I would love to be added to this list if it's not too late. I have a canon 5D M4 and shot tethered and live view would make a world of difference to us.

Greetings

To all those who have participated in this thread we would like to invite you to a special test area to review, test and advise Adobe on in-process improvements to the tethered-capture process in Lightroom Classic.  Primarily we are looking for users who tether to Lightroom using Nikon cameras on both Mac and Windows. 

If you are interested in participating in this Tether prerelease testing, please reply to this comment. You will be contacted by Adobe with further instructions. 

Thank you for your continued patience and enthusiasm for Lightroom Classic.

Interested. Is the opportunity to try it still available?

I did not end up participating in the previous testing opportunity because (last I checked) it did not include Live View.  If that has changed, do let me (us!) know. Tethering without live view is not useful for me.
Thank you!

I did participate in this testing session because I thought it was going to include tethered live view, but it did not.  I'll stick with it hoping that it will eventually include tethered live view.  Please...please please

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Tethered Live view for Nikon.

When can I expect to see Live View support for Nikon cameras in tethered capture? Is there a projected date for this? I was really hoping Nikon support would have been added in the 2020 update...

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Tether with a live feed from the camera..

When I am in the studio I need a live feed from the camera. I want the program to give me the opportunity to remote the camera while Im at my iMac so I can see the screen result without taking pics. This will give me the oppetunity to guide the assistent in the light setup a give me at steady workflow.

How is Capture 1 at importing Lightroom databases? Does it pick up all the metadata, collections, etc.?

Hi all, just got knowing after a chat with a technical support adviser, that so far Lightroom Classic have this feature only for a bunch of Canon models...

Since Canon is got their own app that is already capable of it, it would be really useful if you offer this feature compatible with Nikon cameras.

Currently paying monthly plan on Capture One as well just because of this... the Capture One tethering system is complete and works very well.

Please, launch Live View for Nikon cameras as soon as possible.

Many thanks!

There are several free tethering apps for Nikon cameras, just do a search. Nikon has Camera Control Pro for $60. As they are hemorrhaging cash, Nikon cannot afford to give it away. 

 

And never forget that Nikon keeps all their specs secret so Adobe would have to reverse engineer the software. You should be complaining to Nikon, not Adobe.

Thank you Lewis, but unfortunately it will not.

In the case I'm talking about Live View as part of the tethering system in some photo editing apps, like Capture One. You need to be able to view and shoot or capture on the same app.

Hey Bill,

I checked out most apps for tethering on Nikon cameras, didn't really like them at all, that's why I ended up with Capture One and now paying both plans, Adobe + Capture One...

Camera control Pro didn't check, it works on Live View? will see. Yeah, Nikon is far behind Canon in this aspect, Canon is got their own app, free, tethering with Live View... and Adobe instead of doing a version for Nikon that doesn't have any, they do for Canon... so, as usual not really focused on customer needs.

I did complain to Nikon as well, of course, and asked them for a plugin to install on Lightroom that maybe can make Live View work with Nikon, still waiting for a reply...

Canon published their specs, Nikon doesn't. It is Nikon that isn't customer focused, one of the reasons I quit that brand.

Agree Nikon is not doing much at all... It's been like that for many years... but I've 25+ years always with Nikon, hard to change it all, a cost I can't afford so far

Nikon has an SDK freely available for software developers and it was last updated for the Z6II/Z7II on 20 Dec 2020. Adobe developers would most definitely have this SDK.

Smart Shooter Lightroom Plugin provides Live View for Nikon and Sony plus many other features not currently available in standard LR tethering:  https://youtu.be/bjcBVkr4GnM

Anthony, is always the same, each company puts the blame on the other... but in rare occasions they work as a team to fix or resolve customers issues, that is who actually deserves the final satisfaction.

Adobe might know what you are telling me and Nikon should facilitate an app with no cost for their customers... as Canon does.

Hi all, this was Nikon's support literal reply:

"I am sorry to say we do not produce plug-ins for external apps. Nikon has it's own tethering app which is the Camera Control Pro 2. 

So in that case, only Adobe will be able to properly inform customers when they release plug-ins for Nikon cameras on the live view feature while using the app. 

We apologise for any inconvenience, do contact us whenever you need."

So, buy the Camera Control Pro 2 or look yourself for other options.

Thanks everybody.

Cheers and Happy New Year, finally.... ;(
