Using this device, you can use your iPad to get a time delayed Live View and control the basic functions of your C300: Focus, Exposure, White Balance, Gain, ISO, etc. Man there are a whole bunch of situations where I can see this being a life saver. But as they said in “Contact” about the astronaut suicide pill, its main use will be for scenarios that no one has even thought of yet 🙂
On a tangent, I loved Carl Sagan’s novel of Contact, one of my favourite Sci-Fi examinations of science, atheism and religion. A great ending that makes you think. Why the H-E-double-hockey-sticks did Hollywood have to try and make it into a love story?! And I’m all for suspension of disbelief, but seriously? You built a second massive Machine-from-outerspace and NOBODY noticed?
