Connect your Nikon DSLR to your PC and experience new ways to capture images. Macro photography, timelapses, stop motion, HDR, long exposures, portrait sessions, product and laboratory sessions just got a lot easier.
ControlMyNikon can handle simple remote control of your camera to complex technical shoots. Originally created to shoot bettter flower images, it found it’s way into studios, movie sets, laboratories, hospitals, museums, schools, marketing firms and backyards. It has become a standard worldwide. This was unexpected. And wonderful.
Support for barcode scanners, motorized rails, 3D Controllers, control by external apps and many ways to trigger the shutter makes your technical shoot easier. Think scanning a product barcode before shooting with the data embedded in folder and filenames and metadata. Or accurately framing and focusing an artifact on your computer monitor instead of the tiny camera LCD.
Backyard birds, hobbies and family shots can all benefit from ControlMyNikon’s features. It can even figure out which cat isn’t using the litter box. The setup: ControlMyNikon with live view motion trigger and high ISO in the middle of the night. Perpetrator identified. Cat not pleased. This really happened. So tether away, and have fun!
New in Version 5:
LIVE VIEW AS IT WAS MEANT TO BE
By viewing your camera’s live view on your computer monitor in a window or full screen, you greatly reduce re-shoots and post-processing time by ensuring that you got it right before you take the shot. Sometimes you can’t even see the LCD because it is on a copystand/tripod/boom. You can remotely autofocus or manually adjust the focus. Even zoom in and out so that you can confirm the focus is tack-sharp. Optionally, you can apply an overlay or review the exposure with the live histogram. Nikon DSLR tethering has never been easier.
HIGH-VOLUME WORKFLOWS MADE EASY
Perfect for those product, school, lab or other shoot that requires accurate record keeping. With the batch shooting feature, you can import a data file in advance of your shoot or query a live database and have ControlMyNikon embed the data into your image filename, folder name and metadata. If you don’t have a data file, you can embed the barcode instead.
ADJUST SETTINGS REMOTELY
WIth tethering, you avoid the problem of the nudging your carelfully composed shot when you need to adjust camera settings. Just set it on the ControlMyNikon screen and you are good to go. You can also save your settings in a profile so you can re-use it again later. You could have one profile for macro, another for landscapes and even another for those tricky HDR shots. So you can just tweak the settings, shoot, and the image is automatically transferred to the computer.
FLEXIBLE FILE AND FOLDER NAMES
Take advantage of ControlMyNikon’s extensive options for naming files and folders. Use numbering, dates and even embed data from batch shooting sessions. File and folder names modified by a barcode? Yes, it can do that too.
REALLY, REALLY USEFUL TRIGGERS
Command ControlMyNikon to capture an image or movie simply by using your voice, web browser, electronic sensor, sound, powerpoint remote or keyboard. Or, you can create a live view motion trigger. Just draw a target zone in the live view screen and the trigger will activate when motion is detected in the zone. Now you can literally capture images of those elusive backyard birds while you are off doing something else. Many of our users do this, with great results.
