Funnily enough, that is one of the things I thought of to do with it. But really it is evidence the whole thing was not thought out from the start.

I don't get what you mean by "iOS or Android change", you mean an update?

For example, the retina screen requires app developers to update apps for best performance. Probably also the new aspect ratio of the iPhone 5 will make that desirable. Android apparently requires lots of per-device testing and tweaking.

If the app is like any other app I use on my phone, it should be a breeze to update.

The point is not whether you can do it, but whether Canon could be bothered. You can't tether a 5D on a new Mac, period, and it isn't Apple's fault. Lightroom 4.3 can't do it either. If, say, I had a little business doing Santa portraits, for which a 5D is still quite adequate, I'd be incandescent over that.

Lightroom tethering, in case you don't believe:

Sorry, but to me Canon's add on software *does not exist*. If they care to open the protocol and/or third parties provide it, then OK.
