Hello
What software do you use on set for clients to view? Not necessarily for processing, just shooting tethered to a monitor or laptop.

Thanks!

I tether to a TV on set. Depending on the camera you use Lightroom is a very nice tool for tether and edit.

On a budget you may also want to look at DYIPhotoBits

I used to tether to a TV a while back.. Hmmm... Canon 10D days? Anyway, on occasion, a client wold love what was on the TV and then see the actual file on the computer monitor and say they liked the TV better. LOL I would have to crank up the contrast and saturation to get closer to the TV.

The same thing often used to happen in the Polaroid days.. Clients wanted the contrast and color they saw on the Polaroid when they got the film back.

Sorry you don't like the forums. There are some top pros here that have given great info. It was never originally meant to be a technical forum, just a business forum, but I added this tech section in hopes to draw more activity. It worked a bit, but it's still slow here. People want to argue about Mac vs. PC and Canon vs. Nikon and we don't allow that here.

(to everyone else, this is in response to a critique of the forums elsewhere)

Oh man, I'll hang around. I just expected things to be a little faster pace here.

Sorry if I came off a little harsh but it is pretty slow when the first reply to a question happens almost a year after the question was posted. Don't you agree?

I'm sure there are a great bunch of people here with far more knowledge than myself

I'm not an iPad guru but I would imagine Eye-Fi would work, no?

Eye-Fi Pro supports RAW. It's going to be slow but it's supported.

Yes RAW is supported through ShutterSnitch but then you have to offload them through iTunes or FPT them to your computer.

Huh? Ad-Hoc with the Eye-Fi to the Computer works with RAW or JPG

At least that's what the documentations says

I'm going to assume everyone knows about Capture 6's iPad integration, but isn't mentioning it because new releases of Capture are traditionally laughable until the 2nd or 3rd patch? Very Happy

OK, we're talking about 2 different things here. Remember that the iPad can't run that ad-hock connection, shuffling images off the iPad and another app that's receiving the Eye-Fi images simultaneously. Maybe soon, but not yet.

It's so easy to jump on the bandwagon wanking about C1 releases. I ran C1 6.0 without issue, have 6.1 installed now and haven't had to bother getting the 6.1.1 release yet because it's working fine.

I have downloaded, but not shot with, the FREE Capture Pilot. But I'd be willing to be that it's fine. There are 6 reviews on the iTunes site. 5 Rave about it.

It's so easy to be anonymously sarcastic on the internet...

6 reviews seems like a shallow pool of experience to draw from.

I went months with 5.1.2 without seeing it crash and when I boasted this to a room full of freelance techs it sounded like the laugh track from an 80's sitcom. Since then I've got plenty of stories to tell.

I just found a solution for this exact problem ( for me at least )
Last week I had a still life shoot with a lot of small changes to the composition, client available for comment only through e-mail etc.
Hadn't shot tethered for a while, but found this combo:
( using PC, Windows 7, Nikon D2x...)
FastPictureViewer ( to allow me to shoot tethered with my D2x )
Bibble 5 Pro , which doesn't "allow" tethered shooting, but has the ability to show "updates" to folders you're shooting into ( hit F5 to refresh )
I've been using downloaded trial versions of both programs, but it works.
Bibble is a sort of RAW processing, though I'm using camera raw for this in the end.
Works like a charm...
But a lot depends on the system you're working with...
