Previously we talked about the free Windows tethering application that does pretty much the expensive Nikon Camera Control Pro 2 is capable of. Now Stefan Hafeneger played with the Nikon SDK packages and created a Mac application that allows tethered shooting with Nikon DSLR cameras.
The current beta1 version supports Nikon D3, D2, D700, D300 and D90. Since I am not a Mac user, I cannot test it out. From the author’s description, the application allows tethered single shot or exposure bracketing. The author is looking for ideas, suggestions, and feature requests. For me, automatic time lapse would be great. However it is still useless if it doesn’t run on Windows, and Stefan has refused to make a Windows version. I wish I have time and the courage to pick up my programing again.
