Get tethered camera control using Entangle for Ubuntu and Fedora

Control your digital camera or a DSLR from your computer

Entangle is a free and open source software that lets you be able to control your digital camera or a DSLR from your computer. In other words, it’s called tether shooting digital cameras!

Using Entangle, you can take a shot, tweak settings, and view the shot all from the comfort of your PC.

To begin with, you first need to connect your camera up via USB cable to your Linux PC. Next, you need to launch Entangle, and start taking photos – it’s that easy.

Apart from taking photos, Entangle allows you to tweak the settings of the photo shot including aperture, shutter speed, and ISO settings. Also, no longer fiddling with the little thumbnail images in the camera. Entangle shows all the images on your large computer monitor.

Hi there! I’m Kiran Kumar, founder of FOSSLinux.com. I’m an avid Linux lover, and enjoys hands-on with new promising distros. Currently, I’m using Linux Mint as a daily driver and run several other distros such as Fedora, Solus, Ubuntu, Debian, and some new ones on my test PC and virtual machines. I have a day job as an Engineer, and this website is one of my favorite past time activities especially during Winter ;). When I’m not writing for FOSSLinux, I’m seen biking and hiking on scenic trails. Hope you enjoy using this website as much as I do writing for it. Feedback from readers is something that inspires me to do more, and spread my love for Linux. If you find time, drop me an email or feedback from ‘Contact’ page. Or simply leave a comment below if you found this article useful. Have a good day!
