Sanho Updates iUSBport App
Sanho have updated the application for iUSBport camera control to version 1.54. The app now has a redesigned interface and for the short time I could see the App interface, they have also added a histogram.
Unfortunately for me the App crashes whenever I take an image.
This part went without a hitch.
I then proceeded to test the unit with the IOS App, the live view screen showed up perfectly and touching the screen focused the camera on the part selected, also now a focus rectangle shows exactly where the focus point is (Something that was missing in the previous version)
Taking an image seemed to work initially, with a .Nef image showing up on the film strip.
On trying to load the image for viewing to access sharpness etc, the App crashed.
I then changed the camera settings to take a raw image on the SD card and a basic small jpeg on the secondary CF slot.
On taking a photo the filmstrip showed an image with a raw.jpeg extension which on trying to load said image into the viewer the App again crashed
After restarting everything again I gave it another try and again the App crashed, so as far as I am concerned the IOS app is still unstable and unusable with my Nikon D800E.
The web App on the other hand seems to be a lot more stable and useable, with everything working as advertised. Using the settings for a small basic jpeg on the CF card, only a jpeg loads on the film strip, which can then be loaded to view in the viewer without problems..
I applaud Sanho for taking over the support of the so far ill fated CameraMator, but it seems that more testing is required before releasing applications that simply do not work correctly.
Maybe the problems are camera specific so anybody reading this who has had success with their cameras and the iUSB camera control app leave a comment, maybe it can be narrowed down to just certain cameras showing problems.
I am sure that eventually they (Sanho) will get it right as they certainly seem to be standing behind the product, but so far for me and my camera the IOS App is still unuseable.
After contacting Hyper Support, I received a very quick reply explaining the reasons for the crashes.
