FPV is a great tethering and picture viewer software but have you any kind of plan to develope a camera control module ? That would be great to have an all in one solution...

A whole camera control function is perhaps too ambitious for an image viewer and is probably best left to dedicated applications, given the number of different camera model and all the possible combination of settings, live view etc.

What was consideded already, and might appear in a future version, is a simple "Focus & Shoot" remote button.

Note that FastPictureViewer Professional works well in conjunction with dedicated thethering utilities, such as Nikon Camera Control Pro or the Canon EOS Utility: you can monitor the incoming folder using the program's tracking mode (T key) and it will grab and display the photos as they land to your hard-disk. This feature also work well with wireless accessories that transfer images to the computer over-the-air as they are shot.
