Simple and direct answer, thanks Rikk.
I expect it to come but who can say how soon...
Hi, I own a D810. I have the following issue; since Lightroom doesn't have tethered capture for this model yet, what are my options?
I will have a photo booth during a convention this upcoming week and I want to upload the photos directly to the company's Facebook page.
You may say: Why don't you take out the sd card, plug it in the computer and upload the pictures? The thing is that it's gonna be a contest, so at the end we will select one name and that person will take the prize. For that reason, it has to be on real time, so the person can browse on Facebook, find his/her photo and share it.
I've done this in the past with a D5100, but my main issue with my newer model is the lack of support from Lightroom.
LR can be set up to do Auto Import from a folder that a non-Adobe tethering app places the photos in. You configure this via the File / Auto Import menu item (on Windows at least). It’s up to you to find a tethering alternative.
Can LR be set to auto-publish to a company FB page as compared to a personal wall, I don’t know, so you might want to experiment with that part as well. And/or maybe you just need an assistant to do the publishing part via drag-and-drop after an Export.
There are a few third party tethering solutions out there if you use USB but most are not free. Google knows more. Lightroom should support tethering with this camera any time now but nobody outside Adobe knows exactly when.
You can also think about a wifi sd card. There are several brands of these. Apparently at least one works with the D810: Nikon D810: Camera WiFi Cards and Compatibility | Eye-Fi Support. You just set up an ad hoc wifi network from your computer and connect the card to it or use the on-site wifi and have the software dump the raws/jpegs in a watched folder that auto-imports into Lightroom. This might actually be faster than a USB cable if you only have USB 2 depending on the speed of the wifi.
