TetherMonkey is a new and exciting app that lets you remote control and trigger your compatible Canon or Nikon DSLR camera from your phone or tablet with a tethered USB OTG (USB HOST) cable. See live view, adjust shutter speed, aperture, ISO, and more! If it's possible to remote control a camera setting over USB, it's possible with TetherMonkey! Turn your phone or tablet into a DSLR controller. But hold on. There's many more useful tools and features you won't find in any other DSLR remote control app! Check out those features below:
Control your compatible Canon or Nikon DSLR camera via a tethered USB connection.
Control and adjust almost all important settings such as but not limited to Shutter Speed, Aperture, ISO, White Balance, Picture Styles, Metering Modes; precisely control focus, and more!
See a live view of what your camera sees, on your connected phone or tablet. Great for precise, critical adjustments!
With TetherMonkey, taking time lapse photos is easier than ever! You can set your camera to fire automatically at any interval or speed that you set, and set how long you want it go. It will also calculate how long a time lapse video will be, with a FPS (frames per second) that you set.
Set how many shots to take, and TetherMonkey will automatically fire your shutter that many times in a row.
See a live histogram that updates automatically.
Record video! Currently only supported on Canon cameras. We are adding movie recording for Nikon cameras soon.
Shoot in Bulb mode! Currently only supported on Canon cameras that do not have a "B" setting on mode dial, and some newer Nikon cameras.
In the pro version, you can create scripts to automatically control your camera! Create and save multiple scripts, re-edit them, and export them in .json format!
Focus Stacking Assist*
TetherMonkey has a unique Focus Stacking Assist tool, which allows you to automatically take a set number of photos with a variance in focus, so that you can stack them together later in post processing.
11 photography calculators including exposure, hyperfocal, depth of field, flash range, field of view, time lapse, aspect ratio, print size, astrophotography, cost of doing business, and regular calculator.
Need precise shooting? Use your mobile device as a live, accurate level.
Save your favorite photo equipment onto checklists sorted by gear category, so you never forget to bring them to your next photo shoot.
Lighting Diagram Creator*
Create studio lighting setup diagrams so you never forget the perfect placement of your studio strobes!
Light Meter Tool*
Turn your compatible mobile device into an ambient light meter with our light meter tool!
*Requires in-app purchase to pro version.
