Adobe - when will the Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6 be added to the list of Tethered camera support for Lightroom Classic??

 

Do you have a timeframe for when these cameras will be added?

From this topic in the official Adobe feedback forum:

 

"Tethered support for a particular camera model normally follows a version or two after the raw file support. Adobe relies on the manufacturer’s (Nikon & Canon) SDK (Software Development Kit) to facilitate the tethering of your camera to Lightroom. The timing of the release of a manufacturer’s support via their SDK greatly affects the time to release for tethered support. In addition, Adobe goes through a rigorous process of integrating the functionality of the SDK and tests tethering before support is announced."

 

Canon added tether support for the R5 and R6 to its SDK on 7/22/20, and LR added raw support for them in LR 9.4 (8/18/20), so we might expect to see tether support in 9.5 or 9.6.  A new release of LR comes out once every two months, so middle of October or middle of December.  But as dj_paige mentioned, Adobe rarely announces dates.

We are not Adobe in this forum, we are just other Adobe customers, like you, and Adobe never tells us in advance. So you will find out at the same time as everyone else finds out.

 

Also, as I understand things, Adobe needs some code from Canon, and so the delay is at Canon's end.

I didn't want to do it but I've swithed Capture One, because they currently support tethering (with live view) for the Canon R5. I've used Lightroom for 12 years but might not go back if I feel like Capture One is a better product.
