Great idea for an app. I tried installing it, but keep getting a Force Close on vr0.11beta. What type of usb adapter is recommended for this to work? I've got my camera cable hooked up to the sgs2 cable via a female to female connector.

First of all.. Great work. Once this is polished I will be sure to donate if that is possible... Or even better, you upload it to the market as a paid app.

Is it possible (or planned) to have the review screen come up on the SGS2 after a photo is taken and only be stored on the camera sd card with the phone only used to review the last photo taken? I am using a d7000.

V0.13 beta
V0.13 beta changes:
  • Liveview should work with D5000 (confirmed), D5100, D7000 (confirmed), d300, d300s, d700, d90
  • rewrote the part that sends commands to camera (now it's lighter to link commands, also should work better, was working on this the past day)
  • added image preview with option to select what files will be keeped (images are always saved to DCIM/dslr as they are downloaded becouse it would be to much to keep them in memory. If you press the 'Keep selected' button the images that are selected will remain and added to media gallery and the rest will be deleted. The 'Delete selected' button does the oposit. You can click on the image to get a preview of it (will invoke external program - so if you have some application that handles nef files you can preview it). I have plans to extend this view so that you can browse the files that you already have in your DCIM/DSLR folder and to browse the files on your cameras sd/cf card
  • 'Stop service' will now disable liveview if enabled, switch to camera mode if host mode is selected and switch recording media back to sdcard (please use this option before you turn off you camera or unpluge the usb)

Over weekend I will be away, so new updates only during next week.

So i downlaoded the app to test this with my d5000, everything works except for the live view. When i press it, it says "Liveview prohibition: The recording destination is the SD card". Am i to understand that this won't write to the internal memory and i must have an SD card for it to work or did i miss a setting somewhere?

EDIT: nevermind, i missed the button to change the destination. So the live view records as a video rather than a stream.

Yes, when D5000 is connected to your phone or PC to use the liveview option you must switch recording media to sdram. In liveview mode (D5000, must check others) you can only take a picture/pictures, the movie recording mode is not working when the camera is connected to phone/PC.

Yes i understand that it can't record the video, what i was saying is that the way you implemented "live View" was by recording the output to video. I noticed a countdown timer that i assume is filling up my memory card. There is no way to do it as a stream that doesn't write to the phone?

Nop, it's not filling up the memory. The liveview image is pulled from the camera and after it was displayed it is discarded.
The timer you see is actually the camera timer:
Countdown every one second starting from 3600 (one hour) ; countdown starting from thirty seconds with a rise in temperature.

It's a camera protection so that it not overheat (actualy you have the same protection when the camera is not connected to PC/phone and you enter the liveview)
