I also run twin setup with 2 TX-1s running Microfunguy's stereo CHDK, and this would be perfect in split screen! We're taking about a $30 app for that niche market.
the recommended USB host cables are a bit hard to find in the UK, but I'm hoping this together with the camera standard USB cable is the right answer....
I just purchased a Toshiba Thrive because it had the full size USB port. I tried the app out on it and it works perfect for a BETA version. It is a little laggy and freezes up occasionally but that is to be expected at this state.
However, a couple things I think would make this app great for cinematographers is LIVE VIEW while recording video, which I believe should be included in the future releases. The other thing that would make this a superb app is to take the focus adjustment tool and add a slider bar that you could "Pull Focus" with, AKA, Rack Focusing. I think if you are able to control the focus in steps you should be able to control it in a fluid motion.
That is just my 2 cents on how the app could be improved. Keep up the good work though. This app is well worth the money and I cant wait to see the future versions of the app. Thanks for all of your work on it.
Canon's focus adjustment is extremely limited, only allowing you to send it three different step sizes in each direction. It's very difficult to make it smooth unless you use the smallest step size, which also results in extremely slow focus change.
Additionally, you are fighting the traffic over USB if you intend to have the live view display while recording AND try to send focus commands, which makes it even more difficult to use. Essentially you have to send focus commands only between image frames from the live view.
You can test this by using the EOS Utility. The limitations will become evident.
That one should work. However, I think you would be happier getting a flexible one rather than a block one. That way you don't have a long ridged piece sticking out of your phone that could easily be bent over. Maybe something like this one...

That one even says its for the Galaxy S phone (even though I think they are all the same)
