    I don't have a Nikon Z camera but Nikon's of the past have never been able to capture both to the card and Capture One at the same time, same goes for most other brands of camera's as well. When it is possible usually it is necessary to use the camera manufacturer's tethering software to implement it and then set up Capture One to work in hot folder mode, which limits Capture One's tethering capabilities.

    Ah, I might be better off just hooking up an external HD that is mirror raided so I have back up that way?

    Some recent Sony and Fuji cameras have a connection mode that allows capture to Tether and card without reverting to the "hot folder" option.

    It might be worth checking if something similar is likely for new or recent model Nikons. However I do not recall any mention of it so far.

    it can be done. you need to install nikon capture pro 2, and set it to download to c1pro's capture folder and set to hot also i think. 

    that way the camera would have the card and be able to live view for any nikon camera, for D850 or z7 while tethering, not to mention, whatever that you shot, it's also a copy on the card on the camera. 

    you also need to set c1pro to disable nikon feature so that nikon capture pro 2 can handle the tethering. 

    if you use NCCP2 as the tethering software you wont be able to live view on c1pro. but only on NCCP2

    Anyone point me to a tutorial on setting up this hot folder/hot link thing?

    i just checked. the hot folder thing is not required for sessions. as a session it's by default "hot"

    so that means what I did was just setting NCCP2 to download to the capture folder of that session created in C1pro

    And you still get images on the card in the Z7?

    What's NCCP2?
