    Adobe makes use of the camera vendors sdk for tethered conection. Therefore, they depend on Pentax. The only cameras currently supported are lsited at 4.html and as you can see - no Pentax.


    FWIW, I don't see tethering coming any time soon, that is, unless Pentax make it happen.

    There is a third party application that is free called PK Tether. It supports most of the current DSLR models from Pentax.

    True on the not any time soon, but we can all drive this by sending the Pentax folks email about it so they know we all are interested. I have some very solid connections with the company, and will post any email addresses I can soon. Am checking with a contact in US support now.

    Can i jump on your bandwagon? I'm fairly new to photography and have spent a small fortune on Pentax, now I find that one of the most useful aspects of photogrphy, Thethering, is not available for Pentax in any of the major Mac/Adobe software apps. If I had known this I would have gone for Canon or Nikon. Pentax need to re-think their game plan if they want to be competitive in the future market,


    PK Tether does not work on a Mac via Parallels/Windows. I've tried it.
