>There are a several major functions that can be handled

>The easiest problem is simply viewing images immediately after

>function. This is also a place where shooting connected to a
>computer works and the LR4 solution and many others should
>work. The D800E has an ethernet connection so you can simply
>cable connect from the camera to your computer.

>The most advanced situation is controlling the camera
>remotely. Nikon Camera Control Pro 2 allows you to control
>most camera settings from a computer - as well as supporting
>Live View. You can change shutter speed, aperture, exposure
>mode, hue and WB. In this situation you have the benefit of a
>large monitor for precise focus, examining exposure, etc. The
>monitor also can be calibrated so you get more precise color
>than on the LCD which is not color managed or calibrated.
>With this solution you still need to transmit images to the
>computer via wireless or whatever approach is desired.

D800/e does not come with an ethernet connection port - D4 does, maybe you have confused that? D800 has a USB3 port
