Bird Bath (2 photos)

I thought I would try doing some photos using a long USB cable from my camera to my laptop. I had limited success. I think the USB is too long and transferring data from the camera to the laptop would sometimes crash the program. However I did manage to get some shy birds bathing and I can see the potential shooting remotely if I can work out the bugs.

    • I’m going to pick up a cable with more data capacity. Right now I can hook up the laptop to the camera and set it so I can see through the viewfinder and control the camera via the laptop but with the 25 foot cable the data transfer is too slow and it bogs down everything. I’ll see if the new cable helps.
