D90 + Remote issues

Post by nhdlux » 09.08.2020 04:39

Ive installed Helicon Remote & Focus.

Using a Nikon D90 with Mac OSX,

I can set up my stacking points, but once I either 'Start shooting' or do 'fast preview' the D90 camera is stuck on a PC transfer and eventually it times out.

Have a missed something? I have setup file permissions to Remote to save to the folder on my laptop, but nothing happens.

Thank you

Most likely, this is caused by a conflict with some other application that attempts to access the camera while Helicon Remote is already running (could even be Photos, or any app that can browse images on the camera's memory card, or any other remote control app). Could also be caused by unstable physical USB connection, e. g. a loose contact or a faulty cable. So you need to check for any possible culprit applications and terminate them, if the problem persists - reboot your Mac and try a different USB cable.

Also, make sure mirror lock-up is turned off in the camera body settings.
