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.

We use this Tether cable for in-studio work. We really like the bright orange cable as it catches the eye and helps avoid us from stepping or tripping over it. The negative, is that it falls out of the camera side jack all the time, even if you have the Jerk Stopper the cable kept coming out of the jack on the camera. We ended up using gaper's tape to hold the cable in the camera.

        I use the TetherPro USB 2.0 A Male to Mini-B 5-Pin Gold Plated cable to tether my Nikon D700 to Lightroom both at my studio and on location, and it has yet to loose connection or fail me on the job. It's bright orange color keeps me, my assistants or clients from tripping over it and causing a big time accident.

            The cable works well with my Nikon D90 tethered to my 2-3 year old MacBook Pro with USB ports. The cable seems to be very well constructed and never had an issue with getting images to the notebook. Found the length to work very well for my small available space. Would recommend to anybody with a similar camera and notebook.

                For studio work, this is a great addition. Reviewing images in real time on a 17" screen versus the camera LCD has made a huge difference in my work. 15' is plenty for me. The bright orange keeps me aware of its presence.

                        I purchased it to connect a Nikon D4 but the part that connects to the housung which connects to the camera is too thick and I cannot close the housing.

                        I connect my 6d and Mark2 to Lightroom with this tethering cord. Would suggest this to anyone that shoots in studio and so client can live view to make sure colors are correct for apparel.

                              I typically shoot wireless tether, but I needed this cord as backup for small events where I don't want to give Murphy an opportunity to kill my workflow. I specifically bought this for use with a Canon Selphy. Works as promised, gets the data to the printer, and is long enough to give me room to move if needed.

                                  It's a simple product. It did everything it was supposed to do. The high-visibility orange was nice for shoots with a lot of crew running about, not so good for shooting some reflective product shots when I could see the orange reflecting in the product. Had to swap it out.
