    Just looked at jeffs latout looks cool
    Just in the middle of changing the look for myself
    Personal preference was to put the capture button beneath star abd stop teather buttons

    Amazing how simlar it looks to what i am doing
    Shiws just how good the software is when tweeks from others follow the same path

    It does indeed look great. Two thoughts occur to me. If everything was turned in divs and given id= could all this be done via style sheet only? e.g. allow those of you wishing to redesign to do so without fear of breaking the code. And allow you to distribute style sheets that can be used with the code as is. I mean I know it’s theoretically possible but is it practical?

    Secondly, I really need to implement the rotate preview function! I’ve realized there are IE filters that can do that.

    Thirdly – will someone please give me a 48 hours in a day so I can work on this. ­čÖé ­čÖü

    One thing I have done so far is to remove the inner table using three td elements in the main table
    Having one table allows easier control via css

    I anm also creatin a much lighter stylesheet

    Rotate preview would be a great christmas present

    Thanks for your program! Have got through the comments above and some have questions about BULB. So do I. Is it possible to include this in shutter time? D50 used for astrophotography.

  • 5 raymond // Dec 10, 2012 at 8:06 am

    Sadly, no I can’t do bulb. The interface I’ve used (WIA) does not include bulb support, the longest exposure it can do is 30 seconds.

  • 6 Marcel // Dec 10, 2012 at 3:24 pm

    @Raymond: thanks for fast reply. I’ll try to stack 30sec exposures, possibly that wil give some good results too!

  • 7 Damon // Dec 16, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    love the program, but have one problem, does any body why it would kill my camera battery so fast (D40) I have tried two fully charged, same thing 10 minutes battery is dead

  • 8 raymond // Dec 17, 2012 at 12:53 am

    @Damon Puzzled by that as I have D40 as well and battery lasts at least an hour when tethering… Are you doing timelapse?

  • 9 Damon // Dec 17, 2012 at 1:53 am

    no, just shooting here in my house while learning the program, going to try again tomorrow and I’ll let you know how that goes, thanks

  • 10 Andr├ęs // Dec 19, 2012 at 2:39 pm

    just tried again with d90, toshiba laptop & windows 7. Still get script error every time I click on a button on screen, AAAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHH. Someone please help me!!!!!!!

  • 14 Josh // Jan 14, 2013 at 8:50 pm

    Hey, Just wanted to say thanks for making this program, I’ve only quickly tested it using my Nikon D3100 and Windows 7 64bit but it works really well, the only thing I could see that may be of use would be to have the live view feature so it showed on the computer screen what the camera was pointing at as the camera screen wont show it, it just goes black if you try to activate it, don’t know if it would be possible to add it into the next update possibly? Even so its a great program so thanks again!

  • 15 diego colonnello // Jan 16, 2013 at 12:56 am

    My friend, this iss an awesome software, i have a nikon d3200 and almost no tethering software is compatible, but yours worked like a charm….

    only two things……

    one is a strange script error message that apears sometimes

    the other is that i am not able to use bracketing with my camera, i am using windows 7……

    thanks so much for your job….

    from Venezuela…..

    Works fine with Windows 8 – 64 Bit, Adobe Lightroom 4.3 and my Nikon D3100 …. Cheers

  • 17 Filip // Jan 18, 2013 at 1:09 pm

    When I run 5.2 in Windows 8 pro 64-bit, there’s a popup saying: “Out of memory at line: 143”.

    “Select camera” button doesn’t work.

  • 18 sayewillis // Jan 18, 2013 at 5:38 pm

    WOW this is a fantastic program!

    And yes it is all in the cable, change to a new cable and every thing works great.

    Nikon D3100

  • 19 Geoffrey Gill // Jan 19, 2013 at 12:15 am

    I just downloaded the 5.2 to my HP and my Gateway laptop. Works fantastic with my HP and D3100. When I run it on the Gateway it does not recognize that any camera is attached. I would prefer to run it on the laptop for astrophotography. Both running W7. Does anyone have any thoughts as to what I might be doing incorretly?

  • 20 Chris // Jan 20, 2013 at 5:57 am

    Thanks, save me a lot of money if I buy the Nikon software. It works with my Nikon D600, perfectly good, my other camera Fuji X Pro1, Olympus EPL1, Fuji S3 Pro & Lumix G1 were not competitable, not working Does you software work with Apple ?
    Thanks again.

  • 25 Sam // Feb 5, 2013 at 2:47 pm

    Considering the fact that there are a few questions regarding the functionality with D3100 and D3200 (with apparent reply from users that all is fine…), maybe it is time to update the table that lists what camera works with the software…


  • 26 Abdelhak ACIM // Feb 5, 2013 at 11:03 pm

    Hello , As you see when i click on the program it doesn’t start correctly i get Bloc-note instead with HTML codes?!

    Here’s a video i’ve made to show you

    Thank’s guys

  • 27 raymond // Feb 7, 2013 at 4:16 am

    @Sam, true true…

    @Abdelhak ACIM

    you need to associate .HTA files with Iexplore. Find the .hta file in Program Files, right click it and open it with c:\windows\system32\mshta.exe

  • 28 Abdelhak ACIM // Feb 7, 2013 at 7:15 pm

    @Raymond, it’s work, thank you so much

  • 29 Abdelhak ACIM // Feb 7, 2013 at 9:01 pm

    Hi, Sorry for the inconvenience. but i get a new problem here’s the video !

    by the way thank’s for the great job!

  • 30 raymond // Feb 8, 2013 at 1:20 am

    @Abdelhak ACIM The error relates to saving the image file, I’m not sure why. Maybe try saving to a different simple location – start with c:\ and see if that works. Then maybe try c:\temp and so on.

  • 31 Abdelhak ACIM // Feb 8, 2013 at 1:11 pm

    @Raymond, Thank you it’s work !

  • 32 Wiredless // Feb 9, 2013 at 10:34 pm

    How does this software need to connect to the camera? USB? Wi-Fi? Eye-fi?


  • 33 TobiasHans // Feb 19, 2013 at 5:19 pm

    Hi i get error message. that c:\program\cameracontrol\cameracontrol5.2\camera control.hta not is vaild win32-program… what should i do now ?

  • 34 Ewan // Feb 28, 2013 at 4:05 pm

    This is brilliant! Thanks so much for putting it online.
    I did however encounter a few issues (I’m using a Nikon D40):
    – I don’t seem to be able to have full access to settings on the computer so in the end I just set the camera into manual (on the actual camera) and made all the adjustments on the camera itself.
    – The photos didn’t appear in the folder I set up and just stayed on the SD Card.

    It’s still genius anyway!

  • 35 ?????? // Feb 28, 2013 at 7:09 pm

    ?? ???????? ? D3100. ???????? ?????? 5.0 ? 5.2.

  • 36 DAVID // Mar 11, 2013 at 5:08 pm

    Love the software, we have been using it for the past 2 years. However we just upgraded all 16 laptops to windows 8 and don’t think the software likes it. When you click on select camera there are 3 cameras in there even though only one has been hooked to each laptop. You have to go to the task manager, close it, and then select the last camera and it will connect.
    But lately we have been getting a script error that just wont go away. Restart the computer, the program, and it just keeps coming up. If you click to keep using nothing will save. Anyone else run into this. Only way we have been able to fix it is by uninstalling and installing, then shut down computer, restart and 50% of the time it will fix it and no more script error for a day or two.

    I can not express how thrilled I am with this. It works with my D600. Lightroom doesn’t even support tethering the D600 yet.

  • 40 noel // Apr 26, 2013 at 10:02 pm


    It does not seem to work on my D3100. im using a pc running windows 8

  • 41 Galaza // Apr 28, 2013 at 5:53 pm

    I found your remote scipr partialy usable for my photo experiment.
    I there any way to shoot without any prompting (with parameter). I’m using web camera software to detect movement, then it can run script or program with parameter to shoot image.

    I’ve been looking for months for tethered shooting for Nikon 3200. This program is working about 90%. The problem is I can’t get the photos to show up in the folder I selected, nor get them to show up on the computer screen. Is there something I’m doing wrong. I’m running windows 7 64bits

  • 44 Jerome // May 28, 2013 at 10:56 pm

    So I deleted and reinstalled the program and it works flawlessly

    It might be that I am being a bit slow but I can’t open the software I am running Windows7 and when I attempt to open it after downloading I get the message which says it is not a valid win32 application. What am I doing wrong please?

  • 50 Manuel Moreira // Sep 18, 2013 at 11:38 am

    Thank you for this software. It’s a life saver.
    However, although it works fine on my PC (Windows 7 64-bit), it does not on my laptop (also Windows 7 64-bit).

    Every time I press a button I get a message saying (depending on the button) “Script Error – Line 1256 – ‘fnSelectFolder’ is not defined – Do you wish to continue running scripts on this page?”

    Naturally, I click “Yes”. But the problem doesn’t go away.

    Do you have any advice about how to solve this problem?

    Thank you.
