 Tutorials on a few such software packages (ControlMyNikon, Canon EOS Utility, Nikon Camera Control Pro 2) can be found on our [[http://zerenesystems.com/cms/stacker/docs/tutorials/tutorialsindex|Zerene Stacker Tutorials]] page.  Other newer applications include [[http://dslrdashboard.info/|qDslrDashboard]] and [[http://dslrcontroller.com/|DSLR Controller]].  If you're particularly interested in going wireless to a tablet or smartphone, then [[http://camranger.com/|CamRanger]] makes a very slick integrated package. Tutorials on a few such software packages (ControlMyNikon, Canon EOS Utility, Nikon Camera Control Pro 2) can be found on our [[http://zerenesystems.com/cms/stacker/docs/tutorials/tutorialsindex|Zerene Stacker Tutorials]] page.  Other newer applications include [[http://dslrdashboard.info/|qDslrDashboard]] and [[http://dslrcontroller.com/|DSLR Controller]].  If you're particularly interested in going wireless to a tablet or smartphone, then [[http://camranger.com/|CamRanger]] makes a very slick integrated package.
