Live view and tethering problems with Sony A7R IV




  • Isara Fey

    Did this work for anyone? .

    I have walked through this help item and the other one suggested and the camera still has not identified (nor the a9ii).. Capture one 20 Pro doesn't seem to recognize/ pickup the camera after plugging in whereas the sony thing picks up the camera immediately ...  

    PC Remote 

    USB Power Supply Off


    the only workaround was setting up a hot folder which was not ideal for what I was trying to accomplish, especially after upgrading

    Had no Live View in CaptureOne 20 with my 7RIV. After updating the Sony firmware to version 1.10 it worked.

    A7R3, latest firmware (3.10) and live view not working on Mac no matter what.

    Works fine on Win 10.

    Live view was working on my A7RIV via USB-C on the old version of Capture one 20.0.2 of my laptop (which i use for remote shooting).


    Then yesterday I saw an update for 20.0.4 and installed it. What a MISTAKE!!!  Now Live View for my A7RIV doesnt work (tried both USB C and microB ports). I emailed Capture One support. Lets see what they say.


    I can get Capture One to download pictures off my A7RIV, but it will still say "No Camera Connected"....and therefore I cant use Live View or capture pictures using it. 


    However, I have confirmed that I can still use Live View on the OLDER version of Capture One 20.0.2 (which I still have on my desktop) and thats why i believe this new update from Capture One has bugs.

    Also, I can get my A7RII (not IV) to work with Live View on the NEWER version of Capture One 20.0.4
