    Default iPhone Can Be Used As A Remote for the Nikon D4; iPad Too

    The Nikon D4 is an expensive DSLR camera.

    Did you know that the Nikon D4 DSLR camera can be controlled from your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad? There have been a lot of great cameras in the day, but the Nikon D4 is likely one of the better ones. It will burn a six grand hole in your pocket to get it, but it will also be likely one of the best cameras that you've ever used. The Nikon D4 has a 16.2 megapixel sensor and has amazing ISO ranges (up to 204,800). It records video in 1080p just like the iPhone 4S, but I think you will find more amazing results from the Nikon D4 simply because of the type of camera that it is.

    There are a whole lot of benefits from being able to use a camera of this caliber from a remote control. One of the most obvious - you won't cause any camera shake by pressing the button. This is an issue that can cause even the most beautiful photographs to be ruined. With a remote control like the iPhone, you will never need to touch the camera which helps you take sturdy photographs. Or, maybe you are trying to take a photograph in a tight area. If you won't fit, then put your camera right on in there and use your iPhone to take the picture.

    Using the iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad as a remote control, you can adjust the focus of whatever the camera is staring at simply by touching the screen on your iDevice that you're using as a remote when you have the interface open. You also have the ability to control camera functions including aperture (the size of the hole letting the light into the camera), ISO (the sensitivity of the image sensor), shutter speed (to control how much light is let into the photograph), and much more. The settings can all be controlled from the iDevice itself, so you won't have to adjust the settings on the camera before you walk away from it. You can start and stop video recording right from the interface as well. This gives you an amazing amount of power and versatility in photography and video recording if you're an iDevice user and want a camera that captures amazing media.

    Another feature of the remote control feature is that you can view the photographs that are currently being stored in your Nikon D4's memory. You can swipe through them and look through or delete them. This is all done wirelessly as you would expect from an iDevice. This remote feature doesn't require an application to use, so if you restore your iDevice, you will never lose your content. You can see an example of the way that the remote feature for the Nikon D4 works on the iDevice with the video below:



    The remote control feature is a pretty cool function of this camera, but as FunkySpaceMonkey reports, Amazon is already sold out of the Nikon D4 and they sold their entire pre-order inventory within the first hour that the new Nikon D4 was announced. Unfortunate, but that's life I suppose. What are your thoughts about being able to control this photography powerhouse from your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad with no applications? Share in the comments.

    no offense but it seems as though every time i see an Anthony Bouchard article it is always a plug for some product.

    This article is slightly informative but it is more or less a marketing tactic for nikon. Not once did Anthony place the name of the camera out of context, throughout the whole article he says "Nikon D4" never just "The D4" or etc.

    this site is selling out more and more everyday but its understandable, watever pays the bills to keep it up... ive found a LOT of help here

    Totally jealous. This doesn't seam like a function that needs to be held back to such premier product lines. Doubt we'll ever this in the entry level DSLRs like my Nikon 3100.

    Yes, I said Nikon 3100 and not just 3100.

    I am looking to get the successor to the D700, I hope this feature is integrated there... If not, I wait till this gets released in the D4X, so I can have ~32MP

    +1. That affiliate payment thing is a clever idea but now I have no idea what to trust/believe.

    Agreed. I need to stop getting suckered into reading them. They are all either plugs for products or (even worse) crappy fanboy articles and posts about how apple/Mac/iOS is superior to all competitors. This site is a far cry from what it once was.

    ok i see that you are attempting to insult my intelligence for using the word plug in such random context but it is actually a common figure of speech for finding the ability to promote a product within something that intends to have context to something else. example: watching a movie and a person is talking about how hungry he is and he suddenly says "I would do anything for a delicious blackforest ham footlong sub right now going for 5 dollars at subway" etc. you get the picture.

    In other words, you wrote an article about ipods and iphones because that is wat this site revolves around but instead of focusing on the iphone/ipod functionality u focused more on the functionality of the camera and promoted it within your article using its brand name and model throughout the whole article. You were focusing more on the camera than u were focusing on the ios devices functionality with the camera.

    So? I focused on why the remote function is good and what it's capable of doing. Your comment focuses on nothing but false pretenses so.. should I be pointing you out as getting plugs from trolls?

    Yeah but that's an App. The Nikon D4 can be controlled without an application.

    Yea, the D4 is definitely aimed at those shooters in need of speed (sports and action photography) as well as HDSLR video professionals. The ability to record uncompressed HD video via the HDMI out is awesome. I currently use a hacked GH2 for my video work and love it to death especially for the price point. While the D4 is still a little out of my budget, the ability to capture uncompressed HD footage for greenscreen and professional work could be game-changing, although I expect Canons successor to the Mark II to implement similar features, a similar sensor, and most likely at a cheaper price point. But, Nikon's low light performance is unmatched. Clean images at 12,000 iso is insane. Canon's $20,000 C300 (video camera) has amazing light performance, but the D4 should match or surpass that at a fraction of the cost.

    Built in features like iDevice and PC controll will allow intuitive programmers to introduce some awesome digital follow focus assistants and programs for HDSLR video shooters as well. It definitely is an exciting time to be a professional photgrapher and videographer, but as always the camera is simply a tool, and does not equate to a great finished product. The talent of the shooter, and the film-maker ultimately decide the merits of any creative or professional production.

    But, if you're a portrait, landscape, and non-action photog the increased number of pixels will be extremely beneficial. Also, I prefer nikon's glass compared to Canon, especially since they haven't changed the mount used on their camera's since the late 60's. Having 40+ years of awesome glass without the need for adapters is crazy awesome. Canon likes to force everyone to purchase their new glass by implementing new mounts every so often. Sigh....

    hmm, slightly misleading article, you need to buy a 500 WT-5 wireless add-on for the camera, and then it will work without and app. But personally, I would rather have an app do things for me than a webpage, as that is all this is, once people get to spend a bit of time with it, you with have some awesome apps out that can take advantage of it, as Eagleeye posted, DSLR Camera Remote is an awesome app that has been doing pretty much what they are showcasing here for a couple of years if not more.
