Posted by: on Oct 4, 2012 | 2 Comments

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 releases new update version Lightroom 4.2.  A slew of new cameras are supported for tethering including Canon EOS 5D Mark III and Nikon D800.

Newly supported cameras for tethered capture:

  • Canon EOS Kiss X5
  • Canon EOS Kiss REBEL T3i
  • Canon EOS 600D
  • Canon EOS Kiss X50
  • Canon EOS REBEL T3
  • Canon EOS 1100D

Bugs Corrected in Lightroom 4.2:

The following bugs that were part the Lightroom 4 releases have also been corrected.

  • Stacked photos were hidden in both the Grid view and Filmstrip. This occurred when photos get unstacked as a result of enabling auto-stacking.
  • Folder stacks with virtual copies were unstacked when moving to another folder.
  • When scrolling through the filmstrip (at somewhat fast rate), occasionally a “gray” image was displayed for an instant and then replaced by the correct image preview.
  • The Navigator Panel in Map did not pan correctly.
  • Parents and synonyms of “do not export” keywords also did not export.
  • Occasionally were unable to publish videos to Facebook
  • Audio did not play in video files after creating a slideshow that contains music (Win 7 only)
  • Image select arrow on keyword list didn’t display when keyword list contained a large number of keywords
  • Unable to edit Lightroom photos as jpegs in Photoshop Elements
  • Carriage Return in either the Title or Caption field invalidated a Flickr upload.
  • Tether capture bar disappeared after deleting photo (Win only).
  • Back Cover of Book layout had Horizontal text on spine rather than Vertical
  • Sharpening was not applied to books that were exported as JPEG files
  • Double-byte characters were not exported to Books saved as PDF files
  • Unable to type accented character in book module in LR4
  • Luminance Noise slider was unresponsive when Clarity is greater than 0.
  • Develop keyboard shortcuts (+ and – keys) no longer worked in older process versions such as PV2010

  1. What’s not being said is that Adobe has dropped support for several older cameras (i.e. Canon 20D, 5D, 350D, etc.). Those of us using perfectly good old cameras are no longer able to do tethered shooting because we have updated to LR 4.2.
    I don’t understand why because my computer OS hasn’t changed, the camera hasn’t changed and I can’t see that LR has changed significantly between 4.1 & 4.2.
    I am not going to go buy a new camera just to get tethered shooting. I’ll find a different solution to accomplish the same result – Use the Canon EOS Utilities to tether, put the images into a “watched folder” so LR automatically imports them. A PAIN, but I can continue to use my “OLD” cameras.

  2. Hello. Now that my D800 can be tethered to Lightroom, I find that my camera’s LCD monitor does not work when tethered via USB to my Laptop/Lightroom. Any advice on this issue?

    Thanks in advance.
