January release expected for DSLR Remote Pro HD for iPad  
Wednesday, January 5, 2011 | by Rob Galbraith
DSLR Camera Remote HD for Apple's iPad is almost ready to go. The first iPad-native version of the company's Canon/Nikon camera remote control and remote viewing app is nearly complete and is expected to be submitted to Apple's App Store this month, says Dan Harlacher, Senior Product Manager at onOne Software. Assuming that it breezes through the approval process quickly, it could be available for purchase before the end of the month.

The screenshots below show a beta version of the app in action. While similar to the existing DSLR Camera Remote for the iPhone and iPod touch, DSLR Camera Remote HD sports an interface that has been reworked for the iPad's 9.7 inch screen plus it incorporates a smoother gesture-based zoom, with panning, the ability to start, stop and monitor video with certain video-capable digital SLRs as well as an option to save photos to the iPad's Photos app (at up to 2048 pixels in the longest dimension).

Roll your cursor over the buttons beneath the photo to navigate.

onOne is also readying an update to DSLR Camera Remote, v1.4, for Apple's smaller iOS devices. Both it and DSLR Camera Remote HD will support the same range of Canon and Nikon digital SLRs, up to and including the EOS 60D and D7000, and will require the same DSLR Camera Remote Server companion application for Mac and Windows.

DSLR Camera Remote HD for the iPad will be US$49.99 from Apple's App Store. DSLR Camera Remote 1.4 will be a free update for licensed users of an existing DSLR Camera Remote release, or US$19.99 for a new purchase. Unlocking the video functionality will be US$9.99 (this applies only to DSLR Camera Remote; DSLR Camera Remote HD will include the video features in its US$49.99 price tag).

Update, January 7, 2011: onOne Software's Mike Wong says they're aiming for the week of January 17 to submit DSLR Camera Remote HD and DSLR Camera Remote 1.4 to Apple.
