Eos and wireless

Hi guys,
I use a eos 1100d modded on my 8se connected to my android tablet with cable and use android DSLR Controller software on it.

Without buying the uber expensive wireless from canon, has anyone tried one of the many wireless sd cards that is available.

Regards
Kon

Suggest you look at the Camranger WiFi device.

Wireless Eos

Thanks Pete,
after visiting a camera store in Sydney, they suggested camranger as well buy was priced on special at $399.

Camranger is basically a wifi hotspot. After more research, have found that a TP-Link MR3040 portable wifi will do exactly the same job for a average price of $60 and work with DSLR controller.

So my aim is to go wireless with 2 tablets.
Tablet 1 - 8se with skyq, starsense, celestron sky portal
Tablet 2 - eos 1100d, MR3040, DSLR Controller.

Going to buy today and connect tonight.

Regards
Kon

I am planning to use old laptop (with WiFi) connected to my home network, running remote desktop and everything else necessary (CdC, PHD etc.) including Canon DSLR utilities for that.
The control will be from desktop comp.
