So I’ve always wanted to try tethering my D90 to my laptop for shooting products and small macro items but never wanted to spend the $130 bucks for Nikons Camera Control Pro 2. Especially since Nikon is the only manufacturer that does not offer this software for free like all the rest.
So I did a little googling and found a free software solution I thought I would share here.
First is DiyphotoBits, it’s free and worked great on both my Windows XP laptop and my Windows 7 desktop….I downloaded the software and started shooting within 5 minutes and its very cool. You can even control the shutter and other commands from your computer. Did I mention It’s Free!
For Mac users this free software seems to be the most popular. It’s called Sofortbild
Other Free Tethering software I found but have not tried.
