I just got my 5Ds and immediately tried to tether shoot with it in Lightroom. No luck. 5Ds is not yet supported. I was wondering if there is a ETA, when it might be added to my beloved LR?

Thank you

Yes please, give us an ETA. Or allow us to apply automatic crops to files when we have to use the EOS utility to shoot tethered.

Adobe is waiting on Canon to add the 5Ds to their SDK, which hasnt' been updated since last November:

However some have been able to hack things into working by copying a DLL from the EOS Utility to the LR Tethering plug-in folder:

The article has step-by-step for the Mac and here is a screenshot of the DPReview post that shows how to do it for Windows:

OK, thank you Steve for that. I will try it.

Do we contact Canon to harass them?
