I see it’s not listed on the supported cameras for Tibet (the Newton digital camera software) but what do you think the chances are that it will work OK? It’s only a year too late or so to be included on the list:

As noted in the Newton FAQ, Daniel Padilla reported that a camera must use Sierra Imaging firmware and have a serial port to work with Tibet software.


The 850z is listed as compatible with Sierra Imaging’s “Image Expert” system, along with most of the other Tibet compatible cameras:


I think it would be worth a try.

The 850z is likely not listed by either Andreas or the FAQ as compatible because no one ever confirmed whether it worked with Tibet or not.
