  1. Hi Paolo,

    I haven’t tried it in previous versions of Lightroom, but I believe it should work in exactly the same way, as you can still set up watched folders in previous versions. The version 1.4 update is free for any Lightroom owners, and has a few fixes and new features worth upgrading for in any case!

    Great question!

    does it work with older cameras? i have a digital rebel 300d and i can’t find that canon download you mentioned anywhere.

  3. Paolo

    other little question: I’ve a EOS 400D but i can’t find for it the software listed in your point 1.

    where can I find a similar software to be able to tethering my camera?

  4. We have a Pentax K10D and are trying to shoot into Lightroom via Pentax Remote Assitant as your blog suggests. The G3 mac with 10.5 system connects to the camera but Pentax Remote Assitant does not see it. We have upgraded the camera and remote software. Any ideas!

    I’ve tried to set up my tethering with Pentax K-10D on my HP Laptop, have downloaded all nessesary software and firmware but when I plug in to USB just the window come’s up asking where I want to transfer my pic”s. In my top LCD window of my camera just the letter;s PC come on. Have no camera functions. The program Pentax Remote loaded into my browsers, Firmware 1.30 loaded into camera. Any suggestions. Really need help.

    Thanks I now have my K10D tethered to my laptop


    1. Downloaded and installed the latest remote assistant V3 from Pentax (supplied camera software was needed to be installed first)
    2. Setup Lightroom to auto import
    The main issue that I found was that lightroom needed an empty folder to point to.. my documentspentax1 in my case
    3. Connected and turned on
    4. took an image or 2 (raw)
    5. waited 1 – 2 seconds till lightroom had auto opened / imported
    6. Had to manually move to next photo on the keyboard
    7. File had been imported and moved to the import folder

    Happy thanks

    Can this technique be used with a Pentax Km? If so, how the heck do you get it to work…..I installed the Pentax Remote 3 and my camera does nothing! HELP!

    This looks really good. I’m interested in trying this with my Pentax K10 and Mac PB as I would really appreciate the chance to see shots on a larger screen before packing up and moving on to the next location. However – some questions (1) anyone have any experience of doing this with Adobe Bridge CS3 instead of Lightroom, (2) or for that matter with Aperture 2.1.4?. (3) It’s possibly too early to tell of course, but I suppose it would be too much to find a way to do it with iPad to save toting a PB on a shoot? – that would be really useful.

    I have a question why does it take longer to preview on lightroom than in the canon utility itself. is there any Idea so it load faster in my light room(3). thanks

  10. I have a D7000, too, and in Lightroom 4.1 the tethering process is about as simple as it could be. There is one dialog with some options for where to save files, etc. After that, each photo is automatically imported.

    Here’s the Adobe help page for tethering:

    And here’s a list of the supported cameras:
