Tether Tools TBPRO-ORG-US overview

  • 1Description

Helping to maintain a stable USB 3.0 connection between a camera and a computer while shooting tethered, the orange TetherBoost Pro Core Controller from Tether Tools is a 13.5"-long connector that conditions and regulates the power between devices. This helps to alleviate dropped tethering connections or slow transfers due to a computer's under- or dynamically-powered USB 3.0 ports.

The TetherBoost Pro supports tethered connections up to 16'-long, when used in conjunction with a separate 15' USB cable, and can be used with additional active extensions and TetherBoost Pros to produce working setups up to 65' long. No external power is required, as the connector actively utilizes power from the connected camera and computer, however, to reduce power draw on these devices, external power options can be used for longer shooting sessions. An included USB-DC cable permits working with an optional external power bank, or the included AC adapter, with North American plug, allows the use of AC power. A JerkStopper Extension Lock is also included, and helps to prevent the cable ends from disconnecting during use.

    Tether Tools TBPRO-ORG-US reviews

    TetherBoost Pro USB 3.0 Core Controller (North American Plug, Orange) is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just adds another point of complexity and failure Sounds like a great idea but, in use, it just added another point of failure to check for and it didn't have any noticeable benefits. We ordered two of the boosters, two active extenders, and two non active usb 3 cables for testing purposes in a large multi studio setting. Both the active cables and the boosters caused problems. Also tested this without the active cable and after half a day of use we started getting connection issues. Removed the booster and everything worked well again. Would not recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brings reliability to a tethered shooting setup. For me this is a great product. I do on site portraits at corporate events with a Nikon D800 tethered to a Surface Pro 4. Without the Tetherboost controller this setup would constantly loose connection to the point of being unusable. I proof at the time of shooting so a reliable tethered setup is essential to a smooth, quick shooting experience. I was very disapointed that I could not use my expensive D800 for this purpose. As soon as I added the tetherboost the connection became completely reliable. I could wiggle the cables, turn the camera on and off etc. and the connection remained reliable. When I removed the tetherboost from the setup I soon lost connection again. Put it back - good again. So far, this thing is great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solved Connection Problems Using it with the TetherBoost cable and active extension on a Sony a7Rii. Camera failed to stay connected with the cable and extension, but the added Core Controller solved that, works exactly as advertised, and it's been stable through 2 all-day tethered sessions so far. I feel like, for the money, this should be built in to the Active Extension cable and unnecessary... that said, the setup works great.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Maybe it will be useful I tethered my D500 to my MackBookPro using Lightroom and without the TetherBoost and it worked just fine. I added TetherBoost and noticed no difference. True I only use a 15 foot cable, so I do not know what would happen with a longer cable. I do know that hooking up the TetherBoos is easy, but when you use the protector EGG that comes with it and the external power supply, it becomes a real bulky mess. I did not return it, though I expect knowing what I know now, I would not buy it again.
    Date published: 2017-07-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from For Use with Canon 5D Mark IV and 15ft USB 3.0 Cable I bought this because the 15ft Tether Tools USB 3.0 cable for the Canon 5D Mark IV wasn't enough to tether the unit using Lightroom. The adapter works great and comes with jerk-stopper extension lock, which will definitely make it jerk-proof, but is kind of a pain to setup. I honestly don't use it. I haven't had a loss in connection and experienced any problems with this using the Canon 5D Mark IV and Lightroom CC.
    Date published: 2017-05-23
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work with my 5D Mark 4 Camera only works without a SD card. All for EOS utility, Lightroom and Capture One. Once I insert a card and try to save the image in both camera and computer, the camera freeze. I bought this tetherboost and hopefully it will resolve this problem. The answer is no. I sent it back.
    Date published: 2017-07-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect +++ Works better than expected! Stabilized my long cable and extention... I expected that... but it also doesn't need to be plugged in to work... that's a huge bonus over what I expected! Great product!
    Date published: 2017-08-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No drops I haven't had a problem with a lost connection when my Canon 5Ds R is tethered to Lightroom. However, I have only used the setup recommended by Tether Tools which includes using a TetherBoost Pro.
