                    I purchased this cable to tether my canon to lightroom for shoots. The transfer speed is phenomenal. Yesterday I shot just over 300 RAW roughly 25-30 megs a piece pretty rapidly and they popped up on the screen for my client just as fast as ever. One thing to note... These can be linked together if you need to go further than 15' + whatever footage of USB you have attached to it. Perfect product and a stellar price.

                      I use this extension cable to get better signal for my usb modem. It has a repeater on it so it keeps the signal strong. Really great product. I never expected this good quality for the price that I paid.

                        I use this cable for teathered capture in Light room. The cables supplied by almost all gadget supliers who use a USB connection were just too short for my situation and I feared loss of signal by cables which were simply longer. This cable has a signal boost powered by the USB connection and works perfectly - right from the box!

                          This cable works nicely. It helps to be silver to make it more visible and less of a tripping hazard.We do gaffer tape it at the connection and at the camera and at the computer to try to prevent snapping off pins in the connections.

                              Comments about Trendnet 16.5' USB 2.0 Extender Cable:

                              I bought this extra-long USB cable to tether a digital camera to my Mac for studio shooting. It works well, looks cool, and is pretty-well built. The plug holds firmly to the camera's short, proprietary cord.

                              The box on the end is a little bulky for a cable. I put a little velcro strap on it to hang it on my belt (which is pretty nerdy, I know, but it stays out of the way). I believe cables of this length have some sort of signal amplification feature that necessitates the box, so there may not be a way around the design.

                              Oddly, our studio cat really enjoys chewing on this cable. Perhaps it has a better taste than the other 900 cables connecting lights, computers, printers, and speakers.

                              Anyway, it does it's job with style and may provide valuable nutrition too. A good buy.

                                It syncs easily with my Canon 5D to shoot tethered. Requires a USB mini cable and you may need to duct tape them together as 15' isn't always as much as you think.
