I'm sure most here that use PhotoKey Pro are using a more professional camera than myself (a Nikon D3000). However, for those who do use Nikon cameras (not necessarily just the D3000, but most Nikon's in general) and would like to tether your camera to your PC/Laptop for use with PhotoKey, this can be a problem. I came across a useful utility to transfer images directly from the camera to the computer immediately after the shot has been taken. The Transfer tool that comes with the camera isn't 'automated', you have to manually force a transfer after the shot is taken.
Using Nikontrol 3k, the images are immediately transferred from the camera to a folder on your computer. Then, using PhotoKey 4 Pro, you have instant access to the picture. This makes it an ideal companion for PhotoKey 4 Pro users that are using Nikon cameras.
Oh, forgot one other thing... It's free! Check it out here: http://www.savy.ro/category/nikontrol-news
Just incase you are wondering, no I did not develop this app. Just found it as the only way to automate transfers with a D3000 (The D3000 isn't supported by the Nikon SDK).
Just out of curiosity, I've added a poll to this post to see what type of cameras folks are using to get an idea of how many folks may be interested in this tool.
I hope this is helpful to others,
