digiCamControl allows you to control a DSLR camera remotely. Then, you can import the images and the EXIF data. The connection is simply through a USB cable, making it an interesting and easy to use piece of software to explore.
The interface is not overly fancy. Still, it is quite intuitive. The menus are lined up in a row, and the options are easy to find. You can trigger images and view them on the monitor. Then, you can take screenshots of these and change your shutter speed. It also allows you to change the time-lapse, so you get different exposures combinations.
Depending on what you’re trying to do, you can choose the ISO value, shutter speed, white balance, or exposure. The aperture can even be adjusted.
Something that we were surprised to find is that you can use different cameras. It will show you the metadata and all the details. This means you can process the images with the information you need.
The settings are not complex. Of course, if you know more about photography, then the entire process will be easier for you. You can change the looks of the app and how you view it by default. You can also automatically preview photos for a set amount of time. Finally, you can snap an image with a trigger on your keyboard that you set up ahead of time.
Sometimes, photo apps are simply too complex for the average user. Other times, they are so simple that they don’t really offer any advantages over manual methods. We find that this application is good for a mix of users. You can have fun, yet you won’t be overwhelmed with the features. The best part is being able to draw images from multiple sources.
