Lightroom issue to watch

A small Lightroom issue to watch if you sometimes shoot tethered (i.e. with the camera connected to the computer in real time). Like me today. Connect with a cable, then File-Tethered Shooting-Start and you’re good.

But. Since LR 5.0, this sometimes stops working. At random intervals. Sometimes after 15 minutes, sometimes after many hours. Then you have to stop and start tethering.  So if you tether, make sure you check after every shot that that shot gets to the computer.

So far, Adobe has not acknowledges the issue, but that is nothing new. Pretending it ain’t so is nothing new to software companies – any software companies. Alas. Yes, it makes financial sense, but it is dishonourable.
