Pk-Teather

Just started playing with this software on the K-x, and wondering if others here may have some tips/hints on it's usage.

PK_Tether is pretty straight forward.

The only things I've noticed is if you have it save the files to the hard drive it uses a different number scheme for the folders and images. When using the interval mode the interval is from start time to start time. So the interval has to be longer than the exposure time. So if you set the interval to 10 seconds and the exposure is 5 seconds, five seconds will elapse after the exposure is finished before the next exposure begins.

The URL above was not working when I tried it. The project page on SourceForge has a download link for the Windows zip:

pkTriggerCord | SourceForge.net

Be aware that pkTriggerCord supports both a simple user interface and full command-line support is a command line program and provides no user interface. I have not used it, but that second feature appears to be a good tool for programmed camera operation. Note too that the user interface requires that the GTK2 widget set be installed on your computer.

Well, Installed both, yet the .exe won't run, yet the cl will open the DOS window. Clicking on the .exe, get this error msg: This application failed to start because libgdk-win32-2.0-0.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem. Tried that, yet still don't work....Thoughts?

Yes, as mentioned: installed both, on a 32b XP machine

I see here:http://www.windows7download.com/free-win7-gtk-/ that there is also a 64b version, along with the 32b.

Also here:http://www.gtk.org/download/win32.php that GTK is at 3.64. The one I D/L'd is version 2.24.10.10

Will give the newer on a go, see if that helps.
