    The aim of this thesis was the creation of a mobile applications for the Android operating system, which would allow the users using supported smart mobile devices to remotely control a digital single-lens reflex camera from the camera manufacturer Canon. The application was named Upravljalnik fotoaparata. The primary objective, which we followed in the thesis, was to produce a application with a basic functionality of taking a photo or the triggering of the camera aperture. We discussed both the infrared remote controlling for devices with a built-in infrared transmitter, wired cable remote control for use in combination with a device's audio-output and a corresponding generated sound signals as well as control via the USB connection. In the first part of the thesis, we briefly introduce the camera that we want to remotely operate and we also describe the Android operating system and the development environment. In the second part, we describe the making of the mobile applications. For each of the controlling modes, we first analyzed the issue and searched for its possible solutions, which were then also practically built within the application. In doing so, we also sometimes expanded the basic operation with additional functionalities such as capturing a photo with a timed delay or shooting in Bulb mode. As an extension of the operation we also presented the intervalometer functionality and support for interval imaging .
