Copying images from camera/ Windows 11, no more MyFinePix


Recommended Posts

I have a new computer and as such no longer have MyFinePix Studio that I used and really liked for transferring files.  I would like to know how others are transferring images from camera to computer.  This link, https://digitalcamera-support-en.fujifilm.com/digitalcameraengpcdetail?aid=000005058&p=a062w0000035yOdAAI&wd=image+transfer&_ga=2.62903276.1570090719.1676656395-1876888618.1676656395

talks about how to do it with Windows 10 but I have Windows 11.  My old process was very simple, I'd connect the camera to the computer, start MyFinePix Studio and transfer the images to a well defined location (it would create the dated directory for me).  Now it seems harder, either remove the sd card, find my card reader, create a directory for the images and copy them from the sd card OR camera with the card in.

I would like to know what 'workflow' others are using and what suggestion people have for simplest possible transfer to well named directory.  I know this might not be a big deal for others, but the loss of MyFinePix transfer is an annoyance I've not yet resolved.

Thanks Jerry, but still not so much.  I keep my uploaded photos in D:\CameraUploads.  I don't want to keep them under C:\Pictures (or whatever default it's using).  I don't use OneDrive.  I just want to get the photos from my camera to D:\CameraUploads\<date>\ which is exactly what MyFinePix used to do for me.  Now I have to either futz with the different folder on the card and create the date folder myself for each upload.  I am pretty frustrated with both Fuji (for not making legacy MyFinePix downloadable) and MS for not providing 'Photos' a simple way to change the default upload destination beyond C:\Pictures.  I don't need or want a OneDrive cloud eco system.  I have a special drive for unprocessed photos that I want to keep using.  Not every picture is worthy of cloud storage, they need to get reviewed and processed. 

I guess I'll have to keep doing it manually.

    • HI Rufo, I have changed procedures.  I now use the colors space transform (CST) as my first node.  The CST is set up as follows: - Apply the CST effect to the first node. - Color Space is Rec 2020 - Input gamma is FLog - Output color space is Rec 709 - Output gamma is Gamma 2.4 All other nodes to grade the clip proceed the node that contains the color space transform. Hope this helps. Don

    • Interesting, and a bit subtle. I also think it'd be better to activate on a half press. But there seems to be good reasoning behind a number of other choices, so I wonder if there's a good reason behind this one and we're just not seeing it. To some degree IS goes on and off like AF does, but this is an exception, isn't it?
    • I couldn't find my manual so downloaded a PDF copy and did some searching.  From p146 of the manual, regarding Shooting Only stabilisation: "Image stabilization enabled only when the shutter button is pressed halfway (focus mode C) or the shutter is released." So it appears that the camera is 'working as intended' and that in AF-S the stabilisation mechanism kicks in only as you release the shutter. I think I would prefer it to activate on a half press, like it does in AF-C.
    • Sometime a short break can help to phrase things so that they do not sound annoying, Well that is the hope anyway, so here goes. Having that meter would be nice as well as having the histogram. But having them or not is a minor consideration in terms of what you are wanting to do because the app does not work with intervalometers. The only way you can get a time lapse sequence using the app is to manually click the shutter button, wait then click it again and so on. Even if the meter were there, you would need extremely fast reflexes to see and react to a lighting change by changing the settings and then going back to clicking the shutter button. Doing that for hours would be a feat indeed. The equipment you mention does this by analyzing several past images and predicting what settings to apply to the next incoming image. Right now the app has the live view which will tell you if an area is over or under exposed, but as far as what you are wanting to do without being able to connect the app to an intervalometer, well …
