Estimados Srs de Adobe: 

Tengo Olympus OM -D 5 Mark II y no puedo hacer un tethering desde cámara, con live vew, hacer una sesión directa con mi cámara directamente


Canon / NIkon / Fuj, y otros modelos si que se puede 

¿ Por que Olympus no ? 
¿ Por que teneis odio a Olympus ?

¿ Por que no detecta mi cámara y se queda buscandola?  Ya se que Adonde no quiere a Olympus, lo tiene limitado 

Estoy pagando por un programa que no me funciona correctamente 

Si no solucionais el problema  dejaré de usar Adobe.

Hay aplicaciones gratuitas y que funcionan sin tener que pagar nada por ellas

Adobe odia a Olympus no se por qué, pero hay limitaciones, cuando estamos en una sociedad digital, intento hacer tethering directo a cámara desde una Olympus OM D-5 Mark II  y no se puede usar el live view directo 

¿ Por que ? 


A adobe no le gusta Olympus, pago por una suscripcion que actualmente , esta capada ¿ por que no hacen algo por solucionarlo ? 

¿ Por que no me se centran en hacer todo más compatible. ?

¿ por que no hay una compatibilidad ? 

¿ Por qué hay limitaciones de hardware de cámaras ? 

¿Por que el código SDK de Olympus no se da a Adobe ? 

Google Translate:

Why is there no compatibility?

Why are there camera hardware limitations?

Why is the Olympus SDK code not given to Adobe?

What specific limitations are you referring to? Lightroom does support Olympus raw files. Perhaps you're referring to tethering?

El sistema de captura directa esta capado  y su anclaje con Olympus está sin actualizarse,  el código SDK debería estar abierto para hacer más compatible esta función con Lightroom Classic que no se puede hacer, salvo programas de Olympus Capture y carpetas calientes, no es un flujo de trabajo y a menudo da errores 

Olympus la oveja negra que nadie quiere, a Adobe no le gusta Olympus, nos tiene marginados, ¿ Que pasa tiene algo en contra ? No tienen acuerdo comercial ?  Llevo muchos años usando adobe, y si no cambian a hacer más compatible Olympus y hacer un flujo de trabajo. me daré de baja de Adobe, por que aparte de caro , no me dan lo que necesito para mi trabajo. Existen programas gratuitos que están mejor que adobe. Adobe es solo marca 

Google Translate:

The direct capture system is capped and its anchor with Olympus is not updated, the SDK code should be open to make this function more compatible with Lightroom Classic that cannot be done, except for Olympus Capture programs and hot folders, it is not a flow work and often gives errors Olympus the black sheep that nobody wants, Adobe does not like Olympus, it has us marginalized, what happens has something against it? Do not have a commercial agreement? I have been using adobe for many years, and if they do not change to make Olympus more compatible and make a workflow. I will unsubscribe from Adobe, because apart from being expensive, they don't give me what I need for my work. There are free programs that are better than adobe. Adobe is brand only

When you connect your camera Olympus to Lightroom Classic: 

My camera Olympus OM-D 5 Mark II is on. It doesn´t work in Lightroom Classic, capture on camera direct, imposible work live view

@Nacidolibrefoto Yes, that is correct, Adobe only advertises tethering for specific Canon and Nikon cameras. Fuji and Leica distribute their own Lightroom tethering plug-ins. Olympus, Panasonic, Sony and other manufacturers do not offer a tethering plug-in.

Google Translate:

Si, es correcto, Adobe solo anuncia el anclaje para cámaras específicas de Canon y Nikon. Fuji y Leica distribuyen sus propios complementos de anclaje de Lightroom. Olympus, Panasonic, Sony y otros fabricantes no ofrecen un complemento de anclaje.

Tethering is working with Nikon D5100. However, the live view is not showing up. Adobe support mentioned, this feature it is not supported yet.
Is there a plan for this on the roadmap? Any estimated timeframe?
Response will help decide in the decision to go with Capture One or wait for Lightroom update.

I am waiting, waiting, waiting for tethering to work with CanonR5 as this is a key process in my business. Any work around? Or is the only solution to switch to another software?

While waiting, maybe have a look at the OpenSource DigiCamControl. Tethering with the M5 seems to be supported there!

Hi,
I am working with Nikon camera's. I shoot tethered within Lightroom. 
Why is the liveview option (during tethering) not available for Nikon camera's like it is for Canon's?

I am waiting for years for this option like lots of Nikon shooters. Can you tell me when this will be solved?
I had contact with your support team during spring 2020 and they told me at the time, it would be a part of the update from July 2020....

December now and I am still wondering.

Regards. Karine

Good question - It is my understanding Capture One has had this feature available for many Nikon cameras for some time.  I'm interested to know what the hold up is for Adobe to make this feature available.

That's why Adobe doesn't share release dates in advance of features being ready... it either had to be pushed back, or the support tech was making stuff up.

Live View was added for some Canon cameras in the October release, and support is expected to be added for Nikon too, but Adobe hasn't said exactly when.

Just found a software alternative, it will allow you to install a plug-in into Lightroom or just use it as a standalone. I've just tested the 30 trial and it does look pretty good. Its simplicity sits nicely between Capture One and Lightroom. I do really like the rotate feature for portraits on Liveview.

Oh thank you! I am going to check this but still it would be much easier to be able to do everything (tethering and liveview) in 1 program, as in Lightroom.
Do you know the cost of this program after the trail?

With the capture program from the Nikon Z6II, you could configure the capture and from the program make Lightroom see the capture you take live

Nikon Capture  or

Camera Control Pro 2

You can create one foulder how capture principal and the lightroom classic,and hot foulder sync the capture. You can use Capture One 21 to tethered free 30 days

Live view is only supported on a few Canon cameras so far, but Nikon support is expected in due course.

My only solution for tethering to a Z6 II is to use Nikon Capture control to tether and then use "watched folder" to bring the files into Lightroom

Hi, would you be able to update the tethering software for Adobe Lightroom to allow the new Nikon Z6II to be tethered?

I have just purchased the Nikon Z6II expecting this to be a given, I was shocked to realise that Adobe have not managed to support this.

This is my error for not checking this, but in my opinion should be something that Adobe really should be prepared for, especially when it's such a groundbreaking launch of a camera that is in high demand globally. I use the camera 95% of the time in the studio tethered so my life is going to be very difficult over the next few, weeks, months, years???? Who knows.

I would love to know if this is on the radar of Adobe at all?

Thanks

Yes, please @Rick put the pressure on them to get the Eos R series cameras working with a direct tether as well. Thanks!
