The professional's solution for remotely controlling your Konica Minolta Maxxum/Dynax 7D from Lightroom 3 for Windows via USB cable.

Plug-in in action

The plug-in can only transfer images from Konica Minolta Maxxum/Dynax 7D but cannot control the camera remotely. You can press the shutter button in Lightroom window but it will not release shutter of the camera. This is a Konica Minolta Maxxum/Dynax 7D firmware limitation. Plug-in can work with JPEG and RAW files (MRW).
RAW+JPEG mode is also supported.
