Can anyone confirm successful tethering of their D4 with Lightroom 4.3? I just tried and although Lr recognizes the camera the image files are all corrupted. A black exclamation remark appears on the top right of each image and Lr reports "Lightroom has encountered a problem reading this photo". When I review the image it is completely pixellated Lr reports "there was an error working with the photo".
Camera settings are Large Fine jpegs. Checking the files on my HD they appear to be normal so the files are transferring correctly...just not importing correctly into Lr. According to Adobe website the D4 is supported for tether.
A few sub-questions...is tethering only supported via USB and not ethernet? The only reason I wish I can tether with ethernet is because I have much longer cables.
Secondly, is there a way to store a copy of each image on the memory card as well as on the computer? I tried setting "backup to secondary card", but no deal.
LR, at this stage does not work via ethernet...which is sad. However, you can always, use Nikon's own version of ethernet tethering via the D4 and a browser. Are you familiar in how to setup the D4 to do this? If not let me know and I will give you the instructions in how this is done.
2. I have not found out a way to leave a copy on one of the cards.
@Benji2505 The USB cable I was testing with was 3 feet short.
I will definitely try again...maybe with a different usb cable now that I know it can be done.
