"D50 connected via IEEE 1394"


US
          

Hi all, sorry for this question but I would like to know if is possible to connect my D50 to my laptop via IEEE 1394 maybe using an adapter USB to 1394?.
I'm asking this because when I use Nikon Capture being my camera connected to my laptop via USB I have to wait for about 8 second to show the pic that I took in my laptop, resolution is Large Fine.
Thanks for your Help

It sounds like you only have USB 1.1 not 2.0. You can get a PC card (PCMCIA) USB 2.0 adapter.

PC Card and PCMCIA are two entirely different things. PCMCIA is a 16-bit format (equivalent to the old ISA bus on a PC) and will only support USB 1.1. PC Card is a 32-bit format (equiv to PCI) and will support USB 2.0.
You cannot put a PC Card into a PCMCIA slot but you can do the opposite.

Going back to the original question. I doubt that you could use a IEEE1394 -> USB adapter. I'm not sure such a thing actually exists but if they do a card reader woul probably be more likely to work then direct connection of the camera.

My suggestion would be to copy the images to the hard drive either from the camera or (better option) via a card reader then once they are on the hard drive open and manipulate them.
