Can't capture from the computer with P25 back on Contax 645

    Hi Lynnette,

    To fire from the computer the Contax requires an additional motor cable. We have a KB article that explains what is needed on different camera bodies for host capture: ... tion1.html. Host capture is dependent on the camera bodies interface to the shutter release and even though the contax has electronic interface that can send sync info to the back, it is not able to trigger the shutter.

    As far as downloading the images from the back, the firewire and cf card are independent storage options in the internal setup of the back and the firewire board circuitry is not designed to read from the card.
