Hi,

i work with a XE-1.

Is there any way to work tethered with XE-1 or any other X camera ?

Does Fuji work on it ?

Thank you.

There was a thread on this yesterday:  http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3590647#forum-post-52697063

You can use an Eye-Fi card to transfer images, but Fuji cameras are not capable of tethered shooting.

Ok, thank you

Maybe it's time to think about a petition.

In the future, if a high-res Fuji comes out with tethered options, I'll sell my a7r... haha. It would have to have exposure stops down to 8 seconds in half-stops like the Leica M series does so that I could use it for still life long and short exposures. That is the biggest reason I don't bother. I very much dislike using the Sony and hope for something with its sensor in a similar-sized body, but something much more robust.

Would love the X-Pro 1 to be able to shoot tethered for previews. Been clunking around with my Nikon D800 for too long. Even simple photographs like this one are a pain to get right because the live view is poor and when tethered to a computer, I cannot always see what is going on.

I've replied in a similar thread to this somewhere as did another member that the poor man's solution for now is to output HDMI cable to a monitor/TV screen and you can at least see instant playback of your shot...Works for me in a small controlled studio space....works with my XE1 and 2.
