For commercial photographers, technical issues on set, including a dropped tethered connection are incredibly frustrating, especially if you have clients on set. If you’re using the latest and greatest USB 3.0 camera from Nikon, Canon, Phase One, Mamiya Leaf, or Pentax you need to invest in a TetherBoost Pro. It’s not a matter of ‘nice to have’, it’s truly a necessity.
This streamlined solution alleviates current frustrations among photographers experiencing dropped signals when shooting with USB 3.0 cameras and computers. These issues are due to camera and computer manufacturers’ varying USB 3.0 firmware versions and the additional power required to transfer images via USB 3.0 vs USB 2.0.
The TetherBoost Pro regulates the power from DSLR/Digital Backs to the computer, eliminating these limitations and allowing your tethered connection to operate up to full USB3 speeds for tethering connections from 15 to 65 feet without any loss in signal. The TetherBoost Pro also features the TrueConnect LED indicator which ensures signal connectivity between a photographer’s DSLR, Mirrorless or Digital Back camera and a computer.
Included in the TetherBoost Pro is a JerkStopper Extension Lock, an effective locking device that keeps cable ends protected from frustrating disconnects, damage, and electrical hazards.
