Update: This is now obsolete, use instead the
DIYPhotobits.com Camera Control 1.0 application.
Also called the “Tethered Remote Bridge” script this addition to my scripting library lets me remotely release the shutter on my D300 or D40, while tethered via USB to my Windows PC. Then the image is downloaded and displayed in Adobe Bridge within 3-4 seconds.
It’s a combination of the prior scripts I’ve written so nothing very new to explain.
I am going to be using it while working on my “strobist” portrait skills. As I don’t have a model I’m stuck with doing self-portraits and I want to sit in my chair and trigger the camera and see the results all without getting up.
Yes I know I still have to work to adjust lights and such but it is still sure to be less back-and-forth between camera and seat now!
