Press Release: XSories Weye Feye Brings Camera Control to your Smartphone



The Weye Feye is an innovative external device that enables a remote and wireless control of a DSLR camera via a smartphone application. The Weye-Feye generates its own Wi-Fi network and connects via a USB port. It is compatible with most of the Nikon and Canon cameras. The Weye Feye App is available as a free download for Android and soon for iOS. The high-performance central processing unit and long-life battery ensure its self-sufficient operation. The LiveView function allows you to change your camera settings (ISO, Shutter, WB, etc.) and the built-in web server allow you to edit the images, transfer them to your mobile device and share them instantly on social networks. The Weye-Feye gives you greater freedom of movement.

It is said to have an 8 hour battery life in it. This should last long enough for most shoots. It even boasts an impressive .2 second latency, which means your changes to the camera’s settings are super fast. Yes, there are similar products similar to this that is already available such as the Camranger but even the Camranger doesn't offer 8 hours of battery life. Also, the more products, the better for us photographers both in options and competitive pricing.


According to the press release the Weye Feye will be released in the UK in September 2013 for around €249, no word yet though on a US release.

The Weye Feye will smartify your DSLR!
Don’t miss a bit of the action without having to take the plunge!

The high tech accessory brand XSories is proud to introduce a new technological innovation, the Weye Feye, an external device connecting to a DSLR. It generates its own Wi-fi network, enabling a wireless and remote control of a camera via an App on smartphones and tablets (available on Android and iOS).

The Weye Feye adapts to most of the Canon and Nikon cameras. With its built-in battery and server, the Weye Feye is completely autonomous from the camera. It operates with 802.11n Wi-fi technology, which ensures a powerful signal with higher speed and larger range.

The range of the signal (up to 80 meters) coupled with a record 0,2 sec latency makes it the highest-performing product on the market.

With the Live View function available via the App, you will be able to take over the control of the camera without touching it. Change the set-up (ISO, white balance, aperture, etc), switch in between modes (photo or video, time lapse), control the focus (manual or automatic) and wirelessly set off the capture of images.

The Gallery will allow you to view, select and share the images from the smartphone or tablet directly to a computer or via social networks and sharing platforms (YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Dropbox, etc).

The integrated server allows several users to access the Gallery without installing the App.You can now get away from the LCD screen of your camera thanks to the live view function during both still capture and recording. The Weye Feye allows users to engage in new approaches of photography helping them to achieve elaborate composition on their own without having to direct an assistant. Operating your camera(s) remotely gives you more freedom of movement and enables you to capture moments your presence would otherwise disturb.

The Weye Feye will be available in September, at a recommended retail price of 249€.
