CameraRC Deluxe Edition

The Best Software to Tether your Nikon Camera

CameraRC Deluxe Edition is a cross platform program for tethered control of Nikon Digital SLRs. CameraRC Deluxe gives you the maximum tethered control over your Nikon Camera of any solution. Our user interface is designed for the photographer, letting you control all aspects of the photographic experience. The Camera Control Panel (1) provides just the main controls needed during a tethered shooting session, while the Main Options Window (2) gives you quick access to all the detailed controls of your camera but can be hidden away when not needed. The Thumbnail Viewer (3) can be varied in size or closed, and features variable sized thumbs. The Live Viewer Windows (4) and Imaged Viewer (not shown) can be sized and positioned to suit your needs. Live view features a variety of composition aids to improve the tethered shooting experience.

Styled & Scaled Interface

CameraRC Deluxe has over a dozen different user interface styles from which you can select. Whether you prefer a dark or light interface CameraRC Deluxe has the look you want. The CameraRC Deluxe interface also can scale independent of the operating system from 70% to 130% to fit into a small screen or give your eyes a rest by zooming to a large size.

Usability Features To Get You Started Fast

CameraRC Deluxe has usability features to help you get started fast with your first tethering sessions. Nikon cameras have many controls and it can often be difficult to relate those controls to a tethering program. Our unique Show Me How feature provides guided instructions on setting up many camera operations by guiding you through the user interface and explaining the settings. The Control Finder helps you quickly find controls in the programs user interface. The Control Finder lets you search not just on the controls name, but on text related to the control.

Live View Composition Aids

CameraRC Deluxe has a number of live view composition aids that help in setting up your shots while tethered. The brightness and contrast of the live view display can adjusted to get the best working image while transparency adjustments are available to fine tune all of the on-screen controls. Some of the composition aids available are:

  • Virtual horizon display (on supported cameras) displays the camera’s rotation and pitch to properly level the image.
  • Image Masks and Onion Skins. You can create your own image masks for any situations (several examples are provided); in the image shown an 8 X 10 mask is applied to the image. Images can also be captured and used as onion skins for getting the desired image alignment.
  • Set the number of grid lines in both the horizontal and vertical dimension and adjust their color as desired.
  • The Golden Spiral can be rotated to be focused in any quadrant and help compose the image to best draw the eye to the subject.

Use CameraRC Deluxe in the Field

While tethered shooting is great in the studio, don’t leave CameraRC Deluxe at home when you are in the field. CameraRC Deluxe runs great on most Windows Tablets and on Windows/Mac laptops. You can either connect directly to the camera with USB, or use a Nikon wireless adapter to control the camera at a distance. Great for wildlife while maintaining a distance from your subject.

Keeping your images secure

CameraRC Deluxe tethering software downloads images as you shoot them exactly as they are produced by the camera and never alters the image content. With most Nikon cameras you have the option of leaving the image on the camera memory card as well as downloading the images at the time of capture. CameraRC Deluxe also has the capability to make backup copies of the image when it is saved.

The new File Save Options allows the creation of save settings for different shooting sessions. These options let you save your raw and jpg images to different locations as well as save mirror copies. In addition, you can create dynamic paths based on the date/time and camera model using the subfolder settings.

CameraRC Deluxe integrates into your work-flow with the ability to send the images directly to an editing or printing program – the images can be sent manually or automatically when the image is captured.
