    This is a great product for connecting both my Canon 5D MK II and 1Dx to my MacBook Air when shooting at client sites.

    The "Tether Tools JerkStopper Camera Support" to hold the cable to the camera is critical to keeping it connected when moving around. The orange color provides great visibility for people who are around the shooting area as black cables just seem to disappear from view.

    Why not 5 stars? I'd like to see the plugs for both the computer USB and the camera mini USB fit a bit more tighter as they both feel that they will come out too easily. The Tether Tools JerkStopper Camera Support & Tether Tools JerkStopper Computer Support should be standard with this cable.

    The orange color led me to this one over the Canon version, but unfortunately, the cable did not fit snugly into the camera. Everytime I flipped the camera vertically, it would come loose and lose connection. This may have been a one off issue, but I returned this one and got the Canon version instead.

    A genuine time saver

    By Chip

    Comments about Tether Tools 15' (4.6 m) TetherPro USB 2.0 A Male to Mini-B 5-Pin Gold Plated Cable:

    I was asked to shoot portraits for the university where I teach. As an Adobe Lightroom user I knew the software provides for tethered shooting so I purchased the cable manufactured by Tethered Tools. What a time save - portraits are imported directly into Lightroom for any post processing and cataloging. Reviewing the shot on a laptop is much more efficient than the monitor on my Nikon D3. The length of the cablemis perfect and the color is a constant reminder to watch your step.

      I bought the cable specifically for a photo booth-esque setup at an event. We shot tethered to the computer and printed souvenir photos instantly. The bright orange color and 15' length were both very handy.

      Comments about Tether Tools 15' (4.6 m) TetherPro USB 2.0 A Male to Mini-B 5-Pin Gold Plated Cable:

      Bought to shoot tethered in Lightroom. Works great and is easy to see, but as I said seems a bit over priced to me. I also recommend purchasing the little attachment holder to help keep it attached to your camera and not get ripped out.

            The bright orange is great to have in a dark studio. Or even a lit one, for that matter. It helps to not trip over the cord. Solid connections! Good buy!

                  We are using this for a HS commercial photography class. It is tethered to Lightroom and works well with our D7000 and 60D. the orange color helps with potential trip hazard. I'm sure we will order more in the future.

                    I've never shot tethered before. I'm a believer! This cable (along with the table and accessories) kept me organized and, more importantly, gave me confidence that my laptop and camera were secure. Worth the investment in my opinion!

                                  We needed a tough, long cord to go from a Canon mkIV to a laptop for comercial shoots and this was the answer. I was a little put off by the bright color, but I am glad about it now. No confusing it with anything else laying about. Highly recommended!

                                    I bought this to add to my D300s in studio and it works great. I use this in conjunction with a MacBook Pro and Adobe Lightroom 4 for tethered shooting and it works great. No set-up needed, and transfers fast into Lightroom software.

                                      Heavy duty cable makes connection issues a thing of the past.

                                        I use this cable to connect (tether) my camera to my computer, so i can immediately review the photo on a big screen right after I click the shutter. This is great for food or product photography!!

                                        Orange color helps prevent tripping!

                                        I'd give this a 5 star but the first one I received was bad. It didn't communicate with my 5D Mk II tethered to LR-5. I called B&H customer service and they quickly determined it was a bad one. Right away they emailed me the warranty papers and sent it back.

                                        While waiting for the replacement, I taped two cheap USB cable together to make 10 feet tether. It works, but I still prefer this high quality orange USB from tethered tools.

                                            This is EXACTLY what I wanted and how did I know? I didn't! However, there was a patient, kind, polite and knowledgable salesperson at the NYC B&H store who researched for me the right cable to use for tethering. Great product, AWESOME service.
