    Do you happen to know whether the latest Capture One tethers successfully to Nikon, Sony and Canon cameras on Mac OS 10.15.3?   What about the new 10.15.4?   (I remember that 10.15.2 broke tethering).

    Thank you.

    Hi Art,

     

    As Capture One 20.0.4 supports macOS 10.15.3, feel free to the latest software update and capture tethered with your camera and Capture One (note that macOS 10.15.4 is not supported yet). To check whether your camera model is supported for tethering, visit this page - https://www.captureone.com/en/features/supported-cameras

    Why does every little Mac OS update seem to break Capture One? Finally the software was updated to support 10.15.4 and the software was working fine and now that Apple released important security updates (10.15.5) it's broken again I don't go through this with any other software. Please update soon, last time I had to wait months for the software to work properly.

    I have been suffering constant interruptions to my workflow with very erratic tether connection between my cameras and laptops. I'd restart the camera and software, swap cables, sap cameras, swap laptops. Sometimes this would work until the connection broke down again. 

    During the Covid-19 lockdown, I updated to the latest version of Capture One 20, updated firmware on all my Nikon D850 and the latest version of Catalina as well as buying new tether cables - specifically Tether Tools TetherPro USB C Male to Right Angle Micro USB C to connect cameras and laptops directly with no additional short cables.

    I'm hoping my relatively new old Tether Tools Active Extension Female USB 3 to Male Right Angle USB # cables will work fine after all the software/firmware updates primarily because I like to have a short (1 meter) tether cable attached to the cameras and a very short (10cm) Male USB C to Male USB 3 cable - all to allow for easy breakaway in case people (me included) trip over the cables.

    My question is - does adding 2 or 3 connections reduce the power in the cable enough to knock out the tether connection even if the 2 addition cables are very short and I'm using an active extension (though not powered with an AC connection)?

    Guess I'll have to buy the recommended Star Tech Active Extension with external AC power to test it out.

    The 10cm USB C to USB 3 cable connects to the laptop to try prevent it being dragged over if someone trips on the cable - so both cameras and laptops both have safety breakaway protection.

    When is Capture One expected to be up to date with Catalina 10.15.6?? After updating my OS and Capture One both in May, the software works with the exception of tethering which is my primary purpose for using C1 at all. Any word on how long it generally takes to get Capture One 20 Pro up to working order with the latest Catalina system?

    Updating to the latest versions of Catalina and Capture One has resolved the chronic tethering problem I experienced for the last few years. I also think that upgrading to the newest MacBook Pro 16" probably increased the juice needed to power the signal between camera and laptop.

    (1) Another plea for more aggressive testing with newer versions of MacOS: 

    I pay the monthly fee for Capture One primarily for tethering; it's extremely important to my photography.  Please try to be more aggressive about supporting newest version of MacOS.  I find that I always hold off for a long time (months) updating my MacOS to latest version and the only reason that I have to do that is Capture One.  

    That said, thank you for maintaining this very clear support page regarding versions:

    (2) ARM chips

    I hope you have someone now testing Capture One using Apple's ARM development kit (which includes an ARM-based machine due to Apple's phasing out Intel chips).  Adobe has apparently already been partnering with Apple in development of a native version of Photoshop for ARM chips (or at least this is Apple's claim).   

    Reports are that the ARM chips are quite fast and don't even need external graphics processors.  We shall see.

    I think that you would start with ensuring that the Intel version of Capture One runs successfully on their emulator.   Apple makes strong claims for their emulator!   Then look into what it would take to create a native ARM based version.  

    Thank you.

    Is anyone at Phase One monitoring this message thread?  Thank you.
