USB 3 Cable and Extension for Studio Photography Tethered Shooting
Growing Trend of USB3 Tethered Shooting
A few years ago the DSLR cameras that support tethered shooting typically adopted mini or micro USB 2.0 connectors and transfer the image data with the computer via the USB 2.0 bus speed.
While starting from Nikon’s D800 first adapted the USB 3.0 connectivity port, more and more cameras such as Sony a7R3 came to the market start to supporting USB3 transfer speed via either USB 3.0 micro B or Type-C port.
Benefit of USB3 Tethered Shooting
- 10 times faster than USB 2 in image transfer speed
- Significantly reduced shutter response latency
- Shorter capture time for continuous shot
Extend the USB3 connection for Your Tether
Although USB3 provides a significant advantage in transfer speed, the maximum cable length of USB 3.0 is often limited at 10 - 15 ft. Meanwhile in a lot of photography studio set up, the distance from the camera to the computer are much longer than this maximum distance.
With Newnex’s break through FireNEX-uLINK-EX repeater technology, our active USB3 extension cable can extend connection range over 50 ft. (16m) for USB3 tethered shooting practices. The male to female configuration gives user the flexible choice to connect it with their own camera cable, such as a right angle type-C or micro B cable fit for their most proper setup .
