According to the Aputure blog, the Gigtube Wireless has now been released. This wireless live view remote from Aputure is more ergonomic than some other options because it’s like holding a little point and shoot camera.

When you’re tired of photographing extreme close-ups of lions and polar bears, you (or your assistants) could use this in a lighting-related role for real time feedback while adjusting continuous lighting (or flashes with proportional modelling lights). It could also be used for art direction without the whole crew having to crowd around the back of the camera. Shun the Cyber Commander and ControlTL for the ultimate “Strobist” route with this remote chimping device!

The wired version, which has already been out for a while, can be found at AdoramaLinkDelight and eBay. Keep an eye out in these places for the wireless version coming soon. Price $259ish.

The Gigtube wireless is the latest device from Aputure that gives you live view display and remote control of your camera from a distance, using the latest 2.4G signal transfer technology. The 3.5″ bright color LCD protected by a screen hood, displays great quality pictures even under harsh sunlight conditions.

Features:

  • Live-view Wireless Display and Remote
  • Working Distance up to 100 Meters
  • 3.5″, 230.000 Pixels TFT LCD
  • Easy Mounting Screen Hood
  • Strong Resistance to Interference
