Simple App - Enhanced camera functionality

Main menu:

DSLR Tags: camera model



  • Live view with under- and overexposure mode
  • Live histogram (bw, r, g, b)
  • Body shutter count (separated in viewfinder and live view)
  • Get and set image meta tag: owner (not possible on the camera), artist and copyright
  • Camera time is compared to local time (to avoid wrong time stamps)


Get important camera information

... like: body shutter count, lens info, battery status, available shots, camera time and zone.

Additionally, the App provides a compact overview about the general camera information and current image capture settings.


Add meta tags to your images

... to mark them as yours and easily identify them online.

If your camera or memory card gets lost, you can identify your captured images online by the owner, artist and copyright meta tag. If you are lucky and find the lost device, you can identify it by checking the artist and copyright information in the camera.

For safety reasons, the owner meta tag can´t be changed directly on the camera. It´s just visible in the meta tags of the captured images. So if someone uses the images you shared online, you can identify them, by your own owner meta tag.

Live view and live histogram

DSLR Tags: Live view and live histogram

Get live view from your camera on a bigger screen. Smooth zooming in the live view possible.

Use the BW-R-G-B histogram for aditional exposure information. Live view can be switched to greyscale mode with colored under- and overexposure markings (at least in that case, camera is working in exposure simulation mode).

Remote release the camera to shoot an image.

Support for different cameras

DSLR Tags: supported cameras
DSLR tags: camera information

Supported Cameras

  • Canon EOS 6D
  • Canon EOS 70D

Above mentioned cameras are extensively tested within the App.

Not yet supported Cameras

  • Canon EOS 5D mark IV
  • Canon EOS 6D mark II
  • Canon EOS R
  • Canon EOS RP
  • Canon EOS 80D
  • Canon EOS 77D
  • Canon EOS M50
  • Canon EOS M5
  • ...

Above mentioned cameras are not available for me, but they should be able to use with the App.

If someone connects one of these cameras, the App will request an analysis trace, which will be send via plain mail text to the programmer. So the camera could be added immediately. Or even better, share the camera temporarily with him ;-).

DSLR Tags: set meta tags

Set Meta Tags to identify your images

Owner Tag

Added content will be visible as "camera owner" in the EXIF meta tags of the recorded images. For security reasons, this tag can´t be changed on the camera itself.

Artist Tag

Added content will be visible as "image artist" in the IPTC/TIFF meta tags of all recorded images. This tag can be also viewed and edited directly on the camera.

Copyright Tag

Added content will be visible as "image artist" in the IPTC/TIFF meta tags of all recorded images. This tag can be also viewed and edited directly on the camera.

It's a spare time project. If you want to support me, I could need cameras on the list of unsupported cameras :-). I have millions of ideas which features should be added, currently only time and hardware is missing. It's a single person development, so any help is appreciated. Thank you.
