If you are an avid instagram user, you have probably noticed that almost all professionals tether their cameras with bright orange cables to a computer, there is a lot of kit involved in this and finding all the parts can be tricky when you don't know what you are looking for.
I got into tethering about 7 years ago with a Canon camera and Adobe Lightroom. I have since moved over to Capture One (which will be an article in itself), but the general premise has remained. There are very few occasions where I wont tether, but for the most part, my camera is firmly connected to my computer.
Thanks to companies like Tether Tools (no endorsement here) it has become far more off the peg and far less DIY to build a decent tether table or trolley.
In this video, I go over the technical and hardware related aspects to my tethering set up. From the right type of trolley from Amazon to the way I make sure I don't have massive repair bills for my cameras. As well as this, I cover all the bits of grip and technical gear that I have on my trolley at all times in order to quickly and efficiently shoot. I couldn't work as a commercial photographer without this, and I spend as much time at my tether trolley as I do at my desk. When I first wanted to start tethering the enter process seemed shrouded in mystery. Thankfully, the internet has made it far easier for all of us to find exactly what we need.
What is your current tether set up like? And what would you like to change about it?
