How-To Tuesday – Nexus 7 DSLR Monitor

The great thing about shooting video with a DSLR is that you get great looking footage. The bad thing? They are not meant to do so. One way to help me shoot video on my 5D MKIII was connecting my Nexus 7 tablet to the camera and using the app ‘DSLR Controller’. In case anyone was curious on how to connect a Nexus 7 to your DSLR rig, here is a custom mount I built myself. Build cost was about $25 (including app price). A link to everything I bought is in the video description and below
