Subject: Re: Saving RAW file in PSE3?


Jim, if connecting a camera to a computer is so bad, how do people manage
to shoot tethered?

Obviously, you have no choice in that instance. Duh.

However, there is always a remote but real chance that a malfunction can fry the camera.

Bruce Fraser, I and others have been saying that for years.

Then there was finally a post in an unrelated thread reporting a camera fried by a laptop:

Bud Simpson, "For Fuji DSLR users" #11, 17 Oct 2005 3:57 pm

There is no question that it is a freakish occurrence, but the idea is to minimize the chances of its happening to you.

This excerpt is from a long-gone post by author Bruce Fraser:

Opening files directly from the camera is a bad idea for a variety of
reasons*, and it most certainly isn't faster than using a FireWire or
USB2 card reader.

Drains the camera battery
Runs the risk of the software you're using to open the images
writing to the card and destroying the format
Runs a small but significant risk of USB power frying the camera
Slowest method known to mankind of getting images off a CF or
SD card
