Lightroom Self-Portrait Tethered

Lightroom Tethered Shooting Upgrade to Specific Cameras

-- This Entry Shot November 22, 2018  -   --

I recently upgraded Adobe Lightroom Classic CC and was pleasantly surprised to see Adobe has upgraded the tethered capture feature to be camera specific - there is an option for Canon and another for Nikon, Sony etc.

The most welcome addition is the increased functionality in the tethered window which now allows remote control of aperture, shutter and ISO along with the older shutter trigger button. I also noticed there is some feedback now, it seems faster along with no problems for once - this app used to be buggy and would cut out, necessitating camera restarts etc. Just in the nick of time, as many photogs have begun switching over to other apps for tethered capture out of frustration with it. Good upgrade Adobe! Here is a self-portrait I managed using it from the chair, with the exception of focusing the camera first.
