I would expect a growing flood of people with this issue. The D800 is targeted at portraiture and studio work, which often goes tethered. And we're going to need it right about now. (Landscape too, but usually not tethered.)

Agreed!

Crossing fingers it's in 4.2 update.

https://sdk.nikonimaging.com/apply/ Until Nikon supports it in their SDK, it probably won't be in Lightroom's tether-capable list.

Several companies have D800 tether and camera control products. Check out, "ControlMyNikon" for $29.95. Adobe you are behind the curve.

You can currently tether the D4 via a web browser on an ethernet cable quite easily. I don't see it being that difficult for Lightroom to do it. Worse comes to worse, you have LR watch the folder the D4 sends the files to.

Support for Nikon D800 "Tethering" in Lightroom v4.1 ?
Have a feeling this will be a pretty popular PRO camera :)

I can tether the D3 family but not the D4. This is a serious issue since the D4 (and the D800) will most likely be used a lot for studio work.

+1, agree tether is important for studio work. D800 is best for this. But no LR tethering

When will tethering be supported for the new Nikon's?
D4, D800, D800e, none work?
What's up Adobe, why the delay?

I thought the update to Lightroom 4.1 would enable tethered shooting with D800 but I can't get it to recognize my camera

... well it seems the D4, D800 and D800e are now on the list of supported cameras for Aperture 3 ...

Maybe, for Mac users, you could get by temporarily by using the Image Capture app in OS X (it's in your Applications folder) and pointing Lr to a watched folder ... just be sure you have all the current camera raw (not Adobe Camera RAW - the camera support updates for the system itself) updates for OS X from Apple ...

"Watched folder" will work with LR for the new Nikons.

"Tethered capture" will NOT work.

This seems to me a growing problem for any PRO using LR , and a D800/D4.
Love the quick support for the RAWS ... but this tether support seems slow for an important studio camera like this one. and one that is getting so much press.
