Tethered Shooting via Computer

Recommended Posts

Affinity Photo is a wonderful piece of software, so thank you for your awesome dedication! One request I have is to incorporate a tethering tool which will allow for compatible cameras to directly link to a computer via cable which will give the user full manual control of the camera via the computer. Is it possible to add this in Affinity Photo or would such a feature belong in a cataloguing program? Thank you again!

Is it possible to add this in Affinity Photo…

 

As AP is developing to a very serious pixel editor, going

the tethered way would not, IMHO, be meaningful. One

will shoot tethered to see the recorded files in real time

and tweak all pre SR parameters. AP's chosen direction,

as I see it, is to operate post SR.

 

For tethered shootings, a dedicated RAW converter with

a proper tethered shooting sessions feature is the right

way to go.

 

would such a feature belong in a cataloguing program?

 

In no way! I am not using catalogues anywhere in my pro-

auction nor do I teach or recommend to use them.

 

As I said before, for tethered shootings, a dedicated RAW

converter with a proper tethered shooting sessions feature

is the right way to go.

 

Through mine, I can (from the computer), controls remotely

both my shooting camera and all used Profoto flashes.

Thank you for the response. By cataloging I mean something equivalent to Adobe Bridge. I often take many in-studio shots and sort through them or highlight favorites on the computer screen. From there I would open a RAW converter for chosen images. To eliminate having multiple programs open and consolidating into one would be very helpful.
