The Canon Rebel t7i has been out for over a year and still no tethering support.  It just stinks that you buy a new camera that supports wireless tethering and lightroom can't catch up.  It is not because of the SDK either, because other alternative products can tether with this model.

The EOS Rebel T7i was first supported in Canon Digital Camera SDK v3.6, which was released June 2017:

Dear Adobe,

Please support Tether Capture in Lightroom for the Sony A7Riii. It would be tremendously helpful. Thank you.

New NIKON camera models are not supported - Nikon Coolpix P1000 RAW files are not recognized. How long will it take to get these updates?

When will Adobe add tethering for Fujifilm cameras like the very popular X-T20 and other Fujifilm models?

I am no expert on tethered shooting. Nikon and Canon and a few Leica models are the only cameras that are supported for tethered shooting in Lightroom. My understanding is that is because they provide a SDK that Adobe can reference. Apparently Fuji does not provide that, and therefore there is no support for ANY Fuji cameras as far as tethered shooting is concerned. Perhaps someone with more knowledge about tethered shooting and has more understanding of the technology can provide further insight.

Fuji offer their own Lightroom plug-in for tethering, so Fuji are the people you need to ask to add it.
