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 in DSLR Remote Pro for Windows 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 DSLR Remote Pro for Windows'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 for Windows.

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 for Windows. More details...
Please note: this technique will only work with a Canon DSLR that supports live view display e.g. Canon EOS 40D, Canon EOS 50D, Canon EOS 60D, Canon EOS 70D, Canon EOS 100D/Rebel SL1, Canon EOS 700D/Rebel T5i, Canon EOS 650D/Rebel T4i, Canon EOS 600D/Rebel T3i, Canon EOS 550D/Rebel T2i, Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i, Canon EOS 450D/Rebel XSi, Canon EOS 1200D/Rebel T5, Canon EOS 1100D/Rebel T3, Canon EOS 1000D/Rebel XS, Canon EOS 5D Mark III, Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Canon EOS 6D, Canon EOS 7D, Canon EOS-1D X, Canon EOS-1D C, Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III, Canon EOS-1D Mark IV or Canon EOS-1D Mark III

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.
