FAQs / Supported Cameras (Sofortbild 1.5)

Sofortbild is a Mac app for tethered shooting with Nikon DSLR cameras. Each camera model has to be actively supported by Sofortbild, so only models listed below will work. In addition, Sofortbild requires a ‘library’ from Nikon as foundation. Certain lower-end and older models lack this Nikon library.

Requires macOS High Sierra (10.13.x), macOS Sierra (10.12.6) or Mac OS X El Capitan (10.11.6).

The following models are not yet supported, but may be in the future:

  • N/A
Older cameras can no longer be supported, as Nikon does not provide libraries for those models that are compatible with recent macOS versions.

Missing Models

If a certain Nikon camera model isn’t listed here, it’s probably too new and will be added to one of the lists, soon. Feel free to make us aware of this fact.

Other Brands

Sofortbild only works with Nikon cameras. Other brands like Canon, Sony, Olympus, … are not supported at this time.
