Remote Camera software for a99 and Adobe Bridge for ghetto tethering
I got a job for location shoot where I need the clients feedback, so I messed around with the Remote Camera software and Adobe CS6 to see if I can get a decent tethering workflow.
Basically I leave Adobe Bridge open to a hot folder and in Remote Camera I select that folder as the "Save To" folder.
As I'm shooting tethered the images are collecting there quite fast about 2-3 seconds for RAWs. This is on a 3 year old Asus Laptop though mind you I upgraded the hard drive to an SSD, so that is sure to increase the speed that Bridge is reading the file.
The camera is sitting on a tripod and the Remote Camera software allows me to fully control the a99 from the laptop. Which is great for product shots because I can shoot with client beside me, and discuss as the images come up.
Also, I'm tethering with a 15' long USB mini cable so the data is traveling a bit of distance, with no need for an amplifier to get the data through ok.
Just thought I'd share this in case anyone was wanting a working tethering work flow, it's pretty efficient and using stuff that's already available.
Now if only Sony would get off their ass and allow the a77 to tether, I would be eternally grateful.
