I'm just starting out in Photography and someone suggested that I install Nikon's "Camera Control Pro 2" on my computer so that I can adjust the lighting of my shots before shooting with my Nikon camera. It's quite an expensive piece of software and since I already have Adobe Lightroom I wondered if anyone could tell me if I can use Lightroom instead of Camera Control Pro in order to adjust the lighting. I'm not sure whether it would work because apparently I need to connect the camera to my laptop via a USB cable so I'm not sure whether the Nikon camera will work with software other than it's own brand.
Would really appreciate any tips.
Thanks in advance.
Lightroom does have support for tethered shooting, but only for certain models of cameras. Here is a list of cameras for which supported for tethered shooting is provided:
Thanks for the reply,
My camera is a Nikon D3200. I noticed there is a D300 in the list that you gave but not D3200. Is D3200 covered under D300?
Nope - if your camera isn't explicitly named, it's not supported.
