ShutterSnitch app links iPad & iPhone to your DSLR
Wirelessly review your photos on the fly
By Matthew Jeppsen | May 06, 2010
ShutterSnitch is an exciting new app for the iPhone and iPad that offers an FTP server that can interface with standard Eye-Fi cards or Canon & Nikon DSLR wireless transmitters. Link the two, and you can transfer images over wifi on the fly as you shoot, using your Apple device for review, or to notify you if an image doesn't meet a certain set of criteria.
You can define minimum specs like shutter speed or aperture within the app, and have it notify you should new photos not meet the minimums. It looks like an amazing application, and as soon as my new Eye-Fi SD card and SD>CF adapter arrive I'll be testing it out.
One of the things I'm going to try is using the Cydia jailbreak app MyWi to create an ad-hoc wireless network for the link between device and camera. In theory this will allow you to wirelessly link ShutterSnitch and your Apple device when out in the field and away from standard wifi networks. Fingers crossed...
