  • Interesting that D5/D500-related changes are already trickling through. It is expected, but confirmation is good.

    One note: “Burst shooting can now be initiated with the Start and AF and Start buttons.” ? Oh, maybe it is “can be initiated with the ‘Start and AF’ and ‘Start’ buttons”.

    CCP2, finally can resize the live screen, awesome. This was one of the main reasons why I left CCP. This function is great for product shoots. I just tried on my MBPr, the only issue is CCP “may not display correctly at screen res over 1920×1080”, sort of odd as guess many ppl would be using higher res screen. I just looked on my MBP retina and yes the screen menu in live view isn’t showing correctly (squashed menu) – but is functioning properly. Guess Nikon was in a rush, should be able to sort out in next update.

    How does CCP2 compare with Capture One Pro? It looks like it does a lot more? Or does it?

      From the tethering point of view, yes, a lot more

  • TylerChappell

    The USB cables included with Nikon DSLR’s never seem to be very long. In fact, I think the one that came with the D7100 was actually longer than the one included with the D750. How do most people shoot tethered? Do they have their laptops super close to the camera or are they just using USB extension cords?
