Wireless / Tethered Shooting

Recommended Posts

Wondering if anyone has any experience using the Eyefi Mobi Pro 32GB card with X Pro-1.  My two main concerns with the Eyefi / X Pro - 1 combo are battery life and speed of transfer to desktop. 

 

Would appreciate any insight on this. I am hoping that the X Pro-2 will support tethered shooting but want to determine an alternative if not. 

 

Thanks!

I use the Eyefi Mobi Pro 32GB card with X Pro-1 all the time. But I only use it to transfer JPGs to iPad, not Raw to Desktop.  I can say that I do not think it kills battery life.  If I were to use it to do "tethered" shooting, I would still only transfer the JPGs wirelessly and rate/cull those, and then download the Raws later and match them up.  

 

If you would like a specific test done, I could possibly whip something up.

Hi,


 


I've got a Fuji Xpro 2 and I bought recently a Eyefi MobiPRO to transfert my photos directly to Lightroom (on my Desktop) when shooting in studio.


However, despite I've registered my card, downloaded the Keenai software, and having a connected message on my computer when my camera is on with a the Eyefi MobiPro inside, my photos don't upload in the "Keenai Photos" folder on my PC.


 


Could someone help?


Thanks in advance for your help

      Hi all,
      I downloaded the new version of Capture One 11.3, which supports tether shooting on GFX cameras, but I'm having some trouble getting things to work properly.
      When I connect up the GFX 50S to my MacBook Pro the software sees the camera and lets me trigger it remotely. But the RAW image that's transferred over only shows up as a VERY low res preview. The rest of the image is missing. The files have transferred, because I can see them on Finder and open them through Lightroom/Photoshop. Whatsmore, I can shoot Raw files to card and open them in Capture One 11.3 OK.
      Anyone else had any problems?

      Hello Everyone,
       
      I’m trying to use the FujiFilm phone app: CAM REMOTE with my X100F and while it works well for taking pictures, I am having difficulty with using it for video, which I would really like to do.
       
      While I can do a single focus, when taking pictures, by tapping the screen where I would like to focus, then taking the picture, this does not work in the video mode.
       
      In video mode, it seems the only option is for a continuous focus mode where it is always searching for focus — seems like it is looking for movement and focusing on that. Is there are a way to change it so that I can tap on my phone screen and set a single focus point and NOT have it continuously searching for focus (it makes quite a bit of noise).
       
      Any other apps (for iPhone or Mac) or advice on recording video (being able to control focus and start a video) remotely using the x100f, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone!

      I just want to make sure I'm doing this correctly and getting everything I can out of this software. Having to purchase an extra plugin and opening different windows just to take a picture makes this feel like something's not right.  I did watch the instructional video but it sort of stops right at the point where you start using the software.  I guess aside from the tether program acting completely disconnected from Lightroom, I can't get focus to work.
       
      I'm on LR CC and have purchased the Fuji Tether Plugin Pro v 1.602.  My XT-2 is on FW 2.10. I open LR and start a new tethered session; File > Tethered Capture > Start new Tethered Capture.  I get a control window that pops up once it recognizes my camera and I can take pictures with the 'shutter' button.  These photos show up in my Library in LR.  
       
      I can also go to my menu bar and select Show Fuji Tether Plugin Pro.  This brings up a window which, by default, is on Camera (USB) on the left and Preview on the right.  This view does absolutely nothing. I can select PC from the menu on the left which also at first does nothing until I select LIVE VIEW on the right.  Now I can see my camera and make some exposure adjustments.  So, when I want to view what my camera sees, I should not use the menu that says Camera and instead use PC.
       
      What It seems I can not do is use the AF/MF Settings.  Once I turn on Focus Area, I can click in my frame to designate a focus area but that doesn't actually tell my camera to focus.  When I click on my shutter button, nothing happens. I can not take a picture with the AF/MF Settings turned on.  
       
      In the Preferences for Fuji Tethered Plugin Pro, there's an option to "Specify action of clicking on the Live View window". The options are Move Focus Area, Instant AF, and Instant AF and Shoot. The first one is the only one that results in a proper action.
       
      If I exit out of the Fuji Tethered Plugin Pro and just use the built in LR capture tool, my camera will focus as expected.  
       
      Please let me know what things I'm getting wrong. All I want to do is see a large view of my subject, click to focus, and take a picture. I've spent too much time and money trying to make this work.

      Unable to connect my GFX 50s wirelessly to PC/Phone. App works fine with XT2 but will not connect to GFX 50S even after resetting both camera and app.  Any suggestions/help welcome.
       
      Thanks

      Just got an X-T10 and looking for a way to shoot tethered to Capture One 9 on a Mac. 
      Noticed some old posts from awhile back but figure there must be something in the works. I understand it's more of a street camera but looking into it's capabilities to replace my Canon. 
       
      I don't use Light Room but will if I have to set up a Hot Folder or whatever.
       
      Thx.
