    Error Message

    Hi Rodney, The 700D is a 12 year old cable and back then Nikon did not allow BULB over USB. A serial cable is a third party cable, it's not a Nikon supplied cable. BYN has been tested with the Shoestring DSUSB cable there there are other cables that will work as well. Regards,

    D700 BULB Issue

    This might have been and error in the camera grid, I do believe the D700 requires a serial cable. I have updated the grid already.
  3. Yes, you need to download 3.1.18 pre-release. https://www.otelescope.com/files/category/24-pre-releases/
  4. If you have version 3.0.x you need to upgrade your key. The instructions are on the store product page, scroll down and hit the upgrade tab, then select the instructions for upgrading to 3.1.x.

    Canon Eos R support ?

    Ok, it looks like I'll have to try and get my hands on an EOS--R for testing. I've done everything I normally do with any new Canon cameras... Or try to rent one but the last time I rented a camera it ended up costing $400 for a weekend 😢

    Canon Eos R support ?

    Ok, first we need confirmation that the EOS-R can do bulb over USB. With the EOS-M series this was not possible and as a result I was not able to support them in BackyardEOS. Can someone please try their EOS-R with the Canaon software EOS Utility and confirm that they can take BULB images > 30 seconds with the EOS-R connected to EOS Utility. I need this to be 100% confirm before going any further. I thought I had one user confirm this but I'm not sure anymore if this was for the EOS-R model or the Nikon Z series. Thank you.

    Canon Eos R support ?

    BULB is a camera term/setting that allows you to take 30+ second images. You camera has internal timed value (known as TV) from 1/8000th of a second to 30 seconds. Beyond that you need to set the camera dial to BULB to take 30+ seconds images. Hope this makes sense.

    Trial extension

    I just archived your first trial, go ahead and add it in your cart and proceed to checkout for a second trial key. Regards,
  10. What is the exact error message you get? Also, make sure the application is not running while attempting to install; this include the background server if you had it configured in BYN. To be safe, reboot, then try installing 2.0.10. Keep us posted.

    EOS R

    Not yet, I have a user currently trying a test build but he is not having success with it so far. If you want you can download 3.1.18.RC2 in the download pre-release section that I uploaded earlier today. Having more feedback can only help. Regards,
  12. I just uploaded 3.1.18.RC2 in the pre-release section. https://www.otelescope.com/files/category/24-pre-releases/
