    Does anybody know what software and cables I need to do the following:
    Use my Nikon D100 to shoot, while reviewing the image (and ideally,
    details about the photo and some image manipulation capabilities) on
    my Apple PowerBook? I know that I can hook it up to a monitor using
    the video out, but anything more integrated with the PowerBook (or any
    Windows Laptop)?

    Assuming I understand you correctly you need:

    1) Nikon Capture 3.5 or 4.x (optional extra)
    2) UC-E4 USB cable (supplied with D100)

    The above will let you control the D100 from your PowerBook and have the
    images stored on the PowerBook. See pages 169-171 of the manual.

    Thanks for the reply--haven't tried it yet, but this looks like
    exactly what I need...

    Well, I downloaded the demo Nikon Capture 4.x and have Nikon View
    installed as well on my Powerbook G4. However, I cannot get the laptop
    to recognize the D100 when connected. It keeps giving message: No
    camera was detected, etc.

    Anybody have any experience in using Nikon Capture 4.x on a Powerbook
    (running OS Jaguar 10.3.3) with a D100?

    Is your D100's USB mode set to PTP? Go to the Setup menu's USB tab. See
    page 166 of the manual.

    NB. You may also want to run the Image Capture application (in
    /Applications) and set the Camera preference to "When camera is connected,
    open: No application". This stops iPhoto from starting when the camera is

    Thanks Jose! I didn't have the D100 USB mode set to PTP. Now I do and
    it works. You are a genius...
