However, I'd like to add one of my main frustrations with LR when shooting tethered while using a Nikon (I use the D850) is the INABILITY TO SHOOT DIRECTLY TO BOTH THE COMPUTER AND THE MEMORY CARD. Sorry for yelling...but really?
In defense of Adobe LR, I did read somewhere that it is Nikon's fault that the files cannot be saved to the card when shooting tethered - something to do with their SDK . But, I've read that LR allows files to be saved to the card with Canon. What's the deal? I'm not aware of whether or not Capture One allows Nikon files to be saved to a memory card while shooting tethered.
Also, a live view mode would be very useful when the camera's viewfinder is not easily accessed - a scenario that often happens when shooting down on objects in product/museum photography.
UPDATE, just heard from a fellow photographer friend that Capture One also has the same limitation for capturing Nikon images - can only be saved to computer but cannot be saved to camera's memory card. However, like LR, Capture One allows Canon to be saved to card as well as computer. Go figure! I guess it would make sense to contact Nikon to let them know this is a frustration for some photographers who shoot tethered.
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.
