Tethered Capture in LR3 was a huge step forward for using LR to capture in a production environment. One UI feature that seems to have been overlooked is a keyboard shortcut for hitting the Capture button. Having to find the cursor and then drag it to the button to click is an annoyance (granted, a small one) when shooting multiple captures throughout the day.

Support for Schneider USB Electronic Shutter would be nice as well.
Also could we have nested user export presets for batch processing multiple user presets. Thanks

As a working professional with demanding production requirements, my workflow runs on keyboard shortcuts. I’m excited about many of the improvements to LR4 but the one shortcut I’ve been most hoping for is not included.

There is no keyboard shortcut for firing the camera remotely when tethered. The user must use the mouse to click on the Capture button in the Tether dialog box. This can be awkward and slow production down, especially when working with a 2 monitor setup and you need to quickly fire a shot without having to search for where the cursor is on your screen and then navigate to the Tether dialog box and click the button. A keyboard shortcut would really speed things up when you’re shooting 50+ shots a day.

It doesn’t seem that the software engineering would be so difficult to Implement. I know that Capture One has had this ability since before LR introduced tethered capture.
