anyone doing it? If so, which capture program are you using. I'm interested in getting started with this, but information is hard to come by. It seems many of the capture software people overlooked the S2...

Any info would be appreciated.

I am not really familiar with the S2 but I recently purchased and began using the S3 Pro. It came with Fujifilm "Hyper Utility Software HS-V2" ver 3.0.
I messed around with it the other day (only had the camera about a week) and connected the camera to my laptop using fire wire and it worked well as far as I can tell. The program also has controls for the S2 pro, in fact, the S2 can be controlled using the software (according to the documentation).
The software was bundled with the body so I have no idea how much it might retail for.
Good luck.

I shoot the S2 in the studio tethered to the computer all the time. I use the Hyper Utility that came with the camera. Unfortunately the software is not as robust as the Nikon Capture software (which I use with the D1X) but it does a good job anyway. Just be sure that you use the a IEEE 1394 cable of less than 15'. I tried one that was 20' and it fails at times. I've also tethered to my laptop on location and it works just as well. If you develop a good workflow, it's amazing how tethering can save you time. The nice thing about the S2 and the software that comes with the camera is that you can shoot in RAW and then create a set of JPG images VERY quickly -- much faster than any other RAW to JPG conversion I have ever used. If you have questions about the set up or anything email me and I'll try to help you out.

I can't wait to be able to afford a D2X and the wireless connection. Then there will be no more wires to contend with... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I tried it with my S2. My computer didn't have a 1394 port so I installed an adapter card. That caused some issues until I switched to another adapter card.

That problem thread is somewhere in the not too distant archives of this forum.

What I had fun playing with was the complete control of the camera from the computer. Okay, it couldn't be used to look through the viewfinder, but you know what I mean.

The Fuji capture software seemed to work okay for me. I especially liked being able to rotate the image before saving it. And yes, there are some limitations on cable length that can bite your behind.
