I just purchase Lightroom3 and trying to shoot tethered, but when i turn on my 5D1, there is a "BUSY" flashing in the window. Am i doing something wrong?

I actually figured it out.. with 5D you have to switch to PC connection in the back of the camera.

Yes. That and other info about tethered shooting are in the support doc Tethered camera support | Lightroom.

That is exactly where i got the info.. after hrs of stress and right when i was about to throw the computer and camera out the window.. i found the info. LOL.

Thanks anita and Jeffery. Works great, i actually used it on an AD job i did today and the client loved being able to see and approve on the spot. That was my first time using Lightroom and i am love it.
