We can go a step further. How many of you Canon shooters shoot tethered, either in the studio or on location? How many have tried to do it the "Canon" way? Whoever the hell at Canon (trust me, I love the hardware but hate the software) thought that it was a great idea to have to use two programs in order to have a usable tethering solution should be fired summarily for abject stupidity. Unfreaking believable and a situation I've complained to Canon about on numerous occasions but no one seems to understand. Now, you can tether into Lightroom, but LR is missing too many features that you really need, but it does work and I know professionals here in L.A. that use it. The best solution, once again, comes from Denmark in the form of CaptureOne. Seamless and reliable and all in one program, but the coolest little feature, is the ability to overlay a jpeg of your layout (and vary the opacity, size and position) into the capture window so you can check on the fly if you're shooting to your comp or not. Art directors love love love this and so do I. I keep meaning to spend a day (or whatever it takes) doing a complete critical review of DPP for Canon, but never seem to have the time to really get into it, and frankly, I don't think it would make any difference, as they seem hell bent on maintaining the same basic direction of their current product.
