K10D and remote assistant problems

Hi all,

I had some time today and decided to play around with the K10D and the remote assistant (3) program. I went through all the different shooting options on the program and it indeed changes them on the camera. But when it came to take a picture, it would not show the picture taken on the computer. I tried fiddling around with all the options, nothing works. So I was wondering if anyone knows what the problem might be?

Sorry, I am quite new to the tethered shooting thang.

I appreciate the help!

One thing that can cause problems is connecting the camera to the PC before switching the camera on. The PC connection seems to cause the camera not to boot up correctly.

In my case, this causes the Green channel to disappear from the pictures , but yours may be different. The Help file isn't clear on the order of connection, but it's a consistent effect for me.

I use Autosave mode for tethered studio shooting and it's very effective, and reliable if you switch on in the right order!


Thanks Colin,

I just tried that, and nothing. And now the shutter wont release on the software. Says the buffer is full?

Anybody else with some info?
