    Tethered shooting for D7000

    I understand tethered shooting with the D7000 is not yet supported by Lightroom as of v3.3. I wasn't aware of that when I purchased LR since I figured a camera as huge as the D7000 would certainly be supported but whatever.

    That leaves me looking for a (free) Windows alternative or some sort of ninja workaround. I'm aware of Nikon's Camera Control software but since I've already gone through the trouble of purchasing LR I sure don't want to buy anything else. Any suggestions?

    Finally, regarding updates made to Lightroom, how does Adobe manage this? Do they release incremental patches or updates or are they done all at one time when a new version is released? In other words, is there any hope of a patch that will offer D7000 tethering or is the release of v3.4 my next reasonable chance?

    I've never seen a patch coming into LR outside of a dot release, and for sure not for new functionality. So your next reasonable chance is LR 3.4.
