Greetings to all and hope somebody might be able to help solve an issue I am experiencing. At times I have been taking advantage of the tethering process: D700, the Sofortbild software an a USB cable. I turn the camera on and I'm good to go. Last week I had to send the D700 in for repairs and pulled out my backup D300. I do the exact same routine as I did with the D700 but it's not working. When the D300 is powered up I get the "PC" in the control panel and no connection to the software. I've tried bring up the software first & turning on the camera and turning on the camera first and then opening the software - same "PC" both times. There has to be a simple answer. Hopefully it is just a simple setting I've overlooked? It would be great to be up and running with the backup before my next event. No ETA yet for the D700. Thanks in advance.
Hi, I'm not conversant with the Sofortbild software as I use 'ControlMyNikon' with my D300.
I did have a quick look at the website for Sorortbild and noted the following comment;
"" Camera Support Sofortbild currently supports all newer Nikon digital single-lens reflex cameras including the high end models D4, D3s, D3x, D800, D800E, D700 and the consumer D300s, D7000, D90, D5100 and D5000.
Support for the older Nikon digital single-lens reflex cameras is optionally provided by a legacy feature.""
Is it a possibility that the D300 is in the 'older' category ?
Thanks for the observation Grahame. I too saw that statement. However, below that (towards the bottom of the page if I remember correctly) the D300 was listed as a supported DSLR. I had emailed the software manufacturer but never did hear back from them - that's when I turned to Nikonians. Maybe its time to switch software, even if on a trial basis and see what develops.
Ponger, you have made me ONE HAPPY CAMPER. Something I would never have though of & it fixed the situation with one little shift of a button. Thank you so very much for your sage observation. All is as it should be. Now if I can get my D700 back from having its major surgery I'll be a double happy camper. Thanks again & take care.
