SoftTALK 2000 is the next generation of the popular SoftTALK 98 application, being a 32-bit software interface that makes the most of your Windows-HarTALK-Nikon inter-connectivity.
This product (download demo from: SoftTALK 2000 Demonstration application) which has just been released, supports the F5, F100 and 90-series cameras, sports a new look user interface, has multiple camera connection ability, HarTALK remote control firing, etc. An upgrade policy is implemented.
For SoftTALK 2000 preview purposes, the built-in emulation mode allows demonstration of the capabilities of the system without a cable.
HarTALK is the hardware interface that facilitates the connection of semi-professional and professional Nikon Cameras to virtually "any" other intelligent device.
This product is very successfully used by many diverse people around the globe, for purposes ranging from scientific to professional photography.
We are now manufacturing HarTALK Version 1.4. Apart from production related improvements there are no differences in the functionality of Version 1.4 compared to previous HarTALK units. Notably, an improvement was made in v1.4, which results in faster F100 software firing, and camera meter turn-off.
All of the previous versions have been sold out.
The new shipment of HarTALK Version 1.4 has been available from May 2000 - get yours now.
