Best Monday to all.

Has anyone succeeded to send photos as they're shot to a folder inside their PC via Wifi.

I tried every possible method I could come across and the camera just fails to connect with the PC. So I am wondering if it is even possible.

Thank you.

You're welcome...

Re-thanks since it worked. I had to learn how to share a folder (in the most recent versions of Windows 10 it requires digging into the network settings and the services and the folder properties...). Another thing that I missed the first time around was that when the camera asked for my computer name, which exists and is DESKTOP_such and such, what was really needed was the IP address of my computer. Lost in translation ?

Now it works well actually. It is not hyper fast but I don't care really since I do just a few portraits. Product and macros aren't rushed affairs.

Even funner is that I can set LR to watch the shared folder. That's a good workflow.

Feels good.

Thanks again.

Back to my experiments on tethering.
