samrter DSLR Flash-Dock hotshoe socket

A smarter DSLR

There when you need it

What happens when you marry an iPhone or SmartPhone with a DSLR?
It turns out, your iPhone or your smartphone could do many things for you on the go. In fact they were built for that, and guess what. There is a socket on your DSLR that you don’t always use. It’s called the “HotShoe” socket, or cobra flash socket. Flash-Dock holds your SmartPhone into the hotshoe socket. Your SmartPhone is right there to do 2 things your DSLR cannot do: Geotagging and Sharing pictures.

 

 


 

Sharing pictures

Your DSLR with a 3G/4G connection !

What if you could share a High Quality picture by E-mail, SMS or via cloud services like iCloud or DropBox? That is something you’ve done for years with your camera phone but never did with your DSLR.

Have you heard about the EyeFi SD Cards? EyeFi cards are SD Cards that store your pictures and send them to your SmartPhone through its built-in WIFI chip. Once on the phone, you can send the pictures through the 3G/4G networks.

Geotagging pictures with GPX files.

Your smartphone has a built-in GPS and most DSLR don’t.

Did you know that your smartphone could record your tracks into a file called GPX file?
That file is then read by iPhoto, Aperture, Lightroom, Photoshop Elements, Picasa and most photo library softwares.
What these softwares do is merging this GPS data with the metadata of pictures you have taken during the photoshoot.

It’s that simple! … and it’s FREE
Your smartphone works for you while you take pictures.

 


 

Geotaging pictures with bluetooth

Geotagging pictures with bluetooth.

Some Add-on devices like BlueSLR plug into the DSLR GPS connector.

Since SmartPhones also have a bluetooth connection, they can send in real time location informations to your camera that, in turns will geotag your pictures.

It works the same way as if you had a GPS receiver plugged into your DSLR, only cheaper.
And unlike geotaging using .gpx files, there is no need to do anything in your picture library software as all pictures are automatically saved with GPS informations.

5D Mark II assistant.

Helping the low light AF issue.

DSLR cameras like the Canon 5D Mark II, low light autofocus can be challenging.

Use your smartphone’s flash to help your camera autofocusing or simply use it as a softer flash than traditional cobra flashes.

“AF works great under almost all conditions, except light so dim that I can’t read, under which condition it gets slower. There is no AF Illuminator”
Ken Rockwell

If I damage my SmartPhone or DSLR while using my Flash-Dock, will you pay for repairs?
We cannot predict the circumstances in which you may damage your DSLR or SmartPhone , so Pocketdemo cannot be held responsible for any damage that may occur.
However, we can tell you this. The Flash-Dock has been designed to hold your SmartPhone as firmly as possible.

Does the Flash-Dock hold my smartPhone strong enough so it won’t fall when I hold it downwards?
Yes and we’ve worked hard to make sure that your SmartPhone is well held in place and does not move even if you swing your DSLR around. We will soon post a video to show how resistant the Flash-Dock is.

Does the Flash-Dock communicate with my DSLR?
No. The Flash-Dock is an accessory that holds your SmartPhone into the HotShoe socket of your DSLR.
Your Smartphone communicates with your DSLR through wireless technologies like Bluetooth and Wifi.

If my DSLR falls onto the Flash-Dock, will it damage my DSLR?
We cannot predict what will happen to your DSLR if it falls, but we can tell you this.
If your DSLR falls onto the Flash-Dock, we’ve designed it so the Flash-Dock will brake first and not damage the hotshoe socket of your DSLR.
And bare in mind that Pocketdemo cannot be held responsible for the damages that could occur to your SmartPhone or DSLR while using the Flash-Dock.

Does the Flash-Dock come all equipped with Wifi SD Card, bluetooth dongle and iOS or Android apps?
No. The Flash-Dock is only an accessory. You must purchase the EyeFi Cards, BlueSLR dongle and apps to benefits from all the features the Flash-Dock can bring to you.

How do I synchronize my SmartPhone with the EyeFi card?
How do I synchronize my SmartPhone with my BlueSLR Bluetooth dongle?
My level app tells me that my camera isn’t horizontal but a real level tells me it is?
That is because the accelerometer of your Phone isn’t calibrated.
Nearly all level programs have a calibration feature. Position your phone on a flat surface that you’ve tested with a real level and calibrate it.

My Canon 5D Mark II cannot focus in low light even when using the flash of my camera phone. Why?
Remember that LED flash lights on camera phones are not as powerful as real cobra-flash. Generally, they will light objects up to 10-15 feet away, but beyond this, they may not bring enough light for the camera to autofocus.
