  • 1Description

The orange USB 3.0 Type-A Male to Micro-USB Right Angle Male Cable from Tether Tools is 15' long and has a right-angle design that routes the cable along the device. This cable is suitable for transferring data and providing power to digital cameras or storage drives. It features a TetherBoost Core controller that boosts and regulates the power coming from a DSLR camera or a digital back system. This controller provides consistent power to maintain a stable, reliable connection. To reduce signal noise and transmission errors, the cable is fully shielded. Furthermore, Tether Tools has designed this cable with SuperSpeed USB 3.0 technology, so you can quickly finish the transfer job with speeds up to 5 Gb/s.

Tether Tools CU61RT15-ORG Reviews

USB 3.0 Type-A Male to Micro-USB Right-Angle Male Cable (15', Orange) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 645Z is different Contrary to the TetherTools website, this cable will go UP if you plug it into a Pentax 645Z. Apparently all other cameras with this connector have it facing the opposite direction, so that the cable will indeed hang down. But the Pentax seems to have reversed this. Otherwise it's probably a great cable for tethering!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Fast, it's Reliable Being a cable there isn't much to say other than it's fast, it's long, and it's reliable. I primarily use this to shoot product, a situation in which I nearly always shoot tethered. Shooting solo the lag doesn't necessarily bother me. Working with a crew that lag can be crippling; the art director has to wait for the image, they have to relay their changes to the stylists, and any lag that takes place after the picture is taken is only amplified further downline. Long story short, if you shoot solo this cable is more of a luxury than a necessity. With others on set, though, it will make a world of difference. Pro: Blazing fast data transfer. Con: Isn't compatible with the jerk-stoppers that are becoming more commonplace among newer cameras. (Shooting on the 1DX II, I can say that it absolutely isn't compatible. That said, simple fix would be to get the cheaper, non-angled cable).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product would buy again for sure. I purchased this product to shoot tethered in the studio. The bright cord makes it easy to keep from tripping over and having an angled connection to the camera makes it easier to stay attached. So far it is perfect for what I need.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just ok, very very pricey. Issues fitting onto a 5ds / IV I ponied up to a "proper" cable, my cheepies were crapping out at about every six months.? It is a good durable cable materia. ?I LOVE that it is orange, so it can be seen in a darkened studio setting, so we don't trip all over it.? I LOVE that it has a right angle head, so it drops down directly from the side of my camera. HOWEVER, IT WILL NOT FIT INTO A 5Ds OR A 5D IV with the USB cable protector / saddle attached to the side of the camera, It will fit fine without. I live with the Canon USB protector as a permanent fixture on my bodies, I am a studio photographer, every image I shoot, it a tethered to a computer situation. The cord butts into the bottom screw on the saddle, preventing it from inserting into the port.?? So I did what had to be done, I cut the bottom screw to shorten it, and thereby cleared the way for the cable to plug in properly. BUT then the stupid thing is very very thin at the plastic part forming the right angle head, LIKE much thinner than you would expect. So when I got it to plug in, it wobbled around and kept falling out. UGG ! To remedy, I got out my photo black set tape, gave it a few wraps to thicken the head, until it fit snugly within the saddle, hanging down clearing the formerly long screw. After about an hour to figure all this out, the cable fits properly, and securely, and works perfectly fine. In the end, I would rather have a high quality cable, orange, coming out of my camera at a right angle, than the cheapie shooting out the side, TORKING THE PORT to the point of repair (2x now in 2years) , fighting? gravity and constantly being tripped over. If you are a real deal photographer, you know that photogs have no problem modifying a piece of gear to get it where you need it to be.? Cutting a screw, and wrapping tape around it for a fix, is hardly brain surgery. Somewhat annoying to do so, but the end result it totally worth it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Yep. I would and will buy it again... and again and again an An essential component in my work flow. Just long enough. The only caution I would offer is, if you live or work in a part o the world where easy access to this type of gear is difficult or slow, I would recommend purchasing several at a time. The big connector (USB A-type) seems to fail all to often and usually at the worst time. Having a backup is key. I would give it four or five stars but for the frailty of that connector.
