Support for Nikon 1 V3

Post by rmorfk » 23 Oct 2017, 08:17

The Nikon 1 V3 is supported by Nikon Camera Control Pro 2. In particular, the power zoom lenses 10-30mm PD and 10-100mm 4.5-5.6 PD can be remotely controlled. Nikon offers a SDK for the V3 which allows all the controls, that Camera Control Pro 2 (CCP2) provides. I would very much welcome, if qDslrdashboard could also offer all these controls on IOS and Android devices. CCP2 only runs on Windows and Macos systems. A smartphone or tablet is much handier.
I am using a V3 together with the 10-100mm PD zoom lens stabilized on a Zhiyun Crane gimbal. The remote control of the zoom lens is essential, if we do not want to disturb the stabilization. This 10 times zoom lens is very special: zooming and focusing are essentially noiseless and the length and center of gravity of the lens does not change during zooming. Thus, the stabilization does not suffer during zooming. The video quality has been recognized by the Nice Lady Productions

but the special interest of the 10-100 PD zoom has remained unnoticed by the community.
