Auto Bracketing

DSLR Remote has a very flexible auto bracketing function which is ideal for high dynamic range (HDR) images and for product shots and interior shots without using sophisticated lighting. DSLR Remote Pro for Windows can automatically vary exposure using the shutter speed or aperture to take auto bracketed sequences of up to 15 shots.

This photo was taken inside a church and shows how a series of images taken using the auto bracketing feature can result a blended exposure with far more detail than can be obtained using a single exposure. The single exposure loses detail in the roof due to under exposure and in the stained glass window due to over exposure. By blending the auto bracketed shots in an image editor it is possible to retain detail in both the roof and the window.

The blended exposure used the seven shots below which were taken using our camera control software's auto bracketing feature:

The photo was taken inside St Andrews Church, Sherborne St John, Hampshire, England using a Canon EOS 5D controlled from a laptop using DSLR Remote Pro. Similar results can be obtained using NKRemote and a Nikon DSLR.

Use DSLR Remote Pro for Windows to take the auto bracketed sequence and then automatically combine the images to create a single HDR image or tone mapped image using Photomatix Pro (purchased separately).

Focus Stacking

A simple and powerful technique for extending depth of field by taking a series of shots using different focus settings. This technique is useful for product photography, close-up and macro photography and landscapes. The taking of the shots is greatly simplified by running a script with DSLR Remote Pro. More details...
Please note: this technique will only work with Canon DSLRs that support live view display and can't be used with older models such as the original Canon EOS 5D.

Supported Cameras and Operating Systems

Please note: we cannot guarantee that every combination of camera model, firmware version and Windows version will work. If in doubt please download the free trial version and test it on your system before purchasing.
Windows XP: Microsoft ended support for Windows XP on April 8, 2014 and so we no longer test or support our software on WIndows XP. The information on Windows XP provided below is for information purposes only. DSLR Remote Pro for Windows should still work on WIndows XP but we strongly recommend that you upgrade to a more recent version of Windows.

The camera drivers can be downloaded from Canon's website.

Interface with other applications

DSLR Remote Pro for Windows also includes a DLL and a sample program (complete with C++ source code) which allows other applications to release the camera's shutter and adjust the shutter speed and aperture. This opens up many exciting possibilities such as movement or sound sensors being used to trigger the camera for taking wild-life shots with this remote capture tool.

Please see the online help pages for screenshots and a detailed description of what DSLR Remote Pro for Windows can do.
