This project aims to provide an easy-to-use C# library that wraps the functionality of the native Nikon MAID SDK. The library allows you to control your Nikon DSLR via USB using just a few lines of C#.


  • Control your Nikon DSLR via USB
  • Capture Jpeg and Raw images directly to system memory
  • Receive 'Live View' images
  • Record Video
  • Query and change camera settings (Exposure, Aperture, ISO, etc.)
  • 32 and 64 bit support
  • And much more...

User Reviews

  • Most comfortable way for handling a Nikon DSLR

  • Easy to use and offers all you need to communicate with your Nikon camera.

  • This project is very helpful! This really saved me a lot of overhead from trying to study the Nikon SDK. This is very easy to use and documentation and support is awesome :)

  • Awesome Job!!

  • Thank you for this wrapper. We were using our own COM library between the Nikon SDK and C# and you have saved me the job of eliminating it. BTW the D80 works fine with the Camera Control 2.11 maid modules in Windows 7. You have to be careful with the latest NkdPtp.dll from Camera Control 2.13+ because it requires the Visual Studio 10 C/C++ runtime.
