As Nikon had yet to update their Camera Control Pro 2 software to work with Snow Leopard, I went looking for an alternative to communicate with my new D3x and my laptop. After installing Sofortbild, I tethered my camera, and fired up Sofortbild. It instantly recognized my D3x and displayed the current settings. I don't use iPhoto, nor LIghtroom. I manage my files through Adobe Bridge, and set the location of captured images from Sofortbild's Preferences window accordingly. Through the Sorfortbild interface, I was easily able to change my settings as needed and take a shot. The captured image displayed beautifully and quickly. I clicked the green maximize button, and brought my image to full screen. I then tried out the Bracketing feature, and that worked flawlessly. Much more control and flexibility than what is built into the camera. I used the software for the rest of the day (I was actually testing during a live shoot) and it only crashed once. I shoot in RAW which yields, from this camera, 24.3 MP. Perhaps that somehow had something to do with my one crash. The only display issue I ran into is if I chose to shoot in the TIF format. I could take a picture, but Sofortbild's display screen would stay black. Changing the setting back to RAW on my D3x then resulted in normal behavior in Sofortbild. The only three suggestions I would make: 1. Remember last screen position/size upon relaunch of app. 2. I realize Sofortbild isn't a file viewer, but it would be great to be able to view a previously taken image. 3. Fix the TIF display issue Overall, I'm extremely pleased with this app, and intend to use it on all of my shoots and see no reason to go back to Camera Control Pro 2. (Which, as of today, is still not updated) Great job!
