Lightroom 4.1 is not seeing my Nikon D700 in tethered mode.
(I'm on a big Mac Pro running 10.6.8.)
The Nikon has the latest firmware.
I have started the computer, the camera and the software in different sequences always getting the same result---No Camera Recognized.
Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.
The D700 does not require a menu selection setting adjustment for tehtered shooting ... it is accomplished directly via the camera's firmware. Same for D800/D800e/D3s/D4 and the D300s ... and several other Nikon models ...
There were some problems reported for tethered shooting with OS X 10.6.8 that I don't think Adobe has addressed. Apparently Apple changed how USB connections are handled in that OS version, though other tether software options seem to work ok ... beyond that, you can use the Image Capture.app (found in your Applications folder) ... if the app recognizes the camera it will show the files contained on the camera card, secondly, if you go to File>Take Picture, it will open a dialog window that will allow you to actually trigger the camera with the space bar on the keyboard (or the camera's shutter release) and download the image taken to the folder you select in the option on the top right of the dialog ... If this works, then you know your camera and USB cable are working properly.
You can always use Image Capture to tether to your camera, then point Lr to a watched folder of the images being captured ....
