    Do they use the SDK, or like Lightroom do they simply use PTP?

    We don't have a time table for when this will be integrated but truthfully we've had little to no demand for it either.
    Nikon likely has the Camera Module in the SDK or in the Nikon Camera Control 2, so then there is a chance this workaround could suite your needs.

    Just install 2.16 of Nikon Camera Control 2 (as a trial, you don't need to buy it) and then note the workaround. Substitute one for the other and hopefully you'll be up and running.

    Since I plan on getting the 610 as a back up and for shoots when I don't need the pixels of the 800, consider this a request for tethered support for the 610.

    Or you could follow Phase's clearly stated process and raise a support ticket to the effect so that it can be registered and monitored with all the others.

    Or not. Your call. Currently it doesn't matter either way since you are 'planning' to get a 610 so you don't actually have a problem. What happens if a 620 is introduced before you get around to buying a 610?

    Dear Drew.

    I have followed by your suggestion. It works. Now I can use my D610 on the studio.
    Thanks for the substitute. I hope that Phase One make native tethered support for D610 with the next update of C1.

    Regards,

    Grant, what was the purpose of your post? I was simply posting my suggestion. Clearly Drew monitors these forums, and as you stated, I do not have a need for a support ticket.

    As far as when I plan on purchasing a 610, it is of no concern of yours. When I make an equipment purchase, there are many decisions to be made. One of which, when it comes to camera bodies, is whether of not we can shoot tethered to Capture. I shoot tethered 90% of the time, so that is a huge part of the equation.

    I'm not sure if you were trying to be funny, or just being snide. If it is the former, I apologize for taking it wrong. If it is the latter, is that really necessary?

    Hello Vic1

    I think I can see both sides of this. The key features are that you are heavily into tethered shooting and are looking to upgrade to the 610. The problem is that PhaseOne does not 'do' road maps and your best and only effective way forward is to raise a support case. As I understand it PhaseOne and Cap1 staff cannot routinely do this for you or at your request.

    I note that PhaseOne does not have a forum for tethered shooting with DSLRs, and yet there are quite a few posts on this topic. I suppose it can be regarded as a workflow matter, albeit hardware rather than software. I have never 'done' tethered. Any chance of an educational post from you?

    Best wishes.

    Vic,

    I had no intention of of attempting to be funny or snide.

    The point has been made many times in these forums that they are intended to be "User to user" forums and that it is Phase's stated policy to consider requests people raise (licensed users or not which seems quite brave and open so I assume the same applies for prospective users of new or recent cameras from various manufacturers) based on the number of request officially registered via support cases.

    Currently the operation of the forum sometimes involves input from Phase staff but it's not guaranteed (it's not intended to be but who knows if that will change at some point?) so in theory and possibly in practice your question might be ignored. However if you register the request as a support case we are told it will not be ignored and will very likely become part of the decision making model for the product. (Of course with certain products from certain manufacturers one might assume that if something is technically feasible it will be done as soon as practicably possible. However the number of requests recorded might influence how soon "soon" might be.)

    On that basis I think your request, as a support case, would have some 'standing' within the process whereas current policy suggests that it would not have any guaranteed standing offered only as a posting on a forum.

    That really is the main and only point. However I also suspect that a forum based request that is only a 'maybe' is further weakened compared to a full support case where one might present it as "If I buy a D610 in the next month will I be able to shoot with it tethered from day one. If not is it likely that support will be forthcoming <at a point of your preference> or are there reasons why an alternative choice would be a better choice for immediate use?"

    Or something like that.

    I think the (reasonable) assumption from Phase is that creating a Support Case suggests a measurable assessment of commitment but that a forum posting may be less significant come what may - even if there was no stated policy to that effect.

    So, neither humourous nor snide - just an attempt to provide advice about an approach that could give an improved outcome from a stronger (as seen by others) request.

    All the best,


    Grant

    I realize you might, but to have quantitative data to prioritize new features we DO need a support case asking for this feature.

    Other than that I think you and Grant should take any concerns elsewhere.

    This thread was regarding the Nikon D610 tethering.
    1. We don NOT offer support at this time.
    2. The workaround suggested, as verified by the OP, does work. So for anyone else wondering, please follow the previously mentioned workaround.

    Hi,
    Your workaround --based on years ago info to get a nikon D2x to tether will not work. The camera control bundles I can not find in nikons current software. Please try it for us working pros who use D610 as a back up for D800. Give us new up dated directions please.

    I would also like to point out that the Capture Control 2 workaround doesn't appear to be a solution. I have downloaded the 2.16 and tried the 2.17 and neither has a controller for the D610.
    Is there anyone that can upload the camera module required to get this tether working as i'm either going to have to take this D610 back to the shop for a refund or get rid of Capture One which would be a pain in the butt as i use it to run my Leaf digi back at the same time on specific shoots!

    Just to reiterate, there is NO specific D610 control module when either Nikon CC 2.16 or 2.17 is installed on Mac OSX 10.8.5.
    The only specific module in the folder is for D40 and that's it.

    If someone could advise please as i have a shoot in a fortnight that i NEED to have this working for or i'm binning the capture one.

    Cheers!

    Bump.

    Still nothing. Anyone got this 'workaround' working yet? I still can't connect my d610 to c1.

    And again a week later there is still no update or fix. Does anybody still read this thread or can I assume that I won't be using Capture One for my next shoot?

    The workaround provided does indeed work.
    I believe that 'Breather' created a support case to resolve this as there was some confusion regarding the steps.

    Anyone finding this thread now rest easy knowing that if you follow the workaround steps you'll have no issues with tethering. Though not technically supported it certainly does work.

    * UPDATE
    7.2.3 Does have the new SDK from Nikon and supports the D610 without this workaround.
