That's the problem for me...I'm using a Trinamic stepper and Helicon. I rely on all control over USB.Chris S. wrote:I can't recall whether or not you are using a StackShot controller. If so, it will easily handle the double shutter-press needed for mirror-up shooting, connecting via the 10-pin port. Meanwhile, you can have your choice of tethering software running through the USB connection. At present, ControlMyNikon's Website says that the D810 will be supported in "the next version"--with no information about when that will be released. All you lose in mirror-up mode is the ability to use the tethering software to actually take the picture. Granted, this is a boneheaded oversight on Nikon's part, and I hope they fix it. That said, it hasn't actually caused me much grief in my tethered workflows. When I'm not using the StackShot controller, I screw in an electronic release.
Different Canon models have varying levels of success with their EFSC implementations. It seems to be correlated with the level of noise at beginning of the exposure, or perhaps during pixel quenching. The news that the D810 is completely silent at beginning of exposure is good news and may correlate to good performance at high magnifications.Steve S wrote:As to diff from Canon, wouldn't it come down to second-curtain differences? Might depend on particular Canon shutters. Anyhow differences can't amount to much, second- or third-order effects.
