iphone App to control DSLR/camera

Hello,
Most motorcyclists also end up being photography enthusiasts. I am working on an app to control DSLR cameras so asking for feedback on ADV seems logical. Simply put, what kind of features would you like to see in such an app!
Would love to hear feedback.

Bigger Buttons

Ability to switch between front and back cameras

Ability to turn on and off rapid fire or burst mode as well as movie

Ability to upload to smugmug or any other similar site in batch if possible. Not sure how with a remote control but would be great.

Ability to turn geotag on

and of course controlling all the other features of the camera

Turning on and adjusting time lapse would be great. Otherwise aperture shutter and iso adjustments, the usual manual controls. CaptureOne has this but it has to have a tethered laptop and wifi. How do you plan to have the phone talk to the camera? Many places I go don't have phone service.

How about capturing multiple images, "bracketing", either by shutter speed, aperture or focal length. This would allow improved dynamic range or depth of field. Then you'd need some ability to combine the multiple images.

Yes, other than time lapse, the usual controls would be nice. As far as time lapse, is there a way to have the phone go to sleep yet still communicate with the DSLR? I'm starting to shoot star time lapse footage and the phone would run out of juice quickly unless it could still work while asleep.

Personally, I'd like to have a cord between the phone and the DSLR. I would hate to miss frames while doing time lapse because of a communication break.

Need a beta tester? PM me.
