we are actually trying and planning the switch from Windows and Lightroom to Linux and darktable.
One issue we discovered yesterday, that I could not solve yet using Linux and darktable, and it is about transferring the images to a PC/Laptop while shooting in the studio: (We have a Nikon D610 and D810 here)
Having used Win/LR we could use an EyeFIMobi Pro Wifi SDCard that worked together with lightroom. I read and tried a little about the debian-package “eyefiserver”, but I am not sure if this actually still does work?
Using the EyeFi Card would be a nice-to-have, but working with usb-cable would also be ok for us. Using Lightroom we just connected the Camera to the PC and in Lightroom every new taken image opened in Preview. This is the workflow we wanted to imitate with FOSS.
Now the problem with Linux and darktable is: Tethered shooting in darktable works, but this is not want we want, as in this case we can only control the camera via darktable (pressing the shutter, etc). So what we would need is a kind of script, that would import every new taken photo from the camera (kind of gphoto2 does…), put it to a folder and preview the newest photo. I read and looked about lua scripts, but did not find anything that would work for us in this way.
So my question is: how could we realize it, that whenever a photo with a dslr is taken, it is transferred to a linux computer and displayed/preview in darktable? (or, if not possible with darktable, any other software)
Already: Thanks for your help
