"Tethered Shooting"


San Marcos, US
          

I would like to see what is involved in getting my D7000 cabled to my(non-apple)laptop. I'm not a computer wizard, at all. Any advice? My goal is to see what I've shot. I'm not trying to trigger the camera from the computer.

Basically all you need is a USB cable and software.

The professional ones would be:

Nikon's Camera Control Pro 2
Lightroom 3.4 and above

Or one of the many cheaper third party programs out there may work for you like DIYPhotobits or SMTether.

There are some simple things you can do to see the images on your PC as you shoot.
1. I use ControlMyNikon software which for a very modest price ($10US) gives me total control over the camera including live view.

2. If you are really cheap, just plug in a USB cable and browse to the memory card in your camera. Then select the option to view extra large icons and you will see the files already on your card and new ones as you shoot. You could then open up a file with some viewer software for a closer look.

Thanks for the quick response. I am not opposed to buying some software but I want the "live view" on my laptop (to be the end result). I have the latest Literoom 3 updates installed. That is what I use for pp. I have tethered the camera via USB but don't seem to be having any luck getting the software to "see". What do I do in Lightroom to get live view up? Thanks in advance.

It's now $20. But worth every penny.

Hi all,

Thanks for the link.

Is it possible to do it with view NX2? Or at least, is it possible to see the last picture directly?
