Ok I'm now pulling my hair out with this problem, I've just paid another £50.00 ($100) to upgrade from HU Ver 2.0, to Ver 3.0 as I'm running Vista.
The camera (S2) is set to iee1394 shooting mode and when switched on the Fuji S2 driver appears in windows device manager, however when I select camera or PC shooting in HU a window pops up stating it cannot connect to the camera.
I'm running HU on a laptop with an Intel core 2 T7200 @ 2.00GHz, 2.00GHz processor, 2 GB Ram and 400Gb hard drive with Windows Vista Premium.
I may have an event coming up shortly and it's vital that I get this sorted as soon as possible, therefore any advise would be greatly appreciated.
Hey, Philip in Tallahassee, Fl. I am trying to connect my S2 to my laptop and I came across your efforts of doing the same. I signed up for Nikonians and am a new member only for connection with you. Did you ever solve your issues? I can't figure out how to snap the picture. I get 1394 shooting on the back of the camera but I can't pull the trigger. Could you give a newbie a little boost? I could really use it.
I never really found a satisfactory solution, the firewire connection was unreliable and constantly disconnected, Therefore I eventually gave up shooting tethered and decided to print and preview from the CF card instead.
however I've since upgraded to an S5, and find the USB connection to my laptop is far more reliable.
Hi guys, I shot with my S2 pro through firewire attached to a laptop using V2, I think that the key to this problem is Vista and probably Win 7. I have a laptop, old and creaky laptop, that is still running XP Pro, because Vista and Win 7 just do not work with older kit. I have a Mini DV Panasonic camcorder that works just fine with XP but can't connect to Premiere in Win 7, I think that this is what is causing the problem with the S2, its a great camera but a little long in the tooth and as with a lot of other kit no one has bothered to consider if it will work with newer Operating systems, my advice would be to either make your computer dual boot with XP adn vista/Win 7 or buy a second hand laptop for around £200 or so with XP on it and use that. I know its a pain, but at least you do not need a super spec PC to run the tethered shooting simply because of the age of the Fuji. Good luck people
