Nikon publishes a program called Camera Control Pro, a software program intended to help the studio photographer by allowing them to tether their camera to a computer. The problem is, Camera Control Pro doesn’t support some of the latest cameras, and it has a $150 price tag. This inspired Nikontrol 3K, a free program that does basically the same thing, but for free.
Nikontrol 3K was written using the software development kit, and while it only works on the PC, it allows a photographer to remotely control their camera from their computer. You can also preview the last photographs taken, save images from your camera and choose to keep or store the images on your memory care, send files to a FTP server, and it even supports time-lapse shooting.
Of course, this is free and enthusiast written software, so your mileage may vary as far as it’s functionality. Be sure to read all of the support documentation before installing the program.
