I've been using this app with my D5100 and a 27" iMac, and the combination makes for a powerful digitizing workstation. I've used it for several weeks now, and it has worked like a swiss watch in terms of reliability. I provides me with a wide range of control over my camera, I've even adapted a script to do automated time-lapse shooting of several hundred images. The software is awesome, especially at the price. Highly recommended.

I have been searching high & low for a Mac application to shoot tethered with my Nikon D7000 & my favorite macro lens: Tamron 90mm SP. After a little troubleshooting to get the software to connect properly with my D7000 (hint: remove the memory cards from the camera) I was able to focus my motor-less Tamron lens using the on-screen focus adjustment buttons, not having to touch the camera once my composition is set is a great enhancement to my macro photography. If you've seen the joke that is Nikon's own Camera Control 2 for Mac, you will be very pleased with this software at half the price. This is the software Nikon should have written for Mac users. Perhaps Francis can get Nikon to buy if from him and retire early! ;) I'm looking forward to how this great application develops. I need to give props to Francis for being very responsive to my support requests and working diligently to get me shooting with this software.

I'm using this app with the Canon 7D, and it works great. All of the controls such as, aperture, shutter speed, ISO ect. work great for controlling the camera. The only problem you may run into, is the programming commands for the camera. I wanted to make a timelapse, and for that you need a script that automatically controls the camera to take pictures. There is an example script on the smart shooter website, but to make that work you need to save it as a text file. I tried all kinds of applications (on my mac), ie text editor, micorsoft word, but after a few hours of fiddleing around, and thinking I wasted my money on this app, I found the AppleScript Editor, which was already installed on my mac, was the only thing that worked to allow me to save a script as a text file, and load it into Smart Shooter. So in the end, this was definitely worth the money.

This is my second review I realize but rarely do you get support for anything let alone programming support from the author. I thought version 1 was ALMOST perfect, cheaper and better than everything else I tried like Nikon camera control pro for example. This interface is easy but powerful - just like apple....I had one problem that I couldn't figure out and even had apple techs across the country working on it. The solution was as simple as emailing the author who wrote it into the program for me! Support is great, author has contacted ME a few times updating on the progress even. If you are like me support of a product is a key issue and this one gets 5 stars for that alone- the product just happens to be fantastic too.
