Another thing to think about with tethered shooting is where your file's going to go. Maybe you're shooting to the internal card slots, and that's great. You know, this particular camera has two SD card slots. Other cameras may have multiple slots, and that's going to make it easy to back up your images to more than one card. But, what happens if you want additional backups or backups that are ready to walk at the end of the shoot? Well, maybe your client shows up with a hard drive and you want to take that hard drive and let them walk out the door with the images. Or maybe it's your assistant who's going to start postprocessing and wants to take the images home for the night.
Well, that's okay. I could actually connect this through the USB cable. I'm going to go out the camera here with the USB cable. Into a computer. And attached to that computer is going to be this hard drive. And as I shoot, the images are going to be automatically backed up to this drive as I'm working. And if I start shooting in burst mode or I'm shooting very quickly, it's really no big deal. You see, what's going to happen is that the camera's going to catch up. And so it'll continue to transfer things over the USB cable, and it'll keep transferring it down to that hard drive.
Now, this is working pretty well. And I've got everything basically how I want it. So I've got the tethered shoot ready to go. All we need to do is actually set up the tethered workstation, and let's switch back to a photo workflow, and build the tethering table.
