Tether Tools CU1917 overview

  • 1Description

The 16', orange TetherPro USB 2.0 Active Extension Cable from Tether Tools allows longer tethering distances without worrying about signal errors or corrupt data transfers. With this cable, signals and data transfers going in and out of the cable are buffered to ensure consistent signal quality, meeting USB's highest electrical and timing specifications.

Passive cables over 16' (4.88 m) in length, for the purpose of data transmission, may result in signal errors or noise and are not recommended. Up to four active USB extensions and one passive 15' (4.57 m) USB can be daisy chained before any drop-off in signal or quality is detected.

The set-up is simple, just plug the male end of the cable into the computer and then plug your camera or other device's USB cable into the female end of this cable so the repeater is closest to the device and not the computer.
Drop-off in signals can be avoided by daisy chaining up to four active USB extensions and one passive 15' (4.57 m) USB together.
Signals and data transfers going in and out of the cable are buffered to ensure consistent signal quality, meeting USB's highest electrical and timing specifications.

    TetherPro USB 2.0 Active Extension Cable (16', Orange) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly that! I've gained the mobility I was severely lacking in the studio.I can now climb the ladder to adjust the lights and see exactly the effect it has on the subject thru the laptop screen with live view.For someone working alone in a studio that's a really big plus.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great This product works exactly as it should, and is of good quality. I previously purchased the TT USB 3.0 Active Extension Cable, which said it is USB 2.0 compatible. I am sure it is USB 2.0 compatible from a data standpoint, but the USB 2.0 ports on my MacBook Pro computer did not have the power required to energize it (I did not see this information anywhere on the B&H or TT web sites, but a call to TT confirmed it).The orange color is great. I had a friend trip over his black USB cable and cause some equipment to fall - so very glad I bought the orange.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is great! I use it to tether my Canon 5D Mark III to my laptop for use with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom when shooting portraits.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from sturdy cable; does the job good cable connect to 5d mark 2

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excelent product I'm using this active extension with the miniB to USB cable that comes for default with my camera to shot tether; also this way I don't have to mess with different miniB connector types (5 pin /8 pin) from my other cameras brands. For my studio the 16' works great, maybe in the future I'd need more length but that wouldn't be a problem as I can add another active extension to avoid signal errors. Great product for my workflow!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well Got this to obviously extend my reach. Use it extensively to get closer to the feeders since I don't have a long lens and this along with the tether keeps me far enough away to get the shots, and the cables are a lot cheaper than a lens. Just hope the birds don't decide to drop a load on my camera LOL.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cable This cable has been fantastic for tethering my Sony Mirrorless. I am taking product shots where the display isn't always optimal for clarity of the shot; now I can review on a 32 monitor while taking the burden off my camera and stretching the battery life.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Room to Move Tethering your camera to your computer opens up great freedom. See your images large while having the ability to tweak for the perfect image while walking around to let your creative juices flow.
