Nikon D850 connects with v 2.0.10RC2 but images missing on camera

Question

Hi,

I finally got my Nikon D850 to connect using the pre-release (March 2018) v 2.0.10 RC2. However, none of the images captured by BYN transferred to my camera's XQD card and SD card!! When I pressed the playback button on the camera, the only files were old ones plus some taken with APT. The BYN images ended up on the computer instead. This is useless as I need the RAW files on my camera's card too!

 

Please assist if you have a solution.

 

Thanks.

Cheers,

Richard

I do not believe that there is a solution. This has been discussed on this forum many times in the past and I believe that the conclusion was that the Nikon SDK, that BYN uses, does not support saving to the memory card AND downloading to the PC for all models. I edited my post because it was brought to my attention that what I said may be incorrect. It may be that this is just not a feature that BYN supports for all models. Sorry for the mis-communication.

I am curious why you feel that this is useless. I have used BYE for several years with my Canon cameras and have never felt the need to store BYE-generated images on the memory card. I use the downloaded image to adjust focus and evaluate during imaging and as long as I have the image on my PC I see no need to also store it in the camera.

It is true that some models do not support saving to card and pc at the same time; not sure it the 850D is one of those.

Did you select save to PC+Card in BYN?

When you say old images taken with APT were on the card... where these taken with the 850D as well and were they saved to card only or pc+card by APT?

Thanks for your response. The APT images saved to both card and computer. I am not sure wwhich submenu in the display screen offers a choice of  'save to'. Will have a look again.

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I guess it's a valid point that you don't really need the images on card. Actually, what sort of image files are they (i.e. those stored on the computer)? What happens to the RAW NEF files? Does the BYN software automatically convert them to FITS files or something else? As you can see, I am new to this and have yet to take an image of the night sky with the BYN program (or any program, for that matter). :)

BYN can store them as NEF files and optionally as uncompressed TIF files. It does not store images as FITS. Creation of TIF files is a Premium feature. JPG files are also possible, but you lose quite a bit of data with that format.
