Camera Control

For camera operators that are working with multiple live cameras, managing a shoot can be challenging, especially when working alone or with a small crew. The Canon Multi-Camera Control App helps to manage these situations by supporting camera control and preview of live video for up to four cameras simultaneously.

Operators can more easily manage multi-cam shoots with the App as the settings for each camera can be viewed on an intuitive dashboard with frequently used functions easily within reach. Start/Stop Recording, Exposure, ISO/Gain, shutter, iris, focus, Custom Picture Profiles, and other important settings can be viewed and controlled in real-time. Media card status can also be monitored, allowing an operator to keep track of memory usage. The App also supports switching between media slots.

Easily Access:
 
  • Live Video Preview for Up To Four Cameras
  • Start/Stop Recording Button
  • Battery Life and Media Card Status
  • Camera Setting Dashboard
  • Active Assignable Buttons Saved on the Camera Body
