"Control Pentax K10D remotely & download pictures without using a memory card, just like Pentax Remote Assistant(tm) 3."
So there you go. After having installed pkremote we take it for a first spin:
The application starts up presenting three windows:
- PK-Remote Camera Settings
- PK-Remote Camera Buffers
PK-Remote Camera Settings
Once the camera is recognized by pkremote this window will allow you to control the camera:
You can adjust he Jpg settings to your liking on the rigth hand side. On the left you can choose the camera mode, aperture, shutter speed, iso settings and the exposure correction. I didnt check if the "green button" and "AE lock" buttons work...
The Pk/remote windows shows you the preview and all focus points of your camera. If you click one the focus point will checked (green color). Once you click the Focus button, the AF will be activated. The take picture button will let you, you might habe guessed it, take a picture. The upper part of the windows informs you about the camera setting chosen while taking the picture.
PK-Remote Camera Buffers
The last windows will displays the pictures in the Camera buffer, aka the pictures that have already been taken.
If you work in manual mode, click on a picture and you can either delete it, or save it using the appropriate buttons and the format chosen in the drop down menu. You can save in Pef, Jpg or Dng format.
You can also setup an autosave mode. Check the autosave check box and choose a name in the "Name" text field. Set the counter to the first sequence number ("1", if you start a new shooting session). Enter a valid path in the "Folder" textfield pointing to the folder where to store you images. You can also navigate there using the "Browse" button. Any picture taken from that point on, will be saved ASAP after expoure.
