Tablet DSLR Monitor 

How to set it all up

Tablet DSLR Monitor. How to set it all up 

As I was considering getting a dedicated HDMI monitor, I stumbled across an INSANE deal on a Fire HD8.  Knowing that there are apps for tethering (wired) via usb, I did a little research to install the Google Play store on my Fire so that I could install the qDSLR Dashboard app. The video shows how to configure both the Fire HD and a normal Android device and the hardware/cables you need to do this. The result is live view monitoring for video and photo and if you want to, you can even record directly to your device.


Hope you enjoyed this video!
