In continuum of my previous post on Aperture 2.0 and why I didn’t switch to Lightroom, I’m compiling a list of cameras that are reported to work or reported not to work with the tether feature at this time. I will be updating this list regularly so the best way to stay informed is to subscribe to the feed.
Camera By Brand and Model
|EOS-1D Mark II N||•|
|EOS Rebel Xti 400d||•|
|Powershot G9||Works but problematic|
Note: If a camera is not listed that means I have not heard reports of it working or not.
The Apple support page on tethered shooting states the following:
- Aperture uses a standard protocol for tethered shooting. Some cameras use proprietary protocols, and may only support tethered shooting with their own software.
- Some cameras may need to be set to a specific storage protocol to allow tethered shooting. In some cases, tethered shooting may only work in PTP mode, in other cases, USB Mass Storage may be required.
- Some cameras support both remote computer control and camera control of the shutter when shooting tethered, others may only support one or the other.
- For best results, use Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. Some cameras require Leopard to support tethered shooting.
If you have a camera that is not on this list and is working or not working with the tether feature, post back and let me know. If you see an error in this list I would appreciate it if you told me so I can keep this list complete and as accurate as possible.
