    iPAD-Canon EOS app?

    I would like to use my iPAD to control a tethered 60D in the same way that EOS Utility can be used on a laptop to control focus (for focus stacking). I have done some searching, all the apps I have found are basic photo management/editing tools (i.e., Snapseed, PhotoGene, etc.---not what I want). Does anyone know of such a beast?

    Richard, not sure about tethering an i-Pad, but I use a laptop and connect it to my 7D using Helicon Remote. This can be downloaded from the Helicon site as an addition to Helicon Focus.
    The app can also be downloaded as an Android app onto a tablet. I downloaded the trial version which is free, but only allows tif/jgeg capture (not Raw). I have paid for the full version of Helicon Remote which I use for macro focus stacking. Don't know of any 'free' tethering software I'm afraid.

    Thanks, James. Macro focus stacking is what I would like to do, and I have been using Zerene Stacker with photos in which the focus was adjusted manually in a stepwise fashion. Pretty crude, and I was thinking that there might be an EOS Utility equivalent app for iPAD, but apparently not, at least not not yet.

    Have a guess :)

    iPAD-Canon EOS app?

    The only way I'm aware of is to tether the camera to a computer and then control the computer from the iPad.

    Here is a little but pricey item for that from what I have read on Lighting Essentials.

    Thanks, Colin & Carl! Looks like the CamRanger is what exactly what I need, although I have to think about whether I want to part with that kind of money for this fairly specialized useage.
