"Tethering Software"


Hazel Green, US
          

I have been looking to getting into tethering for some of my photography but have become very confused with what is available and best. One of the first features I would like, or think I do, is a software that records both to my in camera memory card and my computer. Second, I need something that is very reliable and doesn't have a tendency to fail in front of a client. I would very interested in knowing what you suggest as a full feature software package.

Thanks,
Randy

Hi:

I use Nikon's camera Control Pro 2. It allows saving both in the camera and to a file of your choice on your computer. If your camera has live view capability, you can see that on your computer. No need to peer through the view finder. Most of the camera controls can be adjusted with the key board.

And it isn't all that expensive. You can get a free trial from the Nikon store.

Give it a try.

Ditto for Camera Control Pro 2, although it's not wireless and it takes about 30 seconds from shutter release for the image to show up in the auto-import folder of Lightroom. I'm using two 15-foot USB extenders with no problem.

Many are using the Eye-Fi wireless SD card but last I checked they do not have a CF version for your D3x and do not wotk wirh SD-to-CF adapters.
