Smart shooter 4 plug-in update now enables Sony tethering support for Adobe Lightroom Classic

Photographers can now enhance their tethering experience in Lightroom through this direct integration from Tether Tools.

Tether Tools announces an update for their Smart Shooter 4 plug-in for Lightroom Classic. As the industry leader in solutions for tethered capture, Tether Tools developed the plug-in to expand Lightroom Classic’s native tethering capabilities. The result is a smooth, stable tethered connection with added Sony compatibility and valuable features for Nikon users. The Smart Shooter plug-in for Lightroom will provide users with efficiency, enhanced workflow quality, and delivering a more unified tethered experience.

Smart Shooter 4 is a digital photography workflow application that allows users to fully control a camera from a computer, giving the freedom to explore and experiment to help take the perfect picture. Automatic download and display provide the ability to evaluate photos in seconds, and real-time live view output will help focus and compose the image. Scripting language lets users have control of their camera, allowing them to take multiple photos with varying settings just by clicking a single button.

This integration with the Smart Shooter Plug-in adds onto native Lightroom Classic functionality to provide:

  • Compatibility with Sony cameras
  • Automatically apply Lightroom presets
  • Save to card and computer simultaneously
  • Advanced tethering features
  • Barcode scanning
  • Multi-camera connectivity

Smart Shooter comes in two versions, both for a single user, but with different options and prices.  Smart Shooter 4, which costs £67.69 RRP, can be used with one camera and offers tethered shooting, remote control, live view and prepackaged scripts. Smart Shooter 4 PRO has the functions from the base version but offers multi-camera control, through the Lens Barcode and QR code scanning, external API integration and custom scripting. Priced at £189.62 RRP, it also allows users to shoot simultaneously with up to 8 cameras.

For Sony and Nikon users, the Smart Shooter Plug-In for Adobe Lightroom will be available on colorconfidence.com and through Tether Tools retailers globally. Each purchase grants a fully licenced version of Smart Shooter 4 or Smart Shooter 4 PRO which includes the Lightroom plug-in. Tether Tools is working with Adobe to make the plug-in available through the Adobe Exchange and to enable full plug-in support for Canon next year.
