"Is something missing in Camera Control Pro 2?"


San Francisco, US
          

I have Camera Control Pro 2 and I'm not sure if something is broken or missing.

I can't or it doesn't save any of the custom control settings in the Custom Banks or Shooting Menu Banks settings.

Is there something I'm missing or is there something wrong in my setup?

I would like to be able to save mu Custom Bank settings from the specific labels to the individual settings when I need to make changes and use them for specific settings.

How are you trying to save them? Control Pro allows you to edit your bank settings and save them back to the camera. Are you trying to save them to your computer? There is a command that saves camera setting to the computer.

I would like to save the Custom Bank and Shooting Menu Bank settings to a file on the computer.

I see the Save and Load Profile menu options but they only save the settings that are part of the main tabs of the program. They don't save the Custom or Shooting Banks to a file. Or they don't for me.

Is there a way to do this?

I am traveling and away from my copy of control 2, so I can't check it out, but I am sure that it saves your custom settings too.

I did some reading and some research.

It looks like I can't do waht I want CCP2 to do. You can't save the Custom Settings and the Shooting Bank settings to a file on a computer. You can only change it directly to the camera as if you were changing it on the camera.

I was reading the help documentation on CCP2 and in the section "Custom Settings" you will see a few sections highlighted in pink/red that say:

Changes to Custom Settings
Changes made to settings in the Custom Settings dialog are stored in the camera, not on the computer hard disk. This means that changing settings in the Custom Settings dialog has the same effect as changing Custom Settings using camera controls.

Custom Settings
Custom Settings can not be saved to a separate file. Clicking the Reset button resets all Custom Settings to their default values.

I wonder why not. This would be a nice usefull setting to some of us that like to make changes to the custom settings and shooting banks based on different situations on the conditions you're planning to go out shooting for.

Does anyone know if Nikon takes suggestions and really consideres them? I would like to suggest being able to save these settings to a file...
