I am attempting to do tethered shooting out of Lightroom Classic to a Fuji X-T3. I have Creative Cloud desktop and keep everything auto updated, including my camera's firmware. I purchased the plug in via Adobe Exchange and it shows it is acquired. However, it does not seem to be installed and none of the instructions are accurate to what I see on my screen. I am signed in to Adobe Creative Cloud, synching is on, so I am at a loss as to how to get this to work. I cannot seem to find it via the Plug-In Manager, for example. I would not be happy to have spent $80 uselessly, so I am hoping someone can give me instructions that I can follow. Any guidance appreciated.
First up, please accomplish the steps below as to share your actual version and OS info. Oh, never trust auto updates.
In LR click on Help, click on System Information, click on Copy. Paste that info into a reply, at least from first line down to just past Plug-in info.

Also, and I have not checked on this yet, but some cameras need to have an SD card actually installed for tethering to work, not all, some.
hmm, I was going to check at this link, but it only talks of Canon and NIKON; A list of cameras that can be tethered to Lightroom Classic and Lightroom 6
I have SD cards in.
Does this link have anything you have done or need to do, note that I have not attempted tethering, so no lessons learned
And another bit of info
and from a o a link in the above : About the difference of the function among the tether shooting application software.
Thanks for the info. I have looked at all that and the upshot was to purchase from Adobe the plug-in (via Exchange). the issue is getting Lightroom to recognize the Plug-in and the instructions do not mirror what I see via Creative Cloud. So this may be a call to Adobe which, as I understand it, is more $ for the "incident" to add to the cost of the plug-in I just bought which should be the correct one. So I have posted here and on the Fuji forums to try to find and X-T3 user who has made it work.
I see from your system info that it does list FUJIFILM Tether Plugin PRO. When you open the Plug-in manager (in LR) does it show up?
No, it doesn't.
Ooop, I take that back. I just restarted everything for the third time and now I see it. I will get back on the thread if I cannot get it started from here. Very weird.
And, now as I know the Plug-in name, I can google on it, and I assume you got it from:
I do do see some limited instructions as to setup. Now one bit refers to the in camera setting for how the cameras USB port is to behave. An issue can exists with such an instruction as Fujifilm does not appear to be consistent with the options camera model to model. You probably have something like three options, two of which will not work for tethering.
The vid uses an X-T2, so a bit dated and not a perfect match to an X-T3 settings perhaps.
Still not connecting with the camera, but possibly someone on the Fuji sites can help who has similar set up. I think I am going to be glad I also have a Canon for what I am trying to do....
Thanks, I posted over there as well and also emailed Adobe support.
I will refrain from asking this at the Fuji-X Forum,
But you may want to add what your in camera setting for PC Connection Mode is:
Adjust settings for connection to a computer.
|USB CARD READER||Connecting the camera to a computer via USB automatically enables data transfer mode, allowing data to be copied to the computer. The camera functions normally when not connected.|
|USB TETHER SHOOTING AUTO||Connecting the camera to a computer via USB automatically enables tethered shooting mode. You can also use FUJIFILM X Acquire to save and load camera settings, allowing you to reconfigure the camera in an instant or share settings with other cameras of the same type. The camera functions normally when not connected.|
|USB TETHER SHOOTING FIXED||The camera functions in tethered shooting mode even when not connected to a computer. At default settings, pictures are not saved to the memory card, but pictures taken while the camera is not connected will be transferred to the computer when it is connected.|
|WIRELESS TETHER SHOOTING FIXED||Choose this option for wireless remote photography. Select a network using DCONNECTION SETTING > NETWORK SETTING.|
|USB RAW CONV./BACKUP RESTORE|
Connecting the camera to a computer via USB automatically enables USB RAW conversion/backup restore mode. The camera functions normally when not connected.
USB RAW CONV. (requires FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO): Use the camera’s image processing engine to rapidly convert RAW files to high-quality JPEG images.
BACKUP RESTORE (requires FUJIFILM X Acquire): Save and load camera settings. Reconfigure the camera in an instant or share settings with other cameras of the same type.
DPOWER MANAGEMENT > AUTO POWER OFF settings also apply during tethered shooting. Select OFF to prevent the camera turning off automatically.
Tethered shooting is available with software such as Hyper-Utility Software HS-V5 (available separately) or FUJIFILM X Acquire (available for free download from the FUJIFILM website) or when the FUJIFILM Tether Shooting Plug-in PRO or Tether Shooting Plug-in (both available separately) is used with Adobe® Photoshop®Lightroom® Classic CC.
Thanks, I am also thinking about the USB-C piece. Tethertools indicates a booster may be necessary for this type of cable. I think I will switch over to the Canon to make sure that path works. If it does not, the cable is implicated.
USB Tethered Shooting Auto. Bingo. Thanks much.
Please do not forget resolution in the Fuji-X Forum.
Can you help on how you resolved this issue? have the same problem. Thank you.
