If you’re a happy mac user and you’ve been missing the Tether (See your shots “live”) function in Lightroom 2, you probably going to be even happier now.
Mountainstorm has released a free plug-in callet LightroomTether. This plug-in works together with another free software for Mac, called StudioTether.
Tethering your camera, fast and easy:
Taking photos in the studio is so much easier if you can see what your doing.
StudioTether is a free application to tether your camera to your Mac.
LightroomTether is a plugin for Adobe Lightroom v2 which automates the running of StudioTether and importing of these photos into Lightroom. It provides an easy to use interface which automatically configures/starts StudioTether. Due to the integrated nature of the plugin, it provides much better performance than using Lightrooms “Auto Import folder” feature.
- Remote control of your camera & onscreen display of camera settings
- Nikon LiveView support at 60fps! (recording coming soon)
- Instant import of images into Adobe Lightroom; no waiting for Lightroom to detect the images
- Integrated with Adobe Lightroom; single configuration
Currently the plugin supports cameras from Nikon, Canon and Fuji (see a full list of supported cameras)
