Excerpt: qDslrdashboard (android free and iPad ~$ ) on iPad and openWRT firmware with dd server on TL-MR3040 is a very good wireless remote for older Nikon dslr. B&H service as usual, perfect. Very satisfied.
Summary: I have not been this excited about something for quite a while. I have been wanting, not needing a CamRanger for a while but I could not digest the $299+ price tag. Really, I just wanted something to review photos while I am in the field and frame up shots away from the camera. I am not a super computer user but I got this router, followed the instruction on the youtube video suggested in this link: http://dslrdashboard.info/tp-link-mr3040-openwrt-flash/ and got the...

Summary: Bought to control my Nikon over wifi on my Iphone 6 plus via Dslrcontroller app ($9). So for $50 I can control my Nikon over wifi or pay $300 for a CamRanger wich is the exact same thing with custom software. Within a few minutes I was able to update the custom firmware on Dslrcontroller and get this working on iOS. It is great to have the ability to remote control my camera for this price point.
Summary: A lot of people bough this portable router to use as a "hack" to use on there DSLR and a wireless tether device, I am one of them. I am glad that I found out about this hack. After doing a lot of research about this, it seems that this is the same hardware as the Camranger that sells for $300. A lot of reviews are from Canon user. I am a Nikon user and I can confirm that this works with the D800e and the Samsung Tab Pro 8.4 tab.
Summary: I bought five of these to use as access points for PLCs and other equipment. The goods are that it's cheap, easy to set up and use, has three different modes, has a battery (which lasts about 6-8 hours in AP mode), and is small and light. The downside is you need to hook them up to a computer with an Ethernet cable the first time so you can program them (pretty standard though, so not a huge deal...but still annoying). Also, they are kind of flaky.
Summary: I am using this device as a wireless device from my Canon DSLR camera so I can control it remotely. It will have other uses when I begin traveling again. It does everything it says it will do..and more.
Summary: I bought this router to use as a remote interface for my Canon 60D camera. With a bit of geeky tweaking, it works perfectly. This $35 router replaced a $300 dedicated router based upon the same platform. It works just the way it is supposed to.

Summary: When I received this product I was impressed by the quality of the packaging. If I didn't know better, I would have thought this was an Apple product. It hooked up and worked great right out of the box. Based on the quality of the packaging, I would buy more TP-Link products because if they put this much thought into their packaging, their products must be designed well too.

Summary: As I was searching for cheaper solution than CamRanger ($300) for my D800, I found this TPlink, which look similar to what CamRanger used. After searching on Google, find this increadible free software called dslrdashboard. I only need to flash the firmware avaiable free from their website. Download the free app from Google play, and using my Samsung Galaxy S5, it works perfectly. Both Photo and Video Function is available.
