    Nikon D5300 won't tether with Lightroom CC

    kevinc71 Level 1

      I have tried to get tethered capture to work with Lightroom CC and my Nikon D5300.  Lightroom says the camera is not tethered.  I tried a trial of Nikon Camera Control Pro 2 and had no problem at all tethering the camera.  Below are the specs from the system info dialog on Lightroom CC.

      The camera is a Nikon D5300 with the latest firmware updates.  C 1.01 and L 2.009


      There seems to be no answer for this problem.  I have already followed the troubleshooting tips on the Adobe help site.  To no avail.  Like I said, the Camera Control Pro 2 program does this, but Lightroom CC does not.  I do not want to shell out more money for Camera Control 2 Pro.  How do I fix this?
