Capture One Pro + GFX 50S tethering

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I downloaded the new version of Capture One 11.3, which supports tether shooting on GFX cameras, but I'm having some trouble getting things to work properly.

When I connect up the GFX 50S to my MacBook Pro the software sees the camera and lets me trigger it remotely. But the RAW image that's transferred over only shows up as a VERY low res preview. The rest of the image is missing. The files have transferred, because I can see them on Finder and open them through Lightroom/Photoshop. Whatsmore, I can shoot Raw files to card and open them in Capture One 11.3 OK.

Anyone else had any problems?

Yes, I'm also having problems, but they seem more fundamental than yours! I'm using the full version of Capture One Pro 11.3. The GFX 50S is not recognised at all when I try to tether it. It is connected to the computer (MacBook Pro) properly, as it shows up in Fujifilm X Acquire - which also means it's not the cable causing the problem. My PhaseOne connects normally, but C1 thinks the GFX 50S isn't there. I've tried all the different settings in the connection menu on the camera, and it makes no difference. The Fuji raw files are recognised when imported - it's just the tethering that isn't working.  

Any thoughts/experiences would be very welcome.

Bruce -

Just off top of my head, try quitting Fuji Aquire. It might be hijacking the cameras connection to your MBP. 

Strangely, after speaking with CO support, mine started working perfectly without me changing anything. Not sure why so I don’t have full confidence in the set up yet. But quality of Raw conversions in clearly superior to ACR. 

Let me know how you get on?
