The CamRanger 2 Available for Pre-Order Now (Starts Shipping September 16th)

Originally released in 2012, the CamRanger has finally announced the CamRanger 2. Set to be released on September 16th, the wireless tethering device has added a variety of features including support for Sony and Fujifilm, an SD Card slot, and dual-band Wi-Fi. The starting price is $349.

Tethering has become a staple for many photographers, but for most that means a 15' bright, orange cord connected to a laptop. With wireless tethering, all you need is a phone or tablet to connect to your camera. This is perfect for on-location when a laptop may be a little too unwieldy, but an iPad is better suited. Now with the updated CamRanger 2, the wireless workflow might be too good to ignore.

New Features

  • Fujifilm and Sony compatibility (not available in older models)
  • Built-in SD card slot (SD/SDHC/SDXC Card compatibility)
  • 500 ft range (150 ft in original and 400 ft in mini)

  • 300 Mbps 802.11n 2.4 GHz network (60 Mbps throughput)

  • 433 Mbps 802.11ac 5 GHz network (180 Mbps throughput)

  • Approximately 5 hrs battery life (5-6 in original, 3 in mini)
  • Replaceable 3300 mAh Lithium Ion Battery (2000 mAh in original and internal 1800 mAH in mini)
  • Charge in device with USB micro: 5V 2A, or with external charger

CamRanger has also released a new app with new features including:

  • Barcode scanner workflow (iOS & Android)

I'm looking forward to reading a few reviews to see how it compares to the original one. The idea is great but.... the original one was not a robust, fast, or user friendly as I had hoped and have fallen back to just using "the orange wire".
Thanks David

I am using the CamFi Pro Plus for quite some time now and I am very satisfied. You can get it for arround $ 340,- and it is compatible with a lot of cameras. See at cam-fi.com. It is a small company. They do not seem to have a great budgett for adverticement. The app runs on PC and phone/tablet. On PC you can in addition just use it as exchange to the USB-cable and run your preferred app like lightroom or camera conrtol (Nikon). I have experiance with Nikon (D5, D850 and Z6).

I ordered the CamRanger 2 to use it with my Fuji GFX 50s.To set the item was very easy, but the product is not functioning properly from the first moment.I contacted the CamRanger support and got the feeling that the people at the CamRanger have not service orientated people.The product is working with my second camera Sony A7R3 but I didn't buy it to use with Sony.So it is very annoying to buy an expensive product but not enjoy with it even one second.I am very disappointed especially from the after sell services.
