How to integrate Capture One in my tethered shooting
« on: January 29, 2016, 05:59:23 am »

summary: is it possible to shoot tethered with Canon EOS utility and still be able to use Capture One's "next capture adjustment" feature?

I mainly photograph hotels and use the Canon EOS utility for tethered shooting plus bridge and Photoshop for viewing and adjusting pictures on the spot. Capture One Pro was very appealing when I first heard about it. I was hoping to use it to incorporate tethered shooting, viewing, and adjusting in one program. Alas, that is not possible because the EOS utility provides better camera control such as enabling exposure bracketing, viewing in camera level, and providing live grid lines.

Nonetheless, I am still interested in using Capture One for viewing and editing files on the spot and especially so for its feature "next capture adjustment". Is it possible to shoot tethered with the Canon EOS utility and still have this feature work? It would be really convenient if for example I can apply perspective correction to each file instantly after it is downloaded from the camera instead of opening it in Photoshop to apply the changes manually.

Thanks

Short answer: use Capture One > Camera >  Select Hot Folder / Hot Folder Enabled

Long answer: consider Capture One training. Forums and web searches are great to answer the questions you know you have. Training is helpful in that it answers questions you didn't know you have. For instance, see the video at the bottom of this link: HDMI on IQ3 100mp; it shows the overlay feature which can be used with the final captured image or with Live View.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong but when I use the option of the Hot Folder the "Next capture Adjustment" does not work. It does when the camera is connected to C1 directly.

I like a lot the implementation of Tethered capture from C1, but it lacks some features available in dedicated tools such as "controlmynikon" for Nikon cameras.

Correct. It does not work when you're not natively tethered.

To some extent you can use the "Save as Default" functions in most tools to get closer to that functionality, but it's not a perfect replacement for it.

The short answer from Capture One teams is no it's not possible:

It would be really great if Capture One included bracketing in live tethering. I read in version 9.1 release notes that a new tether engine for canon was included. Maybe this should make it possible to include this feature, even in a better way than currently available in EOS utility.
