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.

      Bought to use when photographing Portraits and Portfolio work so that I can see the images on my laptop in a bigger size during the shoot. I have only so far tested it by connecting and taking a few test shots but it worked fine.

        I did not realize how bad my old cable was until I started using this one. Fast data transfer and a great length. Glad I didn't go shorter.

          The perfect cable for my studio setup. Plenty of length to run from the camera to the computer and with the jerk stoppers attached, you don't worry about them pulling out accidentally.

                  I have used this cable for several portrait shoots so far. At first I was using the USB cable which came with my Nikon D7000, but it was too short (3 feet). I purchased the Tether Tools cable for a longer reach. I gained something else unexpectedly: a more reliable connection. With the Nikon-supplied cable, I often had trouble getting my Macbook Pro + Lightroom combo to recognize that the camera was attached. I'd have to restart Lightroom and/or turn off/on the camera. I thought this was 'normal' behavior, until I started using the Tether Tools cable. I get a flawless connection every time with no fiddling. Well worth the money.

                    I use to shoot tethered with the standard cable I got from Canon. It works fine except it's short and because it's black, you can easily trip over against it.

                    This TetherPro USB cable is exceptionally durable and highly visible. It's impossible not see its orange color! The best part of it is the length. No more worrying that I will overextend the camera or the laptop.

                    I'm using this with my Canon 6D.

                                  The cable that shipped with the Canon 1D X was far too short to be useful. This cable is very sturdy and the orange color is very visible and prevents tripping even in low lit environments. It is also less expensive than the Canon replacement of equivalent length.

                                      The product works fine for tethering the camera to laptop or when downloading the photographs from the camera. The orange color makes it easy to spot in a busy shoot, however I would recommend using a black wire when shooting a reflective subject.

                                      This is exactly what I was looking for. Wanted the orange color so people see it while walking around the studio area.
