feye is. It’s not just a simple remote control. It’s a WiFi add-on that attaches to your Canon or Nikon DSLR via USB, and delivers the camera’s live view stream directly onto your smartphone’s screen. Or your tablet. Or your laptop. Or the internet right away (via your smartphone or tablet or laptop.) On top of it all, the app that comes with it lets you control almost any of your camera’s settings. Pretty neat, innit? To get an impression of how it works and what XSories, the creators of the Weye Feye have in mind that you do with it, watch the video after the break.
The Weye Feye runs on an integrated lithium polymer battery with 2000 mAh capacity, which promises a run-time of up to eight hours. Its range is 120 m, and it works with most current Canon and Nikon models. So far, it appears the Weye Feye has only been announced in Europe. Photography Blog quotes a UK retail price of GBP 199, which is slightly over US-$ 300.
