- Quick overview -

If you can't afford to buy the original Camera Control Pro 2 from Nikon for 180 USD then this program would be a good alternative to it.
Just download the NiControl.exe, start it, select your camera (connect it first) and the program will ask you to download the necessary DLLs.
You can download the camera specific files manually by yourself from the Links section below.
