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 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.

                            I didn't think I needed this, until I realized the number of times I walked around in the studio with my camera tethered and accidentally pulled out the USB cable I used or stepped on it. This item is bright orange so you always see it and can always find it.

                              I got this cable to replace the standard one I had rolling around. It wasn't cutting it when shooting raw into Lightroom. So I got this cable in hopes it would speed up the file transfer rate and it did it's job. I'm now able to shoot raw into Lightroom with confidence that it's not going to slow my shoot down.

                              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.
