may i know what is the correct way to put pix into da com?
use USB cable direct from the cam or use card reader?
thx in advance
card reader saves you the hassle of installing the camera software.
and its much faster in some cases too
I only use card-reader.
well...i got an internal card reader.....and my cards dun always stay in the cam during a shoot ya.....
it takes years if connect to the cam
Direct will waste batt power of cam too. So if u need to use the camera, it's stuck to the pc or it's juice sucked dry by the usb port.
Since my Nikon D70s is only USB1.1 transfer, if I use external card reader, I've got USB2.0 transfer rate. I can download all the picture faster.
In Nikon D70s (I'm not sure the rest) will display -E- (empty) on top LCD if no card inside, even when the switch is on off position. Always make a good practice to check that.
previously was using PnS and at times direct connect wasn't detected by the pc.
no problem anymore after using card reader.
will still use a card reader even if the cam has USB 2.0 transfer speed....
if bringing along laptop. card reader.
no laptop connect to other pc, wire transfer.
in short. depends.
thats for me. i use both anyway.
i use card reader so much i forgot my cam can do file transfer independently.
I think almost consensus me also card reader.
card reader anytime. u take out the card and u can keep the camera safely away from desk in case you spill water or accidentally gets pushed off the table. of course u also save your camera battery.
