files to hard drive

by caretaker360 » Tue Aug 23, 2011 2:27 pm

I have been making progressively larger and larger pano with a Nikon D7000,Panogear and Papywizard. I am now at a point where I need to record the imaged directly to PC (tethered).
The search did not turn up anything, so I ask here.
Thanks,
C

Hi C,

What is the size of the memorycard inside your Nikon D7000 ? I really think it is easier to go for the biggest available memory card, or at least big enough for 1 panorama. Then a imagetank and two cards might be a sollution.

The D7000 can hold two SD cards. 128 gb being I think the current limit. So 256 gb is a 600$ option :-)

And what card do you have at the moment?

600$ is indeed an expensive option, on the other hand, if it solves the problem, it is at least a straighforward solution
How much space do you need for 1 panorama?

There is this SD card called eyefi which allows you to FTP-files over wifi. Having a laptop that runs like a FTP-server might be a practical solution, just hope it is fast enough....http://uk.eye.fi/ If only it would work to have one good sized memorycard in one slot and the eyefi in another it might well work.

There is a version of Papywizard for Maemo OS on the Nokia N800/N810 Internet Tablets - V 2.1.22, not officially released yet I think - that allows you to set a parameter to pause shooting after every N shots.

It could be made available for other OS platforms if Frederic or someone else had the time to build the packages I guess.

Could this be a viable low cost solution? You could then swap lower capacity cheaper cards during the shoot.
......

If you are determined to use a tethered solution then I think it can be done using Breeze Systems' NK Remote:
