    Downloaded 5.2 but when I run it it says Camera Control 5.1 dev. Not a problem just something you might want to update.

    Thank you! I lost my camera so I had to got an affordable camera quickly so i got the Nikon D50, and it works on Windows 7 with no problem, and I automatically will import and see the pic in “Adobe Lightroom”.

    Thank you! And I really like this old D50, I think is even better than Canon 60D because Nikon D50 is a photographic camera as it should be manual and powerful, is just marketing people from Nikon and Adobe who wanted to erase from earth this wonderful camera that is going to help me to finish my Ph. D Archaeology Thesis.

    How to make tethering work for Nikon D3100 and Windows 7 64-bit (for those like me that cannot use DIYPhotobits script, because it hangs or simply doesn’t work)

    – get the tethered2.zip file from “Tethered with bridge viewing” link
    – unzip the file somewhere on your computer
    – install the drivers that came with the camera or download View NX 2 and install it (it installs the drivers automatically)
    – get Adobe Bridge CS6 and install it
    – create a folder in the C: drive called “tethered”, so you’ll have “C:\tethered\” on your drive
    – connect your camera to your computer via a compatible USB cable
    – turn your camera ON
    – from where you unzipped the file “tethered2.zip” run the “tethered.cmd” script, it should pop up a dialog box saying something like “Establishing conection with the D3100”
    – from now, every photo you take will automatically copied to “C:\tethered\”
    – open Adobe Bridge and point it to look in “C:\tethered\” folder
    – take a photo, it should automatically appear in the window
    – optionally hide the folders panel from Window->Folders panel

    For me this works well and hopefully it will work for you too. I have my set up somthing like D3100 on a tripod, connected through a 120″ USB cable to my laptop sitting on a desk, wich in turn is outputting the image to a 32″ TV above the desk. It looks fairly proffessional and friends love the combination. I’m still a beginner photographer so no costumers involved until now.

    Superb !!!
    Just got this rig up and running within 5 mins, only problem is bracketting appears not to work. But I need to do a little more trialling, to ensure its not me doing something wrong.
    Thanks for some cool software.

    Nikon D40X
    Win XP Home SP2 desktop.
    Just need to try my Fujifilm S6500fd and windows 7 laptop and all combinations of the above.

    Hello Raymond,

    I find this utility extremely useful, but, unfortunately, I can not run it with my Nikon D3100, in my computer (I have Windows Vista).
    When trying to select my camera I get some messages like this (In spanish in my PC): “Error in the script of this page
    line: 1256;
    character: 1;
    error: ‘fnSelectDevice” undefined;
    code: 0;
    url: file:///C:/Program%20Files/DIYPhotoBits.com%20Camera%20Control%205.2/Camera%20Control.hta”
    I get similar messages when I press other buttons (Select Folder, Shutter Release, etc.).
    I think there is a problem with the installation but I can not fix it.
    I will wellcome any help.
    Thanks

    Hi, anybody looking for camera control to integrate with his/her software? or looking for full software with the timeslice freezing time shot for 25/35/50 cameras?

    Then let me know. Thanks!

  • 7 ozibear // Mar 8, 2014 at 7:21 am

    I also get “is not a valid Win32 application” as do several others above. I’ve reloaded 5.0 several times and tried earlier versions but get the same error message. Any suggestions PLEASE.

  • 8 Picisuly // Mar 9, 2014 at 1:26 pm

    Thank you very much!!! 🙂

  • 9 José A. Luis // Mar 17, 2014 at 6:30 pm

    After changing my OS from Vista to Windows 7, I have similar problems as above (#355). Althought I download the latest version (5.2), after installing it I ge the 5.1 version installed. When the script takes control on the camera, shutter works properly, but no image is downloaded and if I try to change any other control, I get the same messages as I pointed in #355.
    Could anybody give some aid?
    Thank you

  • 10 mike // Apr 17, 2014 at 4:55 am

    works great! thanks
    Q- why does this not have a “bulb” position for shutter speed drop down. Goes up to 30 sec. max.

    I use a D3 and a D60. “bulb” not available on the dropdown when teathered.

    I do some astrophotography and some low light imaging and wanted to try this script with those cameras.

    Thanks Again!

  • 11 raymond // Apr 20, 2014 at 7:20 am

    Sadly the WIA interface doesn’t support Bulb so I couldnt make this script do that. I understand an alternative is to take several 30 second shots then stack them in software, but I haven’t tried that personally.

  • 12 D700 // Apr 20, 2014 at 3:44 pm

    Tested the latest version (5.2) on Windows 8.1 with a D700, all works great.

  • 13 Rod09 // Jun 10, 2014 at 3:58 pm

    Just installed it on WIN 8.1 for my D200. Came up immediately and recognized my camera. Also synced with Bridge CS4!!
    Plan to use it for critical focussing with astrophography.

  • 14 Shabbir // Jul 18, 2014 at 1:19 pm

    D3000, Windows 8.1. Connects to camera ok, tethering and button press works ok but can’t control exposure mode or the bracketing function. Is the application not competible with Win8.1?
    Thanks

  • 15 john robertson // Jul 24, 2014 at 6:55 pm

    I have a new Win8 laptop (64bit) and a D70. I’d like to be able to do timelapse for some videos I’m producing. Is this possible with your program? there are mentions of using it on Win8 and D3000 but no mention of using a D70 in this config. Am I nuts to want to do this? > I love my D70 and would like to stick with it.

  • 16 Bob // Sep 3, 2014 at 3:01 pm

    This software use to work great with my D200 now I get cannot run warning: “is not a valid Win32 application”. Any solution?

    Running Win7

  • 17 John // Sep 13, 2014 at 5:17 pm

    Windows 7 32 bit – Nikon D50 – works well. Happily surprised and pleased.

  • 18 john robertson // Sep 13, 2014 at 5:59 pm

    Just wanted to report back in – YES the program works famously with my Win8 laptop and my Nikon D70 – connected via the USB port and shot some awesome timelapse footage. Thanks for this amazing app.

  • 19 Alexandria // Oct 11, 2014 at 7:16 pm

    Hello, I just downloaded the tether for my Nikon D3000 and it does not seem to be working. It activates the shutter but does not save the photo. I have it in JAW mode on the camera and on the software. I have it to save into my Google drive photo folder and I even wrote test shoot in the label section. I am just not having any luck getting it to work. Also I want to add that I use Firefox, if that makes a difference. What else can I do to get it to work?
