Aperture, 5d Mark II and tether ??
- Now I'm using a Mac Laptop, Canon 5D Mark II and EOS/DPP to tether.
After about 50-100 shots (not fast shooting) the compter completely
locks up. I have to shut down everything and startup again.
My friend has a PC and the older 5D Canon and uses Breeze browser and
has the exact same problem.
I never had a problem with my 40D and tethering. My friend bought
Capture ONe Pro and the problem disappeared. Gosh I hate to plunk
down $300.00 bucks just to tether without problems
Any tips, help?
Does Aperture cause lockup also?
- I had others say that, but it does not explain my friend who has the
same problem and has a PC and used Breeze Browser.
I was thinking possibly DPP/EOS has some sort of buffer that is filling up??
I do appreciate your reply however.
Does no one tether on this list?

similar problem with the other platform (or every platform) - then
again, it could be the hardware itself (5d). Having worked in the
high-end s/w industry, it opened my eyes to "the squeaky wheel gets
the grease". Also helps if the squeeky wheel owns a pile of 5d's I'm
sure, or if your name is perhaps Annie Leibovitz.
Nobody is going to fix something they don't know is a problem, and
even if they know ... sometimes even if it's a showstopper, unless
you are Leibovitz they still put it on the back burner.
But that said, if you say nothing ... then, you are pretty much
assured that nothing will get fixed.

didn't seem to recognize my SONY a700 back in the summer.
