Lightroom: Support tethered shooting for Nikon D200 (Windows Vista/7)

Why don't you support tethering for this Nikon camera?

Yeah, I tried to get the D200 tethering working on both Mac and Windows, but it just proved to be too unstable on the Windows side. I didn't want to ship a solution that would just prove to be frustrating, and the stability just wasn't up to our standards. I felt bad about including it on one platform and not the other, but we decided there was no reason to exclude it from the Mac side as it was working reasonably well there.

couldn't be rocket science to transfer this feature from mac to windows version?
The nikon d300, d3 and so on are integrated anyway..

See Kevin's comment above. There are some issues on the windows side that are out of Adobe's control.

While it may not be rocket science ... it is Nikon's rocket scientists that need to step to the forefront and provide a solution ...

Even though there are quite a number of D200's being used in the world (I too have four of them) Nikon have never been supportive let alone reponsive to software/firmware updates over the long haul ... which is why many Nikon shooters avail themselves to third party options like Adobe to handle their software needs.

Unless or until Nikon offers a solution, I don't think there will be one ...

We Canon owners (5DMK 1 variety) are in the same boat. Canon will likely never provide the 64 bit drivers necessary. Again, not Adobe's fault but Lightroom's handicap when it comes to tethering...

tethering with d200... it's seems to me that it's "Adobe" lightroom rocket scientists that are not doing their home work.... Why is it that you can tether perfectly with "desktop darkroom?"

Why doesn't lightroom 4 tether nikon D200...... it's not on list..... so one now we have to buy new camera to tether? I have several software that support d200's it's still a work horse.

I have never been able to shoot more than 3-4 images with the D200 in both LR3 and 4. After that the dial spins and it hangs. I am able to tether using Aperture 2 or 3.

I found Darkroom Professional from Express Digital is the best tethering software with d200 ..... it also integrates with photoshop do the retouching in photoshop and back to darkroom pro in an instant...... I have done conventions or golf tournaments all day long with it..... never a glitch unless you turn off a camera but that's when software has to recognize camera again when turned on.

I thought by now Adobe would have figured it out it is after all the 2000's + a decade and some.

You will need parallels running xp pro with this software 8.7 it is pc only but they worked out tethering perfectly

Ive tried combinations with: Photomechanic 4.6 ,lightroom 4, Nikon Capture NX 2, Nikon camera control pro 2, Nikon View NX2 and Phase one capture one.
I have a D700 and a D200 and both work smoothly and have the available image ready for viewing the fastest with NKRemote 2.4. Its probably the least 'attractive' looking GUI but those bare bones make it the most efficiant and a breeze to use with full screen preview unlike the rest i tried.
