Looking for Lightroom tether plug-in beta testers

We need a user with one of the following cameras: Pentax K-30, Pentax K-5II, Pentax K-5IIs, Pentax Q, Pentax K-01, Pentax K-r, Pentax K-5, Pentax K-x, Pentax 645D, Pentax K-2000, Pentax K-m, Pentax K-7, Pentax K-20, Pentax K-200, Pentax K-100, Pentax K-110, Pentax K-100s, Pentax K-10

Only Lightroom 5 for Windows is currently supported. Please let me know if you interesting in earlier version of Lightroom. Mac is not supported yet.
Beta version can be downloaded here.

We can create a custom test tool for non mentioned cameras like K-3.

We're opened for suggestions.

I hope will not be treated as advertisement and this post will not be deleted.

Very interesting ... it'd be nice to finally see some tether support outside of PKtether. I assume that the 'mac not supported yet' means that there *will* be some sort of mac plugin in the future?

k-3, k-20,k-10 mac version please.
It's in earlier development stage as i've mentioned earlier. We'll release it in alpha stage as soon as it will be able to do anything except hanging the Mac Usually it takes us a month between Windows and Mac releases. But this time it can be a bit longer due to a long list of the supported cameras.

I have a K-50. I know it's not on the list, but I downloaded. I was happy that it recognized anything. It's showed it as a K-5, When I hit the Take photo button, it opened the shutter on the camera, like it's in Bulb mode. Had to close the Tether window for it to release.

Our developer can send some test tools that can try a different way of control. Please contact me via pm if you want to help us.

K10D in LR4.2 using the LR4-Beta of your plugin

- works fine (plugin button, shutter button on cam, infrared remote)
- Camera shows up as "Pentax camera"
- Settings like Aperture have to be set on camera, cannot be changed in plugin

oh and... it only transfers JPGs although my camera is set to raw.
which would be ok if the raws were saved onto the card, but they are not.
