on transferring

Helped Wayne out with a photography-telescope matter. He was stymied getting image files from his Nikon DSLR to his computer. The memory card sneaker-network option was not practical. I suggested all he needed was a data cable. Explained that the wire for the Canon DSLR was a standard USB. And that afforded other possibilities too, in addition to downloading: exposure control, live view monitoring, remote focus control, shooting, etc. I didn't know however if the cable for the D5200 was proprietary. It was hard to tell from the product web page. To be determined. As I bumbled about I also noted that the camera support wireless communications. One less cable. Wayne was pretty happy.
