focus and shoot without touch

9 months 3 weeks ago #728571 by genik
Hi, i own a D7000 and i wish to take pics without touching the camera. I not only wish to press the shutter, but i also wish to make focusing adjustments without touching the lens (AFS Micro Nikkor 105mm 1:2.8G) Is this possible?The ending goal of what i wish to do, is to do Focus Stacking with the photos i will shoot, so i do  not want to touch the camera/lens at all.

There are a few possibilities on the market. I use a software solution
that will take over controls of the combo after configuration.

Im wanted to get a free app for my quest... Nikon's Camera Control Pro seemed that it would be fine to use, but i have this MacOS issue? What can i do? Perhaps the earlier version would work with an older OS, but i cant find Camera Control Pro ver1 to check it out?
