Hello there. I have searched everywhere online and not found a solution to this problem. I am not extremely technical but I can follow direction. It would be great if someone in this community could solve my problem.
Image capture is not working with my Canon 70d connected to Darktable for tethering. When I am in tethering mode and take a picture it does not show up on the screen. It seems like the camera is transferring it to darktable (its not recording to the sd card) but nothing shows up and I have no record of the images anywhere…
The Camera consistently connects to Darktable and Darktable allows me to start a tethering session. I dont have any disconnection issues, the live view feature works in tethering and the camera controls works.
One weird thing:
The camera will only show up on DT when i plug it into (1) of my (2) USB 3.0 ports. If I plug into the other USB 3.0 port or the USB 2.0 port it does not show up on DT when I “scan for available devices”
Steps I have taken so far:
Latest firmware is on camera. sd card is empty, used Zadig (per DT website) to install WinUSB (v6.1.7600.16385) driver on camera so it will be recognized by DT. Dissabled all other programs that support the camera. Disabled Autoplay features for the camera, sd cards, etc in Windows. Tried multiple sequences of turning the camera on/off, program open/closed, uninstalling’reinstalling, etc, etc. Tried multiple different cable lengths (3’, 6’, 15’ doesnt make a difference). Tried multiple different lenses.
Info on my setup:
Lenovo y70, i7, 16gb ram, Nvidia Gforce 960gtx graphics card, Windows 10
Dartable version 2.6.2
Teather Tools 15’ Tethering cable USB 2.0
Canon 70D, Camera Firmware ver 1.1.2,
Thanks in advance for the help.
