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.
