I am trying to shoot with a Nikon D3 and wipics wireless.
Photokey is monitoring the FTP hot folder and is importing the image perfectly.
I am using auto batch and the image in the export folder is corrupt and only shows the
start of the image. It almost looks like photokey is starting the export before the entire image is complete due to ftp time.

Has anyone had this, or is there a fix?
I'm using Photokey 4 Pro

Does it do this for every image, or only occasional images?

had the same problem using a EyeFi card, our slideshow monitores a folder and a new file is added . But while the file is still being transfered Windows is making a thumbnail or the software is opening the picture allready. So then you'll miss a part of the photo.

Perhaps you should try shooting in a lower resolution so the pictures will be transfered quicker?
