Tether Tools Introduces TetherPro USB-C Cables for Tethered Photography

We’re excited to introduce a line of TetherPro USB-C cables for photographers shooting tethered with cameras or computers that feature a USB-C connection. To date, dongles, hubs and frustratingly short connections have hindered the USB-C tethering experience for photographers. That frustration is now a challenge of the past.

Tether Tools Invites Photographers to Ditch the Dongle

As technology innovation marches forward, computers, cameras, and storage devices are converging and require significantly more bandwidth to maintain the interactive experience users have come to expect. The new USB-C port took center stage in the creative community when Apple released the new MacBook Pro with no standard USB port, instead opting to use four USB-C ports. Without the standard USB port on their new laptop, photographers were forced to add a USB-C to USB-A adapter to their tethered workflow to use the new MacBook Pro.

TetherPro USB-C cables provide, for the first time ever, a solution for photographers to shoot tethered directly from their camera to a computer or laptop that utilizes a USB-C port. No adapters or dongles necessary. The TetherPro USB-C cable product line will feature 12 cables for each camera data port, all available in either black or high-visibility orange, specifically designed for tethered photography and image transfer.

Whether working in-studio or on location, Tether Tools is committed to making a photographer’s photo shoot go as smooth as possible. Eliminating the dongle and providing a single cable for photographers, regardless of the camera or computer in their workflow, is a tremendous advance in simplifying the unique needs of a photographer.

Shoot Tethered with Cameras or Computers that Feature a USB-C Connection

We now offer USB-C to USB-C cables, and USB-A to USB-C cables for those using USB-C Cameras, such as Hasselblad H6 or X series, Panasonic GH5, Sony a7R III and other new cameras on the market. For photographers who have USB 2.0 and 3.0 cameras and have upgraded to USB-C computers, TetherPro USB-C to each existing camera port type will also be available. And to serve those who would like to simply extend an existing cable to a USB-C computer port, a 15-foot USB-A to USB-C adapter joins the TetherPro solutions line. TetherPro USB-C cables will be available in a variety of lengths up 15 feet with the option to add USB Extensions for increased length.

Our goal is to provide photographers with the optimal cable to meet their unique needs for tethered photography, without the use of dongles, whether they have a USB-C port on their camera, computer, or both. We’ve worked diligently to optimize the performance and are excited to bring TetherPro USB-C cables to the market after extensive development and testing. TetherPro USB-C Cables are intended for data transfer and will not support powering USB-C devices at long distances.
