Video: Adjusting the camera settings with the CamRanger on a laptop

Let's do a test shot. There it is, downloaded. I could see what I got. It's looking pretty good. Now note here, I can change things. I can set it to auto focus single.

Adjusting the camera settings with the CamRanger on a laptop

Let's do a test shot. There it is, downloaded. I could see what I got. It's looking pretty good. Note you can zoom to 200% to really take a look at the details. And it looks just a tad soft to me, so I'm going to adjust the focus. Now note here, I can change things. I can set it to auto focus single. I'll take that back to a 100%. Take a look at the new image. Let's zoom in. That's looking better. And I can change my auto focus method from a single auto focus, or I could use continuous, or automatic.

I'm going to use single here just to set this once. You'll also see controls here for just about everything else. So, let's take a look. I could adjust the shutter speed. I need two hundredth here for my Nikon. But let's go ahead and open up that f-stop a little bit to f14, and I could adjust the ISO. I'll make that a little less sensitive since I'm letting in more light. Now, I've turned on the modeling lights to make this a little bit easier, since I'm using Liveview to focus I don't have the powerful flashes to give me all the light that I'm using.

So I've put the modeling lights just to give me a little bit of extra light here so I could check critical focus. Within the app I like the fact here that it's really easy to work. So I can step in here, and adjust my focus. And you note there that it's actually adjusting the camera. Now I'm doing pretty far amount here, let's take it back. And I can even click to focus, moving my focal point around on the image. So this makes it really easy to precisely target. Let's go back here to the Data View. Note I can adjust my white balance here. I'll switch to an auto.

And let's do a capture. And there's my new image. That's a little blocky as it loads the first preview, but as you zoom in, you see here, nice and sharp. And by clicking to precisely set my focus there on the details in the basket. I was really able to take control and bring that detail out. That's really looking good. Note here, I've got the ability to do some exposure compensation. There we go. Let's try another Capture. And since the bright light was tricking the camera sensor I push that a little bit just to blow it out a bit more.

That's looking really good. And you'll note, you even get the ability in live view, if you want, to see an actively updating histogram. That's looking really good. As you're working, you'll also notice nice details, like the status of your battery. We've been shooting all day here, so it's definitely running down and I can see the connected camera. I also get an estimate as to how many shots I have left on that memory card. So as I continue to shoot, the counter goes down, but I don't have to actually worry about running out of card space because I wasn't paying attention. I can also tell what type of files I'm writing here and really get a good idea of what's going on in the camera.

Now let's go ahead and switch back to Raw for just a second, and I'll take a RAW-only capture. And you'll note that the RAW file does actually download. The RAW file takes a bit longer to download, but the good news is, is it does come down. So if you want the speed of shooting, stick with JPEG. But if you want the maximum image quality, go for RAW, and you can see what's coming down. If you shoot RAW plus JPEG, it's the JPEG that's going to download automatically for the quicker preview.
