The DiamondThe Diamond

In my day job I have worked opposite The Diamond since it opened in September 2015 but until yesterday I was embarrassed to say that I hadn't photographed it yet.  So I rectified that by taking some snaps yesterday during the morning and then another this evening of the building at dusk.

While taking the dusk shot this evening I tried out the DSLR Controller Android app to fully remotely control my camera using a Samsung tablet - it was a revelation and made taking the photo a doddle.  I really highly recommend the app.

I was able to have a live view from the camera on the tablet that gave a preview of what the photo would look like using the settings that I could also change using the app.  One click on the app took the photo and a preview of the image on the camera was then loaded on the screen so I could see it straightaway. The only negative was that the exposure meter on the app doesn't work for my camera but the live view preview and the histogram from a test shot was a sufficient enough substitute that I didn't miss the meter.  I've given the app a 5 star rating.
