Before you start shooting tethered, it is highly recommended to make a proper setup. See the recommendations below that will help you to streamline your tethering workflow.
First of all, please check whether your camera is supported for tethered shooting on this page.
1. Tethering cable should not be longer than 3 meters. The longer the cable is, the weaker signal you will get. Thus, it is highly recommended to take a cable that is less than 3 meters long.
2. Refrain from using adapters and extensions as those also greatly impact the signal quality. If an extension is required, then use powered extensions/hubs for amplifying the signal.
3. Do not charge the camera unless this becomes essential. Disable any power-saving settings on the camera.
4. If there are any other items plugged into the workstation, please remove them while shooting tethered.
5. Remove any memory cards from the camera.
6. After tuning up the hardware, launch Capture One and start a tethered Session.
- Locate a Session on the internal drive. When a Session is on the external drive or in a cloud-based location, it may slow down the process of transferring images.
- It is recommended to locate a Session in a shared area on the computer rather than on the Desktop or in User-specific folders.
- Create a separate Session per each job/project.
- Utilize Session Favourites and Smart Albums for the image organization. This structure could be saved as a template for future use.
