Shooting tethered?

Even though I don't recommend Lightroom for law enforcement use, it's still a valuable tool for photographers. With the newest marketing campaign from Hasselblad, a reader writes in confused about tethering.

Purchasers of the H4D will get Lightroom 4 as part of the package. That's cool. But, the H4D doesn't tether with LR4 ... yet.

From Hasselblad: "The Hasselblad and Lightroom plan does not mean that Hasselblad's Phocus software is being phased out.

Said Russell-Fish: "We will continue to support our proprietary Phocus software. This new agreement is about providing choice for our customers. Lightroom has the advantage of familiarity with photographers, digital operators and enthusiasts worldwide. Phocus still offers high-end imagists some highly specialised tools and remains an integral element of our Multi-Shot cameras as well as our Phocus Mobile application, which enables wireless connectivity for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. We are also working on solutions to tethering and batch processing challenges, and integration of those solutions is not far off."
