I recently ran into some problems with my Nikon D90. For some odd reason, the camera's USB socket has failed. I must be animating too heavily. After further testing, it's definitely the camera's socket and not just the usb cord.
My options are either sending in the camera for repairs or I was wondering does Dragonframe work with USB card readers? Does anyone have experience with that. I really don't want to give up my camera for a month.
Any advice/help is appreciated :)
A card reader would work for transferring the full size images, but what about the live feed?
See, I was hoping Dragonframe would recognize the USB card reader the same way it recognizes the camera when it's attached to the USB cable; but, I'm guessing that's just wishful thinking on my part.
Bummer. Looks like I have to ship my camera off to the Nikon repair center. I probably should learn to animate without relying so heavily on live feed. It can be quite addicting.
Thanks Nick :)
The D90 has live view, but it makes the camera prone to overheating. The camera's great, but it's not really meant for long animation sessions.
I sent the camera off to the Nikon repair center last week and they're replacing my USB port. Total Damage = $250. Ouch! I've had it for 3 years, so that's not too bad. She's been good to me otherwise.
