Can a Computer Control the Camera Through USB?

    IMPORTANT: This article applies only to specific products and/or operating systems. Check Applicable Products and Categories for details.

    The Imaging Edge software can be used to control the camera through a USB connection. This is known as tethered shooting.

    For applicable models and download information, refer to the Imaging Edge support page.


    • There is no software update that can add tethered shooting to a camera model that doesn't initially support it.
    • Imaging Edge doesn't support 32-bit operating systems. If you are using a computer with a 32-bit operating system, use the Remote Camera Control application for Windows® or macOS™ operating systems.
