Notes on Canon cameras
* For the 60D, 5D Mark III, and 1D X, a card must be in the camera for tethering to work properly.
** Using the 50D in Windows, images can fail to import if the CompactFlash® card is inserted or removed during the session.
||Minimum Lightroom version required|
Notes on Nikon cameras
For all Nikon cameras:
- Tethering with the following models may be unreliable on Mac OS when burst shooting: D300, D300S, D700, D3, D3S, D3X, D90, D5000, D7000, D5100, D7200
- If you trigger the shutter with the tether bar capture button, the image must finish downloading before another photo can be captured. Triggering a capture with the shutter release button on the camera does not have this limitation.
- Images do not save to the compact flash card. They are downloaded only to the computer.
- If you're using Lightroom Classic version 8.1 or earlier, only one Nikon camera can be attached at a time for tether. In Lightroom Classic version 8.2 (February 2019 release), support for tethering multiple Nikon cameras has been provided.
For all other camera models that are not listed in this page, contact the camera manufacturer to get information about tethering support in Lightroom Classic.
