What’s in the Box?

Sony includes four basic software utilities with the Alpha DSLR-A850. They are the Picture Motion Browser (compatible with Windows only), Image Data Lightbox SR (for Windows and Macs), Remote Camera Control, (for Windows and Macs), and Image Data Converter SR (supplied for both Windows and Mac operating systems). Install them using the CD supplied with the camera. Picture Motion Browser is an importing utility that collects images into folders and offers some simple editing capabilities for making minor fixes. Image Data Lightbox is a more advanced image browsing and workflow manager; Remote Camera Control allows you to operate your A850 while tethered to a personal computer. Image Data Converter SR is a sophisticated tool for importing and manipulating RAW images.

Picture Motion Browser

This tool, supplied with a variety of Sony cameras, camcorders, and other imaging devices, works with both still images and video files. It is available for Windows only, but Mac users can get most of its functions in iPhoto, and can import images to their computer by dragging and dropping image files as described in the “Transferring Your Photos” section that follows. Once you’ve imported/registered images with this browser, they are displayed either in a folder view (see Figure 8.1) or in a calendar view that arranges the photos by the date they were taken. You can also tag images to open in a map view.
