This may have caught your attention, right? I’m sure you have heard about Scott Kelby before, he’s a famous author of many books about Photoshop and Lightroom. I have followed Scott for a long time, watching his online videos/tutorials and I have learnt a lot at the beginning. He had lots of interesting tutorials and it was fun to watch.
I remember when Lightroom 2 came out and for the first time we could start shooting tethered straight from your camera into Lightroom. This was an amazing new feature in Lightroom 2 and it still is a great feature in Lightroom 3 (it has been improved a lot in Lightroom 3, because now you don’t have to install all the software that comes with your camera, in case of Canon it used to be around 700MB!).
Somewhere along the time, I remember Scott Kelby saying that when you shoot tethered in Lightroom you shoot straight from the camera into Lightroom without writing the files onto the memory card in your camera. This sounded interesting and I did some tests on my camera but apparently the images are being saved onto the memory card, at least on my canon camera… So I’m not sure what he meant by saying that you can skip your memory card and shoot straight into Lightroom… Maybe it works like that with Nikon camera, or maybe some other Canon cameras? I’m not sure. With Canon EOS 7 that I use, the files are being saved onto the memory card anyway.
Maybe someone here can put some light onto the thing discussed. Let me know what you guys think.
