DIY Wireless Camera Control for Canon and Nikon DSLRs over Android WIFI for $30
With the hacked firmware installed you can use the TP-Link MR3040 ( the same used by Camranger ) as a wifi dongle for you android device. With the DSLR Controller app installed this basically gives you a wireless monitor and controller for your Canon camera. Frame rate isn't full speed, but the refresh rate is more than enough to make this usable. For $30 it's a pretty darn good value.(1)

PROBLEMS, I HAVE A NIKON!!!
Do not worry, because, DslrDashboard is an Android application for tethering/controlling your Nikon or Canon DSLR camera connected with USB/wireless to your Android device or through DslrDashboardServer running on OpenWrt router or your Linux device like TP-Link MR3040 . (2)
In this video zawzero explains how to use DslrDashboard
In this tutorial we will install alternative firmware to the TP-Link MR3040 Router and use it to connect to the DSLR via the free software "DSLRDashboard" using an Android Device.
The camera will be connected to the USB Port of the mobile router, so you are able to control all the functions of your DSLR within the WIFI range. (3)
