Just wondered if Control Pro 2 updates are likely to offer remote start and stop of video work and option to download file to PC after. For photomicroscopy, my main interest with a D5000, the option to take still of a subject or video remotely would be very useful.

Potentially useful for other tethered video work as well.

Remote control of live view is already possible so would seem to just require the remote option of the OK button to start / stop video.

I asked Nikon Europe and they seemed quite receptive of wish list of new features. It was a little while before they introduced Live View control into Control Pro 2 after feature came into the cameras, so hopefully they will.
