Support for Nikon Zfc?

Post by RoadRailer » Sun Aug 21, 2022 12:21 am

Will digiCamControl support the Nikon Z fc and Z 30 cameras? While not in the official digiCamControl list of supported cameras, from what I have read the Nikon Z fc and Nikon Z 30 are very similar to the Nikon Z 50 (the Z fc adds a few enhancements in a retro body, and the Z 30 drops the viewfinder).
  • When attempting to connect to the Z fc via WiFi, digiCamControl throws an error message that the Z fc is not supported.
  • When connected to the Z fc via USB, the live view is not functional and the live view button is disabled.

If I use qDslrDashboard instead of digiCamControl, live view functions as expected, so the Z fc seems capable of live view.

I appreciate the follow up! Here is some initial testing feedback in attempting to connect with the Nikon Z fc using digiCamControl 2.1.4.5:
  • via USB
    • Live view button is now available
    • Can start and view a live view session, but some exceptions are logged
  • via WiFi
    • Can now connect via WiFi
    • Live view button is available, but there are errors when attempting to start a live view session

App logs are attached for each scenario.
