I have noticed that Sony A7R IV and A9 II models do not support live view over the USB 3 connection. Is that just a software feature/compatibility that has not been implemented yet and is in the pipeline?
Both Sony A7R IV and Sony A9II are already supported in Capture One Pro, Capture One Pro (for Sony) and Capture One Enterprise.
- Update your camera firmware to the newest version.
- Make sure that the PC Remote function on the camera is enabled. Please refer to your camera's manual.
The live view is recommended with the USB 2 cable and the USB-Micro B connector on the camera.
If you update the firmware of Sony A7R IV / A9 II to the newest version, the live view will work with USB 3.
Tethering works with the USB 3 cable and the USB-C connector on the camera.
If the suggestions above have not resolved your tethering or live view issues, consider checking the following articles as well:
