FAQ about the equipment

  1. Q: What camera models are compatible?
    A: Most Canon entry level DSLRs are compatible. These models have been used intensively with our system: T3, T3i, T5, T5i, T6, T6i, T6s, t7i, 100d, 200d

  2. Q: Are any mirrorless / point and shoot cameras compatible with Xangle Camera Server?
    A: We’re currently testing the M50, EOS-R and EOS-RP. More news to come!

  3. Q: Do you support any other manufacturers than Canon?
    A: We do have basic support for Nikon, but only on the Raspberry Pi architecture, and you’ll need an external triggering system (Esper trigger boxes). We also now have basic support for some Android smartphones. Contact us to know the latest details. We also now support most recent Android smartphones through an additional software (not included). For more details, check out SlimRig.com

  4. Q: What’s the difference between the USB-HUB and the Raspberry Pi architecture?
    A: USB-HUB is a simpler solution and works with the equipment you probably already have (One Windows computer, a few cameras, one usb hub and that’s it). Raspberry Pis are making it easier to scale up your rigs. Check out the performance difference on the benchmark page.
