Highlights of this release

Autoexport plugins

These are plugins which can be used to add different actions when photos are transferred. There can be multiple plugins active in the same time, for every plugin can be additionally assigned an image transformation action. For example you can upload resized photos with your overlay mark to yours facebbok page or dropbox folder.

Improved photo preview

The photo loading algorithm was totally rewrited, no longer camera codec is required for raw files and the raw files are loaded almost with the same speed like the jpgs. A notable feature of the preview is the zoom to focus point - if this feature is on when new photo is captured and it’s zoomed, the viewport automatically will move to the first focused point. For thumbnail can be activated an additional info panel where will be displayed the photo basic info and a histogram with over/under exposure indicator.



This feature was requested by a lot of users, some of them just want to hide the application source/name to prevent to be used by the competition or just remove some unused features from UI. This will add possibilities to customize application interface, specially the main window and the live view window. This feature’s purpose is to set which element to be visible or not and not to redesign the user interface itself. Taking in consideration the fact that the using of branding is no more linked to this site or to the name of digiCamControl, to get this feature there is an extra donation needed under "Branding" option.

User interface redesigned

User interface redesigned

For better usability some graphical elements were moved to newly added main menu, in this way it will be more easy to find and access some application features.


All digiCamControl installations can be upgraded to digiCamControl 2.0.0 release without losing your settings or session data. The installer will clear the application cache, so with the first start the application will recreate it, but this may take a few minutes.
