Stop Motion Pro supports Nikon DSLRs including those with Live View.
We are currently not adding any new Nikon cameras to the compatibility lists.
(Note, DSLR cameras work with Eclipse only, consider using a webcam with Eclipse SD)
Stop Motion Pro can control some Nikon DSLRs directly, allowing control over exposure and focus. It is possible to capture JPEG images from compatible Nikon DSLRs.
Compatible Live view Nikon cameras:
The D3000 and D3100 cannot be used, as remote control is not enabled by Nikon.
A note about Live view. After a period of time (half an hour plus) of live view being on, a temperature sensor in the camera may switch, disconnecting the live view. The time depends on the camera and the environmental conditions. We recommend setting a short delay time in turning the live view off, to keep the camera as cool as possible.
Some cameras have a communications setting in the camera menus and this should be set to “Normal” or “PC Connection” not “PTP” or “PTP/Printer”. Please check this setting is set correctly if you camera shows “Busy” when you try to connect it to your PC.
