Posted by: Ralf Jurrien

Nikon Camera Control Pro 2 software remotely controls most functions of Nikon digital SLRs from a computer that is connected via USB cable or through wired or wireless LAN using a wireless transmitter. Advanced functions of the new Nikon D3 and D300 such as Viewer for preview and selection of images prior to transfer to a computer, Live view function and Picture Control System are supported. It also supports workflows of Nikon’s exclusive photofinishing software Capture NX (optional) and browser and viewer software ViewNX. In addition to the D3 and D300, Camera Control Pro 2 is compatible with the Nikon D2 series, D1 series, D200, D100, D80, D70 series, D50 and D40 series.

Camera Control Pro 2 - Control
An upgraded version of the current Camera Control Pro will also be released simultaneously. Most settings of Nikon digital SLRs, that are connected via USB cable, such as exposure mode, shutter speed and aperture can be controlled remotely from a computer. Wired or wireless LAN is also available when using a wireless transmitter. In addition to direct transfer of images from a camera to a computer, all procedures from shooting to saving images are smoothly processed.

Nikon Camera Control Pro 2 - Enhanced functions
Viewer function enables thumbnail display of images stored in a computer. Images in a camera buffer can be confirmed with thumbnail or preview display on a computer prior to transferring, enabling deletion of unnecessary images. This remarkably increases efficiency. Supporting the Liveview mode (Hand-held mode and Tripod mode) of the D3 and D300, it permits adjustment of focus point and shutter release while confirming the image on a computer. In Tripod mode, focal-plane contrast AF on a desired point within a specific area is possible. It also supports Picture Control System of the cameras. Picture Control parameters can be selected and adjusted on a computer, and custom curves (tone compensation data) can be created and registered. 51-point AF can be controlled and displayed. Fine tuning of the new white balance is available.

Nikon Camera Control Pro2 integration
Support for ViewNX browser and viewer software Images taken and saved in a computer can be viewed. Support for Capture NX photo-finishing software Auto save processing (batch processing) is possible by downloading taken images to a monitor folder of Capture NX. Tone compensation data files set by Capture NX can also be imported.
