Over the years SharpCap has grown from a webcam only tool into a much more comprehensive capture tool capable of directly controlling many astronomy oriented and other cameras.
I initially wrote SharpCap because I got fed up with the awkward control over camera settings in programs like Amcap, Open Video Capture, etc.
The main goals were to be easy to use when observing, and to help avoid mistakes like capturing with the wrong resolution or camera settings, or overwriting an existing file accidentally.
