AWESOME!!! I like my new Nikon D5300, but find the software from Nikon a big disappointment (as compared to the Canon software ) I had hoped to use the wifi option on the camera for remote shooting, but that is 1-very limited and 2-only on android, not pc. digiCamControl has everything I want. It allows me to preview images on a large screen when shooting from a tripod., I'll just get a longer USB-cable. Love it.
This program is just excellent. As it is peranently updated and improved it is even better than Nikon's own 150 dollar Camera Control Pro version. For that reason alone it deserves a 5 star rating!
Used this program for several months. It fills a vital role for free DSLR to PC software integration. Completely free, easy to use, and few issues which are constantly improved, this is a great tool. One which I will happily and extensively continue to use!
