Capture Controls

On the left side of the panel are controls used to capture images, start live view, record movies, and initiate Autofocus. You can find out more about these operation by reading the Getting Started section.


Exposure Controls

The exposure controls provide quick access to the camera controls used most frequently when adjusting image exposure. Most of the controls are sliders that you adjust by using the mouse - when a control is selected, the left and right arrows can also be used to make adjustments.


Camera Control Item Tabs

There are a number of tabs on the Camera Control Panel that allow adjusted and viewing many of the controls for the camera. Only the tabs that are applicable for the camera that is connected will be displayed. Notice that some controls like HDR Mode and White Balance are displayed in bold and that if you place the mouse over these controls you will get the hand pointer icon -  this indicates that if you click on the item it will open the appropriate panel from the Main Options Window for adjusting that setting.


Status Information

In the Status Information area, brief messages on the state of the program are displayed as well as the current battery level. Warning messages are displayed in and alert you to a potential issue.
