DSLR Liveview From Drone to IPad




Introduction: DSLR Liveview From Drone to IPad

Launched in Kickstarter, Lumera is a new hackeable device that transforms DSLR cameras into the smartest.

Our hexacopter drone flying a DSLR Camera with Lumera on top of it! you can see Lumera live view feature from one of our DSLR cameras to an iPad. This is of course one of the endless possibilities you will be able to explore with Lumera.

Step 1: Materials

Step 2: Prepare Vibrating Damper Laser Cutting Machine

Use laser cutting machine along with these files, to obtain picture below:

For top use MDF 5mmm Sheet

For Bottom use MDF 3mm Sheet.

Cut foam using the shape given.

Step 3: Assembly Foam Vibration Damper

Use 4 1.25” screws to fix both MDF cuted sheets and the foam.

Step 4: Lumera on Top of Camera

Place Lumera with the hotshoe on top of camera with an USB Cable.

Step 5: Fix Camera to Drone

    Great tutorial. Love your innovative damper. That sure is a big camera. It just shows you the possibilities of using this application with a quality multirotor that can lift a bit of weight.

    I'm wondering why you'd choose such a heavy camera - surely you'd go for something mirrorless, like the Sony a6000 ???

    Which wireless frequency is this? If it is 2.4 ghz you are playing with fire, 5.8 ghz is fine. The receiver and transmitter both use the 2.4 ghz band and will likely cause a fly away if your not careful. Plus looking at the specs of your multirotor your definitely at the max weight or beyond for that setup. I have been flying these for four years now and don't think there is something better. I love em.

    Ooh, very cool! Does your drone have any trouble lugging around that big camera?
