The Leaf and Canon software I have seen in use ran very fast which is absolutely important here. How useful would any of this be if when shooting tethered to the PC the pictures started stacking up or heaven forbid froze the computer?
So I downloaded a trial copy from Nikon first. I am pleased to say it runs fast. Previews pop up on screen in no more than one second, even when shooting tif on my D300 which are 35MB files. What pleased me even more is that it ran equally fast on my notebook computer which does not have near the processor or graphics power of my desktop PC.
You are managing 3 windows when working with your camera tethered to the PC. There is a preview window that is resizable showing the images very quickly. It can be configured for different magnifications, single frame view or filmstrip view. A second, smaller, window shows a histogram and download status of the files as they are coming in. The third window is a camera control window that allows remote triggering and access to all on camera settings and menus. If you have a Nikon D3 or D300 you can also work in Live View on screen in both the handheld and tripod modes.Read more ›
The user interface is the first MDI application I've seen in more than ten years and it is really clumsy, with multiple windows doing sort of the same thing. The design shows no evidence of stepping back and thinking about how a photographer would actually use something called Camera Control.
To be fair, software's functionality is pretty much as advertised. You can shoot tethered and control the camera from a computer. However, the capture and rendering of RAW files feels very slow, which will limit its application.
Bottom line, the software has a $5 amateur 1992 Windows 3 shareware look and feel, not a $199 from one of the top professional DSLR makers. As other reviews have noted here, Camera Control should be given away with the DSLRs. I feel a bit of a chump paying even the excellent Amazon price for such an unrefined package.
I use this product every day in my studio, shooting product photos, and there is nothing like the immediate feedback of seeing the pic in high-res on my monitor. If you have never shot tethered, you are missing out.
The $150 I spent on this product was a great investment! It paid for itself with the first photo session after installing it. I could NEVER go back to swapping mem cards to see what I was getting.
Considering I use this product every day, I find the cost of it negligible. Sure, it would be nice if Nikon would just give this away with every camera body sold...it would be nice if they gave away Circular Polarizers with every lens too. Hell, it would be nice if they threw in the AC Power Adapter for my camera also, but that's the way it goes.
All things considered, I'm a very satisfied Nikon owner.
The reason it's not included with the camera is that not everybody wants it or needs it, so why would they want to pay for it.
Bulb exposure is possible by the way, but you need the remote control to do it.
it's also useful for setting camera defaults and time etc. By all means, if you do studio or controlled shooting, it is a most useful tool.
By the way, it allows you to shoot direct to the computer without using cards in the camera.
Just shoot, and burn to disc while the customer is looking at the shots, perfect results and you are done. no post process etc. it's great.
