Nikon NX Tether is an official photoshoot management utility developed and released on the Windows OS platform by Nikon, makers of a wide array of optics and imaging products such as digital cameras. It supercharges the ability of photographers to control the shooting environment by tethering their digital cameras to the computer and transferring live views and captured photos in real time.

By managing the shoot directly from any modern PC, professional photographers can streamline their shooting events, collaborate with the production team and clients with greater ease, and quickly transfer the captured photos to a wide array of popular photo editors.

Main features

Once the connection between the PC and Nikon digital camera is established, photographers can take direct control over shooting controls, with remote access to a wide array of camera settings that can be managed with simple in-app control. This Nikon NX Tether desktop app also has built-in support for a large offering of secondary Nikon applications, including NX Studio, Nikon Image Space, Nikon Picture Control Utility 2, and several others.

Remote camera management is offered through a standardized user interface that mirrors the designs found on many modern Nikon cameras, enabling users to quickly identify all the tools and services that they can tweak during live shoots. The photo transfers are optimized for lightning-fast speeds, and photos in all supported formats (including RAW files) can be moved either individually or in large batches.


The compatibility with Nikon digital cameras extends across many device models with support for both wired and wireless connectivity. Wired connection is supported for all compatible devices, while wireless connectivity is only possible on camera models that either include built-in Wi-Fi transmitters (like Nikon Z9) or with models with an optional wireless WT-7 or WT-5 dongles (Nikon Z7, Z7 II, Z6, Z6 II, Z5, Z fc, Z50, D780, and Nikon D6).
