ill try it, but im not too sharp with lightroom. i also find lightroom a little slow to clickthrough previews.
my assistants are pretty fast with canon software (even though i hate it), so maybe just use that. i just want to see a large preview asap when im shooting.
The only thing that keeps me from shooting a lot of our commercial work with the Canon is the tethering, because with the MK2 connected to C-1 the previews are small and then there is the downside of not seeing the image on the back of the camera and the computer at the same time.
We tether for a number of reasons and it's usually project specfic. Sometimes it's to name/rename files, or background processing, or to set a look in the computer and always to give everyone a decent view of the image.
A canon that will tether fast and allow straight importation to lightroom would cover most of this territory as long as it's stable and fast.
For commercial work I would love to get out of the workflow of producing jpegs for web galleries.
A 4 days advertising shoot can take up to 24 hours to adjust, tweak and process jpegs if there are thousands of images.
Personally I miss the days of the 1ds1, as the back end workflow was a snap.
I had the camera dialed in for color and look and all we did was just drop the medium jpegs into a web gallery and upload them. Since they were already in SRGB it was just stupid easy to edit, make a web gallery and upload the files. We use to laugh about it and had great fun doing it as I could just use a laptop, set in a restaurant or coffee shop in almost any place in the world and while having an espresso put the galleries up effortlessly.
Going to medium format changed that and though C-1 is fast in processing and stable, having to produce a jpeg from a raw file from 6,000 images has become a burden.
BTW: When you tether the mark 3 can you see the preview on the back of the camera?
