    This is not officially supported, or a feature of the iPad app. But you may find your camera allows it in the menu or settings - check the manual and have a play around with the settings. Let me know how you get on!

    Hi Jack. The camera setting Tethered Shooting Auto in the GFX menu is supposed to enable storage to card but this does not work. Mark

    Hi Mark Syke – does it behave the same way with Capture One Pro? I recommend getting in touch with Support if the behaviour differs. This is most likely the intended behavior, but there's no reason why we can't look to improve this functionality in the future.

    Hi Jack. I don’t use Capture One Pro for tethering so I don’t know the answer to that question. Perhaps someone else has tried this?

    officially this is not supported but I just shot tethered to iPad Pro with GFX 100s and files were stored on iPad and internal SD cards.

    Hi Paul. How did you manage to do that? What connection settings are you using on the GFX?

    GFX 100s connection menu USB auto

    I am running iPadOS 16 beta so maybe that has something to do with it?

    I am having issues exporting originals, keep getting permission errors.

    In short: if your camera has the option in its menu and you are running iOS 16 beta, then you may find it is possible. Good find paul schefz!

    However, it remains unsupported. Your best bet is to check your camera menus and manual for the time being, whilst we work on supporting this feature.

    Quite frankly it is bad form for CAPTURE ONE to pass the buck for this issue. It is the software that causes the issue. It’s not the camera. In every instance that this one copy behavior occurred it is always the software. Any software can change the behavior from the software if the programmers are willing to do it. If it is as designed then you don’t understand the importance of file security. All photographers of a pro nature want to keep the files on their card AND in the computer. It is foolish to design something that doesn’t allow for file backup in the camera card. I’m so surprised that shooting on Capture One on my computer I get to store on my camera and in the computer. And on the iPad version I can’t do that? That’s foolish. It should be fixed. That should be considered a big!!!!
