    Two questions for the price of one.

    1) Are there any (cheaper) alternatives to the Nikon Control software which allows remote control, via USB, of a Nikon DSLR?

    2) Has anyone experience with the ScopeTek digital microscope camera? It looks like a World War 2 German grenade, and attaches to an eyepiece tube, or photo port. I bought one for use with a microscope, as I do not like using my D200. Vibrations are an issue (partially cured with a remove release), and I would rather have a dedicated camera. But the software is not documented: what precisely are gain and target? And I see off artifacts in the background, not visible in D200 images. White balance is hard to achieve. Anyone had success with these devices?

    You could give Breeze a try, it costs $95

    Thanks. I'll check out the reviews, but it looks like it could be just the job.

    Just in case anyone is interested, it looks as if MICAM provides a much better alternative to the Scope Tek software:

    Can you tell me if the Breeze's software is as good as the Nikon control software?

    No idea, and "as good" is a subjective thing anyway, Why not download it & give it a test - it has a free 15 day trial.
