  1. Cool stuff Rich. Thanks for your initial review. It’s been a long wait for the CamRanger 2 and for all of us that shoot with a Sony. I’ll look forward to your future feedback on your experiences with the settings and speeding up your workflow.

  2. Thanks Rich for the preview review.
    I am a Fuji shooter with X-T3 and GFX and have ordered my CamRanger 2 a couple of weeks ago.
    The Fuji app is so bad that it is totally unusable. I am really stoked if this app works for my architectural business.
    Working with interior designers who want to preview each shot, this tool is indispensable.
    Mounting to the camera/tripod is something to ponder.
    Thanks again!

  3. @Rich I guess you could switch to the Godox X1T which has a passthrough hotshot on top. I never liked the hanging camranger option that much. I dont end up using the A/B groups for real estate anyway, and I really dont even use the power levels on the X-Pro either. I just like the way it looks. LOL It does at least 20 things I never use. Basic trigger, that's it.

  4. Just received an email announcing I was one of the lucky winners of the new model after submitting five RE shots taken with the help of the original unit. It's an absolutely indispensable bit of kit that I've used relentlessly for a few years, often seven days a week. Thanks for the concise review Rich - onwards and upwards with the new technology!

  5. Hi Rich...

    The CamRanger 2 User Guide uses strange wording regarding bracketing with Sony- "HDR bracketing is not available for Sony cameras. However, Sony provides a large number of built-in capture modes to perform bracketed captures".

    Does this mean that CamRanger 2 will do brackets, but only using Sony's (often limited) IN CAMERA parameters OR does it mean CamRanger 2 will NOT do brackets?
