and Photoshop staff
I have a big problem since the new catalina 10.15.2.0 i can't use the tethered mode. Lightroom don't see my canon 5D Mark III. Could you fix the problem ? Thank you. I uste the new macbookpro 16.
It's a known issue as mentioned in the tech note: https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-classic/kb/macos-catalina-compatibility.html
Right now, there is no workaround, other than trying from a machine with MacOS Catalina 10.15.1 or earlier.
I am a Nikon guy - but I'm sure this applies to Canon as well.
I found a work around today. At least it works fine with Nikon Camera control Pro 2. I'm pretty sure it will work with Capture One & Lightroom as well.
My 2011-17” MacBook Pro died a couple weeks ago. Time for an upgrade. Got the new MacBook Pro 16”. With Catalina - no choice.
Wanted to run some older software for business, needed no higher than Sierra- OS 10.12.6. So I bought the software-Parallels Desktop -to install legacy OS virtual machine.
Unfortunately had trouble running the installers, got hung up about 2% from done. It may be a hardware issue on the newest Macs- the MBP 16 and probably the new MacPro just released-because the people at Parallels tech support did tests on their machines running Catalina and they were able to install OS 10.12.6 fine. My guess they’re running Catalina on the last 2019 - 15” MBP.
BUT- while waiting for the new laptop to arrive, we did a test with the trial version of Parallels v15, and created a working Sierra VM then today we just copied that file-22gb- to the new 16” and Parallels opened that file immediately no problem
1 problem down. Then copied in Filemaker and the files they work. Cool now I’ve got my invoices and equipment and software databases. And yesterday my copy of MS Office 2011 to.
Then- Nikon Camera Control and NikonView. Will they work????
YES! They work, my D850 connects and opens in NV, AND... I was able to choose the destination on my host drive- outside of the Virtual Machine, or onto an external drive if I want
I even shot rapid fire at least 20 frames and all loaded quickly , no crashes I am really pleased...
Now I've not had a chance to really work in Catalina with Photoshop & Lightroom for anything real, just enough to see that it basically works. I suppose if it really has issues I could put them in the VM too, but hope not to. More Testing to follow
If you do install Virtual Machine this way, don’t forget to install the Parallels Toolbox into the new VM which will allow you to get full screen resolution. If you don’t you’ll only have 1024x769 for the VM window
It all sounds like a big pain - but I was surprised at how easy and well it works- once you get the VM installed. That's the glitch for now. But if you or a friend has any older machine- older than the just released 2019 models, you'll be able to create the VM there, and just copy that Parallels file over.Hope this helps all of you
Hi guys, in the first day of photoshoot with my new MacBook pro 2019 Catalina 16 inch I tethered my Canon 5d Mark III with Lightroom Classic last version and it's start working good, but after when my camera go in sleep mode, the tethering never happens again. I did all suggestions. I was update My Camera, and was update Lightroom version., turn on and off. I was switched different USB cables, delete everything from memory card . I use it with memory and without memory card. And it still doesn't work. I tried to solve this problem around four days already. Everything working on my Windows computer. So the problem is not in the camera or cord. Please help me to fix this problem thank you.
Tethering in Lightroom doesn't recognise my Canon 1DX mark II after update to Catalina. Any workarounds?
I'm a pro photographer with busy studio shooting tethered with Canon DSLR. I "accidentally" upgraded to Catalina since I wanted to wait a little but figured it should be safe after several months!
I need to know if there is a "fix" coming in days/weeks rather than months. Then I have to downgrade to Mojave but that's a major task! Can't even import directly from camera...
I was unable to tethering cannon 5drs to Lightroom 9.1 operating MacOS Catalina.
I uninstalled Lightroom 9.1 and installed Lightroom 8.4.1 used 2 different that worked for other devices an still failed to tether. what else can I try.
So, it's not just Catalina, Mojave also very problematic, when LR tethering is on. It seems, that the problem is more complicated... Canon, Adobe, Apple...:-D
Procedure: (equipment and software used)
1. connect camera (5D4) via WiFi to MacBookPro (16" - late 2019 - MacOS 10.15.2)
2. start EOS utility and configure it to save in a folder 'to_import'
3. set up 'automatic import' in Lightroom Classic (9.1) to import from this folder
When the camera goes to sleep, the connection is terminated as it is when I change the camera battery. The connection is unrecoverable.
However, I was able to restore the connection reliably when I completely reestablished the WiFi connection from the camera. With a little practice, this can be done in half a minute.
I hope this helps somebody.
i noticed the issue this morning during a pro shooting.
I did an other tethered capture last december when I already had my new macbook pro with Catalina 10.15.2 and it worked
So I reach the conclusion that it is probably an Adobe update installed this month.
This is unacceptable.
Does the people from Adobe know that we do professionnal activity with they products ?
