Capture One 22 Pro can't see my Sony Fx3
Have been using Capture One 22 Pro with the Nikon D4 for months and it works fine. Now trying to use the Sony Fx3, capturing stills in this situation, and although the iMac 24 M1 computer knows the camera and data card is tethered, Capture One does not see it.
I've scrummaged through numerous help pages, watched videos, ticked and unticked boxes, changed security settings on the Mac and engaged in plenty of rebooting.
Is it because the Fx3 is a video camera too? Hoping someone else has experienced this and has a success story for me.

It should work with .ARW files as the FX3 appears to be one of the Sony models supported by Capture One:
If the Mac has connected to the camera as a Data device (based on seeing the memory card) I suspect that Full Capture One style tethering, where the C1 software operated the camera, may not be available.
As I recall some Sony cameras may have multiple connection modes (although I think Fuji is the leader in that type of functionality and allowing cameras with memory cards to avoid OSs immediately connecting as data resources) so you might wish to double-check what the Sony offers in that respect.0

I always use a card reader because I like speed. That probably explains why I tend to forget that some users connect the computer to the camera to ingest image files. My older Nikons had a menu item to toggle the camera between presenting itself as a mass storage ("disk") device or as a media transfer protocol ("MTP") device on the USB port.0
No help, but I heartily approve of the use of "scrummaged"!
