What if a server is unavailable?

Postby NN116688UL1 » Thu Jan 31, 2019 12:15 am

So this is more of a comment than a question. Since I shoot on location, and, not within a studio, a server is usually unavailable, therefore I'm unable to use Capture One Pilot, which would benefit my client and overall workflow. Question, if one's camera has WIFI and since your iOS device has WIFI, why can't you run Pilot via WIFI / bluetooth? Or am I missing something?

You still need an application to serve the image to Capture Pilot. It is the Image Server of the Capture Pilot tool in Capture One that provides this function.

So you still need Capture One, unless you have a replacement for it in your camera, which is only available in Phase One digital backs.

I’m still confused, if a camera has built in WIFI such as the GFX, why allow a connnection via C1 Pilot? Fuji Remote already does this but its not C1 centric and when shooting on location with no server access, it would be awesome to connect to my iPad for client viewing!

The GFX may have built-in wifi, but if it is not running a Capture Pilot server then you'd need to spawn one from another location (like Capture One). Our IQ1-3 digital backs have such the ability. Without a Capture Pilot server running, there is no ability to serve the previews to the client (your iPad, in this case).

It seems you need to use something like CamRanger to do what I think you're wanting.

The Windows Troubleshooting function will occasionally respond with the message: ‘DNS server not responding’ or 'Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource (DNS server) is not responding'. There are many factors that can cause this notification to appear. Fortunately, this problem can generally be corrected in just a few simple steps. Find out here about some of the most common causes of problems and their solutions.

The domain name system (DNS) is a directory service used for transforming alphanumeric domain names into numeric IP addresses. A decentralized process, name resolution generally takes place on DNS servers’ networks distributed throughout the world. Every internet address you enter into your web browser’s search bar is then forwarded by your router to a DNS server. This server then dissolves the domain name into a numeric sequence and returns a corresponding IP address. Should the DNS server fail to produce an answer, then it won’t be possible to access the desired website; the result is the error message ‘DNS server not responding’.
