  1. Guylain,

    Making progress. The latest version connects right away. Frame and Focus,  LiveView work.

    I created a small capture plan with the camera in BULB.  When I click Start Capture it seems to abort right away. I tried with save file to PC, PC + Camera, and Camera. Same result

    If I try to Snap Image in Frame and Focus it shows busy and hangs there with the spinning Busy sigh. If i turn off the camera and then re-connect everything comes back. In no cases were any images saved to camera or PC.

    Attached are 4 log file from this morning.

    Thanks again for your help. Feels like a leap forward.

    Computer connects right away, I can browse the camera SD card but when I try to connect I get this.

    10:42:50  PLEASE CONTACT US with the above information, looks like your we may need to make a few adjustment to fully support your camera.  We have our fingers crossed.

    10:42:50  Camera Not Found!  Make sure it's connected to the PC and turned ON


    I have tried several USB cables and both manual and auto lenses,  2 different PC's, and different shooting modes, including BULB. Always the same message.


  3. STC Optical Co. make a light pollution filter for Nikon full frame cameras that fits with all Nikon lenses. To install the filter you must lock the mirror up and then insert the filter. Once in place the filter stops the mirror from returning. Basically full time live view. Has anyone tried one of these clip filters with BackyardNikon? US$120 less than the same front mount 77mm filter.
