  3. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a long-standing member, Just Dave.

    Dave Barker was a member of Talk Photography for nearly 10 years, and was a prominent member for most of those.
    A very warm, friendly and enthusiastic member, he spent the largest portion of his time on TP welcoming and helping others.

    I'm sure all visitors to this site will join us in thanking Dave for his unwavering support and being a large part of our community.
    Our thoughts are with his family and friends at such a difficult time.

    Hi guys,
    Just wondering if any of the sports togs on here tether their cameras to their laptops? Why or why not?
    Thanks guys.

    I believe some do this but I've never seen it at any games I've attended. Sometimes you need to jump up and move fairly quickly so tethered would just hinder you.

    I have done and it can be extremely effective. However, if your camera goes to sleep it can take a few moments to re-establish the connection to the computer when you wake it up by pressing the shutter, meaning you cant take the shot you want (talking Canon 1D4). So you risk losing an important shot, but gain the faster workflow. It also takes up a USB port which you might need, and uses quite a lot of battery on the laptop which might otherwise be in standby.
