I havent found a clear answer neither in the LC articles nor in the forums..
Is wi-fi tethering possible with LC?
I'm on MacOs Monterrey, connected to my Nikon D750 wifi but LC doesnt detect the camera at all.
I am able to tether via QDSLR https://dslrdashboard.info/ using wifi so the camera is connected to the laptop correctly, it just doesnt work with LC.
So Im just wondering if I should just get a cable because its is a known fact that Wifi Tethering doesnt work or is there still sth I can try?
I presume that by "LC" you are referring to Lightroom-Classic LrC.
I researched the Nikon D750 WiFi App and found it only tethered to an iPhone/iPad.
If QDSLR can 'Send / Tether' files to a folder in your Mac, then you may only be able to use the 'Auto Import' feature of LrC.
In LrC Auto Import setup- Define a "Watched Folder" (that must be empty!) and a "Destination Folder" (where LrC will store the files).
Then set up QDSLR to 'Save/Send' the files to the "Watched Folder". As you shoot the images will go Camera > QDSLR > Watched Folder > Destination Folder, and appear there in the Catalog.
My experience of D750 and Windows-10 using a USB cable to tether has always been successful. I cannot comment on Mac and Monterey iOS.
hi Rob, thanks for your reply.
Yes I did mean Lightroom Classic indeed. The Wifi option does sound like a bit of a hassle in that way so I think I'll just buy a cable and try that. Thanks!
