External controller for menu

PostFri Sep 21, 2012 7:38 pm

You know what would be awesome? To control the camera's menu wirelessly (or wired actually) via an iPhone app. Bluetooth should do it if not a wired solution. When the camera is recording the app should be disabled from making any changes, and the metadata could also include geo-tagging if it comes from such a device like the iPhone (or android phones as well.)

Wait, should I patent this? ;) Surely someone has thought about it before, either way, it would be great to see it implemented, maybe in the next iteration of the camera.

Is there an SDK for the camera? BMD has to play ball for this to happen.
