Tethering Stability Mac OS 10.7 / 10.8 with Capture One 6.x

In the last month we have had several support cases regarding the limitations and stability of tethering of Capture One 6.x within various Apple OS'. The majority of these performance challenges have come from Canon users. From all the data collected we have the following suggestions.

    For the best stability when tethering Canon Cameras please use Capture One Pro 6.4.2
    within the Apple 10.7.4 Operating System

    If you are using a Canon 5D Mark III or Canon 1Dx please use Capture One Pro 6.4.4 within the Apple 10.7.4 Operating System

    It is NOT SUGGESTED YOU UPGRADE TO 10.7.5. We have have had confirmation that the recent Apple Operating System update to 10.7.5 will cause all the same conflicts as 10.8.x.

    As the Canon Software package used in any version Capture One Pro does NOT support the Mountain Lion OS (10.8.x), tethering with a Canon Camera on this Operating System is not possible.


In addition, when using Capture One Pro 6.4.3 or Capture One 6.4.4, the tethered connection established between Camera and Capture One only occurs when the software is first launched. If the Camera or computer should go into a Sleep Mode or be Physically Disconnected, it is necessary to relaunch the software to reestablish a connection to Capture One.

We are hopeful that with the support for Mountain Lion (10.8.x) in an upcoming SDK release from Canon, the above conflicts will be resolved.

Please now reference the Capture One 6 update, 6.4.5.
This version introduces the new Canon SDK compatible with 10.7.5 and 10.8.x.
