        Comments about Tether Tools JerkStopper Tethering Kit (USB Port):

        I usually only get a chance to tether when I shoot events. We print out souvenir photos on the spot so being able to shoot straight into the computer and not mess with transferring photos from a memory card is huge. The only problem is the giant USB cable. Know it won't get ripped out of the camera is great.

              I really like the camera attachment side but I find the USB port end of it to be useless because I usually need my second port to connect my Wacom tablet. Other than that it works well.

                  This little device has been well thought out and probably designed but someone who actually needed the product.

                  Everything feels very secure and it is a relief to not have to constantly worry about checking the integrity of the cable connection in the camera. I use it with various cable-based peripherals not just the Tether Tools tethering cable.

                      I've never shot tethered before. I'm a believer! This jerk stopper gave me confidence that my laptop and camera were secure.

                                  This is used with a MacBook Pro & Nikon D3 & D3s. The cost of this item far exceeds the cost of replacing the mini USB port on the camera or laptop. Thank you B&H Camera and makers of JerkStopper.

                                        Great for use in the studio where cords can be jerked or stepped on. Much cheaper than repairing a port on the camera.
