Easy and quick Tethering?
Mark Perlstein, Photographer, Photo Editor
Plano | TX | USA | Posted: 2:12 PM on 01.15.16
->> I am shooting with Nikon, and want a easy tether into my Macbook Pro. I have the tether cable. All I am wanting is for the art director to view the photos as soon as I shoot and save the Raw files to a folder on my desktop. No processing. Lightroom is OK but I want the photos to fill my screen as I am shooting. I also have Nikon Camera Control, but am not crazy about it either. What other options do I have?

->> Mark,

I've only had to shoot tethered once, for a live lighting demo during a presentation, and found this highly featured software that's very Nikon-supportive and is available free (you're welcome to donate - there's a tab on the web site).

->> I use CamRanger to tether. I have two blogs i have written about using it.

One just about the tethering and how to get images to pop up on things like iPad for art director or laptop

Second post shows how I use this to make prints like at a photo booth.

Hope these help.

->> I looked at the CamRanger when looking for a wifi tether. What I found out is that the CamRanger is actually the TP-Link MR3040 with CamRanger's firmware installed. If you don't need to remotely control the camera and just want to be able to send images from the camera to a computer the MR3040 works GREAT right out of the box. This is what I am using to send images to my laptop.

There are some open source firmware replacements out there that purport to give you all of the functionality of a CamRanger including remote control of the camera. I can't speak to how well those work as I haven't tried them.

A generic TP-Link MR3040 is under $40 on Amazon.

->> In Lightroom, you can have the view going full screen as you shoot. Just hit "F" to fill the screen.

->> There have been issues with tethering a Nikon to Lightroom with El Capitan. I don't think they have been resolved. Has anyone else been able to tether? When I connect either a D7000 or a D3s, Lightroom says that no camera is detected. Manual importing works fine, but not tethering.

->> Glenn,
No Nikon or Leica/LR/El Cap tethering as of today.
Adobe is supposedly "working on it..."

Adobe Support advised me to not install El Cap if I need tethering.

Too late...
