I know that it is possible to shoot tethered with tools like gphoto2. What I am wondering is if it is possible to shoot from the camera as usual and simply use the tether for storage? I am aware of options like the eye-fi cards but I prefer the tethered option. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

I tried the DarkTable with Nikon D7000. I have tried only basic functions such as adjusting shutter speed. I was not able to adjust white balance by K-scale, only by the built-in presets (incandescent, etc). My camera had to be available BEFORE DT was launched. Otherwise it works fine. DT is basically a raw editor with "darkroom" editor mode, so new shots can be immediately processed.

Entangle specialized specifically on tethering also looks promising, although I have not tried it yet.
