Capture One 7.0.2 + Canon tethered = pain (still)

7.0.2 still doesn’t fix the canon reconnection issue. For those that don’t know if your canon camera goes to sleep or is disconnected you’ll need to restart the whole app before you can reconnect the camera. You can always set the camera to never sleep, but make sure you have plenty of batteries.

I decided to take things into my own hands and have come up with a script that restarts the internal capture core server that manages tether operations within Capture One. This means that within about 4 seconds of disconnecting your are ready to start shooting again, as opposed to 15+ seconds to quit and restart the whole app.

You can find the script here, but be sure you take note of the disclaimer.


Capture Integration and teamwork photo have both blogged about my script. I hope you guys are finding it useful.
