I get the feeling sometimes that techies make things more confusing on purpose just so they can have a 1-up on the general population...
It seems I'm going to have to study networking soon.
I have all these cool network capable gadgets, a network raid system, network printers, etc...
But damned if I can set any of them up!
To top it all I'm trying to set up my D4 to wireless network with my Macbook, iPad and iPhone so I can preview/download my images (and even control my camera) externally.
I've managed to hook it up to the iPad with what's called an Ad Hoc connection where the iPad connects directly to the cam using the WT-5 transmitter and I must say it works really well. What a pleasure using live-view and zooming in on your focus point at 200%, selecting focus point, adjusting settings etc - you could do an entire shoot without touching your camera (if you wanted to..).
But to connect Ad Hoc means you connect directly via Wi-Fi and discard your external connections (i.e. internet).
I'm going to have to try set up what's called an Infrastructure connection now via my router.... so now it starts getting technical again...
Any tech junkies out there dying to take on a networking challenge?
