Features

GR Remote uses Wi-Fi to connect the GR II with a smartphone or other communication device. It is an exclusive GR II application that enables you to use the communication device to perform camera shooting and photo display and specify various camera settings.

Fully control the GR II from a smartphone

Almost all the settings and operations possible on the GR II itself can be done via GR Remote. Shooting mode, aperture, shutter speed, and the GR II’s diverse range of other shooting settings can be easily specified from a smartphone or tablet.
Note: Except power ON and internal flash pop-up.

Special installation not required for the application

GR Remote can be used by just accessing the application URL from your smartphone or tablet using a Web browser. There is also a “cache version” that can be used even when off-line.



Convenient operations

Convenient image browsing is possible with quick thumbnail display, image advance by swiping, display magnification, etc.

Simultaneous control with both camera buttons and application

Even when the camera is being controlled with GR Remote, normal camera operations are possible on the GR II itself. So you won’t miss a shutter chance even when you want to take a quick shot during remote shooting.
Note: Priority is given to the most recent setting change.

GR Remote Initial start-up button

This version is for devices that can simultaneously use Wi-Fi and mobile communications. It is the version recommended for use on an iPhone.

GR Remote [Cache version] Initial start-up button

This version is for devices that cannot simultaneously use Wi-Fi and mobile communications. After the application has been started once, it is cached on the device so after that Internet connection is not necessary. Persons using an Android device or iPod should use this version.
Note: Application download and update may take considerable time in some cases.
Note: Since the application is stored in the device’s HTML application cache, if the browser cache is cleared, it is necessary to do the download again.

Adding the application URL to the home screen makes it easy to start up the application later. If the application is started from the home screen, it operates with a full-screen display Web application format. Web application format is recommended because the GR Remote is optimized for Web application format.

GR Remote Automatic Demo

If you are connecting with the GR II and Wi-Fi, the demo actually controls the GR II so you can view a real automatic demo using your own GR II.
