Tethered Shooting means you can link your DSLR directly to your PC. Once you shoot a photo the software will directly transfer to photo onto your PC and show it on your monitor. It can also remote taking photo from your Computer.
However the original Nikon Software "Camera Control Pro V2" is only for limited Nikon Model.
(The Camera Control Pro Software has many features to control the camera remotely)
I am a D3100 user this model is not supported by the Nikon Camera Control Pro software,so I look around and found this FREE software "DIYPhotobits.com Camera Control" you can remotely (USB link) shuttle release and the camera take the photo and transfer automatically to the computer and show on your 21" monitor! (But it only show the JPG file not the NEF file.) so if you take RAW + JPG the software will shown the JPG photo on screen. Sweet! (As it is Free! )
