In an effort to de-duplicate a lot of information, I have moved the bulk of it to the DSLR Controller website. This thread still remains the place to get support, discuss, and ask questions, though!

DSLR Controller was the first and remains the best app to fully control your Canon EOS DSLR from your Android device, through USB cable or Wi-Fi connection. No computer or laptop required, no root required, only a compatible mobile device, a compatible camera, and if connecting through USB, the right cable.

We strongly suggest you read up on the website ( http://dslrcontroller.com/ ) about what DSLR Controller can do, how it works, and how to use it, before purchasing. The website contains a wealth of information you should know before using.

Not all devices are compatible, especially if you want to use a USB connection. For a free app you can use to test compatibility, see the "Remote Release" app ( http://market.android.com/details?id....remoterelease ). If you need a refund, go to our website ( http://dslrcontroller.com/ ) and follow the instructions in the FAQ entry. We cannot process refunds through email.

Usage notes, feature lists, device compatibility lists, changelogs, FAQs, can all be found on our website: http://dslrcontroller.com/

Most questions should go to the support and discussion thread at XDA-Developers.com:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1202082

You can find links to recommended cables and adapters on the DSLR Controller website under Devices: dslrcontroller.com/devices.php. Some devices only need a generic USB OTG cable, while others need special adapters, so be sure to purchase the correct one for your model.

While we're on the topic of that devices.php page, the Galaxy Nexus comment needs updating. This is no longer true: "At the time of this writing, the Nexus firmware's USB host support is broken, you need to flash a custom kernel with fixed USB host". As I'm sure you're aware, if you have the OTA 4.0.2 update then DSLR Controller will work just fine.

A little help/guidance required.

I've got a Galaxy Nexus updated to 4.0.2 and bought a cable from eBay UK listed as "USB Host OTG Micro B Cable Adaptor for Samsung Galaxy S/SII/S2 Nokia N810 N900" (can't post the link yet due to it being my first post).



I've tried hooking up said OTG cable plus a short (approx 3 inch) mini USB B - USB A cable attached to a Canon 7D and the Remote Release (v1.10) app just comes back with 'Could not find a compatible camera'. I've tried another longer similar USB A - mini USB B cable as well as a small A-B adaptor. Same result.

Is there anything you can recommend I try? Does MTP or PTP mode for either device matter? Is there any specific setting for the phone to get this to work? Should other USB peripherals be recognised if I plug those into the phone? For instance, if I hook up a USB stick then where should this show up if the phone sees it?

Thanks. My device isn't rooted so can't try that as of now. Should any other kind of USB peripheral work without rooting? I just want to verify if its the cable or the phone thats at fault here.
