Remote Control software for Nikon DSLR (besides Capture)

    Is there a reasonable remote control software available for a
    D200(/D700) other than Nikon's own Capture? In an ideal world there'd be
    a little bluetooth dongle on the camera and each shot shows up on the
    laptop for inspection.

    I have used Capture with a D70 and while it was alright (it was cool to
    be able to adjust every setting on the camera from a computer), I just
    don't want to encourage Nikon, and I really only need to be able to
    download the image, I might as well control the camera with my fingers
    as usual.

    If a D700 comes into the mix, it would be super cool to do live view on
    a laptop screen. I guess that'll rule out any 3rd party options... does
    Capture even do that? Or is it as simple as connecting a cable?

    IIRC the D3/300/700 all have HDMI output from Lv.
    You don't need even a laptop, just a screen.

    Thanks.

    Oh yeah right, Camera Control now... at least that doesn't offend my
    mission to discourage Nikon from making proprietary raw converters &
    such. Of course they split it & double the price though :) $160

    And the wireless thing costs $700

    -sounds like you need an actual network with a wireless transmitter not
    just a laptop with wireless receiver?
