Clean feature lineup

You are welcomed by a user-friendly layout that embeds an Explorer-like panel in the main window for helping you easily browse throughout the content of your files and folders stored on your PC.

Live view display

The program offers a live view of your camera on your computer monitor so you can shoot the perfect area and lets you remotely autofocus or manually alter the focus, zoom in or out of the scene, and review the exposure with the aid of a histogram.

Adjust camera settings remotely

ControlMyNikon gives you the freedom to alter your camera settings right from the main panel of the utility. You may adjust the shutter, aperture, ISO, delay, WB, and other parameters, and save settings with the aid of profiles which can be reused in the future for other photo shootings. For example, you can keep a profile for landscapes and another one for macro.

Different types of shootings

You may choose between several shooting modes, such as HDR, burst, time-lapse, stop motion, focus stacking and long exposure. The batch shooting feature can be used for importing a data file prior to your shooting sessions.

File management options

The utility makes it easier for you to name files and folders by embedding numbers, dates and data from batch shooting sessions. In addition, it is able to save a copy of your captured picture to another location, such as network or USB drive.

Support for different triggers

There are different ways for triggering the shutter. You may capture an image or movie by using your voice, web browser, electronic sensor, sound, mouse, phidgets, remote Powerpoint connections, external app or keyboard.

You can even create a live view motion trigger by specifying the target zone in the live view screen, so as to be able to capture photos when motion is detected in the zone.

Built-in image browser

The image browser is used for examining and assessing the quality of your images with the aid of zoom functions. In addition, you can review metadata, perform searches, work with an image magnifier, edit items in an external editor, filter data by extension, and switch to a full screen mode.

Configuration settings

You can make use of shortcuts for fast actions and reassign them, change the looks of the utility by applying different themes, add default metadata (copyright and credit), automatically connect at startup and enable the live view, activate the barcode scanner, set the clock, and check out the battery level.

A reliable and smart tethering app

In conclusion, ControlMyNikon can be successfully used for product, school, lab or other shoots that require accurate image captures. It delivers an intuitive layout and excellent output results but it eats up CPU and memory so the overall performance of the system may be burdened.
