NKRemote Help

Top  Next



NKRemote allows recent Nikon digital SLR cameras to be operated tethered to a PC using a USB cable. All of the camera's controls remain fully operational when connected to the PC and pictures can be taken directly using the camera's shutter release or remotely from the PC.

It is advisable to use a mains DC adaptor when using NKRemote for extended periods or when using the time lapse features. If the camera is located a long way from the PC or is not easily accessible it is essential that there is a way of turning the power to the camera on and off. Then if there is a communication failure between the camera and PC it is possible to turn everything off and to start again.
