And it has… “Native tethered shooting support for select Nikon and Canon DSLR cameras”… So that may make my script obsolete, at least for those with Lightroom.

If you find that the Camera Control 5.0 script is not working at all on Vista or Win7 it probably is because it is trying to properly set the jpg/raw status during camera initialization and that doesn’t always work properly on non-XP systems.
Because this messes up the whole script camera initialization other things stop working as well. So try this beta version where I have turned off the error checking for that suspect line:
Please let me know in the comments if this helps, and if so I’ll release it in proper packaged format.

Happy Lunar New Year to those of you who celebrate it, and welcome to the Year of the Tiger release of DIYPhotobits Camera Control!
DIYPhotobits Camera Control 5.0 – The Tiger Release – gets a new major version number (from 4 to 5) to reflect several important new enhancements, plus a “.0” to show that this is new stuff and not as well tested as I would have liked.

Changes in 4.1 – the “Eat your own dog food” release of DIYPhotobits.com Camera Control.
– allow fractional bracketing by changing Cint to Cdbl
– don’t crash on line 157 if there is nothing to download
– removed the “download immediately” function and changed things so that the normal tether does this function
– fixed the bug where push external viewer doesn’t work unless you explicitly choose the output folder

Update: Sadly this doesn’t work. Ok I really need to fix this bug soon.
Getting this message from DIYPhotobits.com Camera Control when you click the “Shutter Release” button?
It’s a bug, the script is failing to handle the fact that the camera is very slightly slow in delivering the image after taking it.
To avoid this:
Stop using the “Download Immediately” checkbox
Instead, press the “Start Tether” button.
The result is (almost) the same; when you click Shutter Release the images ARE immediately downloaded (because the tether is running), but it’s by a different piece of code that patiently waits for the image to become available rather than demanding it immediately.

I blogged about Stefan Hafenege before, he has developed a new version of his free tethering program. It’s specific to Mac and to particular Nikon DSLR models, but if that’s your combination then it looks like a great solution.
Once again, well done to Stefan!

Stefan Hafeneger , has built a Nikon specific camera control app for macs which is now beta and freely available. He is using the Nikon SDK as well so should be able to implement much more Nikon specific controls than I am able to via WIA on Windows in my script.
Apparently he is able to understand the SDK as well – which means not only can he program better than I but his English/Japanese parsing skill is much higher than mine as well and I salute him!

Sorry, being a total geek here.
If you are also a command line geek you will look at the above and go Ahhhh…
Otherwise, it means nothing and you can skip over this post. 🙂
For the rest of you — the above “converts” NEF files into JPG faster than anything you have ever seen before.
And is great for converting 250 NEF files you snapped of something totally unimportant that should have been shot in jpg and not raw.
