Is there any solution to trigger a DF from a computer WITHOUT using tethering of the back? I've got a problem shooting tethered where I trigger from the computer (camera and back lock up every 20-30 shots, got a support case running with P1) but the camera doesn't lock up when triggered via a remote release and tethered shooting works like that perfectly. If I can shoot from some kind of program to just trigger the camera via the remote release socket then I think it would solve the problem. We are using a foot pedal to trigger the camera at present, we don't have enough hands free for a remote release. I can have the foot pedal wired up to a remote socket by cutting and splicing I suppose, I might have to eventhough it will be complicated.
I've already lost 2 days of shooting, Leafs only answer at the moment is a specific FW 800 card for my computer which of course isn't available outside the US and certainly not here. Would take a fortnight to get here even if it is the correct solution. I cannot afford many more lost days.
