Nikon Control Beta 3 released

Update: the software has a new name and a new website: and can now be downloaded from the App Store.

New Features:

  • Automatic HDRI Creation
  • Editable Settings
  • Aperture and iPhoto Auto Import
  • GPS Map
  • Self Timer
  • Focus Mode Status
  • Enhanced Viewer
  • Configurable Background Color


  • Much Nicer Design
  • Histogram View in Inspector
  • Faster Histogram Calculation
  • Same Index for Bracketing
  • General Image Details
  • Smaller Main Window

Please note that this is not a Nikon product, however it is based on the Nikon SDK and I can say that it is almost equally good and useful... and free.

    automatic HDR?

    oh great, softwares are starting to make photographers even lazier…

    • Oh, but this one is for tethering. Few months ago some camera manufacturer released that camera that had HDR-built in. It also took panoramas just by swiping the scene. I don’t remember the model or the maker, but it was one of the big ones.

        The Sony DSC-HX1 does the sweeping panorama.

        The Fujifilm Finepix F200 EXR and Ricoh CX1 do something sorta like HDR.

        And I’m sure there are other makers with similar features.

    Photo Rumors? Ha… when did you start that?

    • just recently – to cover the remaining brands 🙂

    will wait for windows one

  • Mac only?

    Mac only? When most users have Windows PC! Could the developer plans a Windows version?

    • funny

      It must be like the 5th mac app ever.

  • Willis

    This guy just writes the program… Its his so he can write it for whatever OS he pleases. I believe Nikon has a PC based SDK as well, so have at it if you like.

    Seriously though, as photography goes, the only PC program that i wish were available on Mac is Corel Paint Shop Pro… I’d say there is more selection available for Mac than PC if your a photographer.

    Oh please, please, please port it to Windows….

  • Hi everybody,

    “Nikon Control” is now called “Sofortbild” (german for “instant image”):

    The new version is almost identically to Beta 3 with some small bugfixes and improvements.

    Hey, so kind of dumb question, because I don’t know any better.
    Do I run this program on SDK to make it run on windows?
    And can I use my USB cable to connect the camera to the PC?

    Don’t flame me I’ma NU~B =)

  • Am I the only one that is a bit curious about the 1.4 85-200 text on the screen?

  • hello

    Please could there be a version that supports the new Nikon D7100
