For quite a while now, I have been looking for something to make macro photography easier and felt that it shouldn’t be too long before the camera manufacturers take the screen off the camera and allow us to view it anywhere wirelessly.
Well, it has happened but it isn’t one of the camera manufacturers, it is a Company called Hahnel www.hahnel.ie that specialises in photographic products.
The Hahnel Inspire uses a transmitter that slides onto the hot shoe of a Canon or Nikon camera and you can then get a live view image on the remote 3.5 inch screen up to 60 metres away. You can also focus from the remote screen, allowing much easier operation and control.
I for one welcome the fact that I no longer need to spend several minutes crouched on my knees with my head bent over trying to focus on a flower in the garden. I can now set up the camera and then retire to comfort and to a place where the sun is not reflecting on the screen and complete the shot.
Thanks Hahnel, I hope that you are well rewarded for your efforts before the camera manufacturers make this the default viewing solution on all their equipment.
