Hello:

I am really frustrated. I was shooting a newborn photography session this afternoon using a Nikon D800 and a tethered connection to a Windows 8 notebook. I was able to take about twenty pictures successfully using the a tethered connection using Lightroom 5.7. However, I closed Lightroom, and when I restarted it, I received a Camera Not Found message when I attempted to restart the tethered session.

I have tried another USB cable and deleted the Lightroom Preferences file, in addition to restarting both the camera and computer, but nothing seems to be able to get Lightroom to detect the camera again.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Grayson

If the camera times out by shutting down (or a failing battery), or if you're using LiveView and it shuts down, the tethered connection will fail. In other words, it seems that you must have a live system at the camera end. I have to start with LiveView on at the camera end (Canon 7D and 7D2).
