People ask me about tethering all of the time. In Lightroom it was a struggle, even with Tether Tools cables, but when I started using Capture One, I wasn’t thrilled that the images were only written to my computer’s hard drive. So I set up this workaround so that photos would write to both my Canon camera and computer, creating an instant backup of my data and allowing me to review images in the EVF and on the LCD.
By default, in Capture One Pro, tethering with result in your images only being written to your computer. I personally think this could be risky if you have a hard drive failure and it also makes it so you can’t review images in your EVF or on the back of your camera. But there is a work-around.
The first think you want to do it go to Capture One 20 – Preferences – capture and then make sure that canon is unchecked and then restart the application.
Make sure other applications that might try to access your camera are closed, like photos.
Now open EOS Utility 3 and click on remote shooting. It might automatically launch when you connect your camera.
Then click on the folder icon on the top right under AF/MF.
Under Destination folder browse to where you would like to write the images. For me that’s always the date and subject and then a new folder called raw. Now press open or hit enter. Make sure create a subfolder is unticked and then press ok.
Now you want to click on the computer icon right below ISO. In the popup window select computer and camera memory card. This is the key to having your images write to both the camera and the computer. Hit Ok.
Next in Capture One go to the Library tab and press plus icon next to folders and navigate to the raw folder you just created and the Eos utility destination and select add. And then open it in the library.
Now go up to camera – select hot folder – then navigate to our raw folder and click open. Then back under camera make sure “hot folder enabled” is checked. Next, Just pop off a few frames and make sure its working. And we’re done!
