This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: When will my camera be supported for Tethering?

tested Canon 30D and Canon 5D MII and they work fine (not happy that its not any faster at capture than LR3 was) but when connecting new 5DMIII it recognizes cam in the tether window but shows 'busy' on camera and wont allow me to click the shutter. Rebooted, restarted everything, still doesnt work...in all scenarios tested, the older cameras work no problem...

OS is Mac 10.7.3

Is there anything else you need to know?

Lightroomn 4.1 tethered shooting function does not work with a Canon 5D MKIII.
When can we expect an update that corrects this serious problem?

Working with LR 4.1 yesterday, shooting the Canon 5d mkiii. The tethering function did not work at all! I lost several frames with LR binding up, losing connection with the body, saying it was transferring data for 15 minutes to no avail. Also switched to the mkii, still not tethering. I was previously able to shoot successfully in LR 3 and 4.0 with the mkii tethered, and all my other equipment is solid. PLEASE look into this, it is an invaluable feature for me in my business.

Thank you for implementing....Hopefully the speed issues that many are experiencing with prior 4.x versions has improved...I'm fearful that it may actually be slower per a few early reviews....cross your fingers...

Pls post if you have implemented and if you can comment on the speed of ingest versus LR3. I'm hoping we start to get closer to CaptureOne speed...thx

I just tested the 5D Mark III with Lightroom 4.2 on both my desktop and laptop, and I was very relieved to see tethered capture finally working. (The only problem I encountered was that the camera kept reading "busy" when my dropbox.com app was open. Odd.) Tremendous thanks to whoever at Adobe finally got this done.

Hello,

After reading about tethered shooting,
I purchased Lightroom 4 and a new laptop with Windows 7 64 OS. I understand my older camera is not supported. (Canon 350D) Is there a work around?

Thanks,

You use the Canon utility to capture the images to a folder, then use Lightroom to "auto import" from that folder. It's a bit fiddly to get set up but works fine and fairly quickly. Email me at info@edmatphoto.com and I can send you a pdf with complete instructions if you want.
