Remote shooting with LiveView from PC?
1

Hello fellow camera fanatics!

I am currently considering taking the plunge and buying a few of these Nikon 1-cameras (most likely J5) for a small Project.

However before i buy them I have something I need to know; so if any of you are knowledgeble in this area, I ask for your help.

The question is: Can these camera be operated from a PC to enable some sort of remote shooting, with Live View enabled? I know it can be done on Android/iOS, but is there some software for windows that can achieve the same thing? Over WiFi or USB doesnt matter, the only important thing is to get a live image on the PC-display, and activating the shutter via a mouse click. Preferably the settings should also be managable over this connection.

I know there is the Digicamcontrol software (seems to not support the 1-series) as well as Nikons Camera Control Pro 2, but maybe there are other solutions aswell?

Thank you kindly for any replies that can sort this out.

Best regards.
