Lightroom 5 and tethered shooting
« on: February 13, 2014, 07:01:09 AM »
So I do not read the blurb until I have to...
I tried hooking up my A99 to Lightroom 5.3 on the laptop for a tethered shooting session.
LR would not recognise the camera.
I have used tethered shooting before with Sony software on the A700 so tried that- no luck.
The Sony software of course still works.

So I check on the Adobe site and only High end Canons, Nikons and a couple of Leicas are supported.
Not Happy....john

I don't have an a99, but yet method I use is to use the sony software and Lightroom together

The sony software to drop the images into a folder
Lightroom set to 'watch' that folder

Is the sony software not functioning with the a99?

Thanks Michael and Terry.  I assumed that because I had the remote capture software on the laptop from the A700, that all I had to do was have the laptop recognise the A99 and off it would go.  Well it did not so I will load the latest sony software and try again.
Terry's suggestion is only $30 or so and worth a look as well....
I will update this after I have a solution.....john
