I have a Canon 20D. Tethered capture was working just fine before I upgraded to Lion, but now it doesn't. A snapshot of the console log shows the detail:

We are aware that there are some connectivity issues with Lightroom's tether capture feature after updating to Mac OS 10.6.8 or 10.7. We're working on the issue.
