Because tethering support has not been completed for that camera in Lightroom. Maybe in the next version or two.

Steve, I would think that since the 610 is almost identical to the 600 that it wouldn't be that long of a process to have it integrated into lightroom.

Theoretically it shouldn't be a long process for any camera once the manufacturer SDK supports it, but each camera needs to be programmed for and tested individually and any quirks accounted for. I think tethering isn't as high a priority as raw support, for either Nikon nor Adobe, so it takes some time to do.

Lightroom 5.3 tethering support for the Nikon D610.


The latest LR update 5.3 still doesn't provide tethering support for the Nikon D610. I know Nikon released the driver in December, i'm hoping we are not waiting for another quarter for an update that includes tethering.

When will tethering be supported for the Nikon D610 in Lightroom 5.3? LR5.3 added support for D610 RAW files but didn't include tethering - Adobe said they need to wait for Nikon to release the SDK. The SDK was released back in November.

When can we expect an update?

Tethering support was added for the D610 in LR 5.5.

Finally. Downloading now.

For me tethering is a requirement of an app of this calibre - every professional expects it. That's why we pay for the application. So it took six months to include support for the D610.

Six months.

That is clearly too long.
