Remote control of Nikon D200, and microscope cameras

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.
