Regretable as it is for a Nikon user to say this, the Canon USB cable is the only choice for shooting teathered to your laptop. No other maker (to my knowledge) makes a cable of this length and quality with interference filters fitted to both ends, facilitating reliable teathered shooting with out the need for "pigtail" cables and data-loss prone couplings

Quality USB cables can be had for under $5. $39 is way too expensive, regardless of construction quality. The transfer rates will not change as long as the cable is capable of the USB certification (2.0, 3.0, etc.).Buy it if you have money to burn, go to[*] or [*] for similar functioning $5 cable if you would rather put your money into the camera.

          Comments about Canon IFC-500U USB Interface Cable - 15.4' (4.7 m):

          The cord provides plenty of length and then some for shooting tethered to the computer. Transfers images quickly as well. Would recommend for any photographer using Canon.

                This cable is long enough, that I can set my laptop up with enough room so that images can be viewed easily.

                The cord is long enough, that I do not need to worry about tripping over it.

                The cost was a bit high, but it had the length I needed.

                            We rent photographic equipment, both lighting and camera, and these cables are very durable. They last quite a long time, and stand up to multiple users and conditions. I really like the protective tubing near the ends of the cable. Our clients use this cable when tethering the Canon Mark III & Canon 5D Mark II.

                                Just what I was looking for, use it in my little back yard observatory to connect the camera to the main control computer used for astroimaging, mount control & such. Nice to have a single cable to completely control the camera without having to use an extension to the shorter stock cable the camera came with.

                                  Good for shooting tethered to my printer.

                                    There are, of course, other options for tethering your DSLR, but I had grown used to the one that came with my EOS-1ds Mk. III, and when it was destroyed, I knew I wouldn't be satisfied with anything else. Just long enough, with good quality connectors on both ends, and fits nicely in the clamp at the camera. Mostly, I appreciate that this is a supple, flexible cable, that it drapes nicely over the handle of a camera stand, takes an easy, natural coil for storage, and unrolls without tangles.

                                      I recently bought an event printer and could not afford the option of wireless. This cable is long enough for me to shoot to the printer and still be mobile at my backdrops. This cost a fraction of what the wireless transmitter option cost and frankly I think it is just as effective.

                                          Gives you the ability to move around when not shooting on a tripod or when your computer is not next to you.
