Pentax K-3, my new workhorse.... but no tethering?


I switched from Fuji (XT1) over to the K-3 for the durability, battery life, and OVF. My main use for this camera is product photography, more specifically wine bottles. I also shoot events and winery landscapes and have been using the 17-70 sigma but just ordered a 20-40 limited to replace it.

Since I'm doing a lot of bottle photography in the studio, and often in high volume, I'd like the option to tether into Capture One, or lightroom if necessary. It seems that this isn't an option with a wired tether. Would the wifi card be able to send .dngs to capture one in a workflow situation?

An eye-fi card might do the trick for you. The flucard is abysmally slow and doesn't feature any sort of "push" capability, so you'd have to manually download the files after capturing them.

Once you have the eye-fi card set up, you can get lightroom to automatically import photos as they are downloaded.

Awesome! I'll look into that type of card to see if it can send raw files or .dng

Hopefully C1 will be able to auto import as well. It's my preferred editor for colors.

Thanks for the help
