How To Build a Cheap DSLR Canon Video Rig Using Samsung Note 3 as Video Monitor With DSLR Controller

This is an updated version of my older simpler camera rig. This rig is setup to use a shotgun mic, a light and most importantly a samsung galaxy Note 3 as video monitor and controller. All of the settings + starting stopping recording or shooting still images can be done from the phone screen. It also has focus peaking. The screen is 1080p. All of this makes this setup alot more advantageous than a standard video monitor screen 🙂

For all the links where to but the bits and pieces scroll down for info under the video.

Great job from the creators of the DSLR Controller App.
