Manfrotto Updates Its Digital Director Interface with New Models for iPad Mini4 & iPad Pro

Manfrotto shows off the Digital Director, a monitoring solution between select DSLRs and an iPad.

Manfrotto has updated their Digital Director line with additional sizes that support the iPad mini4 and iPad Pro.  The Digital Director connects via USB to select Canon and Nikon DSLRs, allowing the user to take advantage of the larger screen of the iPad for monitoring and control.  All basic controls are available via the iPad, but it also provides monitoring solutions to evaluate exposure.  Perhaps an intuitive solution for doing studio work and showing the frame to clients?  They are $300 and will be available at the end of June.

I'd be interested to see how it compares with the Cam Ranger, which seems to do quite similar things.

Great Idea, Camera support fail though. Only Canon and Nikon? Why even bother with Nikon at all...Video is not in the cards for them. Make this for Panasonic and Sony stuff and you will see a boom in adopters though.
