I have a D3x and am trying to figure out my various options for tethering with live view (i.e., the live view appears on the laptop screen while shooting tethered). I own Capture One 5.0 and Lightroom (2.0, I think), as well as Nikon View NX and Capture NX. I have shot tethered before with a Phase One back and C1, but now I'm trying not just to shoot tethered, but to have a tethered live view image displayed on screen.
As far as I can tell, while all of the programs I mentioned above support tethering (i.e., being able to shoot with the camera connected to the computer and have the image transfered to the computer and viewable after it's shot) none of those programs support tethered live view as far as I can tell, but please correct me if I'm wrong.
So I downloaded a trial of Nikon's Camera Control 2, which does allow for tethered live view -- I can see the live view image from the camera on my laptop screen and focus it, change exposure, etc. Which is great, except for the fact that I only really need this capability for a couple of upcoming still life projects, which is not what I normally shoot, meaning it's not really worth it to me to pay $180 for Camera Control 2.
So are there any other less expensive software options for tethered live view with the D3x?
