At the weekend I shot tethered for the first time ever. I shoot with a Canon 7D and was tethered to Lightroom 5.4 which was running on my laptop.
I did notice that the downloading of the images was quite slow. And I'm wondering if there were any settings I could change to speed things up?
Background: I had my laptop connected to a TV so that people could see their pictures as soon as they'd been taken.
I was shooting RAW + JPEG in the camera, but I'm not sure this would have any bearing. I wasn't shooting in continuous mode, so at most was capturing 1 frame per second, but it was taking 20-30 seconds per image to download.
The clients loved having the ability to see their pictures almost immediately so it's definitely something I'll use again in future, it would just be nice if it was faster.
