I recently started shooting tethered on my Canon with Lightroom, switching from DPP which was a very buggy connection. My initial experience suggests that shooting tethered with Lightroom and EOS Utility is much more stable, but there was one little bug (not a big deal for sure, but the inconsistency was a little irksome to my client who was standing over my shoulder). I was shooting interiors, arranging objects and lighting, and shooting a periodic test shot. Only about half the images would automatically load up into the viewer. The others I would have to double click on he thumbnail to load. It was totally random. Not a big deal but.....Any thoughts?

No ideas? I've got two shoots with the same client this week and would like to figure it out.

I used the same setup and everything worked fine, every new pic showed up in the library when it came in. But: if you are in the develop module, this doesn't work, there you have to manually select aka click the newest pic.

that's the only idea i have...

Dear Kirk,

Have you tried tethering EOS Utility -> Adobe Bridge?  I find it quite speedy as Bridge renders pretty fast to screen.

How does one setup Bridge for tethering? Does Bridge have a "watch" folder setup? I haven't found it. I guess you really don't need one as long as Br is open to the file you are writing to. The advantage to LR/DEVELOPE is the ability to immediately fine tune the image without opening up the image in the CR plugin. Not a big deal I guess.

Kirk If you posted a little more info you would probably get further! What canon?
What tethered software etc..?
5D stinks for tethering and I think C-1 is the only real stable tethering program. so you would probably be better off shooting tethered to it and then having a watched folder for Lightroom.

It is a 5D. The EOS Utility and Lightroom combination is very stable., a no brainer. Compared to writing to DPP which was worthless. No issues with LR except getting the image to automatically load into the viewer, as I said, which in my mind is a Lightroom settings issue. It is like every third test image which will not pop up in the viewer and I have to click on the thumbnail. Just an annoyance really.

Are you looking for the images in develop or the library? I have them pop up all the time in the library after I have double clicked on the first image to come in to enlarge it.

I was in develop mode. I am on a shoot this weekend in Amarillo and will try it with the library mode tomorrow.
