    Welcome to the forum. You have discovered one of the complaints about ON1 tethered capabilities. It has been something that has been requested for years with ON1. I don't know if it will ever happen or if they can even do it. I wanted to do what you are asking, but not bad enough to pursue a solution. Ha!!

    Re: Tethered shooting

    OK - with getting to know the DCM software more I find it solves all my problems - in spades!

    Just need to unravel the mysteries of the manual to find how to use focus stacking and I'll be a happy chappie.

    On1 is great and the development is moving along at pace, so shouldn't be long before we get full functionality of live capture

    Re: Tethered shooting

    Thanks to all who assisted I am successfully shooting tethered

    Couple more questions if I may?
    1. The cable I got is only 1.5m long, so a bit limiting - I attached a 5m extension cable, but now both DCM and On! don't pick up on the camera. The extension cable works correctly on other devices - anyone have any ideas on this?
    2. When I minimize DCM, it doesn't show in the bottom tray and won't open again, until I restart the computer - any ideas?

    Thanks for any assistance

    Sorry about not noticing this for a month. Specifications for USB are maximum length of 16 feet, which is about 5m. Making a longer cable may or may not work, it will be device dependent.

    No idea what DCM software is. I assume not DigiCamControl which I am using. I have also discovered Nikon Tether NX since getting my Z5 body. Unfortunately it only works with Z system and the D780. But I noticed the LiveView on the camera screen works while connected, but you lose LiveView on the controlling PC screen. That actually is not as desirable to my astrophotography uses.

    Re: Tethered shooting

    My apologies - I meant DCC - finger trouble

    My 5m cable is very good quality - plays music on my TV from a flash drive without power. It is probably the camera which can't output over that distance.

    Managed to get hold of a 2m extesion and this works correctly and is good enough for my needs.

    Thanks for the interest
