In September of 2012 the CameraMator project was successfully funded via Kickstarter - I backed the project, and was rewarded with one CameraMator unit delivered to me in New Zealand in late January of 2013.

This review is of the Kickstarter model of the CameraMator. The manufacturers have not yet completed the official manual (at the time of publication of this review) so hopefully it will serve as both a review of the product and a reference to those who have the product and need to see how it works.

The Kickstarter project described the CameraMator as:

Control your DSLR and review images with an iPad, Phone and Android Devices.
Launched: Aug 7, 2012
Funding ended: Sep 6, 2012

"Wireless tethering is the holy grail of location shooting. This Kickstarter project will make it a reality." --- CNET Australia
