Configured for the tethered shooter, this Tether Tools TetherPro USB Cable with TetherBLOCK Mounting Plate Kit from B&H includes the 15'-long, orange TetherPro USB Type-C male to USB 3.0 Type-B male cable along with the TetherBlock MC Multi Cable Mounting Plate, which aids in cable management and protects your camera's USB port.
With this orange, 15 ft long Tether Tools TetherPro USB Type-C Male to USB 3.0 Type-B Male Cable, you can connect a camera, smartphone, or other USB Type-C device to a computer, for the purposes of transferring data. This cable supports USB 3.0 for data transfer rates of up to 5 Gb/s.
If you connect a camera to a laptop and your camera is compatible with tethering, you can use this cable to help increase productivity during photo shoots. Rather than proof images on your camera's small LCD, they are sent directly to a notebook's larger, hi-res display. Seeing images in this way helps to review them for slight imperfections that you may have otherwise missed.
To help enhance performance, this cable is fully shielded and plated to help minimize signal interference. Please Note: this cable is designed to be used for data transfer only, and not for charging devices.
The MC Multi Cable Mounting Plate from TetherBLOCK is designed to prevent accidental removal of a cable from your camera's data ports, therefore preventing damage to the port and to your camera. By snaking a USB or FireWire, or HDMI cable through the TetherBLOCK's S-channel and attaching the TetherBLOCK to your camera's tripod mount you'll be able to shoot tethered to a computer without fear that a trip over the cable will damage the camera's sensitive data ports.
This second version of the mounting plate replaces the TetherBLOCK Slim, and adds a third channel for thick heavy duty cables as well as thin and medium sized cables. It has both a 1/4"-20 and a 3/8" tripod thread mount, allowing it to be mounted directly onto a tripod head. A 1/4"-20 slotted screw attaches the plate to the camera, and can be tightened with a coin. On the bottom of the plate are two 1/4"-20 threaded holes for adding accessories like microphones or video monitors.
