Stefan Hafeneger Sofortbild

Who said great software has to be expensive? Despite its funny name, Stefan Hafeneger’s Sofortbild (Free) lets users of Nikon’s DSLR cameras control their rigs right from their Macs, making it a godsend for portrait photographers, or anyone else who needs immediate access to their shots—we’ve used it ourselves to cover events live, and it works flawlessly.

Compatible with the vast majority of Nikon’s DSLRs—and frequently updated for new models—this app automatically transfers the images you capture to your hard drive, can automatically import captured images to Aperture or iPhoto, and lets you view and change shutter speed, aperture, white balance, ISO, image format and size, and matrix mode, all without touching the camera.
