Can the Nikon D850 be used with the qDslrDashboard over USB like the D800?

Hi all, I'm very interested in buying the D850, because of it associates a fairly good 4K abilities (very important for me while shooting big waves or eruptions for example) with very good stills abilities.
Before doing it in a few months, I just want to be sure that I'll be able to use Qdslrdashboard with it on my android device without problems (either with an USB cable or wifi, it's not an important point for me, as long as it's possible). If not I may not buy this camera !

USB and WiFi via TPLink router works fine. Internal Wifi not so because of the Snapbridge issue, see: https://lrtimelapse.com/open-letter/nikon/

Yes, I remember this letter (and signed it of course)...Thanks for your answer, and for learning that the D850 will be usable for holy grails, even with this stupid snapbridge issue.

Quote:Of course you can set the D850 to Liveview and turn on the silent shutter when shooting timelapse. The only drawback is, that Liveview will be on all the time - this is when working with an external intervalometer.


Thanks Gunther, that's what I was after! Happy to bring extra batteries if it saves my shutter clacking all night. 


Many thanks. Smile

Yes but it will warm up your sensor and illuminate the surroundings because the display is on. I still prefer to shoot the regular way until Nikon gives us the option to shoot silently with display off.
