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.

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.
