TetherPro USB & FireWire cables, all 15ft (4.6m) are premium, high capacity cables designed for photo transfer at fast speed while shooting tethered. Gold plating and ferrite cores reduce noise and signal errors for the most reliable tethering experience.

JerkStopper Cable Management:
Cables and power cords can dislodge from cameras and computers due to normal movement and activity.

The patented JerkStopper cable retention device provides an anchor point allowing slack in the cord preventing damage or dislodging.
